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.

Cybercat (5053) - Georgia, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Pours clear golden with a frothy and thick but not long-lasting eggshell head. Crisp aroma presents fruity and fresh malt notes, typical but inviting. Flavor delivers crisp malt, pear, hoppy and subtle apple tones - a little bitter for a pils, and I like it! Mouthfeel offers firm, smooth body and good fizz. I’m not a big pilsner fan, but I downright like this one.
