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.

Terminus (3241) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle from Beer Camp 12pk-pours lite orange crystal clear with a small sprtizy white head. nose is lots of pale grains, spicy hops sulfer, but not as punchy as i would have liked. It seems like this beer was a bit old-like SN bottled it a few months ago for release now (saw this on their facebook page) it would have been alot better if it was fresh. however, the beer here is crisp clean, well balanced with some nice hops. long finish of leafy hops and pale grains with quite a bit of dryness. WIsh the finish was a bit better though. Decent beer from the BC however, could have been better fresher.

b3shine (5427) - Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle to pint (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks decent; a transparent gold with white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet and slightly doughy and hoppy. Tastes like it smells with a crisp pilsner snap that’s pleasant on the palate. Nice.

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Poured a clear gold yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma is grass, citrus, resin, and floral (really enjoyed the smell of this). Taste is zesty, spicy, and lemony with a crisp bitterness to it.

umich03jm (1957) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Pours a very clear bright yellow color with a decent head that lingers. Aroma is biscuits, bread, grass, spruce, pine, citrus, and grain. Taste is moderate sweetness with lots of biscuit and sweet bread flavor. Finish is long and hoppy, lots of flowers, grass, and spruce. Somewhat dry but not too much. I really like this imperial pils, lots of malt flavor and hops.
