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.

A clean, elegant pilsner with some warming alcohol, but I’m not convinced the style gains much from "imperialisation". It’s very drinkable but for mine doesn’t have enough character to warrant repeat business. Golden body with some chill haze and a stunted head. The aroma is dominated by malts - distinctively pilsner, with no warning of the increased alcoholic content. Perhaps some faint orange marmalade. Good mouthfeel: fuller-bodied than a standard pils and well carbonated. Light, grassy hop character on the tongue with some heat in the swallow. Very dry and resinous finish. As well made as anything else by Sierra Nevada but this won’t displace any of my favourites from the brewer from the beer fridge. (12fl oz bottle from Leura Cellars. 2012 edition.)

EithCubes (4831) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle. Fresh citrus in the nose, lemon on pale malt with a little dust, nice and fresh and clean. Pours clear, rich golden with a short soapy white head. Taste lightly sweet with light-medium bitterness, good balance with fresh hoppiness and a crisp, energetic lagery body, medium-full with a dose of florality along with mild alcohol seep. Refreshing and balanced.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Pours golden with thin white head that quickly dissipates. Light bready aroma. Decent crisp flavor for a pilsner, considering they’re definitely not my favorite variety. Decent overall, but I’ll take an IPA any day.

Bottle as shown. Pours a hazey yellow with a medium frothy off white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is floral hops and wheat grass. Medium mouthfeel with sweet hop and grass with nice crisp finish. Easy to drink a very good pils from Sierra Nevada.

Wittales (633) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Appearance was clear light gold with rocky whitish 1 finger head spotty at best. Aromas are pils crystal malts, floral noble style hops profile and clean yeast nose. Taste are sweet pils backbone yet subtle. Hops slightly citrus lemon, orange, and hints of dank. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with meduim body, then average length soft American hop kick finish. Good different imperial Pils.

Bottle at Exmouth Arms Finsbury. Clear gold lasting white head. Lager aroma. Thats a pretty solid lager. No puke. Wasy drinking some easy hop sting and hop flower finish. Pretty good. Thats damn good lager. Yep tasty and drinkable. Maybe just a touch too hoppy. Wld prefer the noble hops.
