I grabbed this one on impulse last time I went shopping for beverages.  It wasn’t particularly showy or eye grabbing, it just had the distinction of being one of the few offerings in the local arrivals section that wasn’t an IPA.

Beer Name: Von Lume

Brewery: Mystic Brewery (Chelsea, MA)

Style: Pilsner

ABV: 4.70%

Description: I actually had a harder than expected time tracking down information on this one.  All I can tell you is that this was a can conditioned pilsner.

Appearance: Golden yellow body accentuated by copper highlights and a foamy white head.

Smell: Crisp malt and citrus rind.

Taste: Light notes of pale, crackery malts fortified with moderate grainy taste.  Also picked on hints of lemon and pepper throughout and a mild grassy hop presence on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and moderately carbonated.

Hype: None that I am aware of.  I couldn’t even dig up basic background information on this one, let alone any buzz.

Overall: I wasn’t a huge fan of this as the flavor profile just wasn’t quite my thing.  I grabbed this feeling somewhat invincible after having some really great pilsners lately, so I suppose every streak has to end eventually.
