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.

For my palate a hoppy Pils is a supremely tasty Pils. Firestone’s Pivo has everything I want from an American rendition of the German-style Pils. Yellow-gold pour with creamy white suds. Bread, grass, and bright citrus aromas. Excellent balance for a hop-forward take on Pils. Clean malt at the start. Bitter earth in the follow-up. The feel is just a bit sticky toward the finish, but the overall texture is lively and bright from the carbonation and crisp hops. Yup, this is how I like my Pils.

Cam from Callans consumed in the parents garden. Yellow to golden with a generous white head, carbonation well evident. Nose is bready malts, straw, lemon rind, toasted grain, light spice. Taste comprises pale malts, bread dough, vanilla, light floral hop bite, tangerine, citric sherbets. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close with a hoppy linger. Decent hopped up pils.

LazyPyro (482) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2016 355ml can from BrewDog. Extremely pale yellow colour with a dense frothy white head, collapsing to a slim head after a couple of minutes. Aroma is hoppy, grapefruit, grassy/straw notes, floral, soapy, dusty. Bittersweet flavours, grassy hops, citrus fruit, malt, grains.
A good pilsener but really hoppy for the style, I know that was the whole point of this particular beer but it seems closer to a pale ale at this point. Nice idea though, I liked this, but I think I’ll stick to actual pilseners when I want a light, crisp beer.

bottle from local bottle shop, clear golden pour with a white head. keep in mind that this is ’just’ a pilsner. i would stop drinking craftbeer is every pilsner was like this. it’s crisp, malty, citrussy, hoppy, mouthfeel is super refreshing with crisp minerals and summer cut grass. best pilsner i have had?

Can from Tanakaya. Pours a clear straw with a finger of white head that lingers. Very light grainy nose, but nothing really stands out. Nice grassy hops on the palate with good carbonation and clean, bitter finish. Not bad.

Marduk (6004) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 28, 2016
355ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Clear pale yellow color. Very weak aroma. To be honest can’t get any aromas. Perfume, some rubbery hops in taste. Dunno what it is. No emotions sparked.
