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.

Simple, straight forward, crisp. Downright tasty and true to style, if you ask me

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.

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.

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.

A pretty decent pilsner, seeing as it is post holidays—though pre-New Years—I am fairly sick of all the wonderful, though heavy, holiday ales. This was one of the only options at the bottle shop I frequent that caught my eye AND was not an ale. Quite decent, hits the spot after a long work day.

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.
