COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Customers have spoken and GLBC has listened! On Thursday, December 17, 2009 (the 106th anniversary of the first fixed-wing flight), GLBC’s Brewpub will release The Wright Pils, a classic pilsner style beer with a flowery bouquet and elegantly dry finish. Named after the brothers Wright who built the world’s first successful controlled airplane, this pilsner, like these local heroes, has all the Wright stuff! In early 2010, expect to see The Wright Pils in 6-packs in the GLBC Gift Shop, as well as on draft in Concourse C at Cleveland Hopkins Airport! TYPE/STYLE: Pilsner. Until the 1840s, most Bohemian (now Czech Republic) beers were top-fermented, dark and cloudy, although Bavarian brewers had begun experimenting through "lagering" beer in cool caves using bottom-fermenting yeasts, which improved the beer’s clarity, flavor, and shelf-life. The Burgess Brewery recruited the Bavarian brewer Josef Groll who, using new techniques and the newly available paler malts, created the first batch of modern pilsener on October 5, 1842. The combination of pale color from the new malts (aided by the Bohemian city of Plzen’s remarkably soft water), noble hops and Bavarian-style lagering produced a clear, golden beer which caused a sensation. Improving transport and communications also meant that this new beer was quickly available throughout Central Europe, and its style was soon widely imitated. FOOD COMPLEMENTS: Works well as an aperitif and with salads, salmon, tuna and marbled meats

Beerman6686 (3870) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2010
This poured a clear golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma was nice light floral hops and some 2 row malts. Flavor was very crisp and clean, highly carbonated flowery and lightly dank hops with a sturdy malt backbone.

BVery (5613) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Tap. Pale yellow with no head. Aroma and taste is very mild grass. Low hop profile. Just okay.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2010
Pale straw coloured pour. The nose is softly hoppy with a light herbal/grassy character. Softly sweet hay-like malts. Tastes fairly fresh. It’s okay but a bit simple.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Tap at Great Lakes Brewing in Cleveland airport. Clear gold, OK head, nice lace. Slight grassy hop aroma with faint earth note, pils malts, but faint overall. Flavor matches - not bad, but lacks "punch." But clean overall.

simonbilyk (82) - Maine, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Draft at Great Lakes. Pale straw, nearly perfectly bright. The head is dense but sparse and clean white. Aroma is subtle (hard to smell anything from the top of a pint glass in the crowded dining room). Hops are a slightly ’green’ aroma, malt is hard to pick up. Flavor is balanced slightly to hops throughout. Bitterness is low up front with clean and quick cereal (I think it’s nearly if not all malt rather then cereal grains). Hops in the mid and finish are slightly ’dull’, they’re not aggressive or crisp. Finish is floral and of medium length. Nothing sticks out or makes this especially amazing but it’s really good beer. Totally quaffable, flavor holds up to salty fries and continues to stay delicious. Yay beer!

theisti (3093) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Shaker pint draft at the GLBC bar in Concourse C of the Cleveland airport. Pour is clear golden with a white head and carbonation bubbles floating to the surface. Aroma is light toasted malt with a mild floral. Clean enough, though subdued. Taste is the nose, though the floral comes to the front, opening up into the toasty - cracker malt. The finish has a sharp mineral clove yeast thing going on. Palate is medium bodied, coats the mouth a bit. Carbonation is active, and the finish is dry and clean. Nice enough Pils.

bottle: pretty grassy, caramelly, with some hoppy spice. Some citrus and corny adjunct notes.

EinStein (52) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2010
From a bottle. Pours a nice golden color with a decent white head. Aroma is floral with a bit of citrus. Taste is also floral, finishes pretty dry with a bot of hops. Decent and a pretty good summer beer, but nothing exceptional

SrSilligoose (3120) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
Tap at glbc on a beautiful saturday morning. Nice breeze, live music, seat outside in the shade. The beer had nice enough ambiance. Aroma of floral earth and grassy creamed corn. Creamy, light dry herbal finish. Refreshing. Good. But would prefer more dryness, and more of a hop bite. Too much creamed corn. Better than average american pils fo sho, but nothing to wright home about.
