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.

12 oz can shared by csbosox. Pour is clear yellow golden, with nice settling and a smallish white head that fell quick. OK lacing. Aroma of earthy grain (not quite corn, but something like that), fresh floral bitterness and toasty bready malt. Taste is earthy, full grain maltiness, bright floral hop bitterness. Palate is medium, heavier than most pils I have had. Nice mineral element in the back. Nice one. Thanks Chris!

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - APR 30, 2009
From a 12oz Can. Mostly transparent, golden yellow colored body with a thick layer of fizzy white foam. Aromas of lemony floral hops and crackery malt. Clean. Medium light bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a rich, malty texture. Grainy malt sweetness up front on the palate. As it warms, the graininess subsides and the pils malt flavor becomes more and more bready, but it still has a bit of an unpleasant huskiness. The body is definitely full enough to be similar to a bo pils, but I’m not completely taken with the pils malt character. Mildly hoppy, with a lemony flavor and low bitterness that lingers in the finish. OK, but not my favorite pils.

bleeng (1496) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2009
Can. Clear yellow. Small head. Nose is bit malty and not quite hoppy. Malty taste, a bit sweet, nice bitter sharp ending. Drinkable and sessionable. Nice pils.

Pours a clear gold with a large frothy head, slow to dissipate. Aroma has malt, wheat, and floral notes- subtle but nice. Flavor is quite nice- again lots of wheat with a bit of bitterness and yeast. Light palate, but overall impressive for a pils.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2009
4/28/09 on draft at Malt and Vine, Redmond, Wa. The aroma as very low and bready. Appearance is as good as can be. Flavor is all pils with low sourness, low bittering and an odd starchy component. Mouthfeel is low bodied with a medium carb feel. Overall, just not a lot of character; low even for a pilsner.

marcus (6307) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 28, 2009
This clear yellow beer poured with a generous white head and a floral hop aroma. The flavor is thin, slightly carbonated and a bit peppery at the finish. This is apparently brewed for the occasional Bud drinker who shows up at the brewpub. It is refreshing and inocuous, but not up to the standards of most of the other beers from this brewer.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2009
a single can from Oak Tree. Clear golden in color with active carbonation and a lasting white head. Aroma has a moderate level of earthy saaz hops as well as grain and some touches of corn. Taste: some spicy saaz, but mostly grain, and some cooked corn, or maybe flaked maize? Light bodied, easy to drink, but the vegetal/corn component gets too much in the way for myself. This reminds me too much of a macro. I’m glad I didn’t buy a 4 pack.

LtDan (1743) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - APR 27, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear yellow (yella ?) gold with a nice looking white sudsy head. You will notice visible rising carbonation. Aroma: Biscuity malt and a small whiff of Euro hops. Taste: Biscuity malt, bitter hops, pale malts, and a bitter crisp hop finish. Mouthfeel: Very heavy for a pils. Seems very full bodied, and almost thick. Has a little bit of creaminess to it as well. Overall: A great easy going lager with no effed up aftertaste. Because it is an American pilsner in a can, your really looking for some of that sour, corny twang you would find in an American Macro beer. Nope, none of that.

I actually liked this beer. Quite sessionable. Yellow piss pour, thick head. Perfect bite, nice sweetness with hoppy finish.

YEllow body. Very light with nice carbonation. Very sweet and slear hoppy flavor. Really like it. Don’t usually like pilsners. I haven’t had anything from them I don’t like.
