COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Butte Creek Organic Pilsner is light, crisp, refreshing, and delicious, just like a pilsner should be. This pilsner was recognized as a Gold Medal Winner at the Great American Beer Festival. Brewed with organic Pale and Carapils malts, and Wakatu and Organic Sterling hops - we use only the finest ingredients to make this easy drinking beer. To ensure that our Organic Pilsner is "Pilsner Perfect," we use a lager yeast to fashion that smooth, dry finish so characteristic of the pilsner style. This satisfying Americanization of an old German style beer can be enjoyed both liberally and frequently! 4.5% ABV, OG 11.5, IBU 26.

Ratman197 (11372) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Bottle poured a clear yellow with a small lasting white head. Aromas of straw, graininess and light yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of light straw and light bred with a crisp clean finish. Wheres the flavor? Help I can’t taste my beer!

Cajun (197) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle - Pale yellow, white head. Grass/straw, lemon, floral nose. Light drinkable flavor, very well balanced of malt and hops. A good pils, and I was surprised. Bravo.

Surprising amber color with a nice aroma this was a great beer to drink. The flavors where stronger than most normal pils. Loved the malt and hop balance. A great easy drinking beer.

vyvvy (4737) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Pours lightly hazy yellow with a very sudsy white head. The aroma has grainy pils malt, light creamy richness and traces of spicy hops. Medium body that is grainy with some semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with grainy pale malt, citric lemon and light spice. The flavors are very muddled. The finish is spicier and has more pronounced citrus. This doesn’t seem to be very true to style and comes across as a very fair beer.

Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2007
Hazy straw colour. Spicy, slightly yeasty aroma with breezy malts. Low bitterness. Touch of hop grassiness, though. Slightly toasty malts lead to a crisp finish.

Purchased at Whole Foods Light summery pilsner, more flavor than Bud light, but still light enough to drink on a hot day.

Pours a very light straw yellow color with a white head. Aroma is of light malts and slight fruits. Flavor is malty with a fruity finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 21, 2007
Poured a slightly hazed light yellow with a large white head. Floral and earthy hop aroma over a mild malt with some citrus. Malty and grainy flavor with a moderatley bitter dry finish.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - APR 19, 2007
Crisp and slightly sulfery tasting pils, yeasty with a herbal hop finish. Slightly woody tasting and lemony notes. Pours hazy yellow with a strong white head. Not very similar to urquell, but a nice pils in its own way.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Sulphury notes peruse through the frank herbal hops and their savoury spiciness in this highly drinkable and flavorful Pilsener.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the witbier-like hazy pale yellow.
-Herbal, wooden hops sprinkle joy throughout, branching out into citrusy and grassy personas once in a while.
-Body’s loose and watery at times, but the wet straw maltiness manages to hold every flavor in check.
-Carbonation might be more relaxed than the usual pils, but then again this one doesn’t feel like it’s aiming at Czech or German lineage specifically.
