COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Style: Über Pils ABV: 7% IBUs: 35 Availability: Year-round Hops: Warrior, Palisade, French Strisselspalt, Saaz, Simcoe, Cascade Malts: 2-row, Munich, Caramalt Arguably our most well-balanced beer, Small Craft Warning seems at once hop-forward and malt-forward; our brewers debate over which flavor force prevails in the beer. Small Craft exemplifies a robust pilsner—it’s crisp, well-carbonated, and slightly sweet. The beer is characterized by a firm malt backbone and a pronounced hop character. A fine aroma, from an array of hops, completes this quaffable beer.

Alcohol overshadowing the heavy pilsnerish grain and the rolling hay fields...A herbal finish is brought forth by the pleasant carbonation and some sort of equilibrium is introduced...Feels like the ingredients are still in dawn-mode and cannot aspire to full bloom yet...Thanks Guzzler67!!...

On tap at RFD Washington, D.C. Clear golden color with a white head. Hoppy/malt balance in the nose. Wheat in the flavor. Grainy finish. Overall pretty decent!

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2004
Herbal hops and cereal malt nose. Clear golden with white head that recedes to cover. Fine bubbles. Grainy flavour with alcohol very apparent and grassy hops. Fluffy, wheat-like body. Smooth and refreshing. Very pils-like but stronger. Enjoyable if not exciting. Bottle (enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere). Thanks Guzzler67.

Rastacouere (6136) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2004
Hazy golden, good looking shining color, thin bubbles cover, sticky. Aroma is very bready, grassy, fluffy. Surprisingly grainy palate, somehow hay-ish, yeasty with an alcohol trace toward the finish. Nice mouthfeel: almost still, but creamy, cask-like. Thanks Larry!

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUN 25, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2005 Pours out a clear light gold with a nice, cream white head that settled down to a light layer. Lightly scented with freshness, citrusy, fresh cut grass. Very refreshing taste,that is not obtrusive in anyway. Wheat and yeast on palate. Tasted at RFD in Washington, DC.

Kinz (3347) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Medium gold, fading head. Nice aroma full of grain and grassy hops. Nice body, bit of sweetness from malts. Touch of an anise laden medicinal character, but finishes with a burst of floral hop and hay notes. Very well done, a really good beer.

zathrus13 (1721) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Pours yellow, with aromas of citrus and flowers. Taste is also citrus and flowers, with a medium body. An interesting pilsner, bordering on an IPA. Thanks to btg for this one.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Bottle pours a slightly hazy dark straw, small but firm white head, nice lacing, with copious amounts of carbonation.   A light straw & floral scent.   Forwardly malty, with a slight alcoholic backbone.   A tad bit of cereal and grains from start to finish, with a hop kick nearing the end.   Finishes clean, with a slightly hoppy aftertaste.   Body is nice and thick.   Enjoyable, albeit interesting.   Thanks goes out to jeffc666 for the trade!

I was skeptical when I received this bonus brew from btg in a trade. Pilsner?? Not really my style. But this was quite good. The best pilsner I’ve had to date. A lot of hop in the flavor. Underlying malt and something else I can’t describe. I’d buy this if they sold it around here.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 9, 2004
This imperial pilsner pours with a clear golden body topped by a medium thick white head with decent lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet yet bitter and slightly peppery with an underlying grass note. Nice. The flavor is slightly sweet but mostly bitter with a slightly grassy hop note and a little pepper in the finish. Not as full of flavor as I expected. medium bodied, slightly warming and dry.
