COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Orlando Brewingís 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! Itís the best way to cool down as we enter the dog days of summer

PorterPounder (5470) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Orlando, Fl - Whole Foods - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium golden with a crisp snow white head. Aroma has a hint of butterscotch - slightly phenolic. Flavor has some bready notes, some cereal like grainy notes and a hint of butterscotch. Mouthfeel is crisp and thick enough.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2009
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.

decaturstevo (4996) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 16, 2008
At OB. Gold with hints of red. Nose of hops and malt. A hoppy malty beer that is semi sweet. Solid palate and good carbonation. Very soldi beer with a very good hop profile that leads to a very good bitter finish.

kramer (4903) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2009
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. Itís 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.

TomDecapolis (4473) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 14, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Pours a translucent golden with a large fog white head that laced. Aroma of mixed citrus, cereal grains, lots of nice floral/spicy hop notes and very fruity. Flavor of hops, cereal grains, good bit of hop bitterness, some grapefruity character. A nice hoppy pilsner.

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.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2008
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear, medium gold body with a wispy, thin, pure white film. A thin, foamy edge leaves behind minimal amounts of spotty lacing. The aroma shows very light caramel malts, cream, bready yeast, a drop of lemon, and a surprising amount of floral hops. The flavor started out sweet and biscuity, with a good amount of lemon chiffon character and a nice dose of floral, slightly peppery hops. Medium-light bodied and smooth, this would be a nice session brew on a hot day. Iím starting to think that Orlando Brewing does lagers better than it does ales, as this one and the Doppelbock were the most impressive brews within their styles.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear golden with a tiny white head. Cereal malt aroma with some grassy hops. Light, crisp pils flavor with grassy hops. Thin
