Full Pint Rumpelpilsen
Full Pint Rumpelpilsen from Brass Rail in Campbelltown as part of a mixed six-pack. The beer pours a pale yellow color with a frothy off-white colored head that leaves bits of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of lemon, grass, caramel, toffee, and butterscotch. The taste is slightly bitey with pepper and grassy hops right up front with a hint of carbonation. Caramel, toffee, and butterscotch come out in the finish to sweeten up the beer. The alcohol content is 5.2% ABV. This was a rather solid, and slightly bitter, pilsner that I fully enjoyed. The grassy and peppery hops really made the beer, dominating the slightly sweet base.
