COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Patio Pils is a pre-prohibition recipe lager with a modern twist. We improve on the traditional recipe made popular by German immigrants to the US during the mid 1800s, by replacing six-row barley and cluster hops with premium two-row pilsner malt and noble hop varietals. These improvements yield a lager which expertly balances malt sweetness with hop bitterness. As in the classic pre-prohibition recipes we add flaked maize, which imparts delightful fresh corn notes. <P> Patio Pils is an exceptional warm weather beer that stays true to its craft beer roots, bringing massive flavor concentration and generous hop aroma and taste to every sip.

This has got to be one of the best pilsners out there! Budweiser only wishes they could make a beer this good. The rating may seem high, but I'm rating it in the family of Pilsners and not comparing to other styles that I prefer or like better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SPDickerman (991) - Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Pours clear golden yellow with a medium white head. Smells sweet malty and of crisp, spicy hops. Taste is sweet and not like adjuncts with a pleasant crispness that is refreshing. Light bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Cigar City Patio Pils finishes crisp with a touch of sweetness.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2008
From Tap and Growler. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a two finger white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is loaded with sweet pilsner malt and corn flake goodness and a wonderfull balance of noble hops in the finish. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild to moderate amount of bitterness. This is one of the best Pilsners I have ever had.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Retorp. Pours a clear gold color with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet-corn-like malt, notes of grass and wheat, some hints of yeast, apples, and pears. Flavor is sweet and wheaty with notes of corn, grass, honey, and hints of malt and floral hops. Generally light bodied with a crisp finish. Excellent drinkable pilsner.

MeadMe (1332) - Riverview, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2009
from notes A: Pours a slightly cloudy amber hue. Nice foamy head with ok retention. Some spotty lace noted. S: The nose is all about the hops and the cedar. Lots of grapefruit with bold earthy woody fresh cut cedar. T: Same as aroma. Solid amber used as a base here. Nicely hopped with citrus notes. The cedar pushes through in the middle and overpowers. The finish if full of earthy woody cedar with brings out a touch of pepper like spice as well. M: On the thinner side of medium. Good carbonation. D: Not bad. Not CCBs best beer by far, but tasty and unique nonetheless.

From a Growler (Thanks Joe) Pours a golden straw yellow with thick rocky head that has a nice cloudy white tint. Smells of corn,pine , some fruity esters. Taste suprised me lots of hops, and citrus notes, with a little corn in there too which actually gave it a unique character. Palate was oh soo clean and well done. Overall this beer will be an everyday kind of beer for me. Love have this on hand all the time when I want a easy session beer with tons of flavor.

Thanks for the taste, Joe. Pours a smooth gold color with nice white head. Aroma is sweet corn, grass, and sugar. Flavor i smooth: lots of sweetness, some hops, and light malt. Very smooth, easy drinking, and relatively sessionable beer. Nice take on the pils style, not my favorite style, but this one is very easy-drinking.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Draft at the Blanskis. Ideal gleaming gold, foamy head. Dry, peppery aroma of old world hops, saaz, earthy, yeasty. Soft palate leaves a lot of herbal bitterness on the tongue. Bohemian character. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
