We’re no strangers to Pilsner beers and have enjoyed quite a few different varieties over the years. Our favorites have come from Victory Brewing, Maine Beer Company, Firestone Walker, and a few other brewers. Troegs Brewing Company, the makers of the beer we’re reviewing today, makes a year round Pilsner called Sunshine Pils that also makes our yummy Pilsner list.
The Troegs Pilsner that we’re reviewing today is called Trail Day and it’s dry hopped. Here’s what Troegs has to say about Trail Day which is available just once a year:
This is the beer you want in hand when your compass lands you at trail’s end. Starting with a backbone of German pilsner malt, this refreshing pils is dry-hopped with mildly citrusy and earthy Saaz hops. As fermentation slows, we reintroduce fresh lager yeast, conditioning the beer and delivering crisp and clean notes of biscuit, dried spice and a hint of citrus. And beneath all that is a foundation of good. When you buy a Trail Day, you’re helping protect the Kittatinny Ridge, a 185-mile Appalachian superhighway that provides clean water, rich forests and safe passage for migratory wildlife.
A beer with a cause! We can definitely respect that, and when it comes from a brewery with a reputation for making excellent beer, we respect it even more. To find out what we thought of this delicious sounding beer with a cause, click the play button on the following video:
