In this blog, we are going to get into the last beer from Frankenmuth Brewery Sampler Pack. The beer that will be featured is called Frankenmuth Brewery German Style Pilsener Lager. You read my earlier on Frankenmuth Brewery Blonde then you are pretty up to speed on this great brewery. Let us get into one of Michigan’s Oldest Brewery beer called Frankenmuth Brewery Pilsener.
This beer in the glass has a clear and bright yellow tone with to head. It has a sweet and slight candy corn smell to it. As far as the taste of this pilsner, it is clean crisp with a sweet dry carbonation going on in it. Frankenmuth Pilsner is very drinkable and sessional beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle and their website (www.frankenmuthbrewery.com):
A time-honored German style pilsener, this definitive golden lager is made following the traditional German purity law: using only malted barley, water, German hops and German lager yeast. A great beer with a floral aroma, a hint of spices & a dry finish.
ABV 5.25% IBU 26 Pairs well with lighter foods: chicken, salads, salmon & bratwurst

In the end, this beer style is not one of favorite out there, however, trying beer styles I have not like in the past to write these blogs. I have found a new aspect towards some of these beer styles. Just what I said in my Redhook Longhammer IPA, if I did not try other beers I would not have found beer styles that I love to death. It goes with this beer from Frankenmuth Brewery and the beer is Pilsner Lager. I really enjoyed this beer and has turn me on to check out other Pilsners at least craft beer world wise. It is not to light but not too heavy while drinking it. It is an awesome beer to drink in very hot weather to the nice cold winter. This beer fits into the classic pilsner beer style for its drinkable. Being a German base American Craft Brewery, they did an awesome job on this classic beer style. I would say they did a better job with it then the German Breweries that have been brewing this style for hundreds of years. I might get some hate mail but I am fine with that. I am just an idiot with many thoughts on everything in the world. This is my idea and you can agree or disagree with it. To finish this blog up, I really highly recommend trying this beer at least once in your lifetime. I love this beer and this brewery and I wish I could get in Chicagoland. I just want to say thank you to my parents for bring out these beers when they were here visiting me. I will be stocking up when I go back to Michigan. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
