Sacopee Pils

I figured I'd start this post out with maybe some interesting facts about the Sacopee Valley in New Hampshire. Apparently, there's not a whole heck of a lot going on there historically or otherwise because my searches came up with nothing much of any sort of interest. All I came up with was a Facebook page called Sacopee Valley  Memes. And this seems to be run by a bunch of teenie-boppers. There was, however, something of beer interest on their page. Sort of.

Uhm  . . . okaaaay.

Sacopee Pils (5.0%) brewed by Prodigal Brewery at Misty Mountain Farm.

It pours a cleaner golden yellow with a typical pilsner big floofy head that threatens to, if not succeeds in, over spilling.

The aroma is gently malty with a pleasant undertone of citrus and earthy hops.

The taste is crisp with a solid malt backbone. There are hints of citrus and yeast. It has a nice balance of flavors with only a mild taste of bitterness. The finish is clean and dry.

The mouth feel is light and effervescent.

Sacopee Pils is a good example of a classic pilsner. Refreshing, delicious, and easy drinking.

Overall: very good.
