BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Zero Gravity Craft Brewery / American Flatbread
Vermont, United States
zerogravitybeer.com

Style: German Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A crisp, easy-drinking Pilsner beer that is influenced by the great brewing regions of the world, but that charts its own course through this elegant style. The Noble hops play a key role, but allow the malt to take center stage, providing a clean and satisfying quencher that is as welcoming as the Green State itself.

Normally like these czechs, but this one smelled like wet, dirty socks and tasted about the same. Def not going back!

What happen to this beer? I had liked it last year. It smelled a little like the carpet in after a big party in college. I never tasted the carpet. Hopefully this was just a dirty keg or something.

Bland, nothing special, odd aftertaste... Reminds me of cheap light beer. Disappointed.

Serving: Can poured into a Sam Adams glass.

Look: Straw color, good clarity but shows a lot of small protein flakes in bright light. Head is small with poor retention.

Smell: Mostly bready/sweet malt with some herbal hops... maybe a touch of licorice?

Taste: Like the smell. Flavors are subdued. The finish fades fast, ending with stinging carbonation.

Feel: A little weak all around. Very clean but nothing distinctive. In particular, could use some more IBU's in the finish.

Overall: Clean and refreshing but could have a lot more character. Definitely not a Bohemian pils. The brewery website simply says 'pilsener' and the word doesn't appear on the can. It makes the cut as a German pils but treads perilously close to American mega-brew.

On tap at American Flatbread Burlington. Served in a short pint.

Appearance - Slightly hazy yellow. Medium white head and a bit of lacing.

Smell - Grassy hops. Pilsner malt. Strong noble hop aroma.

Taste - Crisp hop flavor up front. Dies down without every going away. Pilsner malt is secondary. Hop bite in the back.

Mouthfeel - Medium light. Crisp. Well carbonated.

Overall - It's pretty good, but intense in its grassiness.
