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.

An excellent Pils! Most Ratebeer members favor the heavier beers, especially IPAs and Imperial IPAs. So, the lighter beers (Pils, lagers and wheats) never seem to rate as high as heavier beers. Do not be deceived by the ratings, Gringolandia Super Pils is an excellent Pils. A bold, clean, crisp beer with a hint of fruit. I almost made the mistake of not trying this beer due to lower ratings, but my local package store clerk strongly recommended Gringolandia. A great beer.

Aroma is lemon, citrus and slightly perfumed. The flavor is lemons, citrus, malts and a mix of bitter and alcohol in the finish.

Tallahassee, Fl. On tap - Brass Tap - Midtown. Slight hazy medium golden pour, white head, no lacing. Fresh minty aroma, hints of grapefruit..Flavor has some honey notes, some yeasty accents, a touch of mango sweet fruitiness. Thick enough mouthfeel. Very decent.

Poured from the bottle of a 6-pack into a pint glass. I like strong beer that is different from what is out there and this is definitely that kind of beer, but I have a few discrepancies with the commercial description which reads: "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." First off this tastes nothing like a Pils, it’s a Hefe Weizen, and the only way it drinks like an IPA is the ABV. It is smooth but it’s nothing if not fruity and not bitter what so ever like a pils. I’m not sure what beers were tasted to learn the classic pils fashion but none of them were classic pils. All discrepancies aside I really like this beer, a strong Hefe done very well. This is one of the only beers I’ve seen that is 7+ and isn’t and IPA so thumbs up to that, but go drink a Staropramen and then come and talk to me about pils.

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Location: Draft at The Gage, Independence Day 2014

Aroma: The nose is fruity, with some pilsener malts, a bit of yeast, and some spice
Appearance: It pours a hazed yellow color with a nice, creamy head on it
Flavor: The flavor is along the same line, balanced with fruit, lager yeast, and some spice
Palate: The body is medium-plus, it has a decent mouthfeel, and a soft carbonation
Overall Impression: I thought this one was solid. I can’t too much higher than that though, but there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a nice, solid beer.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2014
I’ll admit, the "65 IBUs" on the label was what attracted this non-repentant hop-head to this beer. Also, based on the few brews that I’ve tried of theirs already, 5 Rabbit is a very welcome addition to the Chicago area beer scene.
Nice head on this beer, tall and creamy initially,k it slowly collapses in chunks, giving it a rocky appearance. Oh - and the body has slightly hazed yellow look to it. It’s got a very lively aroma - from the hops a touch of the floral, some very ripe tangerines, an orange or two, a hint of zest - from the malt, a light cereal sweetness. This has a soft yet full mouthfeel... a comment that will only make sense to one who’s tried this beer. The flavor blends all the sensations from the nose quite masterfully, adding a bitterness that, although not intense, satisfies this old hop-head. The finish has a powdery dryness to it and a subtle bitterness that lingers a long, long while. I’m impressed.
This is a great beer to sip, gulp, or swig. Try it and enjoy.

beersorcerer (37) - Armpit of the Panhandle, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2014
On tap at Momo’s - and I missed it! Hometown brew in 12oz from brother brewer. Slightly fruity aroma with the expected hoppiness and faint smell of malt, a bit darker on the pour for a pils. Head disappeared quickly. Clean palate with a bit of bitterness a mild hint of malt in the finish. All in all not bad for a Gringo-brew.

Patrickctenchi (3646) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle: Nearly clear, yellow-gold with a thin white head. Lemon polish scent.... Grain, sugary lemon and alcohol flavour... Fairly smooth and mild for an Imperial.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale Pilsner malts, grass, mild lemony citrus, some general dry bitterness to the finish, I’ve not been very impressed by anything from these guys and this does nothing to change my mind.

Aurelius (4167) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Misty, light greenish-gold; small stiff white head. Lemony, malty aroma. Pretty fruity for a pils, medium sweet, pleasantly bitter. Mouthy. Pineapple and grapefruit, citrus pith in the finish. On tap, Momo’s @ Market Street.

Bottle. Lemon malt and astringent alcohol aroma. Pale yellow with small head. Lightly sweet lemon and barley malt flavor. Hint of alcohol in finish. Luckily the alcohol isn’t as dominate in the flavor as the aroma.
