Orlando Brewing’s first lager is a big hit! European Pilz is a light-bodied yet flavorful beer created in the traditional pilsener style. Like all our beers, it is hand-crafted by brewmaster Ed Canty right here on the premises. Have a pint! It’s the best way to cool down as we enter the dog days of summer

Tap @ brewery pours light copper, white head. Aroma of floral hops. Taste, reminded me of a fresh green tea leaves, some hops and fruits and thin malty presence. Mouthfeel keeps an interesting herbal, citrus/floral profile. Sweet and actually a fine taste pilsener. Really enjoyed that one, stayed away from the nasty metalic taste of many pilsener.

Gold colour and rather flat-looking. Why? Way too much diacetyl. You can smell it a mile away. There’s nothing else. On the palate, a little bit of herbal hop shows through and it actually finishes with some dryness but it’s still pretty buttery. Ugh.

Sample at brewery taproom. Warm golden, hardly any head in the taster glass. Fruity aroma. Hops not detectable but diacetyl is, unfortunately. Flavors are nice, a good crisp herbal hop finish lingers on the back of the tongue like fresh greens or herbs leave. Nicely hopped but needs an aroma boost.

12 oz bottle, gifted by redlight, thanks man! Pours a clear gold body with a small wispy off-white head that fell to a thin film. The nose is slightly buttery with just a light hoppiness and a bit of bready malt. The flavor reveals just too much diacetyl to be enjoyable. The very light bitterness level adds to the lack of crispness as well. It’s just thin and flabby with a bit of grassy hops. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with fizzy soft carbonation. Overall, not especially pleasant to drink, thankfully I shared this bottle.

The appearance is pale gold with an average head. The aroma is has a big hop element and is somewhat malty. The taste is like the aroma with the hops hitting you first then the sweet malt yet the finish is dry. The palate is better than most for the style being smooth and full. I was really impressed with this one. I really liked it because it is actually what I want out of the style more than it is an exact replication of the ideal for for this style. Its more robust than most and it has a strong hop character.

this tastes like a straight up European pils with a touch of hay and sharp malts. quite balanced on the hops

OTH tasting 09/06/08 courtesy of the slimbeerdrinker, thanks Bethany. Pours clear gold with zero head. The aroma is sweet malts, pilsner like malts, mild floral hops and grainish malts. The taste is grainy and carries floral hops and spicy hop bitterness to go along with sweet malts. Very tasty pilz. Yum! I love the way the different malty notes blend and mix with a mild background of hops adding balance. This is one of the better brews I’ve had to date from Orlando Brewing.

On tap at brewery. Poured a dark golden color. Flavor was spicy citrus up front and even hints of grass. Bitter finish though that I did not enjoy.
