Style: German Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A clever woman once said; ‘fair is foul and foul is fair’. On that note we threw in a young, unacknowledged hoppy pilsner gave it a limp, wrinkly flavor and finished it off with an insulting high price that will give you a foul feeling in your mouth. That’s why we name Evil Twin Brewing’s Low Life the Golddigger of Beers.

A pretty good, hop forward Pilsner. Lots of earthy, herbal hop bitterness, giving it a sort of bitter, tea-like quality. As it warmed, the black tea flavors really came out in the hops. A sweet malty backbone with a frothy white head. This one has a very creamy mouthfeel. Not your usual crisp Pilsner. I really enjoyed a pint of this and would have it again. Evil twin has never put out a bad beer, IMO.

12oz bottle into a weizen glass.

A: Pours a clear straw/copper with 1" white head that fizzles out quickly. Retention is so-so, lacing is nonexistent.

S: Very pleasant sweetish malt with just the slightest hop touch. Straightforward & very enticing.

T: Comes on with more of that sweet malt & gradually increasing bitterness through the mid palate. Finish is perhaps a touch heavy-handed on the bitterness.

M: Perfect carb with a nice bready malt body. Finishes properly crisp.

O: Solid little Pils.

Now available in midlands of Ireland where it was a refreshing beer on a fine summers evening.

Evil Twin Low Life

A- Tall boy delivers a slightly hazy medium golden brew into two pint glasses. The head is white, frothy and retains fairly well. Large sheet of lace at the top and a few spots below.

S- Fairly mild overall with herbal and spicy hops leading to pale malt tones like bread and cracker. A bit grassy and something reminds me of pale fruits.

T- The hops gain some prominence on the palate as they are grassy, herbal and fairly spicy. Hints of pale fruit like grape, light stone fruit, cereal grains and bready cracker. A bit sweet for me.

MF- Light bodied and the defining adjective I'd use is crisp. Just a bit puffy and frothy and would feel thin in any other style. High end carbonation.

Its a solid drinker but as the description ironically ironically suggests its not worth the money. Also doesn't touch the great Pilsners even the Western Hemisphere ones.

Pours well but has absolutely no flavour. Refreshing yes, but very bland

Very little aroma, just slight spiciness comes up at the nose. Beauty cloudy golden wheat appearance. Wonderfully effervescent, this really is a smashing pilsner. Plenty of flavor, but restrained. The hop presence here works in the traditions role o balancer rather than focus.
