Ykpaiha Pilsner is crisp and dry, a hint of herbal and leaves a snap of satisfying hop bite to the very last sip. The mouthfeel is light but has an almost creamy carbonation and pleasing bitter finish. If you like the Inhaled Affirmative from Big Spruce, you need to try this one!
An ode to the Ukrainian Pilsner — brewed with family-farm grown Zlato Polissya hops from Galchin, Zhytomyr in Ukraine. This hop is similar to Czech Saaz, and German Tettnanger, and is makes beers that have very soft and fresh aromas, common used in traditional beer. With notes of sweet herbals and fruits.
