BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Two Roads Brewing Company
Connecticut, United States
tworoadsbrewing.com

Style: German Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Traditional in concept with a Two Roads twist…dry hops. We use a combination of classic German as well as American hop and malt varieties in our Pils. We renovated a 100 year-old factory building and designed this Pils to have “extra” aroma…so, pardon the pun! Crisp…refreshing…refined.

Birght, clear golden. Nice head with some lacing.
The smell is earthy Euro hops. Really nice.
Starts off with a hint of bread dough, then quickly the earthy, crisp hops take over. There are a lot of layers of grass, lemon, hints of honey, and wonderful noble hop goodness.
Pilsners are not a style I usually get excited about , but this one is special for sure.
Drinkabilty at 5% is really nice.
Absolutely one of the best pils I've had !

Semi Cloudy gold. Frothy white head.
Smell is herbaceous. Cracker. Biscuit. White bread. Taste is the same as the smell. Feel is high carbonation. Very good.

Poured from a bottle.

This beer has a straw color to it, with a brilliant, but quickly-dispersing, white head.

Aroma is a little bit grassy, but actually smells almost like a macro lager with a little added hop. I was a little nervous when I first poured it, as it didn't smell like a very good beer, but things improved from there. As it warms up, more hoppiness comes out and a bit more sweetness, although there's still a corny character to it.

Taste is hop-forward and well-balanced. Definitely appear to be noble or otherwise german hops, giving the beer a wonderful earthy character.

Mouthfeel is heavy on the carbonation, but otherwise very smooth, even a little towards the creamy side.

As I mentioned, upon first appearance, this beer seemed to be a hopped up american lager. I'm glad I bought a sixer, though - I was pleasantly surprised after tasting the beer, and would say it's one of the better American pilsners out there. I've only seen this brewery's beers in one place, but will definitely be on the lookout for any other offerings, and this one again.

Delicious. Absolutely perfect session beer to pound a few by the pool in the summer. So refreshing.

A bit more tart and expensive than other pilsners, but an excellent beer.
