A pilsner style beer specially brewed for those who seek a refreshing drink to share with friends at meals and conversation and, like our Heinzelmšnnchen friends, at times of celebration. A nicely balanced ale with a malty note that complements pasta and pizza.

Draught at the brewery. Well, this is a fairly straightfoward pilsner. This really comes across as a light European thirst-quenching lager, hard to imagine this being an ale. Itís got some corn and mild hops in the aroma with a malt foundation of caramel. The sweetness over the palate is appealing enough and a bit of hop presence make this semi-interesting. Itís just too light to really excite me.

Tap. Strong malt and hops aroma. Slightly cloudy golden yellow color with large head - a beautiful beer. Light sour lemon and mild malt flavor with a moderate hops finish. A great summer beer.

Sample, on tap at the brewery. A clean drinking brew. Effervescent and mellow yellow. Nicely hopped, with a nutty component. Sturdy body, maybe even a bit pithy -- slightly more than medium bodied. Dryish, crackery malts, no vegetable components. Talked with Dieter, the brewer, for a good while and tried to pin him down a little bit on the style - Kolsch? Nope. Heís quite emphatic that itís "Pilsener Ale". If itís a good enough "category" for Deschutes Twighlight, then I guess itíll fly for Herr Heinzelmannchen.
