Pils is one of the styles that suffered the most during the industrialization of the beer market. While the austere beauty was (and still is) the firm favorite of major industrial breweries, the resulting mass of uniformly bland and characterless Pilsners hasn’t done its reputation any good. On the contrary: many beer lovers have saved the classic as a boring, unimaginative brew and turned to something more exciting. That’s a shame, because a handcrafted pilsner made from selected raw materials is a real treat for the palate.
The Binkert brewery from the Franconian town of Breitengüßbach has taken on the neglected style and breathed new life into it with attention to detail, a good portion of hops and a lot of calm. Their contemporary interpretation combines the traditional art of brewing with modern technology and aroma-intensive hop varieties. Diamant, Hersbrucker Spät, Aurum and Opal were used. This brilliant foursome gives the brew a wealth of grassy and citrusy notes that catapult the Pils into the present.
In the glass, this version of the Main Seidlas presents itself in warm gold. A befitting head of foam sits enthroned on the crystal-clear beer and emits a skilful hop flower that is reminiscent of freshly mown summer meadows. The initial taste is the same: grass and herbs meet tangy citrus zest and tart hops on the palate.
