Fullsteam Brewery Paycheck Pilsner

Here is the second beer in the Best of a Mixed Six-Pack. This beer is Fullsteam Brewery Paycheck Pilsner 4.5% ABV. This is a local beer from a local brewery here in Durham North Carolina. Paycheck Pilsner is a post-prohibition pilsner brewed with grains of two-row, riverbend heritage malt and corn; motueka, saphir, and magnum hops are also used. Paycheck Pilsner pours a bright yellow straw color with a three finger bright white fluffy head that dissipates into some frothy lacing within the glass. The aroma is somewhat sweet with a bit of gains and corn. Smells like a pilsner should, but a nice one at that. Taste is quite good with nice crispness of semi-sweet cracker like note that becomes the slightest bit hoppy as it hit the back of the mouth and tongue. But when I say slightest bit hoppy, it barely over nonexistent. The mouth feel is light, crisp, and refreshing. Paycheck Pilsner finishes every so slightly hoppy, just a quick touch of a hop note, (only 35 IBUs) with a nice aftertaste semi-sweet corn taste that become less hoppy and more dry but a nice semi dryness. Nothing that will makes you reach some water. Paycheck Pilsner is easy to drink, too easy, but in a good way. That makes it an A, no flavor stands out of is too weak, just right. This is how an American Pilsner should be, and everyone will like it. Is Fullsteam Brewery Paycheck Pilsner better than Westbrook Brewing Co. White Thai? Well you will have to find out after the conclusion of The Best of the Mixed Six-Pack. So stay tuned right here! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
