Profile

Thin Man Brewery opened up its doors in 2016, bringing their tasty craft beer to the Western New York community. Thin Man aims to provide the beer lovers of Buffalo, and now abroad, with a diverse slate of beers that cross over current beer trends, cutting edge techniques, and old-world styles - aiming to provide an experience that may be eclectic but is also comprehensive of what craft beer can achieve. The crew at Thin Man currently run tasting rooms in Elmwood and Chandler with extensive taps offering up two dozen different beers (including a few honourable mentions from other local breweries down with the cause). Now their style is making its way up north, but can still be tricky to get your hands on in the west. The Pills Mafia is a German-style Pilsner built using hops from the homeland of the style. Crisp and clean, this is a solid addition to a well-varied category. Serves well at 8°C and can cellar for up to six months.

Look

Pours a pale golden colour with a clear body and light carbonation. A thick, bubbly head rests on the top of the glass.

Smell

The malt is strong and dominates most of what you’ll whiff from this beer, slightly sweet and grainy. But there’s a touch of grassy hops lingering in the background.

Taste

The flavour is Pilsner straight down the middle of the plate. Crisp malt with bread and dough character, combined with hoppy notes that are grassy and a touch of dirt. The sweeter aspect of the malt trends off across the palate and it takes a slightly more bitter, green turn. The flavour is big on the first blush but quickly tapers off to a slightly dry finish with a salty, bitter taste lingering behind.

Pairing

Any pub food will go well with this lager, so dig into nachos, a juicy burger, or the ultimate beef-dip.
