Review: Sookrams Cult Classic Pilsner

Today's review in isolation is Winnipeg's Sookram's Brewing's Cult Classic Pilsner. I'm going to keep this quick and simple.

Brilliant. Balanced. Crisp.
Cult Classic is a pale, golden lager full of crisp hops and bready malts. The zesty spice and floral notes from the hops balance the malt sweetness before this Pilsner's crisp finish. 5.0% ABV

Appearance: Cloudy golden straw body with a light amount of carbonation in the body. The head, as you can tell is pretty darn thick. It took me a few minutes to wait for the head to diminish before I could take a photo - it's very thick, fluffy and a light beige. Once the head diminishes a bit, it leaves behind a good amount of lacing on the side of the glass and has a bit of a crusty appearance on the glass.

Aroma: This is pretty sweet with a lot of a sweet graininess to it, a bit of caramel, a bit of a grassiness and a hint of honey.

Taste: Crisp and sweet Pilsner with a hefty amount of graininess, notes of honey, a mild hop bitterness and a bit of a grassiness. A tad sweeter than most Pilsners I've had lately.

Overall Thoughts: Sweet, foamy and slightly bitter Pilsner, bit stronger than most Pilsners but still crisp and easy to drink.
