Throwback Thursday: Luther Reformations Bier Pilsner


Germany is probably one of the great countries for good beer, and could possibly be the oldest too. Germans are the originators of some beers styles, so it is good to go back and try some of these original German styles.  One style that has origins not in German but in the town of Pilsen Czech Republic where the style is named after, but then came to Germany where it grew in popularity and the Germans crafted and brewed their own versions of Pilsner. Now we have Czech and German Pilsner. Most American Pilsners are decedents of the German Pilsner. For my birthday I received a rather interesting pint of German Pilsner, Luther Reformations Bier, 4.9% ABV, brewed by Neunspringe Worbis in Wobis Germany. Reformations Bier pours a bright golden color with a two-finger bright thick white head the slowly fades into bright thick whiffs of nice lacing. I found a great amount of light coming through the glass and a big heard of carbonation bubbles. The aroma has a nice light cracker and big buttery biscuit scent about it, and you can feel a light bubble on your nose. Reformations have a nice crisp buttery taste upfront followed by a slight biscuit and faint cracker. But as this beer warms a bit of a spice note comes through. It is sort of a spicy character like an herb. But the entire bottle is in German so I don’t know what it is. I am guessing it. The spicy herd is less present at cooler temperatures but still slightly there. The mouthfeel is light to medium and has a nice crisp but lightly spiced finish, with a nice aftertaste if spiced herbs and a faint buttery biscuit note. I liked Luther Reformations Bier and would recommend this to anyone, and if and when you find it please let me know where. I’d say Luther Reformations Bier Pilsner is a B+. The spiced herbs really add an interesting touch to a German Pilsner and make for a good Pilsner. So go out and try Luther Reformations Bier Pilsner and see what you think. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
