pFriem Pilsner is as refreshing and flavorful as its European cousin--and with aromas of fresh flowers and honey, we’ve managed to fit the Pacific Northwest into each bottle.

ClarkVV (5868) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Draught at Matt’s in the Market, 11/4/15.
Lovely, bright, white grape juice color with a hint of copper. Good carbonation coursing upwards creating a white head with moderate retention.
Delicate floral hops, adding all sorts of aromatics, with light, fresh herbal accents. Just a touch of baked bread is noted in the aroma, with honey and light biscuit being prominent. Pretty much exactly what I’m looking for in a pilsner. Clean, with no flaw and not Americanized.
The flavor outdoes the aroma by a good margin, which is impressive. Fantastically tart white grape juice notes (a play between hop and the very lightly toasted grain) give way to a delicate honey sweetness that is in turn whisked away by tight carbonation as soft, floral hops linger pleasantly on the finish. Wonderfully attenuated and incredibly drinkable/refreshing. I found Pfriem to be much more successful on draught than in the bottle, which seems to be echoed by other ratings here. Didn’t find any soapiness that some mentioned, nor did I find there to be any excess of hop resin.

Ernest (7376) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, husks), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with light notes of metal, lime, and soap. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. This one’s a bit metallic and soapy and husky but otherwise has a nice herbal hop bouquet and balance.

Our 3rd beer of the night. After drinking this we decided to look up the definition to learn Pilsners are a type of lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
