Notes: Our latest pilsner blends Perle + Hallertau Blanc + Nelson into an uplifting conversation of bright key lime, sparkling white grape cider, and overripe passion fruit. We can all use a PEP TALK now and then, can't we?

L: straw gold and clear, highly carbonated decently thick white head

S: piney/floral, some citrus notes

T: piney/floral, bit sharp on the finish

This is the perfect modern interpretation of a Pils. Clean lager look and mouth feel, but with a phenomenal hop character (old world floral, with new age fruity/lemon/white wine hops as well). The hops are not over powering, like a Pils should be. This is one beer that can please your non-craft and hop head friends both. I’m going on a limb here and saying it is the BEST Pils you’ve ever tasted. This one stays in my fridge all the time.

Poured into a snifter glass. Slightly hazy look with a yellow-straw color and a thick white head that slowly settled. Nice lacing in the glass. The aroma was floral, spicy, and earthy with a hint of citrus and faint bready malt. The taste showcased the clean Pilsner malt with a bready and slightly sweet flavor. The bitterness was moderate and maybe a touch less than other German Pilsners that I've enjoyed. Definitely more fruity in character than floral. The Nelson is there providing white wine and a faint dankness, and the passion fruit was also there but really subtle. Overall a well-constructed beer but the hop profile was not as flavorful as I expected.
