It's a shame so few beer enthusiasts know anything much about what makes a good pilsner. This one is right up there with the best I've had including fresh on tap in Europe. So clean! Perfect appearance, clear with nice white head and lacing. Smell is classic pils malt with a touch of lemon spice. Taste is identical, very smooth, mild spice, super refreshing but with a decent amount of mouthfeel especially for a pils. I really can't think of many US pilsners I've enjoyed as much as this one.

A friend of mine brought a growler of Single Cut's 1933 Queens Lagrrr over this weekend, directly from their tap room in Astoria.

Really clean, crisp, easy-drinking with some bite.

Paired wonderfully with some grilled food I was having at the time.

Thick white head, crystal clear and golden body in the glass. It must be über filtered to get this clear.

I had this beer last year in their tap room grand-opening (it was packed!) and thought it to be average. I chalked that up to an ambitious new brewery still getting their feet wet, because their other offering (Dean I believe) was top notch. This newest batch of 1933 Queens Lager is really good and I'm so glad I got to try it again. I could see this being a great go-to/everyday craft beer, I hope my local gets it one of these days.

On tap at the brewery...

A: Perfectly clear. Thick white head

S: Classic pils smell, I also got a light vanilla nose

T: Hoppy! Definitely more assertive than other Pils I've had recently (Lagunitas, S.Adams, Crisp, Stella). A bit more malt too than others so there is a balance. Hops are grassy, spicy, and a mild touch of citrus to my palate.

M: Very clean

O: I'm definitely a fan of SingleCut's hoppy ales, this is the first of their "lagrrrs!" I've tried. IMHO it may be closer to a German Pils than Czech. But it's unique and I give them points for going in a different direction than the typical Pils produced. I really enjoyed it

Poured on tap at Churchkey into a snifter glass.

Quite a pale nearly straw colored body but with some bright brass gold to it, and very crystal clear. No head given, just a small collar. Some really nice pinhead rising bubbles though sporadically.

Nose is big. Like a giant dough ball. Minor husk but big rolled pizza dough and biscuit cracker. Hop angle not noticeable with the malt distinction quite blurred.

Palate follows the nose. Once again a giant liquid bread bowl but a hint of crisp on the finish. Large baked bread sense but a bit industrial? Palate is extremely dense but manages some crisp snap. Hop angle only comes out with some grass when beer warms.

Really off kilter and a bit odd but very enjoyable.
