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.

Braudog (5932) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle. This is super lightly colored, but does have a nice body, with great head retention. There’s an assertive hop aspect, but overall this is a biscuity, Germanic pils on par with so many classic examples. I’m flabbergasted that this is so highly rated vis-a-vis so many other outstanding pilsners. #5912, 1/3/2014)
