Today’s beer is one from a relatively local brewery to us (Cherry Hill, New Jersey). The brewery took over the old Flying Fish space a few years ago and Val and I visit a few times a year. They also have craft festivals in the brewery, which Val likes to go to. They’ve also been popping up in my local Buy-Rite in Pennington, so I can get their beers pretty easily. I also like that they exclusively can their regular beers. This beer is their pilsener, so let’s see hot it was.
Style: Czech Pilsner
Trivia: This beer comes in at 45 IBUs.
Random: There’s not much of a description about their beer on the website.
This beer poured with a full finger and a half of pure-white head. It took awhile to dissipated and left lots of lacing on the glass. The body was a perfectly clear, straw-yellow with a lot of carbonation visible. The nose had some mineral water, river stones, grass and yeast. The taste started with grain and quickly went into wheat, river stones, barley and then a baking soda note, which took away from the overall flavor. The body was on the medium side for the style with generous amounts of carbonation. The finish was quick with grain and baking soda. A can of this was $1.83, which came to $.15 per ounce, which wasn’t a bad price for the beer and it’s becoming more widely available around the Garden State. This wasn’t my favorite beer of the style, but I wouldn’t refuse one if it was handed to me.
