Beer God’s Notes
I’m not sure if you’ve gathered that I’m a bit of a hophead by now. But if you haven’t, that is definitely the case. I try to review beers so that every kind of person will enjoy reading them and can understand what they are walking into, but in the case of a few styles — this is a lot harder for me. Pilsner is one of these styles. I keep coming back to them because they are a brewmasters best friend, and I’ve heard that they aren’t the easiest to make either.
So, when I saw the front of these two cans I was already intrigued. Dry Hopped Pilsner and Wickedly Dry Hopped Imperial Pilsner. I was hoping that the hops would take center stage and they did.
Both of these beers were delicious and drank way too easily. I finished Fresh Cut before I realized it, I had half of the Super Fresh down. I normally sip and enjoy my beers trying to figure out what flavors are in play and what I should write. These were mostly gone before I had that chance.
So, what you can get out of this is — if you are a pilsner fan and don’t like a lot of hops, you probably won’t like this. But if you are more of a hophead and enjoy hop-forward styles. Fresh Cut and Super Fresh should be quickly added to your list.
Fresh Cut is a dry-hopped pilsner. Chinook, Citra and Centennial hops provide aromas of citrus, grass and spice. Though the front palate is loud with IPA qualities, the finish is distinctly pilsner- crisp, dry and extremely refreshing. Enjoy!
SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRINGS: Fish Sandwiches, Lobsters, and meals eaten on rustic outdoors single-origin hand-hewn Amish furniture
This is Fresh Cut’s assertive big brother. A wicked dry-hopped pilsner. Dripping with juicy, citrus hop character, this beer is a blast of deliciousness. We hope you enjoy.
SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRINGS: Lime & Cilantro, a variety of chilies, Thai & Vietnamese dishes, jerk and Cajun spices.
first thing I thought when I got these two ready for this pic was “he ain’t heavy, he’s my brother”. Now I can’t think of anything else. But I’m having Fresh Cut and Super Fresh tonight.
