COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Produced especially for the OBF, Beer Camp’s golden color and medium bodied sweetness comes from pale, Europils, Munich and acidulated malts. Magnum, Crystal and Pacifica hops provide a distinctly American bittering and hop flavor profile without going over the top. The result is a refreshing, balanced, crisp pilsner, easy to drink on a hot summer festival day - or to take with you to beer camp.

Malt pilsner aroma with some hops. Clear yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Not much lacing left on the glass. Smooth pilsner, with some hop flavor and a light sweet malt taste on the palate. Sessionable beer with not much detection in alcohol. A very nice take on the pilsner...I would highly recommend to others if seeking this style.

Pours clear and golden with a white head. Aroma is intense grass and pilsner malt. Taste follows aroma with just the right amount of bitterness.

Bottle 355 ml
Aroma crisp with citrus hop , clean refreshing nose. Lacking alcohol side considering name. 7+
Appearance true golden look with large white snowy cap. Good appearance with neat lace on glass.
Flavor and Palate : Soft textured , golden malts. Slight mineral hints , slight note of alcohol. Bit dry on top end. Lacking some depth malt wise. Good not great. Not very Imperial either.

wxman (1425) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Pours a clear bright golden color with a substantial white head to top it off. Sweet flowery aroma. Clean crisp taste of sweet pale malt and a butteriness which balances really well with the mild hop bitterness and essence of grapefruit. A damned good pilsener all around!

Butters (3763) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Clear golden pour with ring of white head. Nose is sweet and bright hops. Flavor is sweet sticky hops. Not cloying, but close. Noble hops, but with a distinct citrus flare of west coast stuff too. pretty tasty, but not as ’punch you in the face’ hoppy as prima pils though.

nick76 (4221) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2012
The aroma is very hoppy and malty both of which are european in style with a hint of american hops. The appearance is golden with an average head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth but not thick. Overall quite well done.
