BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Arrogant Brewing
California, United States
arrogantbastard.com

Style: German Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
For far too long the tyrannical industrialized beer overlords have disgraced and cheapened the noble heritage of the pilsner with their relentless multi-generational downward drive to commercialized homogenization. Over decades, this once vaulted style has been slowly and methodically gutted, bringing forth a soulless and anemic result, all the while spending billions in advertising to convince the unwitting public that their fizzy yellow end result was beer. Well, I will not have it. We are striking back for true craft by stealing the pilsner back from their evil clutches, and restoring it to its almighty glory. They do it cheaply. We do it right. Choose vapidity, or choose righteousness...but whatever you do, choose wisely.

Cutting to the chase, this one leans a little further to the Czech side of pils than most other Germans while preserving a softer finish than a Czech. Overall, it's a very nice beer.

Pours a clear light gold with 2 fingers of white head. Smells of malt and some citrus. Tastes of sweet malt, citrus, and some light hops. Light mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Overall a very good very. May be different than the average pilsener, but in my opinion, better than the average pilsener

Sorry to be the downer here: this is a citrusy, very hoppy pilsner that feels Americanized to the extreme. It's decent but not what I look for in a traditional Pilsner. The body isn't enough, lacks the grainy malt, there isn't enough crispness in the finish and the hops are too fruity lending a lot of citrus. About what you'd expect from Stone pushing the high end of the abv and hoppiness for the style. It sort of works but lacks some key traditional pilsner flavors.

16 oz. Can

Pours a very nice slightly hazy golden yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, slight malt, citrusy. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, kinda malty, nice citrus note. Medium body, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew. Nice to see it around here.

S: smells like pine, herbs, citrus and light grains.

L: It pours straw gold with a light haze as rapidly rising bubbles join a 1" white, lacy cap with fair retention.

T: the flavors begin with bread crumb giving way to citrusy, juicy hops, herbs, pine, lemon and tangerine. The bitterness is moderately high and is a blend of citrus rind and herb. The malt flavors are medium to medium low, hop flavors are medium high. A beginning hint of sweetness goes bone dry by the finish. the be grows more citrusy as it warms.

F: Creaminess, body and carbonation are medium.

O. This is a very full flavored and refreshing beer.
