When Val and I were at Savor, we tried Uinta’s Lime Pilsner and absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find it anywhere at home. One of the times we went down to DC, we saw this version and had to bring it home.
Style: German Pilsener
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “An insatiable desire to explore drives our team. We captured the impulse to follow an unmarked trail down a canyon or drop in on a new single-track run and translated it in our craft. This itch for adventure helps us dream up bold new beers and approach our tried-and-true brews with fresh eyes (and taste buds).”
Random: There is no information about this beer on the brewery website.
The beer poured with a small, half finger of white head. It dissipated quickly, but left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy yellow with no visible carbonation. The nose was filled with fruit, almost like a fruit soda. I couldn’t pick up any of the normal pilsner scents due to the amount of mango and lime notes. The taste was all fruit. It started with a lot of lime juice and then went into some mango puree. There was a touch of malt at the end of the sip. The body was light and had a lot of carbonation. It had a quick finish with mango. Don’t get me wrong, I liked this beer. It was an easy drinker and would make for a great poolside beer. But, I think this is way more of a fruit beer than a pils. Either way, it is worth a try.
