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)

Style: Pilsner

ABV: 4.8%

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.
