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.

Tap at Meridian Pint for $2 on their 2nd anniversary. Pours light cloudy token with small white foam. Nose is sweet apple juice and sugar. Taste is quite hoppy, resinous, oily, sugary. Fairly rich. Some soapy hop bitterness and heavy floral pollen and lavender. Palate is rich, biscuity. Pretty good stuff. Palate is a bit powdery and apple skin astringent. Not too bad.

12oz bottle pours a lightly hazy, deep gold with some creamy white head. Nose of grass, lemon, malty, yeast, hay, a little metallic. Flavor is sweet, malty, hay, lemon, grass, light honey. Medium bodied, crisp finish. Exactly what it says... a down right, well done pilsner.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2012 Draft at NOVA BrewFest. Poured a mostly clear amber color with a white head. Aroma was grassy notes, touch of herbal hop notes, touch of bread. Flavor was mostly crisp malts, touch of grass, notes of citrus, bready malts. I think they may have nailed it, but pilsener is certainly not my favorite style, so this one is a bit tough for me to rate.
