Breckenridge Small Batch Regal Pilsner
While in Denver for Great American Beer Fest, I stopped into the Breckenridge Ballpark Pub for lunch and a few brews. Having had a such positive impression from the Small Batch 471 IPA, I jumped at the chance to try another Small Batch offering, the Regal Pilsner. The beer pours a golden color with a foamy white head. The aroma is crisp and fresh with a good hop offering, more so than a typical pilsner. The taste is smooth and crisp with a good malty backbone and a sour hop bite. The finish is lemony and pine hops, with a dry and bitter after taste. The alcohol content is 7.0% ABV. The Regal Pilsner provided a very good experience and was extremely enjoyable with a surprising hop transition.
