Widowlager Review

A really good Football Sunday pilsner. Light, crisp, easy drinking, and enjoyable.

Widowmaker always seems to show up, no matter what beer style they brew. This includes the Blue Comet, Martin & Lewis, and Triple Ecstasy. A four pack of 16oz cans should get you through the 1pm NFL games. They might even get you on to the 4pm'ers as well.

This pilsner reminds us a lot of Night Shift's Nite Lite and Woodstock's Lost River Light. Pours a dull, mostly translucent gold. The aftertaste can only be described as cheery.

The beer can artwork is an homage to the Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man.

A little bit hoppy, a little bit fruity, an all around good traditional German-style pilsner.
