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.

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of grainy pilsner malt, light DMS, citrus and lightly earthy noble hops, and a bit of lemon zest. T - Starts off with a mix of grainy pilsner malts with some lemon zest and citrus hops. Through the middle, some more noble hop flavor comes through with some bitterness and some more grainy malts. The finish is a mix of pilsner malts, noble hops, mild bitterness, and a bit of lager esters. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and grainy finish. D - Very drinkable. Great overall balance with a good malt and hop balance.

Aroma is weak malt. Appearance is a bland, see through gold. Flavor follows the nose. Weak biscuit like malt and faint hops. Not a very good pilsner.

Bright golden with a nice white head - descends into lacing throughout the glass. Big floral hop presence, slight citrus and a tad sweetness on the nose. Taste is unbelievably clean, with big floral noble hop taste - good bitterness and finishes very dry. A great, hoppy pilsner.

I liked this beer. Very much like urquell with maybe a bit of cloves. Towards the end of the bottle the hops took over and got a bit dry. 22 from whole foods ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
