Notes: Kill Pils - 5.0% Changing Dry Hopped Pilsner

Lagers have a bad reputation in history so this is our attempt to avenge that. Each changing dry-hop profile is unrelenting in being aromatic & flavourful. Each hopping schedule is calculated & well executed in the final beer. Clean, crisp and unrelenting in flavour and aroma, based on our hops of choice.

L- Very pale straw. The tiniest hint of haze, pours with a 2mm snow-white head.
S- Very mild, I just get some light grain.
T- Somewhat hoppy-dry on the front, then a grainy middle, with a pretty hoppy flourish into the finish. The hops come over as pretty trad-tasting to me; no lychee + grapefruit notes to see (I'm glad).
F- Comes over as a lager with a more prominent, though trad, dry hopping. All around pretty clean tasting and drinking.
O- Pleasant enough, would be refreshing if it were a hot summers day. I'm not pursuaded that there is enough distinctive, different and desirable going on here for me to buy it again. Perhaps more your thing if you're into say a notional 'double-hopped lager', ie 2* as hoppy as is usual.

Bought from Real Ale, London W9. 330ml can £2.66 BBE: May2021
Not sure if this beer is made with a variable range of hops, the lable reads: 'A changing dry hopped pils. Manadarina, Bavaria, Sorachi Ace, Minstrel'.

Bottle at The Miller, London, England

A: The beer is hazy light yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high frothy white head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of pale and pilsener malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of pilsener malts with notes of grainy malts and hints of floral and grassy hops. three is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit clean and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a little hoppy and crisp but overall comes through as a pilsener.

a dry hopped pilsener, i had higher hopes for this one. not sure what the hops are in this batch, i know the change each round, but this isnt as light or crisp as i wanted to be, and seems like a weird choice to put in a cask, which is how i had it, seems to kind of naturally diminish the textural elements of high carbonation and crispness that make a pils a pils. its got a little color to it, darker than most in its field, and doesnt have much life in this format. the hops are more bitter than flavorful too, india pale lager type, it helps the finish have some bite in the absence of a cleaner lager fermentation, but the flavor isnt really there, nothing unique about the hop profile anyway. medium bodied, some minerals in the mix, kind of off balance for the style for me, as there isnt a lot of character from the lager yeast either. just kind of average for me, i really expected something a little different, a cool twist on a classic style, but it was not to be. backing the bitterness down and getting some more evident dry hopping happening would be a step in the right direction. ill have to try this in the bottle instead of the cask, i suspect it presents a little better that way...

Dry-hopped, not your ‘run-of-the-mill’ Pilsner. Looks great with a thick, creamy head that leaves a spiders web of lacing. But the dominant, earthy, green tea hop profile lies heavy. The smooth, fresh, & clean characteristics of a traditional pilsner are buried deep. Not my cup of tea.
