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.

From tap at Stone Bistro. Pours hazy/cloudy yellow with a white head. Mild and classic pilsner aroma. This goes into the flavour with a smoothening biscuit malt base. Light fruity and hoppy finish.

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

Bomber from South Bay Drug. Golden color with a multi-finger white head. Smells a bit grainy, and there’s not much bitter. Medium body with creamy, but sharp, carbonation. It’s a bit bready or yeasty. There’s a nice sensation in the mouth, but it is rather flavorless, except for the b/y. Finally in the finish there is the slightest suspicion of hop bitter. That said it drinks fairly well, but it just isn’t right as styled: "While the definition of “pilsner” is open to much debate in beer community, it generally refers to pale, hoppy lagers, ranging from 28IBUs and up. Pilsners that do not meet the specific characteristics of a German or Bohemian pils will be given this generic classification" Agreed it doesn’t meet the Czech or German style, but does it deserve the generic? Is it weak malt liquor or good pale lager? For me it didn’t improve with time and continued consumption.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
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.
