Abracadabra! Hocus Pocus! Magic on the Windowsill today!

We’ve had stouts and plenty of pale ales—both the American and Indian varieties—from Tree House Brewing Company on the Windowsill this week, so I figured we’d try something new for this weekend bonus edition of Tree House Week. It’s a Geman pilsner, which is a style that originated in the Bohemian city of Pilsen in the 1840s. Aged in caves before the advent of refrigerators in the early 20th century, the classic style is still found all over the world. Great for a change of pace!

Hold onto your butts, but the Trail Magic wasn’t my favorite brew. I think it’s just because I’m more of a stouts and IPAs kind of fella, though. As far as pilsners go, this was a pretty solid one. Solid malt base with a good balance of hops, and even some spice to counteract that dry finish. Very clean, very crisp. Solid pilsner… if you like that kind of thing.
