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

12 oz. bottle. Bright straw golden pour with a medium white head. Aroma of herbal, noble hops and fresh baked bread. Flavor is crisp, clean, hoppy, with some mild sweet malt presence. Medium bodied with above average carbonation. Finishes with a bitter hop note. Nice, crisp pils.

On tap at the brewpub (God how I miss this place no longer living in Cleveland). The first attempt at a Pilsner that I tried from Great Lakes was the Prohibition Pils, and that one didn’t do it for me; that beer was too thick and the hops were too weak. With this beer, I think they got it right (at least the way I like it). Light body, crisp, clean hops. Hops are slightly floral, beer is light in color and body but grainy malt is strongly evident in the aroma. Very enjoyable and I’d gladly drink again. One of the better Pilsners I’ve tasted to come out of an American brewery.

Bottle. Light yellow. A nice sweet drinkable pils with high carb that doesn't get in the way. Some floral hops stand out. Good stuff.

On draft. Pale golden color with one finger head. Malty and grassy aroma. Dry finish and crisp. Ends with a sweet maltiness. Good pils.

Drank from bottle. Light flavor and crispily carbonated. Good for the style, which isn’t my favorite.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Pale gold color with a ton of white foam. Light floral hop aroma with some light malts. Flavor is very light as well. Some hop bitterness and that’s about it. Way over carbonated.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Rather dry with a floral finish. Not a great selection from GLBC.

12 ounce bottle. Pale yellow gold color. Large foamy white head. Fragrant, grainy malt nose. Crisp sweet malt flavor. Citrus hops come into play. A nice balance of malt and hops. Complex citrus hops in finish. Very tasty and refreshing. Nicely done.

Not sure what some of you are balking at. Typical Czech pils. Tasty with the noble hops. Not great but no Czech pils is really good. Enjoy it for what it is. Yes 9.99 for a six is high.
