COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pilsener originated in what is now the Czech Republic. And, like true Czech Pilsners, ours is aggressively hopped early in the boil giving it a clean crispness without a hoppy flavor. It is brewed entirely with superior German Pilsen malt to give it a pale straw color, a thick, lasting rocky head and a palate dominated by maltiness. Fresh Czech Saaz hops provide a delicate spicy aroma. Phoenix Pils is named for the brewmaster's original brewery.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 4, 2008
A decent, non-descript textbook example of a pilsner in a goodway. This is really well done, its really simple and really tasty for what it is. Very clean and crisp on the palate, with a fresh bread maltiness, smoothed out by some spicy bitter hop notes in the finish.

Cybercat (3276) - Georgia, USA - JUN 24, 2007
This is the best pilsner I have ever had! Pours a beautiful golden opaque amber so it looks like honey. Aroma is hoppy with some maltiness and a hint of lemon. Rich flavor has a nice balance of hops and malt, along with a lemony overtone. Aftertaste is very pleasant and smooth. Satisfying and refreshing, this is another winner from Five Seasons!

alexanderj (3311) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUN 18, 2007
On tap at brewpup w/ kleyland. Poured a clear gold with not much head. Aroma was somewhat floral, caramel and spice. Flavor was about the same. Pretty good for the style

pivo (2561) - GERMANY - MAR 27, 2007
Whiff of sulfur in the nose, pale gold color, creamy sticky head. A little butter in the middel of a light pale malt base. Spicy hop end. Soapy mouth feel. OK for a North American pils, but not so good for the style overall.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2007
On tap at the brewpub in July 2006: Pours a lightly effervescent clear golden with a nicely-lacing frothy white head. Mild noble hoppy aroma has a touch of dry earthy pale malt. Body starts with a mild grainy maltiness and a hint of sweet caramel toward a thinner, bitter finish. Drinkable, but uninteresting and could have more of a fresher Saaz hoppy character.

marksahara (79) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 24, 2006
On draught from keg direct from 5 Seasons. Wonderful pour, lots of healthy creamy crown with excellent retention and lacing. Clear golden yellow appearance. Aroma is floral and herbal with hints of citrus. I picked up some ester and earth tones, as well. Moderately hoppy flavour with a medium bodied palate. Prominent malt backbone balances well in this beer, which I’m usually not a big fan of pilsners. I also detected flavours of wheat, and a sweetness reminiscent of caramel or honey. Crisp and clean finish makes this beer very drinkable. Overall not a bad beer.
