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.

A refreshingly good Pilsener. I was actually surprised by how pleasant it tasted.

Towey1989 (522) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Keg at Brewdog Bristol. A clear pale golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of lemon, grain, wheat, grass and floral, herbal hops. Taste is the same of lemon, grain, wheat, grass and floral, herbal hops. Light bodied and a smooth, soft carbonation for a pils. A soft, herbal bitterness in the finish with a lemony twang. Everything you want from a pils. Grassy, herbal, malty and citrusy. Didn’t blow me away but it’s such a flavourful, smooth beer.

Translucent straw with foamy white head. Poured 99% foam. Crisp light body with high carbonation.

Aroma: bright pilsener type malt, lemony citrus notes, wild yeast infection.

Taste: grassy pale malt, herbal and floral hops, with a fair amount of hop bitterness and some wild yeast character in the finish.

Been wanting to review this one for a long time. Sorry to say the aroma is not great. It is of the typical Pilsner car piss variety, only slightly better smelling than Budweiser. Appearance is golden with a large white bubbly head that leaves a lot of lacing. The latter is what makes it look different from most pilsners. Taste is very refreshing with hints of banana peel. Palate is solid. Overall I would say great for the style and well made, but I would rather have just about any IPA, imperial stout or barleywine. Probably the best Pilsner around, but most of us have graduated on to bigger and better things. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale golden straw body beneath a fading white head, grassy earthy herbal hop components blending into clean Pilsner malt on a clean yet creamy med light body smoothly fizzling away to a melon-pine-light biscuit residual

Clean, crisp, and delightfully hoppy. The site tells me I have to add more to this rating as my character count is under 75. So. . . this beer is "Clean, crisp, and delightfully hoppy."

Martinus (3637) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2015
Clear pale yellow colour, white head. Malty aroma, citrus, straw, light hops. Quite hoppy flavour, light bitter, citrus, hops. Finish lemon zest, staw, malts. For a Czech style pils it has a bit much lemon zest, but otherwise well within style. Nice!
(from 35.5cL bottle @ ElManana’s Massaman Chili tasting, Gent. Thanks for sharing, Bjorn!!)

Pale straw colour. There’s a little bit of light zestiness and a touch of herbal /grassiness. Really nice pils. Crisp, hoppy and super tasty.

The aroma is very hop forward with a spicy grassy character over powering the grainy malt component. Pivo poured with a big frothy white head that quickly disappointed to a clear light thin yellow. The hops again come to life at first sip towards the middle and finish with a bit of a bitter bite, reminding you that this is a firestone product. The malt comfortably follows along for a clean smooth grainyness. The beer drink extremely well it’s very crisp perfect for the style. I feel at times that I may be picking up a sulfury component which is the only downfall for me.
