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 the brewery. It poured a hazy golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma was grainy, malty and sweet. The taste was of earthy hops, sweet malts and grain. Nice.

Très herbacé, amer, astringent avec des nuances d’ammoniac et de citron. Pas très élégant et plutôt abrasif.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Courtesy The CheeseMan. Clear golden color with remnants of soapy white head. Sweet grainy aroma, light Saaz aroma, but kind of musky. Taste of wet grain, has an odd off character I can’t place. Just decent.

This beer’s dominant hop character was matched equally by powerful carbonation and a creamy sourness. Distinctive lager aroma with a bronze color.

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.

Thisis12ptfont (998) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - AUG 11, 2012
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.

snoworsummer (3333) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Draft. Pours opaque gold with a thick, fizzy off white head. Tastes like sweet corn, straw, dry roasted malt, and bitter citrus hops. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like musky citrus, grapefruit, toasted malt, straw.
