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.

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

As far as pilsners go, I thought this was pretty good, definitely worth drinking (which is saying a lot for a pilsner.) Has that very Lightning-typical yeast flavor and and a very smooth finish. Good flavor and a decent overall impression.
