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.

leghorn99 (229) - Livorno, ITALY - SEP 18, 2016
Colore giallo dorato, pallido; sottile schiuma bianca, carbonazione sempre ben visibile. Aroma molto fresco e dal profumo floreale; sottili note di miele e agrumi, con un persistente profumo erbaceo nel retrolfatto. Qualche nota pepata, con un pizzico di sedano. In bocca si viene raggiunti dal carattere classico di malto, ma ci sono essenzialmente due combinazioni di sapori in questa birra: dolcezza di malto Pilsener, seguita dall’amaro di luppolo, con note piccanti e finale asciutto. Ottima bevibilità grazie al corpo leggero, ed una carbonazione elevata.

Bottle. A- Grassy, spices, pine. A- Golden color, clear liquid, white head. T- Grassy, slightly hoppy, pine. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish. O- Decent stuff. Definitely not your typical pils. A nice hoppy touch that reminds me a lot of Victory Prima Pils.

mathieuc (3318) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 17, 2016
Pours a clear pale golden with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is peppery and slightly grassy. Taste is dry and moderately bitter, offers more peppery/lightly esrthy hops over a soft malty base. Crisp cereals for the most part but it does feel a little doughy at times, too. Body is medium, carbonation moderate. A fine hoppy pils with a good hoppy bite! This would certainly be a go to if it was local/more available to me.

Andrew196 (1438) - Katy, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear, rich yellow with a spotty white head, almost eggshell. Aroma of hay, very mild florals, apple, pear. Toasted cereal throughout the flavor with some nondescript fruits peeking through. Some skunk towards the finish which didn’t exactly leave me begging for more....still, not bad.

jonno (2489) - JAPAN - AUG 13, 2016
Love the brewery, but this is a fairly limp effort. Not Pils like in any real form, more like a hopped up lager with out the character of body of the German/Czech classics or even some of the new world Kiwi varities. Decent lawnmower beer, but will pass next time.

Can into pint glass. Pours a clear straw straw colour with white head. Aroma is faint stone fruit and toast. Taste is toasty malt and a bittersweet fruitiness.

Canned. Can’t believe I didn’t rate this before. One of the 6 I got was skunked but still when this is on it has it all.
