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.

rosenbergh (8316) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2015
16 oz can. (The Beer Mongers) Portland, OR.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Dry grainy and bready malty aroma with some grassy hoppy notes. The flavour is grassy hops, mild bitterness, grainy dryness and some bready maltiness. Decent. Nice can. Even though I don’t have a flight to catch this tastes good.

16 ounce can. Looks like a airplane beer. In fact, get this beer on airplanes right now! Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. A sweet toast and corn nose. Smooth Pils malt, sweet, a bit of sulfur and spicy hops. Pretty nice, smooth. Easy beer.

16 oz. can from bhensonb. Pours light golden with a huge white head and a malty aroma. There is a clean pilsner malt flavor with modest finishing bitterness. Refreshing

Oakes (13303) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2015
Slightly hazy blonde. Earthy continental hop nose with slightly doughy pale malts. Moderate bittermess, nice clean malt sweetness, hops are slightly fruity. Not great but I like it.

Theydon_Bois (12178) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2014
Keg at the taproom, 07/11/14. Clear light golden with a decent off white covering. Nose is pale malt, straw, light citrics, grain husk, clean aroma. Taste comprises pale malts, grain, light cereal, hint floral, berady tones. Medium body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent pils, clean and to the point!

andrewje41 (1195) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2014
16 oz can pour. Pours a very light, ginger ale like color with a foamy head. Slight grassy like aroma. I’m very alright with this beer. Super light, and a decent crisp flavor to it. I guess it all depends on what you are looking for. If you want something super light and refreshing, here you go. I enjoyed this.

mcberko (8738) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap at Airways, pours a clear dull blonde with a small white head. Aroma and flavour are pretty crisp, with crackery malt, toasted bread, and a touch of sweet cereal malt. Really well-made. Highly drinkable. Very nice.

Davhgbrew (947) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Corny and grainy aroma. Flavor is similar to the aroma. There is a distinct overly bitter flavor that comes in the middle and persists in the finish unpleasantly. It has a crisp palate, carbonation is medium and satifies, but this brew just overpowers with hop flavor and bitterness to make it Sessionable.

Can. Pours clear yellow color with a pretty huge frothy white head on it. Nose has some corn and grains in there, but nothing particularly exciting about it. Taste has a longer lasting sweetness that takes away any crispness, with an odd bitter aftertaste. Not my thing.
