COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Old Pavilion Pilsner was inspired by Brewmaster Eric Marshall’s time as an apprentice brewer in Germany. Crisp and clean with a distinct and pleasurable hop flavor and aroma, Old Pavilion Pilsner is brewed in the North German “Pils” style. Brewed with American malts, a mixture of American and German hops, and fermented with a German strain of bottom-fermenting lager yeast, this beer is crafted with a deep reverence for one of the world’s most successful beer styles..

Bottle, thanks to soonerchamps. Hazy straw colored pour with a thin white head. Quite a bit of sticky lacing. Aroma is grassy, herbal, and bready; no surprises. Taste is crisp and refreshing with more florals and less herbals. Solid bready malt backbone. Good.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Pours clear gold with white fizzy head. Aroma of grain and grass. Flavor much the same, nice pilsner malt back bone. Light body, high carbonation. Overall, not bad! Just didn’t care for the finish.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 18, 2013
A - Pours a cloudy golden straw. 2 finger bone-white head. S - Grassy hops, sweet grain, subtle yeast, lemon citrus, lots of fresh spice, a touch of honey. Bread comes out as it warms. T - Crisp bitterness from the hops. Herbal and spicy. Some bready grain notes with a touch of sweetness. The underling yeast has a sense of coriander. Citrus notes provide a very clean finish. Citrus really comes out in the aftertaste. A very refreshing pilsner. Crisp and clean. Excellent session for early season football. Serving type: bottle 09-11-2010

kevinator (873) - The Colony, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2012
For a by-the-books type of beer, it is a good effort. Straw colored appearance with a light head. Not a very strong aroma other than mild malt and yeast. This was easy to drink with a crisp and clean palate with above average carbonation. The hops presence was higher than expected. This bitterness lingered a bit. Good choice for a style that is typically not very exciting.

On tap at Vino’s in Little Rock, AR. Pours a hazed golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened, grainy pils malts with a decent grassy hopping. A touch of lemon zest and spice from the hops as well. Flavor is better. Lightly sweetened pils malts with some graininess and a nice, lightly spiced grassy hopping. Light lemon citrus notes towards the end as this finishes somewhat crisp and lightly bitter with some spiciness from the hops. Medium length aftertaste following a light-medium body and a moderate carbonation. Could be a bit more crisp to make this really refreshing. Overall, not a bad pils. Nice pils malt sweetness and balancing spicy, lemon-citrus hopping. Nothing special, but enjoyable.

Pours crystal clear gold with white head. Aroma of grass, dough and earthy notes. Tastes is hoppier than other pilsners I have had but really good.

notalush (4795) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle purchased in Kansas - pour is dark gold with a slight haze (quite a bit of sediment in the bottle) - somewhat lively carbonation makes a moderately thick lace - nose is a little sweet, but it is a clean sweetness that compliments the bright, zesty, grassy and lightly citric character of the hops employed - soft carbonation in the mouth - flavor is much less sweet than the nose suggests - starts off with lightly crackery malts, which then make way for quite a dry middle that is full of peppery, grassy hops and moderate mineral note that all works well in the crisp finish - lingering bitterness and dry mineral on the tongue - not perfect, and just slightly off style, but quite a nice pils.
