I didn’t know that Almanac had a pilsner, but when I saw it on the shelf, I had to have it.
Style: German Pilsener
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Almanac’s Craft Pilsner is a crisp, dry-hopped lager that provides a West Coast twist on the traditional German style. Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe, and Mandarina Bavaria hops provide a melon and citrus nose backed by 100% Pilsner malt. This beer is crushable, always begging for another sip and pairs well with sushi, outdoor grilling and tames spicy Thai and Mexican dishes. Our Fresh Beer Series delivers the best in farm fresh beer. Big flavors, bold yeast characters and huge hop aromas reflect our rich California agricultural bounty. Every beer is brewed, packaged and shipped with an eye towards maximum freshness. All of our Fresh Beers are designed to pair with a wide variety of cuisine—so enjoy a pour of The Golden State’s most flavorful beer…”
Random: The beer is available in cans and on draft.
The beer poured with a two finger, pure white head. It dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was quite cloudy for a pilsner with high carbonation. The nose was grassy with mineral water and a slightly sweetness from pilsner malt. The taste was very crisp and clean with mineral water with stones and grass. It had a touch of honey sweetness. The body was thin with high carbonation, but wasn’t to the point of being watery. It had a quick finish with mineral water. The beer was $2.50 for a can ($.21 per ounce). This was a really enjoyable beer from one of my favorite breweries. I would highly recommend this.
