Sole Euro Spliff

Posted: March 29, 2017 in German Pilsener, Reviews, Sole Artisan Ales

This was another beer that I had at The Pour House. I was looking for a light beer to throw back while watching sportsball and this delivered.

ABV: 5%

Style: German Pilsener

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “WE ARE … A GYPSY BREWERY. Brewing is in our bones. We craft our glorious libations under the roof of another brewery that we respect and trust. We practice our craft on some of the finest and most technologically advanced equipment that has been invented. Occasionally, we pack our bags and hop over to Europe to collaborate with foreign friends in forward thinking fermentation. WE BREW … CURIOUS & CULINARY ALES. We search for the outlandish while respecting the balance of culinary flavors. Beer is food, and our food is good. Each of our offerings is crafted to pique your interests, excite your senses, and challenge your taste buds. We want to create a sensory experience that provides sustenance for your soul. OUR OBSESSION … IS FLAVOR. We ensure every part of our ales, from the packaging to ingredients are as serious as we are. We support local hop farms, Pennsylvania malt-houses, and other farmers to provide us with special ingredients (like honey, maple syrup, herbs and spices) that are unique to our region.”

Random: The brewery website has no information on the website about the individual beers, which is one of my biggest pet peeves.

The beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated slowly. It left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was clear with lots of carbonation visible, which was a good sign. The nose was filled with mineral water, grass and stones. The taste was crisp and clean with the same stone flavor. Grass was slightly more muted in the taste. It also had a pleasant minerality to it. The body was thin and crisp with generous carbonation. It had a quick finish with grass. This beer was exactly what I wanted, easy drinking and clean. I would have this one again.
