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.

Clear gold pour with a 1 finger, creamy white head that has excellent retention and leaves great lacing. Aroma of toast, cereal and bready malt, floral, perfumey citrus and spicy hops. Flavor is slightly sweet and toasty up front, leading into some sweet grassiness, hay, lots of cereal, nice, spicy, light citrus and floral hop notes a little earthiness and lingering toast bring up the finish. Light body, neutral to off dry feel throughout with a soft, blanketing carbonation that seems to sharpen pleasantly as the body dries on each swallow. Really good stuff, very tasty and decently refreshing, the perfumey citrus is an interesting touch,. but I think it would be just as good, or better without the fruity additions.

Pours a light hazy rust orange. Has a strong citrus and floral hop aroma. A citrus hop taste with grains and light wheat. A medium body with a light dry grain and light hop aftertaste.

rosenbergh (8066) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 30, 2015
Draught at the Stateline Brewery, South Lake Tahoe, CA.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Sweet sugary maltiness in the aroma. Dry hops and sweet malt in the flavour. Soft carbonation. Boring.

At Daily. Pretty decent. Crisp, hoppy, more grapefruity and most pils and less grassy. Serving: Tap

Bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Nice clean light golden color with a frothy white head. Smells of classic pilsner malt with a hint of hops. Clean pils flavor with some hop bitterness on the back side. Creamy for such an easy drinking beer. Excellent summer sessio option.

Scent reminds me of a typical Czech pivo like we found in Prague, with just a hint of hops. Flavor was similar, but left me yearning for just a bit more hop flavor

Clear in appearance. Light piss yellow in color. Paper thin white head with little to no lacing. First thing i thought of in the aroma was the smell of someone smoking a bowl. It reminds me of the aroma of Heineken. Watery texture little carbonation. Tad bit peppery in the taste. Has little taste in the finish that ends before it starts. Do not get any hoppiness. Overall this is something not to get excited about but it is firestone walker so i will give it the benefit of the doubt.

EithCubes (5194) - New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2015
Bottle marked 03/18/15 (hoping that was bottling day!). Nose is beautifully noble, brightly citric and grassy with light musty funk/hay, a touch toasty with malty background, and there’s a touch of that elusive spaghetti sauce character I seem to be the only one able to detect. Just a touch floral. Pours ultra-clear pale yellow with a short soapy bright white head. Very crisp and lightly soapy medium body refreshes, leaves a touch of bread in the finish and light bitterness with a slight chalky coating. Semi-sweet but lent the feel of more dryness by the bitterness; floral, med-strong spicy, strongly grassy, and the medium citrus very fresh and vibrant. A distinct minerally character actually not clashing with the soapy hops, and the zesty lemon-orange leaders are just dynamite. Bitterness, like the beer overall, is clean, and the oversimplified malt still manages to do its job. A great one for America.

Pils yeasts taste too much and i’m searching the "hoppy". Looks like a poor European pils. Maybe a lack of freshness.

Mediocre appearance. Smells like a pils. Taste is above average, very smooth. Nice.
