Penelope Pils

 Humble Sea Brewing (Santa Cruz, CA)

"A decocted, naturally carbonated, step mashed German pilsner with Noble Hops. Named after our head-brewer’s first daughter, Penelope is our interpretation of a perfect German pilsner.
Decoction mashes introduce a more rich, layered malt presence we’ve only tasted from centuries-old German lager recipes.
Being able to do decoction mashes on our brewhouse is a huge step in our never-ending journey of perfecting our lagers."

Nice. A little more bitter than most pilsners I've had, but I like it. Easy drinking.

ABV 5.1%
Hops: Perle, Hallertauer Mittelfruh
