“A classic Czech inspired Pilsner that starts off clean and finishes crisp. Tahoe Pilz has a clear, clean look and feel that delivers refreshment in any season.”
Appearance: Crystal clear light straw golden pour with a sturdy two finger head. It slowly retracts and leaves a thick blotchy lace on the glass.
Aroma: Gives off that hybrid kinda feel…ultra clean with crisp grainy malts and grassy Noble hops but there is a slightly lifted lemon citrus character which, by the way, works in extremely well. Big notes of straw/hay punching through, some spicy yeast and doughy white bread crusts. Sensational!
Flavour: Exquisitely balanced. It all just comes together in a perfect marriage. Beautiful grainy malt structure with the grassy, spicy and citrusy hops cutting right through. The yeast providing that subtle touch of skunky spice. Lovely dry and bitter finish with lingering grassy-ness in the tail.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, ultra clean and light on. Really vibrant Co2. 5.3% ABV is slightly lifted for the style but it’s hidden nicely.
Overall: We’ve always believed the best way to judge a brewery is by their lager. Mostly because there’s no high ABV, huge hop or malt bills and adjuncts to hide any mistakes behind. It’s just your 4 to the floor ingredients (water, hops, malt and yeast). This is near perfect and sums up the brewery as a whole.
