The Taste of Necessary Evil

Necessary Evil is a German-style pilsner beer with a nice crisp, cracker, or grassy malt flavor. Zesty and spicy hops…light lemony finish that’s nice. Light bodied but definitely crisp and a good hop bite. Medium-high carbonation and mid-length finish.  The mouthfeel of this pilsner is a little thin.

Brewers Description

Our version of a Pilsner is dry, crisp, and has maybe a hint of hop character. The floral aspects of the hops, not the bitter, so please make sure that H word is never mentioned to your light beer friends. Actually, let’s just call it floral characteristics. If you get real nerdy during your tastings, you will also pick up on herbal qualities. Like all Pilsners, ours is light in body and color.”

The Brewery

Manhattan Project Beer Company is a unique craft beer brewery located in Dallas Texas.  They have been producing beer since 2016.  They moved to their current location in December of 2019 and open the public to visit is January of 2020.

Opinion 

Necessary Evil is a good pilsner.  It has all of the malt flavors you expect from this style of beer. I would pair this with a hot day in the pool, tailgating, sandwiches, and tacos.  I will be adding Necessary Evil to my beer fridge for all of my get-togethers.
