Evil Twin Low Life

Evil Twin Brewing has its origins in Denmark, but its beers are actually brewed at ten different breweries around the world. It is imported by Twelve Percent Imports. This pilsner is 5.5% ABV and was brewed at Westbrook Brewing Company in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. 

The beer pours a very orange and amber tinted deep and dark golden. There is a tall head of thick foam, white to just off-white in color. The aroma is grassy, floral, grain and fruit, with a tangy bread dough quality. The taste follows the aromas, lots of grass and bread dough with a quite bitter finish. It is both well carbonated and full, yet flat and watery in the mouth at the same time. I am not sure how it is possible to do that, but they do.

According to the bottle: "we threw in a young, unacknowledged hoppy pilsner, gave it a limp, wrinkly flavor and finished it off with an insulting high price that will give you a foul feeling in your mouth. That's why we name Evil Twin Brewing's Low Life the Golddigger of Beers." There is certainly some hyperbole there, the beer is more good than bad.
