Care of Jeff and Chris at Bottle Makes Three, Dan finally samples The Slow Pour Pils from Bierstadt Lagerhaus earlier during the pandemic.
STYLE: German Pilsner
INGREDIENTS: German Pilsner and Acidulated Malt; Hallertau Mittelfruh hops
AVAILABILITY: 16-Ounce cans, Crowlers, Draft (Year-Round)
Stats above taken from the brewery’s can/website and/or Untappd.
Clear, golden yellow in color with a small white head using the slow pour method.
Luscious bread and grain notes from the malt with a floral bouquet from the hops.
Bready malt continues with a gentle, bitter kiss from the hops.
Creamy mouthfeel but dry and crisp on the finish after gliding across the tongue with a smooth level of carbonation.
This beer was/is well worth the wait to try and to pour. I would say this is one, if not the most true to style on offer in the United States. If you make it to Denver, this needs to be a stop for you. Pairing-wise, German beer hall food would slay with this and the full array of styles on offer.
Thank you so much to Jeff and Chris for sharing this one!.
Cheers and remember:
Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
