COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a premium example of the classic German Pilsner. Clean, crisp and refreshing, the Elemental Pilsner is pleasantly full-bodied. Generous use of German noble hops provides this beer with a complex hop presence with a dry and slightly bitter finish. A bright white, lacey head tops off this award-winning session beer.

I’m not a lager-lover, but this one is quite good. Lemon and herbs aroma, light flavor and very little of that nasty metallic lager aftertaste.

Très herbacé, amer, astringent avec des nuances d’ammoniac et de citron. Pas très élégant et plutôt abrasif.

Draft. Pours opaque gold with a thick, fizzy off white head. Tastes like sweet corn, straw, dry roasted malt, and bitter citrus hops. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like musky citrus, grapefruit, toasted malt, straw.

On tap at the brewery. It poured a hazy golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma was grainy, malty and sweet. The taste was of earthy hops, sweet malts and grain. Nice.

Bottle at the Stone 17th anniversary festival. Clear, golden body, small white head. A bit sweet on the nose and palate, but mostly dry. Nice carbonation. The flavor is too sweet, but pretty nice. Pale malts and grassy, fruity hops. Long sweet and malty finish with grassy hops. Pretty nice, but too sweet. 130817
