When in Michigan for Thanksgiving, we are going to get into another beer from Short’s Brew Company. The beer is called Pontius Road Pilsner. If you read my earlier blog on their India Pale Ale, you know the short history on this young brewery from Michigan. If you have not, please read the first part of that beer post. Let us get into the beer.
The beer is a clear straw to bright yellow color with a constant bubbles. It has a ton of carbonation with a big white head on the beer. There is no smell to the beer. The taste is a sweet carbonation with a nice hoppy to it. There is a little bitter aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Quality lies just off the beaten path.
Here is a description from their website (www.shortsbrewing.com):
Pontius Road Pilsner
A true American style Pilsner where the malted barley, when blended with flaked maize (corn), produce a deliciously distinct flavor. It is light in body and color, with a surprisingly full flavor that gives way to crisp refreshment. Handfuls of hops provide pleasant aromatics and a wonderful dry finish.

Ending, I love craft pilsner but this one was a little different then the rest. It reminds me of a fresher version of Stella. I am not saying that this beer is a bad beer but it is not my style in the pilsner. This beer is well made and designed to the classic style. I did enjoy it but it is not one of my favorite beer from this brewery. I can see people who will enjoy this beer. It has a nice balance and easy to drink this beer. I recommend people trying this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
