Cigar City Brewing Patio Pils - Pre-Prohibition Pilsner
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Cigar City Brewing Patio Pils - Pre-Prohibition Pilsner.
From the Cigar City Brewing website: “This special summer seasonal release is a Pre-Prohibition Pilsner with a modern twist. We improve on the traditional recipe by replacing six-row barley and Cluster hops with premium two-row pilsner malt and imported premium noble hop varietals. This updated version of a classic Pre-Prohibition Pilsner style lager pairs well with with Cuban sandwiches, fresh corn chips with Salsa Fresca, Tostones, Ropa Vieja and of course good company.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a hazy pale yellow with a fluffy white head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Grainy, bready, floral, grassy and citrus hops, scents of honey and slight spice.
Taste: Sweet and grainy malts, grassy and citrus hops and honey.
Overall: Refreshing and crisp, Cigar City Brewing Patio Pils - Pre-Prohibition Pilsner is easy drinking. I enjoyed this 6% ABV offering. Worth a try for fans of the style.
