This beer may have a cheeky name, but donít be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beerís smooth character.

This brew is not very Euro anything, at least not in the sense of being a German or Czech pils. It has a very grainy, malty nose without much hop balance.Light yellow with good carbonation. Tastes like helles more than pils. Light body, easy to take down. Expectation not quite met.

Itís not often that craft breweries deliberately brew "fizzy yellow beers." If they brew a lager, they tend to be a lot more distinct than a macro beer of the style, but thatís not entirely true of Southern Tier Eurotrash Pilz. As far as I can tell the beer is named to lead the drinker to think itís in the style of a Heineken or Carlsberg. But the beer critic in me thinks theyíre going for a more traditional Czech or German pilsner or Dortmunder of some type. What it is, thereís nothing particularly unique or interesting about this brew. Itís about as generic as they come for a lager, just without the adjuncts. Clean, crisp and refreshing but way too mild for its own good.

I poured a 12oz bottle into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: Crystal-clear appearance with a gold hue; massive carbonation visible. Forms a small, bright white, soapy head which retains and laces surprisingly well.

Smell: Standard lager aroma only a little sweeter and no obvious presence of adjuncts.

Taste: If youíve ever drank a macro lager you have a good idea of how Southern Tier Eurotrash Pilz tastes (for the most part). The difference being thereís no flavors of canned corn water or cardboard. There is a light sweetness across the palate, though, almost like that in those beers that use rice (although I doubt this is brewed with any adjuncts). Right on the finish thereís an interesting flavor of nuttiness - not the taste you would expect from a beer of this style. Itís nothing bad at all, but it doesnít really add much to the brew. The palate is more defined by its clean mildness than any distinct flavors. Those looking to pick out malts and hops may be disappointed. Iím not really sure what purpose this beer serves since itís made by one of the best craft breweries around and tastes like something so un-craft-like. Who is the target audience for this brew?

Drinkability: What this beer lacks in taste it makes up for in drinkability. With a light body and crisp, clean palate, Southern Tier Eurotrash Pilz is a ridiculously easy beer to suck down. Itís refreshing throughout the entire drinking experience and leaves virtually no aftertaste. It weighs in at 5.2% ABV, but that actually seems a little high considering how light the body is. Iím sure the average drinker would have no problem throwing back a few bottles at time, especially in warmer weather.

Clear gold appearance with a small white head and light lacing. Mild vegetal aroma offset by a bit of straw. Grainy, sweet malt flavor, moderately hopped, with a bready textured aftertaste. Light bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with an average length finish.

Simply put, this is a crisp, clean, golden and refreshing Pilsner that is exceptionally enjoyable to drink.
