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.

Pours a pure yellow color with a happy corn aroma. Taste is grassy with a dry bad bitter finish. A crisp beer that left a Earthy lingering aftertaste that stayed on the palate. . This beer was dry, bitter and crisp, with a decent complexity.

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.

22oz bomber from SBD. Pours hazy golden yellow with minimal white head, tiny bit of lace. Smells grainy and malty and sweet. Tastes of very mellow, earthy hops up front and then sweet malts toward the finish, grain flavors as well. Medium body, nice active, yet smooth carbonation. If your in the mood for a pilsner, this is a quality one.

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.

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.
