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.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2015 Tap at Fiddlers, NW Harvest auction night 12/10/13. Beautiful clear light gold with a white head. Very dry, straw and lemon, cracker malts. Tasty stuff!

Revisit in the bottle 7/12/15. Dry, hop oils relatively prominent on the late close, more so than I like with a pils (compare Urquel or Trumer). Still, plenty tasty. I’d go around 3.6 but whatever, I’ll let the original rating stand.

Bottle in Las Vegas, NV. Drank from a shitty little hotel glass. But what the hell...my snifters are at home. Pours a beautiful golden wheat, but completely clear. Nice carbonation and head. Some sporadic lacing. Aroma is classic pils Germany all over it. Malts balance very well with the hops in the taste. Straw, light bread, herbal grasses, with a nice crisp finish. Little hops bitterness at the very end. I love it!

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - DEC 10, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a small white head that soon recedes to a film. The aroma was mild with hay, floral and breads. The taste was spicy rye breads, bergamot, and bitter nuts. The palate was light and crisp and appropriate for the style and the carbonation was lively. Finished medium in duration and dry. Overall: Decent Pils.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 8, 2013
355ml/12floz bottle into a shaker; served cold. Aroma: Grapefruit and lemony hops and light malt. Nice to find a pilsener that doesn’t reek of corn! Appearance: Clear bright yellow body with a quickly dissipating white head. Lotsa bubbles. Super lacing! Taste: Wow that is nice and hoppy! Grapefruit and other citrus hops; not as bitter as your west coast IPAs at all. Bold but nothing that’s gonna scare away new craft drinkers. Nice malt backbone. Palate: Light-medium body, not watery at all. Moderate duration on the finish, which is mildly bitter and sits on the back of the tongue. Overall: Exemplary pilsener with that hoppy west-coast twist. Really great stuff. Good for newcomers to craft beer as well as veterans looking for something light but uncompromising.

Wow. Yes this is good. Lightly hazed yellow, frothy short head,slight lace. Lemon grainy sweet butter aroma. Grassy hoppy floral,citrus,sweet grainy malt deliciousness. Great concept,and it works well. I really like the german/boemian thing it does work. This beer here makes me proud to buy beer made in America! Not surpised that its a great beer, Firestone has created a great quality brand of beer. Everything they make is high quality. One of the best Pilsners Ive had ever.

Westmeister (2096) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Shared with EricTeusink. This was super fresh skunky hops awesomeness. Pours a completely clear gold with nice white head that clings to the glass throughout. Nose is more citrus than most pils with a clean malt profile and some of that known pils hops character as well. Taste is more fresh pils hops, citrus, and clean malt. Wonderful pils. And I am a sucker for a good one.

Pint at Falling Rock. Best way to describe this: solid, clean pils. It’s not an overhopped American take, but a solidly hoppy and remarkably clean pils. Lots of dough, crackers, spicy wooden hops, immaculately clean malt and hop balance. It’s a little late in the year for me to drink a lot of this, but next spring and summer it is on. It is on.

Bottle, crystal clear very light straw color. No head, just a quick fizzy effervescence. Pale malt light cidery aroma. Clean fairly bitter light grain and cereal flavor. Some nice hoppy tones late. A pilsener with some character. Nice
