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.

Light grain aroma. Quite flavorful for a pils. Light lemon taste. Hoppy mouthfeel. Medium bitterness. Long bitter finish. Overall flavorful for a light beer like this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Kinz (3709) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Draft at The Answer. Medium gold, clear, nice head. Aroma of spicy and floral hops, some crackery malts. Flavor matches. Nicely clean for the most part. Hops not as aggressive as I had been hoping, but hardly a bad beer. Liked it.

Poured into a sample glass at WilliBrew: Pours clear yellow / golden with a decent fluffy white head. Aroma of cracker malts, pils malts and other German malts, light citrus, noble hops. Taste is dry, crackers, bread, grass, light citrus, lightly floral. This is a really tasty light beer that would be a staple for the summer.

radio_nowhere (1369) - Maryland, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Can into pils glass, clear bright golden color with off-white head. Aroma notes of grainy malt sweetness, bread and light citrus hops. Taste adds more grass, tropical notes and biscuit. Light body, moderate-heavy carbonation, crisp, tad dry with light citrus bitter finish. Nice pils with some balanced extra citrus.

Sample at WOBFest 2016. This is a pilsener I could drink. Has the same body and coloring of a regular old domestic, but they added some hops bitterness and a little best of lemon citrus to make this very drinkable.

SeniorZozo (1037) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 13, 2016
Clear golden pour with some head that stuck around for a while. Aroma and taste of grain, malt and hops. Not bad when on a rooftop in Vegas enjoying the nice weather.

For my palate a hoppy Pils is a supremely tasty Pils. Firestone’s Pivo has everything I want from an American rendition of the German-style Pils. Yellow-gold pour with creamy white suds. Bread, grass, and bright citrus aromas. Excellent balance for a hop-forward take on Pils. Clean malt at the start. Bitter earth in the follow-up. The feel is just a bit sticky toward the finish, but the overall texture is lively and bright from the carbonation and crisp hops. Yup, this is how I like my Pils.

Theydon_Bois (16262) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Cam from Callans consumed in the parents garden. Yellow to golden with a generous white head, carbonation well evident. Nose is bready malts, straw, lemon rind, toasted grain, light spice. Taste comprises pale malts, bread dough, vanilla, light floral hop bite, tangerine, citric sherbets. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close with a hoppy linger. Decent hopped up pils.
