Evil Twin Low Life

Posted: June 4, 2015 in Evil Twin Brewing, German Pilsener, Reviews

Evil Twin beers always seem to end up in my cart when I go to Half Time. It’s not normally a bad thing because they put out solid stuff. This was one of the few beers that I had from them that I had no idea what to expect, especially after reading how they marketed it. Let’s see how it was.


ABV: 5.5%

Style: German Pilsener

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A clever woman once said; ‘fair is foul and foul is fair’. On that note, we threw in a young, unacknowledged hoppy pilsner gave it a limp, wrinkly flavor and finished it off with an insulting high price that will give you a foul feeling in your mouth. That’s why we name Evil Twin Brewing’s Low Life the Golddigger of Beers.”

Random: This was brewed at Two Roads in Stratford, Connecticut.

This beer poured with a two finger, pure white head that dissipated slowly and left no lacing on the glass. It did leave a slight crown. The body was a hazy, yellow color with light carbonation present, which was surprising for the style. The nose was very grainy with grass and not much else, but this style lends itself to that. The taste had the mineral water quality that I’ve come to expect with grain and grass. This beer wasn’t pulling any punches. It had a medium thick body with light carbonation that needed to be dialed up. The finish was short with cereal grains. I haven’t made it a secret that I tend not to enjoy this style. It’s a simple beer and quenched my thirst, but isn’t something that I would go back for again especially for $3.49 for the can (which was $22 per ounce).
