COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everything we love about classic German Pilsner with a hoppy Bohemian twist. Pils is a bright straw colored lager beer with playful carbonation topped with beautiful white foam lace. Delicate lightly toasted malt flavors underscore noble German hop character. Hallertau-grown Magnum hops deliver the lupulin foundation while generous amounts of Spalter Select hops bring floral aromatic and spicy herbal notes. As a twist on the traditional Pils, we dry hop with German Saphir for a touch of bergamot zest and lemongrass. A refreshing, light-bodied and hop-driven Pils.

Appearance: Great pale yellow color for a pilsener. Smell: A nice hint of hops in the nose. Taste: Crisp and sharp as a pilsener should be, with the added bonus of some hop bite. Delicious. Mouthfeel: Light body and clean. Drinkability: A very easy drinking beer. Solid recommendation. Order me another.

Rating #3700 - On tap at White Owl Social Club - Pour clear yellow with a white head. The aroma has spicy / minty hops, pale dry pils malt, some cracker and a bit of a cracker / bready maltiness. It has a thin crisp body with semi-soft carbonation. The flavor begins with drier cracker-like malt, grass / spice hops and all is super clean and refreshing. The finish highlights the hops and shows lot of noble hop character. Great pils.

Draft at Charlestown Rathskeller. Clear deep golden color with a frothy white head. Aroma is lightly bready with aromatic earthy hops. Taste is a biscuity malt with earthy smooth hop bitterness. Good summer beer.

355ml bottle from Saveur Biere.

Hoppy pilsner aroma and some farm too. Clear and light yellow colour with a pure white head. Clean and clear pilsner without unnecessary tricks. Not so hoppy than I first thought. All right.

4oz on tap at Bridge in STL during RBSG. Clear golden color. Thin off-white head. Leaves great, full, thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Lightly soft. Awesome smooth easy-drinking texture here. Great bready malt, light pepper, good herbal hop to it. Moderate bitter, light sweet, nice dry edge to it. Awesome pilsener.

Saeglopur (265) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Crystal clear, golden body, with a big, frothy to creamy, white head, that dissipates quickly and leaves some lacing. Aroma of grains, flowers, citrus, herbs. Taste with the same aromas, also a tasty, honey like malt backbone, medium bitter and dry. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry, a bit fruity and again with this nice honey notes. Great! Especially the balance between bitter hops, fruity hops and sweet malts is perfect and makes this more complex than most Pilseners. This is indeed one of the most accomplished beers of this style I’ve had so far!

Clean straw hue with a lasting head. Floral and slightly fruit hop notes highlighting the pils malts. Touch of hop spice rounds off this very refreshing bier.

olio (5896) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2014
355 ml bottle. Bottled on 21.03.2014.
Pours clear pale golden color with a large white head. Lots of herbal and grassy notes on the aroma, floral hops, slight wooden notes with gooseberry bush. Slick oily palate, grassy hops and faint buttery notes on the flavor, some citric fruits also. Nothing special here, a very solid, balanced and not overly hopped brew. I would love to try a fresh bottle though.

Slipstream (1983) - USA - JUN 15, 2014
Straw colored pour. The aroma is sweet for the style, but the pilsener hops aroma is present also. It is very sharp and peppy for a pilsener, which is a good move imo. A little pine and pith is in there too, and there is some pleasant warmth in the finish. This is not your typical sorry, watery little pils, but a superior take on the style.

Draft at guilty goose nyc. Light tan color with a hoppy crisp pilsner taste to it. Very easy to drink and session
