Today’s selection is a beer that I originally tried at the brewery and then picked up a can to bring home. Let’s see how it was.
Style: German Pilsener
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “We’ve been having a lot of fun here at the brewery re-creating classic styles and a German Pils was the first style that popped into our heads. We all enjoy drinking hop forward beers but we also enjoy our German Lagers as well. Now that we are able to meet our production demands with our other flagship beers we decided we can have some fun. Brau Pils was our newest summer seasonal alongside El Hefe Speaks, NOW YEAR-ROUND. Brau Pils is a straight forward Pilsner with a light body, moderate carbonation and an assertive yet restrained hop character. Aromas of earthy, spicy noble hops are chased by a rich, cracker-like note backed up with clean, malty notes and a neutral lager yeast profile. This beer is made to help refresh on those hot summer dog days of DC.”
Random: This beer comes in at 28 IBUs.
The beer poured with a three finger, ecru colored head. It dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was clear and straw yellow with a lot of carbonation. The nose had grain and lemon with a touch of mineral water. The taste was very crisp with grain and a touch of grass with some hops. River stones and mineral water came through too. The body was on the lighter side with a lot of carbonation. It had a quick finish with river stones. A can was $2.17 and was $.18 per ounce. This was an easy drinking pilsner that would pair well with any food.
