Eisenbahn Organic Pilsner – Brazil 4.8%abv

11.2oz light brown bottle. Freshness date stamped on bottle.

It pours a shiny golden yellow with a firm snow-white head on top with lots of sticky and trailing lacing.

It smells mostly of fresh cut dry hay with a nice whiff of sweet malt. A mild lemony citrus aroma comes and goes, forcing me to continue sniffing at the glass.

The malt has a light caramel sweetness and a little nutty taste, which lays a balanced platform for the edgy citrus and mildly metallic hop bite. A taste of sweet limes is noticed in the finish. Mild balancing herbal notes are just the right touch.

This is a world-class Pils. I’ve heard it has entered the US market but have yet to actually see it.
