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.

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle, 12oz. It’s a clear, golden beer with a finger-thick white head. The aroma is grassy and piney, with some malty hints and a faint touch of hay. It’s full-bodied and dry on the palate, with a nice bitter flavor. There’s some pale malts in the flavor, but the hops most definitely wins. Lasting bitterness in the end. A refreshing and quenching pilsner that certainly tastes great as well. 130809
