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

My first sip in over 3 years of this former pub only brew is a revelation. Straw yellow capped by a white head with good retention. Bready nose with ample flowery hop aroma. Taste is much of the same with a crisp cleansing bitterness level. Quite a fantastic beer, glad glbc made this a seasonal beer they bottled and shipped. My next request: independence ale. Thank you.

Purchased at In Fine Spirits in Chicago, IL, enjoyed on a hot Wednesday night prior to doing some grilling. Appearance a pale yellow/gold with a thin white head. Aroma of sesame seeds, rice, bit of sweetness, light grass and yeast, really perplexing smell. Taste is just fantastic. It starts out with notes of sesame, grass, then becomes lightly hoppy and yeasty, and has a great crisp finish. Probably the most unique of the style that I’ve had, I don’t think I washed my glass in a sesame dish, would just be too weird of a thing to notice. Hats off to this great brewery.

Scipio (690) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Pours a clear golden with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is heavy in bread, and with with a touch of lemon. Taste is very yeasty, and while losing the lemon touches, gains some of a grassy taste. Bitter and yeasty aftertaste lasts a long time. Somewhat crisp but not very refreshing. I’m not very impressed.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Draft at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Translucent straw body, medium tight off-white head. Nose of bread dough, grassy, zesty hops, and hints of cookie and lemon. Creamy, soft body with dough, yeast, and light sweetness, complemented by grassy, herbal hops with slight metallic notes. Reminiscent of a hoppier Dortmunder Gold. Quite enjoyable.

20oz imperial pint on tap at the Cock & Bull in Hyde Park. Totally clear yellow color, good thin white head. light and nice lace. Good light crisp carbonation, dry texture. Nice noticable light hops, balances the malt lagery flavor well. Lightly bitter and savory lager taste. Really, a solid pils

poured from all 6, 12oz beers into my awaiting mouth. Look, if this is your style of beer--you are going to enjoy this beer. If is not, as in my case, you will think it is an average beer that is serviceable.

Pours a clear light yellow with a thin head. Light aroma and flavor, a little dry but tasty on a hot day.

Nice bright gold color with small white head and thin lacing. Aroma and flavor have good malts with a light sweet finish. Reminds me a bit of Dortmunder

12oz bottle. Pours a very pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is bready, biscuit, cracker with a noble hop spice and a touch of fruitiness. Flavor has more of the fruitiness along with the noble herbal spicy hops and the doughy and bread sweetness. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Nice beer

Glad this made it to Chicago! Pours a beautiful, clear, very light pale yellow with a white fizzy head. Smells wonderful and perfect for style, and fresh which is nice, floral, bit spicy, love the breadiness (one of my favorite qualities), faintly sweet, great aroma. Flavor is a bit more chalky, dry, floral, bitter, lightly metallic but rounded flavor, very drinkable and refreshing. Not as hoppy as a Avery Joes, or Victory Prima, but a lovely malt flavor with ample fresh noble hops. Lovely. Light bodied, easy drinking, standard carbonation. Not the best Pilsner but if fresh this can certainly have a spot in my stable.
