COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was first brewed in Bohemia, but was later adapted by many breweries in Germany. Today, the German Pilsner is the most popular style of beer in Germany because of its refreshing bitterness and easy drinkability. For our unique Pils, we used 2 specific kinds of German noble hops which gives this beer a crisp and bitter taste with a medium-dry finish which lingers into the aftertaste. The use of the typical German malt provides our Pils with a dense and rich head, which is common for this style of beer.

Draft. Barley malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet creamy barley malt and light bitter hay flavor. Very nice - a great beer.

on-tap @ Blue Stallion / Lexington KY --- Clear, light straw color, head quickly drops to the rim, cobwebs of lace. Taste is German Pilsner all the way - malt that becomes a little sweeter in the palate, offset in the finish by floral hops and carbonation fizz. I also detect a hint of sulfur in the finish, similar to German Kolsch. A terrific example of the style, authentic in ways that most USA beers miss.

2oz taster on tap at the brewery. Totally clear, kind of bright, golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Couple dots of lace. Smooth, crisp, kind of lighter carbonation. Bready aroma, kind of biscuity. Lightly peppery, hints of citrus. Moderate sweet taste, light bitterness. Smooth, soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish, a light slickness. An impressive pils. I enjoyed this one quite a bit. Good pilsener type aromatics. Crisp, without being too heavy (like a lot of american style pils can be). Awesome stuff. One of the more impressive offerings from this brewery relative to the style.

~14 oz draft at the brewery in Lexington, Kentucky. The pour is a lightly hazed golden with a small white head. The aroma is cereal grain paired with floral hops and a general wet earth character. The taste is a lightly sweet cereal grain, cleanly balanced by a drying bitter floral. The palate is light to medium bodied, active carbonation and a clean floral earth finish. Simple and elegant, well made Pilsner.

Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #41. Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grainy, bready malts, grape-like fruit notes, mild grassy hops. The taste is pale doughy malts, noble hops, mild fruitiness. Medium bodied, faint lingering bitterness, lacks crispness.

Poured clear yellow. Nose is crisp clean hops, light flowers, and some light toasty malts. Taste really brings out, a biscuity and toasty malt flavor and a little husky. Clean flavor profile other than that. Not the best example of the style.

Tmoney99 (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Draft sample. Poured a clear bright golden color with an average frothy white head that was lasting and produced excellent lacing. Good complex floral hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with with a moderate bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a solid beer and one of the best of style.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2013 Aroma: (6- above average) Not a bunch of aroma in comparison to the flavor; some hay/light cereal malts, some grass, a bit of honey. Appearance: (4- high quality) Nearly still gold pour with foamy white head. Flavor: (7- noteworthy quality) Nose; a little white grape and a nice grassy presence, much more than the nose. Palate: (4- high quality) Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Well done; could use a bit more in the nose (which seemed a running theme for me with BSB).
