Blackberry Farm TN Times Pilsner

I'm not a massive fan of most pilsners, but that doesn't mean there aren't good ones out there.  Why not look for one of these at home here in Nashville? Why not try to get one from the same people who gave me Screaming Cock? No, that wasn't the best beer from the area, but I like people who really try.

Gold with a slight haze, this beer has a nice white, fluffy head that leaves a patchy cap floating on top of the beer. The foam sticks to the sides well enough, and I anticipate lacing. The aroma is solid bread with a spritz of lemon on top that gies the beer life.

First sip is a bit acidic due to the lemons, but the bread is joined by a gentle grass to offset the acid of the lemons. Honey adds a bit of sweetness to the drink, and the sip is enjoyable, but forgettable.

Tip-in is honey sweet with the biscuit backing it up nicely. The carbonation is just there enough to let you know it isn't flat. The middle is where that acidic note takes hold, but the lemons and grass are still there, trying to get past it; they are mostly failing. The finish is a bit of bitterness added to the mix, but the acid never really goes away.

Bottom Line: The beer is probably too ambitious for its own good.

1.5/5
