City Beverage, the Official Beer Sponsor of The Less Desirables, presents Burial Beer Company‘s Shadowclock Pilsner, The Less Desirables Beer of the Week.

We’ve had Burial before (Scythe Rye IPA) and we dug it. April is NC Beer Month and throughout April, we’ll be only having NC beers on the show, with one brewer actually coming on the show, April 20. But, today, it’s Burial’s turn. According to the Burial 9f83bca3-df7e-4442-bd5c-4b2a7957bf30website’s description: “Made with German barley and American corn, our own brewer’s prize is then dry-hopped with Saphir and Tettnanger hops. Never filtered, the result is a more robust Bohemian lager with aromas of wildflower, honey and lemon. Keep your palate clean, revel in your beverage.”

I’ve never been a huge Pilsner fan, I’ll be honest. But, I’m always for trying something new and Burial is pretty robust with their brews so, I wanted to give them a try. You would, right? I know you would. So, at 5.5% it’s kind of tame in the ABV game. I’m hoping the flavor busts that out the door.

BeerAdvocate has no rating for it yet (it needs 10, it sits at 6). Untappd has it at 3.71 caps out of 5. Have you had it yet? If so, what did you think? Need another? If so, or even if you haven’t, then you should run to 915 Burke Street and get your sixer. Then tune in to this week’s webisode of The Less Desirables and hear what Caitlin, Bruce, Michael Wells, Jr. and I think of it.

Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
Scorp out!

“Burial, for some, is a necessary step to reach the afterlife. At Burial Beer Co., we see it as a celebration: of life, of the cyclical nature of harvest and of the brewing process. We find glory in the things that once were.” – Burial website
