what: Dogfish Head’s Piercing Pils
ABV: 6 percent
cost: about $8 for a 4-pack
where: major retailers
Dogfish is one of the most innovative and fearless craft brewers, brewing without rules or limitations on the ingredients it uses in its search for new and interesting flavors. Piercing Pils is a result of these experiments. This intriguing new seasonal, which recently arrived in Columbia, is based on the classic Czech pilsner, the original pilsner style. The style’s signature is the unmistakable spiciness of the Saaz hop with firm but pleasant bitterness that is tempered by a bit more malt character than the familiar German pils style. To brew Piercing Pils, Dogfish added pear juice and a pear tea to the typical Czech-pils recipe. The pear flavor is unmistakable and harmonizes surprisingly well with the malt and Saaz hop character of this lager beer. In addition to flavor, there is an extra layer of sweetness that balances the fine hop bitterness. This is an excellent beer. Cheers! — Gerald Jowers
