I'm trying this at the brewery. It poured a clear yellow with no head and no lace. The scent had faint grass flare. The taste was peppery and bitety. Not overly easy to drink. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its ok.

As Dry Dock brewers get their feet wet with lager beer, their taste for Preacher Pils lands them smack-dab between what's expected of the malty-rich Czech "bohemian" lager and drier and hoppier versions of Northern German.

The pilsner's lightly hazed, straw appearance is adorned with a foamy white, persistent cap with broken lace in its wake. Refreshingly tart of apple and lemon, the medium-strength scent is redolent of fresh baking bread and musty dough. Crisp in taste, the beer's flavor is majorly pilsner malt and lightly of raw grain while its floral upstart turns playfully delicate sweet.

But across the palate, the malt dissolves effortlessly and invites rapid dryness. With floral sweetness dissipating its the esters of bright green apple and citrusy lemon for a mild acidic offset to malt and grain. Lightly sulfurs play on the finish to give an added boost to the fruit impressions. Its sharply bitter finish of lemongrass, herb and tea leaf seems bold because of the retracting sweetness.

Medium-light and drying, the beer's evaporative cooling leaves the bitterness slightly minty, piney and gin-like as a refreshing calm soothes the senses and quenches the thirst. Its bitter aftertaste exposes a mild hop-derived astringency with an equally mild texture of grain.

Medium-light for style, more like northern german lager. crisp, clean, refreshing.
