After fully recovering from the lingering effects of my illness a couple of weeks, it was time go forth and try out some new beer again. I took advantage of a particularly nice day last weekend to swing by my local brewery and grab some provisions. This one also comes with a nice little story; it is inspired by the neighborhood the brewery is a part of and $1 of every sale goes to the restoration of a nearby WWI monument.
Beer Name: Edgeworth
Brewery: Idle Hands Craft Ales (Malden, MA)
Description: The release notes call it an easy drinking American hoppy pilsner made with 100% American hops and malts that give it a floral aroma and notes of cracker malts and citrus peel.
Appearance: Perfectly see-through pale straw body with a lively white foam head.
Smell: Light cracker malts with a slightly lemony, floral backing.
Taste: Clean and crisp with crackery light malts backed up by a citrus/grapefruit sweetness. Slightly grainy finish with subdued lemon and floral notes on the very end.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied and somewhat less than moderately carbonated.
Hype: The brewery had some social media buzz around this, but pilsners typically aren’t really where the hype goes these days.
Overall: Light and easy drinking with a nice blend flavor, this was an excellent brew for me to get back in the game with. I was happy to hear that they plan on canning on this in the future as I would love to have some of these to sit outside with on a warm summer day.
