COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Pre-Flight Pilsner is a pre-prohibition style pilsner, fuller in body with a distinct, spicy hop presence, attributed to the Hallertauer and Saaz hops used to brew it. Offering 5.0 percent ABV and 30 IBUs, it’s perfect for the next time you’re assigned that middle seat on a cross-country red-eye.

Can from Bob’s.

Despite the fact that I like them, I haven’t been drinking all that many pilseners lately, so it’s kind of a special thing to crack one open and sip away at something quite different than the usual IPA, saison, or Belgian ale. Light gold pour with a huge fluffy white head into my stemmed Stella glass. The aroma is, well, Pilsener. Grassy Saaz hops, perfumy wildflowers, mixed together with the sort of sour skunky thing that one gets all too often with bottled/canned examples of this style. Flavor: cracker malts (stone ground wheat thins!) turning a touch sweet in the finish -- honeysuckle -- before yielding to the aggressively hopped bitterness at the close, in a way that signals American Microbrewery Pils. Well carbonated, foaming up again on the tongue. This is a pretty decent beer, even if it does favor muscle over balance.

Decent pre pro pils. Solid malt backbone with wholesome notes of bread dough, earth and a honey-ish sweetness. Spicy hops with a healthy bitterness.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Draft @ Airways. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of bready pils malt, hay, noble hop and light corn. Flavor is more bready malt, firmly bitter with a clean yeast profile. Light body, crisp and refreshing. Excellent beer for the style.
