Southern Tier Brewing Company
New York, United States

Style: Czech Pilsener

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer may have a cheeky name, but don’t be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beer’s smooth character.

Eurotrash Pilz pours a clear gold color with a tiny head. Overall, this was a pretty surprising beer from Southern Tier. The aroma is light, with noble hops and light malts. The taste has a light dose of noble hops over a light malt base. A wet dog sensation comes through halfway in - it's been a while since I've had a macro-styled beer so it's almost novel. The mouthfeel is light and crisp, and the drinkability is great. It's a pretty much pitch perfect take on the Euro Lager style, but more drinkable and flavorful. I like it.

A - Pours with a small head of white foam that dissipates quickly and leaves little lace. The body is a clear, golden color.

S - Bready notes of pilsner malt with some subtle, spicy hops.

T - Bread and biscuit notes up front with light, spicy hops in the middle. Finishes with sweet graham cracker notes and herbal bitterness.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a fairly dry finish.

D - This is a reasonable example of the style, though it is lacking some of the intensity of the better European examples. The hops are present, but a bit subdued and the pilsner malt character never quite comes out in its full glory. Nevertheless, it is quite drinkable and better than the average Euro-style lager.

A: Aggressive pour yields 1/2 finger of fizzy white head with good retention for a pilsener. Dusting of thin white head remains after 40 seconds or so. Crystal clear lemon juice yellow. More head please!
S: No skunk. Clean bready grain with spicy hop.
T: Clean and bready with moderate hop bite that balances perfectly at first! Hop get a tad too aggressive halfway through though. Slight grapefruit. I wish the balance lasted throughout - bread fades and hops dominate. Grassy hop finish
M: Biting hop finish makes it a tad less likely for this to be a session for me.
O: Perfect for this sunny mid-80s day. A decent take on the style, but just a tad imbalanced towards hops.
