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.

Bottle from Beverages 4 Less. Clear golden color with little head. Grainy, almost fusel aroma. Sweet grainy flavors. A little bit of maltiness. Not bad, just too sweet for my liking.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 26, 2008
On tap @ Hamilton’s in San Diego. Nice 10 karat brew with a 1/2 inch dense white head. This one is refreshing...nicely carbonated and has a slightly sweet backbone. A very good pilsner that I would gladly drink again.

yespr (30688) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2008
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.

Draft. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet malty, leading to a dry straw finish.

theisti (3175) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUL 1, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2009 22 oz bottle purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, California. Pour is hazed golden yellow with a frothy and lasting 2 inch pure white head. Nice sheets of lacing. Aroma of fresh bready, toasty grainy malt with some light floral earthy hops. Taste is the bready malt, though it has some earthy, almost dirty chemical edge to it which isn’t that nice. The floral hops are present, especially in the finish which has a straw grass bitterness. Very herbal. Palate is light to medium, with a long dry, even dusty, somewhat bitter finish.
