Great Dane Verrückte Stadt German Pils
Got a 64 ounce branded growler of this not 24 hours old as a gift.
Pours into my stange with a nice fluffy white three finger head. It sticks around for awhile before leaving some very nice lacing behind. This beer is pale pale gold, and very clear and bright. This is perhaps the clearest most filtered looking beer I’ve ever seen. It looks like a stalwart German pilsener.
The scent is very grassy and floral, more american pilsener style. There is also some malt.
Taste is very American styled pilsener. It is bursting with malt sour lemon fruitiness and some grassy spice. Like most American pilseners it is totally unrefined in taste compared to its European counterparts with some diacetyl. This one is very light on taste, would make a good summertime quencher as it goes down extremely easy though its not that much of a pleasure to down.
The mouthfeel is smooth, with some wateriness and a nice balance of carbonation.
Overall its a malt bomb of a pils with that typical American, go-over-the-recipe-once-then-brew-it scheme.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the Great Dane, Madison. Poured clear, bright light golden with a splotchy cap of white head. Nose was of sweet fruits and corn, with some wet hay and more veggies... blech. Sweet pils malts and sour banana at the flavor core.. alcohol should not have been present at the back end of this lighter brew. Highly-carbonated with sharp alcohol notes and ugly veggies. I hope this was just a bad batch.
