Smuttynose Vunderbar Pilsner. Awesome in so many ways. (Are you seeing this picture?) Vunderbar was/is part of Smuttynose’s Short Batch Series, released only on draft (previously.)
Vunderbar Pils marks a departure from the last few short batches we have brewed. It’s not high in alcohol. It doesn’t use any kind of wild yeast, nor is it barrel-aged. It’s a beer in the classic, if not archetypal, sense of the word. Best of all, it’s blindingly delicious and drinkable. The low bitterness and moderate body make the beer conducive to some serious elbow bending; we went through five gallons here in less than twenty-four hours.
Hops: Saaz, dryhopping at ½ pound per barrel.
Malts: Weyermann Pilsner, Weyermann Acidulated
Availability: 12oz bottles, Draft
5.11% ABV, 15 IBU
Note: The above information about Smutty’s pils is correct assuming they haven’t adjusted the recipe since it’s inception on draft in 2010.
