COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first lager produced with the 20 bbl brewhouse. This pilsner is a clear golden color. Four additions of Saaz hops lend a spicy-floral hop component.

Pours a transparent bright golden with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh saaz hops with a touch of pale maltiness. Starts with a good fullness for the style along with a nice authentic bitterness and a crisp, clean finish. A pretty well balanced and drinkable pilsner.

12 oz can. Pours a clear straw with a medium, albeit slightly thick head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, and kinda earthy. Flavor is sweet, honey, grain, with a bit of bitter hops. Carbonation is present, but not overly, with a medium palate. This beer can be as complex as you like. I found lots of layers of flavor and aroma. An interesting and very drinkable Pilsner. Not as good as AC Golden’s Barman in my opinion.

12oz. can. Crystal clear golden/yellow color with a medium sized white head that quickly dissipated. Sweet biscuit malt aroma with some grassiness and a touch of hops. Flavor was mildly sweet malts, balanced somewhat by some herbal hop bitterness. Crisp carbonation and a clean finish makes this a pretty drinkable session beer, but unremarkable.

shadey (1959) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2009
12oz can from BOTW. Pours a crystal clear yellowish gold, with a head of only spotty white froth. Aroma is sweet malts that are almost corn-ish by nature. There is also a touch of toasted bread or dough. Flavors are in line with the corn smell I picked up in the aroma. I don’t know if my senses are mis-firing or what, but why does this smell and taste like a typical American pilsener?

GMCC2181 (1539) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAR 12, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2009 Can from SL. Poured into a "footed pilsner" glass. LOL... Decent head. Clear yellow in color. Weak corn aroma. Taste is some spicy hops, sweet malt, a little bread taste. Light in texture, easy to drink, no after-taste. Overall not a bad little pilsner/lager. And only a buck fifty....

Pours pale gold into a shaker. Bright white head recedes slowly to skim surface. Slightly sour fruit aromas. Crisp with sweet biscuit malts from front to back. Slightly hop tinge to the lasting finish.

sloth (2579) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Can. Teeny white head that settles to a thin covering quickly, spotty lacing. Lightly hazy, light gold color. Nose is lightly sweet malts, lightly bready and doughy with some berryish notes, faint grass. Body is light and a little oily on the palate. Hate to say it but it,s "crisp" and spritely. Grainy malt flavors up front with a slight, very slight spicey hop backing. Dry, clean malt finish. An easy quaffer. Can procured @statelineliquors.

I wish I understood raters talking about hops in this beer. I found this to be utterly malt-driven, hugely malty, in fact, and without any noticeable hop flavors or aromas. And that was fine. Frankly, this seemed a lot more like a Dortmunder, given its weight and malt focus. Great stuff.

Oakes (13132) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 12, 2009
Dark gold colour. Malty aroma with a faintly herbal accent. Fresh bready character. Moderate bitterness. Light herbal note. An approachable quaffer, but quite well made.

(Canned on 02-27-09) This beer is pale gold in color with a nice white frothy head. The nose is subtle on the hops, but I get a whiff of the Bavarian noble types. I wish the palate was a little bit drier and slightly more bitter. To me this beer falls on the maltier side of Pils. The beer is very clean with no trace of diacetyl.
