COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Nice pils. Catty type hops, refreshing and a nice break between the big beers had during the tasting today. Just a good refreshing pils, with medium malt compoenent and mild bitter

Average slightly sticky pils with a nice bit of noble hop background. The sweetness is a bit high for my liking but overall still enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Bottle: Clear yellow and gold pour, nice filtered look. Wispy bone white head fades to a collar quick. Aroma is fairly light and subdued, not much aside from some clean, fresh barley and grains with a hint of lager yeast. Taste is some sweet pilsner malt, faint graininess and a touch of blanketed, musky hops, likely of the Noble variety. Good, fresh, dry, bready yeast with an onsetting bitterness that fades into the finish nicely. Dry, clean, thin bodied with crispy, biting carbonation. Nice, easy drinking, fresh pilsner. Wish the nose was a little more lively but it’s a good take on the style.

Mild fruit aroma, with a touch of hops. The beer pours a clear light amber with a full white head. Slightly sweet taste, with a nice spicy hop finish. Very light mouthfeel, and not much of a finish. This is a decent introduction to the Pilsener style.

From Genes. A very good American version of a euro pilsner. Hits all the characteristics including that mineral slightly sulphur-y aroma/flavor. They resisted the urge to over hop but still had a nice floral and herbal hop bite Serving: bottle ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
