I picked this Billows Dry-Hopped Kolsch-Style Ale, 4.9% ABV from my local pasta shop, Pasta and Provisions. This beer is from Asheville, North Carolina. This beeris brewed by Burial Beer. This Kolsch is dry-hopped with Mandarina, Bavaria, and Centennial hops. It is also fermented, with Kolsch yeast. This beer pours a vibrant yellow with a three finger fluffy bight white head. The head fades slowly into decent lacy curtains. The aroma is hoppy, a little lemony, clean but dry. The taste is also hoppy with a lemon and a dry little chalkiness. This Kolsch is smooth, clean, and refreshing as well. The mouthfeel is light. This one doesn’t sit heavy on you. The aftertaste is slightly dry with a bit go hoppy notes. Then comes an aftertaste of hops and a light lemon dry flavor. This dry hopped Kolsch really surprised me with how good it is. It has superb flavors that meld together, making for a delicious beer. I give this an A+. It is fabulous, and I really recommend this beer. Please be kind, stay safe, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
This double dry-hopped Italian style Pilsner, Enzo Gorlami, 5.5% ABV from Triple C Brewing Company, is made locally in Charlotte. This pilsner pours a gold color with a big two-finger white head that slowly fades. The aroma is crisp, lightly bitter, and citrusy. The flavor is crisp tasting with a bitter lemon and grapefruit flavor. The mouthfeel is light. Then this pilsner finishes with a light bitter note and a bit of a dry crips flavor. The aftertaste is okay. There is a bitter fruit there with a bread note. Well, this was starting off to be a bad-tasting beer until I looked up, that is double dry-hopped, then the off-flavor made sense. But I still don’t think this is a great pilsner. I give Enzo Gorlami a D+. I don’t care so much for a bitter/hoppy pilsner, but save that hoppy flavor for a lager. I don’t recommend this pilsner. It starts smooth and crisp, then it just goes bitter without warning, then finishes crisp with light bitter notes. The flavors don’t go well. It’s s like a different beer in the middle. Please be kind, stay safe, and always remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!

Ritual Anonymity Pilsner, 5.2% ABV, is from Burial Beer in Asheville, North Carolina. Ritual Anonymity made with Epiphany Craft Malt, barley, and oats. Double-dry hopped with Galaxy and Kohatu hops. Burial Beer said that this Pilsner is hoppy. Ritual Anonymity pours a light yellow with a bright white three finger head. It gives off hoppy lemon notes with a bit of a grassy note. It smells like a pale ale is mating with a pilsner. The flavor is similar to the way it smells of a nice hoppy lemon grassy flavor with a touch of faint sweetness that you might find in a traditional pilsner beer, a nice hoppy flavor. Ritual Anonymity has a light mouthfeel. It comes to a pilsner sweet and hoppy finish with a light hop pilsner aftertaste with a very faint lemon note.

Burial Beer Co. Distributed Denial of Service, 5% ABV is a dry-hopped Kellerpils or a dry-hopped unfiltered Pilsner that I purchased from Pop the Top. Distributed Denial of Service pours a slightly hazed yellow with a fluffy two finger steady white head with aromas of hoppy breaded pilsner malt that has a little dry note to it with some slight crisp notes. The flavor is more on the hoppy side that does follow the nose with a nice bitter note of slightly breaded pilsner malt with a hoppy noted on the back that has light dryness to it with a crisp nature that comes to a slightly hoppy dry finish and a nice semi-hoppy aftertaste that is somehow refreshing with a medium mouthfeel. Burial Beer Co. Distributed Denial of Service is quite a take on a Pilsner beer and that good getting a B+ from me. I found this beer to slowly become too much for you tastebuds after about a four-pack but you would enjoy each of the four Burial Beer Co. Distributed Denial of Service which you should definitely try! Please stay safe at home and please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
