Heist Brewery Druid Pils South

Druid Pils South is German-style Pilsner and the younger brother of Druid Pils, both by Heist Brewery here in Charlotte, North Carolina. This beer comes in at 4.5% ABV. This beer pours a typical yellow pilsner color with a thin one-finger fizzy white head. The aroma is semi-sweet and crisp. There is not much going on with the beer aroma. The taste is semi-sweet, crisp, and light white bread notes, thin and light. I did get a slight off-flavor of hoppy peppery notes that wasn’t so great. The mouthfeel is thin. There is not much there. Then comes a bitter finish. But it is a mild bitterness. The aftertaste is much but a crisp bitter cracker. This beer was not so great. I’d say that Druid Pils South a D+. Halfway through this beer, I might have given it a C-, but it got slightly worse through the second half. I don’t recommend you drink this. One off-putting flavor can take a beer down and make it less enjoyable. This beer is an example of that. Please be kind, stay safe, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
