Description 

Clawhammer is a classic German-style Pilsner brewed with an American point of view. Dry, crisp, and refreshing. This beer is as delicious as it is simple. We used newer age German hops to add that slight bit of bitterness that is common for the style.

Clawhammer Pilsner by Door County Brewing Co. is a light and easy-drinking beer that was judged as a German Pilsner (BJCP Cat 5D). This beer was golden, and clear with a white head and fine bubbles that were long-lasting. It had a light grainy, sweet, crackery aroma with low DMS and a soft spicy, floral hop note. A crisp, clean, refreshing aroma that made me want to dive in for a sip. The flavor was clean, grainy and crackery and had a floral, citrus hop flavor and lingering hop bitterness that dominated the beer and left a dry finish. Medium-light body and high carbonation gave this beer a refreshing quality. A great summer beer to enjoy while mowing the lawn, grilling, boating or just relaxing.
