The second annual lager in our line of slightly more serious, limited run beers, this one is brewed in late Spring -- in preparation for hot summer months. Imported Belgian Pilsen barley lends a consistent malt component which is balanced by fine German hops. Careful fermentation with a traditional lager yeast finishes this beer for a clean and refreshing break from the day...Edge City Series. Slightly more serious, always worth savoring.

(2008)This was a very tasty pilsner. It was light and refreshing. This would be a great beer on a nice hot summer day. I would definitely buy this beer again.

Draft at SBR. Tasted on 7/11/09. Pours a pale yellow (SRM 3) ovr a clear body....nose light hop, mild malt, no spice from hop, no bite....taste is grass, corn and ?lime....very light mouth feel. Not enough hop nose or spice taste to be really good.

Crushed at the Pumphouse Spring Beer Festival. Very yeasty pilsener. Some malt on the nose with a bit of poop. Flavor is yeasty and a bit sour but it’s aight.

Had this beer on 7/9/2005. Aroma is a sweet bright malt scent. Color is a bright yellow/gold with good carbonation and thin head. Taste is clean and bitter. Starting with a light body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish comes on with a smooth malt flavor backed by a faint hop flavor and a bold bitter end. This may be one of the best and most well rounded Pilsners I have ever had.

Great micro pilsner - very refreshing taste and worth the trip to the brewery. Also served at Sky Sox games.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 The whole collection of Bristol brews that are only available (and drinkable) at the Bristol brewpub is the biggest secret in Colorado Springs, second only to NORAD, and everybody at least knows NORAD is there. So I like to pop in to the brewery every once and awhile and see what’s on tap. Last time it was Skull & Bones, and making the typical naïve college assumption I expected it this time around too. No such luck I’m afraid, but they did have two others of mild interest: Edge City Wit and Edge City Pilsner. The Pilsner was actually purchased by my friend, but we had something of a sampler session. I continue to stand by my love for Winter Warlock - and little else of Bristol’s. The Pilsner was a fairly regular pilsner and lacked the charm that instills most of Bristol’s beverages, even though they may not be the most complex or spirited. It sat upright in its glass like a bubbly column of neon yellow; an inch thick cap of alpine white crested on the top making a foam moustache free sip impossible. A thorough search with all two of my nostrils yielded no discernible scent. I may attribute this to the open, sterile and crowded nature of the bar. I may also attribute it to the veritable foam cork that plugged the top of the beer. The taste was pretty clear – not watery. It bubbled and trickled with a very feint pilsner taste, tinged with a light skunkiness and left bereft of anything that could make it a strong pils. While not burdensome, it’s not enlightening and lacked any character that would make it a beer eminent in my memory. If you ever visit the Brewpub I’d recommend having something else poured – especially as this winter gives us such a wonderful sweet stout benison poured under the guise of a green-faced magician.

Bomber {Thanks to BeerandBlues2} poured a hazy gold with a small quickly dissapating white head. Aromas of breadlike malt and a touch of citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of cereal, fruitiness and and a hint of lemon with a smooth lingering bitter finish.
