Mammoth Brewing 'Golden Trout' Pilsner

Mammoth Brewing 'Golden Trout' Pilsner. 5.5% abv. 30 IBU. Pale golden color. Thin white bubbly head. Low retention. Almost no lace. Earthy aromas of grain and floral hops. Veggie-grassy tastes of cooked corn and peas with some floral hops in back. Thin-medium body. Mouthfeel is thin with warm bubbly carb. Aftertaste includes butter, grass, faint citrus.

This brew is a poor example of a pilsner.  I've had good beers from Mammoth before, so I'm willing to consider that this is a fluke, that something went slightly south during bottling. Still, I won't be trying this again anytime soon.

Note: This beer is not to be confused with 'Golden Trout' Ale from Sequoia Brewing.

From the brewery:

"Crisp and refreshing as a high Sierra stream, Golden Trout Pilsner combines a light malty body with a floral hop finish. Pilsner malt, Vienna malt, and Sterling hops make this a beer of exceptional flavor. Named after the state fish of California Golden Trout Pilsner is a regular companion to many a fishing tale."
