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

On tap at the brewpub in Cleveland. Poured a nice gold. Extremely crisp and drinkable. I was extremely impressed with this one - I wish they’d sell bottles near here.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Pours gold with a white head. Smells perfumy and appley with some crisp pilsner malt. Tastes of pilsner malt, some floral notes, perfumy with a semi sweet finish.

Draft. Poured a clear pale color with an average frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Moderate balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

Pours pale yellow a slight white head. Smells of light cereal grians, and slight floral bouquet. Taste wonderful grain profile with just the right amount of floral notes but could have a little more hop profile. Mouthfeel is light and finish is grain and light blonde malts.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Nice clear yellow pour with a full white fluffy head. Smells are faint with citrus fruuts, hay, and some cereal grains. Tastes of tart and sweet lemons, a touch of grass, with a nice cereal grain finish and a slight hoppy bite.

Very nice pils. This draft may not be the freshest and I am picking up a little astringency, but it’s still great pils. Light and mellow hops come across in the flavor and the malt has a great candy sweetness. Very drinkable and in style.

tkrjukoff (4022) - SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2011
Apr 25, tap @ The Grest Lakes, Cleveland. Clear golden with small white head leaving lace. Classical pilsener with nice hoppy and malty touch with slight sweetness. Finishes with nice bitter aftertaste.

ryecatcher (739) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2011
Nice pale straw color, bready, malty palate, clean finish with a slight lingering bitterness. Plain as they may be, I’m the meat-and-potatoes sort and certainly no beer snob, so I readily admit my love for Pilseners -- this one is better than most.

Bottle left over from the summer. I had two of these when it was fresh, drank one, and forgot to take notes. So now in the middle of a snowstorm I’m having this one. Pours a clear golden yellow with a rather sizable white head, a bit ugly looking, not the small dense foamy bubbles I’d like to see. Sweetness right up front, a touch of honey before moving into the big crackery grain notes. Medium bodied, sweet and some more light crackery grain. A bit of lemony citrus, but very faint. A touch of sweetness on the finish with some more grain. Crisp and dry, I wonder if this would have been more refreshing in the summer when I first got it, and there wasn’t 2 feet on snow on the ground.

(12oz bottle best by 11/25/10 thanks to Exiled) clear bright yellow with a ring of white bubbles. Nose of earth, clean grain, light lemon. Taste of light earth, orange, cream, slightly bitter. Creamy body, crisp linger/bite on the palate. Good pilsner. I normally don’t like this style at all, but this isn’t bad.
