COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This pilsner represents a style of Czech and German heritage and is brewed with American Citra aroma hops to give it a new age twist. The Edmund Backhouse Pils is named after the infamous hermit historian living in Peking at the turn of the 20th century. Genius or plagiarist, prophet or pervert, there is nothing boring about Edmund Backhouse’s legacy in the pantheon of Beijing eccentricities. Drink this beer like you have something to hide.

Tap at oedipus. Pours golden. Aroma is hoppy, bit greasy and grassy. Flavor is sweet and bitter, hoppy, some citrus, some grains and slight cardboard. Overall: decent pilsner, bit on the sweeter side, but i like it.

Moravius (1370) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2016
Vom Faß im GLB # 45, Peking. - Goldgelb mit leichtem Grünstich, trüb, kaum Schaum. - In der Nase mild süßlich-keksartiges helles Malz (von Hopfen steht nichts in meinen Notizen). - Antrunk zunächst mild aromatisch grasig-hopfig, dann schwach erdig, etwas leer. Gegen die voll einsetzende helle Malzsüße kann der Hopfen sich nicht behaupten. Gut rezent, für ein Pils etwas voller Körper. Im Abgang reiben sich leichte Honigsüße und krautiger Hopfen aneinander. - Wenig stimmige Hopfenmischung und zu dominierendes Malz - als Pilsener nicht überzeugend.

real dirty bitter aroma. Pale, hazy yellow color. thin white head. Dirty, spicy, musty flavor. A lot of dirt going on here. it’s a dirty pilz.

Keg at Great Leap Taproom, Beijing. Lightly hazy golden.,small head. Grassy nose. Mid dry with medium body and clean, hard mouthfeel. Pleasant flavours from doughy malt and grassy hops.The hard mouthfeel brings out metallic under tones. Quite American, only halfway there.
