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

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.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2011
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.

thirdeye11 (5479) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2010
(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.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of Exiled) Pours a clear pale straw body with a small white head. Aroma of grain, husk, nuts, and honey. Flavor of grain, grass, and some earthiness with a mildly bitter finish.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is pilsner malt with a lot of grassy hops. The flavor is grassy hops and lighter malts with some low bitterness. The beer is very drinkable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice American-made pilsener.

Beerman6686 (4169) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - 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.
