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.

Frank (3900) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2012
This only rated 3.12 as of October, 2012. This makes me suspect that either this stuff is incredibly inconsistent or people just donít like a good American craft lager. This is rather more Pilsner-like than most American brews billed as such but still is very much from the country itís brewed in. Itís a nice golden yellow w/ a scant but lasting head of fine bubbles. The nose is rather brighter than Iíd expect from a Pilsner but quite nice w/ loads of floral character. Flavor too is nice and clean w/ a firm citrus-rind bitterness in the finish. There is a touch of sweetness but fine carbonation helps keep it perfectly drinkable. There is really a lot to like here and a good deal of complexity for a lighter brew. This isnít really a Pilsner--meaning it does not taste like a European pils--but it gives you pretty much exactly what youíd want out of such a beer.

OzarkElmo (315) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - JUN 23, 2016
For me, a bit too heavy, malty for a good pilsner. To each his own, I know. Bought it to enjoy at the beach, it may be more suitable for a fall campfire.

larsga (7157) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 29, 2016
Gusher. Large white head. Clear yellow body. Gentle fruity herbal aroma with mealy floral notes. So it actually smells like a pilsner, instead of a bottom-fermented IPA. Interesting. Dryish dusty floral taste with fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish floral herbal aftertaste with grassy dusty notes. Lingering mealy, bitterish floral finish. Nice, drinkable, could perhaps use a little more character and freshness. (0.355l can, at Olympen, Oslo.)

Dacrza (800) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2016
DATE: March 31, 2016... OCCASION: playing Quirkle with Shan and Will... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. pilsner... APPEARANCE: golden, large bubbly effervescent body--clear as scotch tape... thick, Santaís beard of a head; sporadic spiderís web lacing... marshlike topography in the top of the glass... AROMA: Hallertau and Saaz, for certain... light bready presence...lilac, lavender and perfume--quite inviting.. PALATE: medium-bodied for a pilsner... mildly active... slightly beefy aftertaste... quite drinkable...TASTE: slight metallic draw early with pronounced malts... buttery and floral... some pepper adds dimension... OVERALL:a strong, likable version of the style that provides a smooth, textured experience...fourth place in the Oskar Blues mix pack is NOT a shameful showing!
