Who You Callin' Wussie

Stone's Arrogant Brewing canned a pilsner called Who You Callin' Wussie? OMG no way! And a pounder can too, duh, what should I have expected? There is a giant gargoyle on the can but the story is MIA, until you visit the A+++ website description from Stone's Marketing Department! 5.8% alcohol. "Drink Fresh, Numbskull!" Canned 06/27/16. I drank it 20 days later.
It's Time a Pilsner Got Arrogant 
For far too long the tyrannical industrialized beer overlords have disgraced and cheapened the noble heritage of the pilsner with their relentless multi-generational downward drive to commercialized homogenization. Over decades, this once vaulted style has been slowly and methodically gutted, bringing forth a soulless and anemic result, all the while spending billions in advertising to convince the unwitting public that their fizzy yellow end result was beer. Well, I will not have it. We are striking back for true craft by stealing the pilsner back from their evil clutches, and restoring it to its almighty glory. They do it cheaply. We do it right. Choose vapidity, or choose righteousness...but whatever you do, choose wisely.
Grainy, lemony aroma with flowers and light apple peeking through. Not so arrogant yet. Sharp, lemony flavors to start. Grainy, grassy, hoppy, prickly on the palate. There is a nice sweet fruity apple backdrop as well. Fresh and crisp and totally refreshing. Definitely an amped up pilsner. Next time I'll buy the full box! Pretty arrogant for a pils; check it out!
