COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Red Hills Pils is a classic Czech-style pilsner beer. Refreshingly quenching and deliciously malty. Pilsners are the perfect summer beer. This one features Saaz hops for an herbal, slighlty spicy palate, and a traditional Bohemian lager yeast for a clean finish

This beer pours hazy straw-colored with a medium white head. Only decent retention and lace (like more in a pils). Saaz aromas leap out on first sniff, but tragically disappear after a few minutes. I’ve had this problem before with GV - really nice aromas that only last a few minutes. The malts then develop in the nose. Red Hills Pils is full-bodied and a little bitter for the style, with some hops in the finish as well. The main flavors are pale malts and a little bit of acidity. The first whiff was very promising, and the beer turned out to be very average.

On tap at Golden Valley Brewery. Pale yellow. Labatt with a slightly more complex flavour. Nothing more to say about it.

[Tap – Brewery] This off reddish colored beer with a good nose was a great start finally. It was a easy to drink session beer and this was true so far for all Golden Valley brews. Crisp and had a slight bitterness this was becoming something. Good Job.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2006
This would be another great beer that I could just drink constantly as a session beer. A rich take on the style, with a nice body that is just enough of all its components that you do not get bored drinking it. The only things that got me was a bit of a cheesy pepper bite that came up from time to time in the finish. Otherwise very light, crips and refrshing

On tap at the brewery. This was a nice crisp grassy pils. Pours a nice glowing straw gold with great clarity and a fizzy white head. Great hop presence giving it a very crisp and refreshing flavor and a medium dry finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Pale gold, ring of head, film of lacing. Aroma of clean pale malt & grassy faint hops. Not as toasty as I like but clean, refreshing, but ultimately boring.

Medium gold color. Medium head. Aroma is malty, grainy and fruity. A medium bodied pilsner. Malts are fruity, mild and slightly sweet. Hops are slightly spicy and a touch grapefruit and floral. Well balanced. Light and refreshing. Nice pilsner. Smooth. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
