Life On Tap Episode #281: Ardent Italian Pilsner

Dan dreams of Neapolitan pizza while sipping Ardent Italian Pilsner care of @RVABeermiester earlier during the pandemic.

Ardent Craft Ales Italian Pilsner

STYLE: Italian Pilsner
INGREDIENTS: Pilsner malt; Dry hopped with Yakima Chief’s Pacific Crest hops blend
ABV: 4.8%
IBU: 26
AVAILABILITY: 16-Ounce cans, Draft (Limited)

Stats above taken from the brewery’s can and Untappd.


Light to medium yellow, crystal clear hazy, with a fluffy, white head and some lacing.


Herbal and earthy notes…kind of like a “New World” noble hop essence.


Earthy and herbal notes continue on the palate with a clean, refreshing finish.


Crisp, dry, and light mouthfeel and a good amount of “scrubbing bubbles” carbonation.


I could totally drink a ton of these, given the clean and refreshing nature. Food-wise (at the time), I was really feeling Neapolitan pizza with plenty of sausage, meatballs, or pepperoni depending on your preference.

Thank you so much to Sterling aka @RVABeermeister for sharing this one!.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
