Episode #118 – Carolina Brewery – Super Saaz Imperial Pilsner

Today we are reviewing the Super Saaz Imperial Pilsner out of the Carolina Brewery of Chapel Hill and Pittsboro. Carolina Brewery is a locally owned brewery and restaurant that has earned a great reputation for its handcrafted beers. Super Saaz, a “deep golden hued Imperial Pilsner is packed full of Saaz hops and the finest German malts.” We are promised that a small glass of this beer won’t be enough, so we are encouraged to ask our server to “Super Saaz” it! Saaz has a very distinctive flavor with an aroma that is very mild, earthy, herbal and spicy. Let’s see how this saaz pilsner suits us!
