COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gringolandia is an affectionate term used by many Latinos to refer to the United States. We’re using the term to paint a picture of our collective 5 Rabbit experience as a Latin-based company in the exciting melting pot that is 21st century Chicagoland, and to brew beers that reflect that experience. It’s our tribute to the American craft beer movement.

After staking out our Latin credentials with several exciting, ingredient-based beers in the “5″ series, we felt it was time to expand our range. These beers are our own interpretations of some popular craft beer styles, changed up a little to make them our own distinct beers different from anyone else’s.

Super Pils is a classic pilsner character in a big, bold beer that drinks like an IPA. Euro-pils character, but bolder. Cool-fermented with our house ale yeast for a clean, smooth flavor with just the barest hint of fruitines. Perfect balance of malt and hops in classic pils fashion—just stronger. Unfiltered for better body and foam.

12 oz. bottle pours a clear golden color with small disappearing white head and a little lacing. Aroma has bready malts, light yeast, and grass, Taste is slightly sweet with a long dry finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden, until it creeps up on you, which made this a surprising pilsener for me. I doubt I’ll search for it again, though.

Bottle from Trade Joes, Chicago. Yellow color and a good jead, theu got the appearance right. Sadly it is downhill from there. Some noble hops but not enougj, and to get the alcohol up, they used a lot of malt which makes this too sweet.

Bottle at home. Grassy aroma. Sweet malt flavor, bit of grass, hops profile is kind of floral for a pils. High ABV is well hidden. Decent.

Bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear medium amber, white head cover, sheets of lace. Taste is straight malt that adds solid carbonation on the swallow, then moving. To strong floral hops for a long finish. Pretty straightforward, although there are hints of grass and of light ice.

Pour is a clear yellow with a large white head. Aroma is sweet syrupy malt with a bit of malt liquor like adjunct filler. Flavor is again a heavy sweet malt with a bit grassiness but finishes with some corn syrup thick sweetness. It does not have a horrible taste or aftertaste. It’s just a heavy, sweet, thick malt. I don’t get Impy pils as a style.

Draft pour. The beer is a clear gold with a white head. The aroma has grassy, herbs, dried fruit, and some light bandaid. The taste is fairly bitter and herbal throughout. It gets a little resinous. Medium body and medium carbonation. It gets a bit astringent, but is still mostly drinkable.

12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Yellow gold appearance with a white head. Mild aroma of pale malt, hop spice, floral notes, light herbs and light fruity esters. Similar flavor, moderate hop bitterness, a touch of fruity malt sweetness and a light dry, lingering bitter finish. Medium body with a pretty crisp and clean feel.
