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

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear, golden yellow with a big pillowy head. Aroma is mellow with cereal malts, dough and slight leather smell. Taste is salty, not very complex. Pretty smooth on the palate but a little dry and acidic on the finish. Just ok

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The first Pilsner in my ratings. Pours a notably pale yellow, with a nice white pillowy head. Crisp clean slightly citrusy aromas. Clean crisp on the tongue, not overly hoppy, again crisp and refreshing. This is that "serve ice-cold on a hot summer day" beer. I was pleasantly surprised.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Corn and barley malt aroma. Yellow with giant white head. Mildly sweet corn malt and moderately bitter metallic flavor. Mediocre.
