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.

On tap at Hamiltonís. Light and awesome. Light hoppiness, with light sweetness. Bit of grassy in there. Hints of a lemony yeast. Iím suprised by the low scores.

On draft at Pizza Port Solana Beach. Poured a murky yellow golden color small head. Aroma was spicy with some hop presence. Taste was very grainy with some hops. Not too shabby.

A: The pour is a pale golden color with a very fluffy white head on the top. S: Spicy noble hops and lager yeast dominate the nose with the rest of the aroma being taken care of by a malty sweetness. T: The hops in the flavor are a mix of lightly spicy and grassy (especially on the finish), with a hint of bitterness. Again, the grain and malt sweetness make up the bulk of the sensations on the palate. M: Fairly light on the tongue with a full carbonation. D: A decent pilsner, but the hop flavors seemed a bit off to me and degrading the drinking experience.

Severed from a bottle at Philís BBQ. Appearance is pale gold with a small white head. The flavors and aromas are pilsner malts, and a very light hop tones. A nice pilsner.

Nice malty aroma. Dark yellow. Too dark for a pilsner? More like a medium lager. A little out of style.
