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.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer and leaves good lacing. Smell is of malt, grain, grass, and hay. Taste is much the same with a mild herbal bitterness on the palate with each sip. A good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an excellent pilsner that is tasty, refreshing, and very easy to drink.

Clear light yellow golden with a good sized frothy white head. Pretty rich in character compared to others of the style. Crisp and refreshing with a great feeling body. Quite a bit of sweetness.. Not overly dry. Some skunky bud, some grassy/straw, some fruitiness, crackery, grain, perfumey. A touch spicy with lighter moderate bitterness. Super drinkability. Probably a new favorite pils.

super smooth, crisp, refreshing, it’s something that always goes down easy, not super strong aroma, but nice balance of citrus, hops, straw.

lusikka (6184) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma is very rich and grassy with some mild graininess and strong herbal notes. Rich grassy and noble hoppy flavour with herbs, floral notes, lemon zest and some hay. Medium bodied and a dry, very bitter, grassy finish. Extremely well balanced. Great.

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.
