DSC_1710

Foothills Brewing (5.3% abv)

Winston-Salem, NC

Aroma: Very well malted, with a dose of noble hops on the nose. Not much alcohol on the nose.

Appearance: Pale golden color, it shows a strong carbonation. The head is a fluffy white, that falls quickly to a ring of bubbles.

Flavor: Bright malty flavor up front with a balancing bite from the hops. This brew has the taste of a traditional pilsner.

Mouthfeel: Clean and refreshing on the tongue, the heavy carbonation washes the tongue, and the hops maintain a balanced brew.

Overall Impression: This is a very good tasting pilsner. It is well balanced and has a nice clean flavor and bright color.
