COOP ALE WORKS Saturday Siren Dry-Hopped Pils

I was a little surprised to see COOP trying out a pilsner, I believe this is their first wide lager? Usually I don’t get too excited about a pilsner, but a dry-hopped pilsner is another matter altogether. Let’s see what COOP can do with these Idaho 7 and Comet hops.

Company: COOP Ale Works

Location: Brewed In Oklahoma City, OK

ABV: 5.4%

IBUs: 47

Style/Description: Pilsner

Price: $9.99 per six pack

Appearance: Lightly cloudy straw-colored pour, with a robust white head and persistent lace.

Nose: Sweet bready aroma, with some spicy, lightly fruity notes. Hard to place, strawberry maybe?

Taste: Crisp and light, with just a hint of pilsner skunk. Plenty of interesting hop flavors from the dry hop additions make this seem a lot more like a pale ale than a pilsner. Mild piney resins, some sweet grass and hay tones. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel, medium carb, very drinkable.

Finish: Nice crisp finish, clean, with just a bit of the hops remaining.

Overall: Not a bad beer at all, plenty of flavor from the Idaho 7 and Comet dry hopping. Just a bit of skunk keeps it interesting, and this is a good choice for your upcoming July 4th barbeque.

Rating: 3.5/5
