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

Pretty OK beer. I am not a big pilsner fan but this was refreshing on a hot summer day.

Pours a clear yellow body with no head. Flavor is very nutty with grass and a mild, honey-like sweetness.

b3shine (5488) - Indiana, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Draft to pint. Looks okay; a translucent gold with low carbonation and thin lacing. Smells alright; bitter and a little slinky. Tastes like it smells with a snappy pils mouthfeel. Not a bad pils!

jstraw (1922) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Draft at Jerry’s. Yellow-gold with big, foamy, white head / Light nose of lemon, grain, straw, and resin / Light to medium body, some sweetness but mostly dry, fat with low carbonation, good balance and lightly bitter finish / Mellow flavors of lemon, straw, and honey / Lacking the expected crispness, this is still a very nice, easy drinking pils.

JStax (3011) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Poured on draft. Pale yellow with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is fairly nondescript, but what is there is on the verge of skunky with hints ad bread, hay, grass, and some leaves. Taste is lightly bitter with some bready, nutty notes coming through in the finish.

mikemccarthy (91) - Huntington, West Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Pours a clear gold with a thin, white head that fades quickly. Decent lacing. Subtle atone with slight but not overpowering straw notes. Effervescent mouthfeel, but not as thin as some pilsners. Taste is light and slightly sweet, but without the sour finish of some. Good representative of the style, but not a style I prefer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear, light straw yellow with a tightly carbonated white head. My weak nose can only pick up a trace of pale malt and peppery hops. Clean flavors of straw, grits, and a hint of lemon peel. Refreshing.
