Traditionally Italian pilsners are European malted lagers that are dry-hopped to infuse floral or spicy notes. This lager was hopped in the kettle with a Slovenian hops, and the grain bill consisted of authentic Italian pilsner malt grown by the Adriatic Sea. It was then dry hopped multiple times throughout fermentation with a new experimental German variety called Relax, which has been used primarily in the tea industry on a small scale. It was chosen for its hop flavor and delicate aromatics, while containing none of the oil that traditionally would cause bitterness when boiled. This imparted beautiful grassy white and green tea notes to the beer that should ring true as hop-driven, yet drink very dry.
