Beer Vibe Drinks Local

Continuing with our drink local series, we are tasting things
that are pushing the limits in the world of craft beer.
Concrete Beach has made a Miami-Style Pilsner. Being born in Miami, one could say Miami is a patchwork of diversity with many different styles. So as we taste we will see what that’s all about.

Concrete Beach Brewery – Stiltsville, Miami Style Pilsner

5.2% ABV, 25 IBU

These are our thoughts.

The Pour: Light Fizzy Foam.

Ms. Hopologist: “Minimal head, minimal residue.”

Mr. De La Beer: “Nice suds, small to medium froth.”

Ms. Hopologist: “Golden, Las Vegas gold.”

Once Upon a German: “Super blond.”

Mr. De La Beer: “Light golden color.”

Score: 3.5/5


The Smell: Light Notes.

Ms. Hopologist: “Yeasty, malty.”

Once Upon a German: “Very light malt, light yeast, lightly hopped.”

Mr. De La Beer: “Tangy, slightly musky.”

Score: 3.5/5


The Flavor: Something Miami Style.

Ms. Hopologist: “Musky, fruity, not much yeast or malt flavor, very, very mild.”

Once Upon a German: “Not what I expected, slightly malty, musty taste ending with mild hops.”

Mr. De La Beer: “Slightly hoppy pilsner, mild flavors, balanced hops.”

Score: 3/5


The Mouthfeel: Like Miami Beach.

Ms. Hopologist: “Light body.”

Once Upon a German: “Watery, not exactly refreshing on a hot Miami day at the beach, bitter remains for a little while which redeems it.”

Score: 2.5/5


Total Score: 3.2/5

Ending Comments

Something Miami style needs diversity and flavor. This Pilsner will certainly satisfy most palettes. Would go great with Arros con Frijoles. We look forward to trying Concrete Beach Brewery’s other offerings.
