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.

Can poured into pils glass. Straw yellow with white head. Aroma is floral and light bread malt. Taste is balanced between grassy sweetness and light hop bitterness; maybe a little metalic. Medium body, some bitter aftertaste. Decent enough.

Can. Hazy yellow with a non-lasting white head. Aroma of bread, hay, citrus, apple. Taste is of citrus, apple, biscuit, Dry finish, light carbonation, watery to oily. Nice

This Pils has the feel, appearance, and overall essence of a high quality and well made beer. And it is. But the lingering sweetness of this beer is off-putting and certainly does not remind me of an appropriate example of the style. Even Czech Pils, which feature more malt sweetness than a dry German Pils, do not have this strong, out of place presence of sweetness....almost like a candy-sugar. This beer does. If they could tweak the recipe a little bit, and make it a touch more dry, it could be a really good Pils.

Standard specialty pilsener by all counts. Had as part of the canundrum variety pack. Smooth, crisp, drinkable. Better than your macro pils, otherwise not a huge standout. Good for giving to guests who donít drink real beer.

I wasnít expecting much going in, pilsners being my least favorite style. Pale yellow, white head. Grassy aroma, not much flavor. A very forgettable beer from a terrific brewery.

Nice and light. Sweet cereal and grassy aroma with just a little bitterness. Very clean finish. Compliments mild and nutty cheeses. Better with seafood.

I do enjoy pilsners, but this is definitely not my favorite. It has this skunkiness in the aroma, which is in a lot of pilsners but this skunkiness was a little too prevalent. Not much else going on in the aroma other than some mild grassiness and breadiness. The taste is mostly sweet with some mild bitterness in the finish. Itís not the most crisp pilsner Iíve had and itís a bit creamier than Iíd like a pilsner to be.

BierMeHoos (276) - Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz can. Appearance is a mostly clear yellow. Taste was very clean and smooth. It had an excellent mix of malts and hops, very well balanced. Not too bitter, not too sweet. Aroma typical pilsner.

Easily my favorite pils. We did a back to back pilsner tasting, and this one came out on top. Recommended.
