A Switchback is a path to the summit for the determined and adventurous. It takes a little longer and more work to get there but is always worth it. This light-bodied beer with slight bitterness is for those who appreciate the journey as much as the destination.
Switchback pours with a brilliant golden hue and dense white foam. Aromatics are of fresh-cut hay with slight floral notes and the unmistakable graininess that is the hallmark of a traditional German-style pilsner. The mouth feel is light-bodied with a subtle hint of citrus and the pleasant tanginess of Hallertau hops. Finishes clean and refreshing. Recipe by our resident Dane, Dan Unkerskov.
