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.

For the style this is quite good: Aroma of sweet hops, light spice bit of earth and grass. Pours a totally clear yellow with a nice super white head that last a few minutes. Taste is very well balanced between sweet light malts and hops bitterness. palate is refreshing and a bit dry. overall a very nice refreshing expertly made pilsner from firestone walker. but a pilsner is still a pilsner.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, smells refreshing and like lemon. Looks bright yellow with some foam. Thought that the citrus taste took the place of the Pils bite that I was expecting and is noticeably missing, didn’t really seem hoppy either. Pretty good if you aren’t expecting it to be a classic German Pils, definitely different.

nose: just washed linen, vanilla bean ice cream, citrus leaf tea. palate: this is just magic in a bottle. it’s clean, sharp, fresh, extremely aromatic, balanced, with an awesome dose of hops that weave in and out of the the tongue and throat. finish is long and moderately bitter to give the whole thing an edginess missing from most lagers. one of my top 10 beers!

Bottle from the South Loop Binny's served in a footed pilsner glass. It pours a clear gold with a fizzy head and a bready malt aroma with some soapy floral hop notes. Medium bodied with a crisp pilsner malt taste and light saphir hoppiness. Great easy drinking stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
