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.

This was a real treat. Very sessionable pilsner, crisp and refreshing with very light malt mouthfeel. Paired up great with an appetizer - perfect first beer out of the gate.

HKdIPA (300) - HONG KONG - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle at Brian's in Brooklyn. Light golden completely clear pour with thin frothy head. Aroma starts with standard pilsener but danker and a bit juicier. Taste too - like a pilsener but fuller body and bigger, rounder taste. Still maintains a dry bitter finish with some hops. Very good pilsener.

pete4999 (1129) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2014
On tap somewhere in Chicago. Don’t really remember where. Nice bright yellow pour. Easy to drink, a nice little hop character but really just a crisp easy-drinker. A little bit of citrus but not too much. Nice take on a traditional German style.

Draft at Barrel Republic. Pours clear pale gold with a thick, creamy white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like straw, grass, a hint of citrus, and musky light malt. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like musky pale malts, straw, and a hint of dry lemony citrus.
