COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is a deep golden color and medium bodied, with a soft round malt profile and crisp and spicy hop character on the finish. This lager is brewed in the traditional Pilsner style, using authentic Pilsner malt and noble Saaz hops.

Downright Pilsner gets its carbonation completely naturally as it lagers in our fermentation tanks for six weeks. A unique twist on this beer is the dry hop addition of Saaz hops. This additional infusion of hops gives the beer an extra refreshing bite on the finish.

from non existent notes - had at the taproom, after a bike ride on a warm day, it was tasty and refreshing. The tall pilsener glass was not ideal for smelling the aroma.

Really nice Pilsner malt and lager yeast aromas. Bright clear golden straw color. Crisp and clean, good carbonation. Very well executed Pilsner flavor. Very good rendition of the style.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a nice presence of malt, grass, caramel and citrus. Appearance- This beer is a murky golden yellow color with a small white head. Taste- Has a great toasted malt flavor with a bready aftertaste. Palate- A medium bodied beer with low carbonation, has a creamy to oily texture. Overall- A nice pilsner, that is well balanced.

On draft. Lots of classic pils stuff going on here. If you like your pilsners hopped up, and I do, this underperforms the US standards.

ben4321 (4752) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Location: Draft at Matchbox in Rockville, 5/23/14

Aroma: This beer has a light aroma of grassy hops, pale malts, and some bread
Appearance: Pours a clear gold color with a small head and some average lace
Flavor: The flavor is light sweet and light bitter, similar to the nose and clean flavor-wise
Palate: The body is fairly light, it has some crispness, and a clean, lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a solid pilsner, but not a top-of-style offering. It doesn’t quite hit the level of crispness that I look for in the style.

Wheaty tasting. I don’t understand why this has such low grades. Not a bad tasting beer, just a little flat bitter taste.
