A German-style pilsner that gets its name from the Emma Lazarus poem, "The New Colossus," where she describes her personal interpretation of the Statue of Liberty as the "Mother of Exiles." This beer has a spicy, slightly grassy flavor that kicks in mid-palate and continues on to a crisp, bitter finish. Being a lager-style beer, we gave it an extended cold aging period, which adds to its clean drinkability.

ben4321 (4881) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Location: Draft at the Milwaukee Ave Brewpub, 7/16/14

Aroma: The aroma is light and clean, lots of straw, grainy malts, and some mild hops
Appearance: It pours a golden color with a small-to-medium sized white head on it
Flavor: Flavor-wise, it is mostly straw and grainy malts, lightly sweet, with a mild bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly light, with a crisp feel on the tongue, and a fizzy carbonation
Overall Impression: I thought this beer was just okay. There isn’t too much going on here to really love, but it is a solid, drinkable example of the style.

On tap @ Revolution. Golden in color with a white head. Nice orange and pine hop nose. Some floral hops, bread, and toast. A bit of grass, straw, and sweet tarts as well. There’s a nice malt sweetness to the palate, but a pleasant bitterness to balance it out. Tons of orange and floral hops. Good pine, bread, and a bit of grass.

Thanks to Westmeister for giving me a break between big barley wines and stouts today by cracking this beer. Requisite light toasty grain but the presence of the toastiness is a little bigger and more pronounced. Grassy herbal hops. Easy to drink with a little more character than many a pils you will come across.
