American Craft is taking the Pilsner back. No longer will Budweiser or Coors’ yellow-tinted bland disasters be the image of this intense refreshment. Brewers are rising up with new hops and a new attitude, and an excellent example of this resurgence is tasted in Barrier Brewing's Skinny Elephant.
Brewed in New York's backyard of Oceanside by one of the state’s hottest up-and-coming brewers, Skinny Elephant brings the kind of rich Lager flavor you’d find only in Europe. But this American twist features even more crisp fruit flavor thanks to Barrier’s inspired use delicately dry hopped Hallertau Blanc, Huell Melon, and Mosaic hops.
No bitterness here -- Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon are purely fruity and aromatic hop varieties that punctuate the Pilsner’s dry drink-a-ton crispness. Together they intertwine with tangerine dreams and cherry visions throughout the aroma. Bring that flaxen-hued brew to your tongue, and your mouth is flooded with lemony pinecones drizzled in light honey and apricots. American-grown Pilsner Malts provide the rustic grain base that delivers a world of citrus bite and finishes clean.
An easy-drinker yet pounding with notes of rich fruit flavor across the tongue, Skinny Elephant is a great vision of the American craft Pilsner. Kick the Macro brews out of your customer's cooler and sneak this in -- watch their face glow over with excitement as he tastes what a true Pilsner is like...amazingly delicious.
