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.

I can say this beer looks and tastes exactly like the label. It is a full flavored, tasty beer. However anyone expecting a clean, refreshing pilsner will be disappointed. It’s more like a red ale or IPA. I am rating to flavor rather than style.

This one poured a golden yellow with a white head. Aroma was of grassy hops and butter. Flavor was under fermented grain and grass.

2014 on tap. Nice straw color. Toasted malt, a little lemon. Only slight bitterness. Innocuous and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle into a 3F pint glass. Pours a nice straw colour. Little head and zero lacing. Grassy aroma. Mouthfeel is dead on for the style maybe a tad bit sweet/greasy. Taste is mild hops grass lemon and sugar cane. Good solid pilsner. But at the price there a lot of others I prefer. Especially the fresher locals. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled on 04/16/14. This was poured into a pilsener. The appearance was a nice looking somewhat transparent yellow color with a two finger lasting head. When the head was about at least four fingers, it mushroom capped and fell at a nice pace leaving a really nice semi thick foamy white lacing. Carbonation was seen rising at a moderate pace to keep the two fingers of head a bit longer. The smell had some lightly toasted bready malts coming through in a sweet way. In the background, a light crisp spicy hops maintains for balance. The taste was mainly sweet and had a decent crisp toasty bready make up. The aftertaste was sweet and crisp breadiness. The finish was dry and sweet. On the palate, this one sat pretty light and showed a great sessionability about it. The carbonation was only as sharp as was expected for the style. Overall, this was a pretty good German pilsener well worthy of having again.

12oz bottle. Pours out a crisp straw topped with a white head. Nose is cereal malts grass lemon zest and some bread. Taste is as the nose with a good amount of hops and a nice touch of malts to seal the deal.

Pours a pale golden color with a finger or two of white fizzy foam. Nose is spicy earthy yeast, fresh floral grass, doughy bread. Palate follows with bright clean flavors and nice spicy hop presence. Great balance of bready malts and bitter crispness. Dry finish.

ARH (338) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2014 12oz bottle poured into a footed pilsener glass. The aroma is a light, dry lemon zest cereal, and straw. There’s a touch of soapiness to it too along with light floral and grass notes. It pours a sparkling clear, pale yellow with a whipped foam, white head. A thick ring is retained, with a healthy surface layer, and lots of sticky puffy lace. The taste is a medium bitter with a light sweetness, a very dry and crisp combination. The light body has a creamy texture to it with lots of fuzzy carbonation. There’s a distinct pine note and lemongrass on the finish. It does have a bit of a "cleanser" quality to it. The aftertaste is light, and mellow with a weak pine and cereal character.

Crisp, rather dry. Citrus zest along with grain. A nice bitter hoppiness to the finish. Refreshing and easy to drink.
