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.

TOSG55 (223) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very light straw color, with a solid head. Light aroma, mostly hop-driven, but with a hint of malt in the undertones. Refreshing flavor - the hops provide notes of citrus and a bit of pine; the malt complements the hops nicely, but lets them shine. A lot of subtle complexity. Very nice example of the style.

Ron (3277) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle. Clear light golden color with a nice frothy head. Aroma of citrus, hint of malt sweetness and herbal touch. Taste of citrus, light fruit and bit of malt sweetness. Easy crispness and a clean feel. Light body, crisp, clean and refreshing. The beer goes down easy. I was just hoping for more hops.

darbeer75 (120) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Aroma: faint hops and citrus - surprisingly good; Appearance: golden straw with thin head; good lacing; Taste: more IPA-like than pilsener; like a very light session IPA; Palate: slow, lightly bitter finish; Overall: very pleasant and drinkable; much better than average pilsener.

pineypower (2898) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Finally getting to some backlog. From Summer. Pours out a well carbonated golden color with a small white head. Aroma is clean grains, fresh cut grass, some nice floral notes and some sticky cereal. Taste is clean, grainy malt, cereal, floral and grassy hops, nice balance and a good amount of noble hops.

VsXsV (3645) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2016
Draught at Mikkeller San Francisco. Clear golden liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, light grain, citrus, bread and light earth. Taste is very light sweet and light bitter with notes of floral hops, light grain, citrus and light earth. Light to medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Excellent Pils. Good stuff.

Cybercat (4434) - Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Pours hazy golden with a white head. Fresh malt and fruity aroma invites at least a sample. Taste delivers crisp malty and woody hoppy tones, plus a fruity hint. Mouthfeel features average body and some good fizz, while a hint of slimy vegetable appears in the finish. Pilsner fans should like this one.
