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

Ah, another fine beer from Great Lakes - This one poured a bright golden hued brew with a floral aroma and tall-but-rapidly-fading white fead. Tastewise, this is a fine pilsner, and is refreshing... especially when served cold!

lukedarock (163) - Howell, Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2014
This is definitely a good choice when it comes to pilsner style, great feel like a pilsner should have, I could see this being a beer I drink multiple of in one sitting

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear light amber with a fluffy white head, clouds of lace. Taste is clear malt that grows smoothly into the palate, adding citrus hops (which goes a little against traditional floral hops in German Pilsners), but it all works very well, kind of an "American Pilsner." It is fun to drink, quite satisfying, and would be great for sessions.

radio_nowhere (816) - Maryland, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle into pilsner glass, golden yellow color with off-white head. Aroma of pale malt sweetness, citrusy/floral hops and slight pepperyness. Taste adds notes of grain, bread, grass and slight spiciness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp, dry with very minimal earthy bitter finish. Pretty good pils.
