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.

ContemplateBeer (1634) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 9, 2013
On tap at Open City, DC. Aroma of hay, cracker, light noble hops. Appearance is royal gold with a sticky, 1/3 inch white head, spot-on carbonation. Flavor matches the nose; crackery dry, light/moderate noble hops and a dry, slightly fruity finish. Palate is medium, bubbly and very soft. Very well done.

Foxbush (1408) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2013
12 oz Bottle. The Pilsener poured a clear polished gold with a small head. The nose detected some floral hops and sweet malt. The taste was floral hops with a spicy hop zest, and sweet malt. The pilsener had a medium body with above average carbonation. The finish is the pilsener’s best feature. There is spicy hops that linger in the roof of your mouth. The finish makes this one of the best pilsener I have had.

Velkyal (302) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy gold, topped with an inch of firm white foam. Aromas of fresh bread, lemograss and hay abound - very promising start. Taste is classic pilsner malt, grainy, lightly toasty, with a solid hop bite to give perfect pilsner balance. Wonderful drinkability, and definitely a class rendition of the style.
