COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

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.

on tap-pours a retaining thin off white head that laces and yellow/gold color. Aroma is mild grain, lemon. Taste is light/medium malt-caramel, secondary spicy hops (Hersbruck?). Medium body. Mild carbonation.

bhensonb (10904) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Bottle from Liz. Pours pale gold with a large foamy white head. Aroma is moderately bready and somewhat grassy. Med body. Flavor is bready with a little grassy hop. It’s not coming across as crisp and clean as Urquell, but it’s drinkable. Probably good for washing down food.

Tmoney99 (10545) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Draft sample at brewhouse. Poured a clear straw color with a moderate fizzy white head that mostly lasted and had good lacing. Moderate hoppy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium bitter hoppy flavor with a medium bittersweet dry finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

hopscotch (9041) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Draft... Lightly-hazed yellow lager with a small, wispy, white head... diminishes to an ultra-small, creamy head. Excellent retention. The aroma is of citrus, white bread and toffee with an earthy undertone. Sweet, pilsner malt flavor is challenged by, but not equaled by, earthy Saaz hops. Medium-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Metallic bitterness lingers on the back of my palate for minutes, not seconds, after each sip.

hopdog (8848) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2010
12oz bottle. Poured a medium golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas and tastes of grass, grains, and toast. Both on the softer side.

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2008
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.

DuffMan (6641) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle. Straw gold colour, nice carbo, foamy lacy white head. Crisp cereal grains and leafy hop flavours expected of a true pilsener, finishes clean and bitter, like a northern German pils. Really well done actually, and of the seven OBC brews I tried, this was the best.

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2009
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.
