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.

elbernays (918) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 25, 2015
Can from McHughs. Pours straw gold with lasting foam head. Excellent clarity. Hay, straw Aroma. Not picking up hops and a little diacethnyl. Biscuit malt base with a slight bitter dry finish. Always worry about the travel I?d these beers and whether we get the freshest beer. Can says 16.06.15. Going to assume this is canning date. Clean fresh and drinkable.

kramer (5395) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a one finger frothy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is beautiful, lots of great delicate hops over a clean bready malt base. The flavor is just as clean and smooth with a perfect hop level and malt bill. This is just about all you can ask for from a nice Pils. Light bodied, crisp hoppiness, soft nuanced finish. Lingering light bitterness on the finish. Great stuff.

On tap. Served a 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. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy.

50belair (2968) - Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2015
On tap at the Blind Tiger. Clear pale yellow pour with a white head. Boy that champaign like Pilsner character jumps right out at you. Full of flavor with a nice body. It’s not overly complex, but it’s a Pilsner. So, there you go. Another solid beer from FW. Good mouthfeel.

gEUS (1503) - Linden, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2015
can. Pours ultra clear pale yellow, fine carbonation, even when warmed up. Agreeable malt nose, even with the tad of metal, citrus hops and even a minty kick to it. Interesting Light sweet body, little hop bitterness kick. Taste is pale malt, iron(y). Agreeable beer for such low abv. This beats all of the other Industrial lagers easily, also drinkability level is way better.

ben4321 (4831) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Location: 12 oz can from Hoboken Vine, 8/14/15

Aroma: It has a clean, grassy, pine, and pale malt aroma
Appearance: The pour is a clear form color with a small white head and light, spotty lace
Flavor: Tastes clean and a little sweet with a nice, lighter hop bitterness
Palate: The body Issy light, not watery, with average-plus carbonation, and a clean, dry finish
