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.

dnstone (2111) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 29, 2012
One of the fw pils I can tolerate. Classic clear-golden in color with sudsy white head. Earthy-straw like aroma. Earthy hop edge on a clean pils beer.

laiti (4944) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2012
35,5 cl bottle @ lusikka, bottled 17.06.2012
Aroma is somewhat heavy with butter, honey, some grassy hops and grainy malt. Flavour is sticky with honey, grainy malt and some grassy notes. Exactly what it promises to be – a heavy pilsener.

lusikka (5338) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2012
355 ml bottle.
Pours a clear yellow colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of fresh floral hops and grains. Flavour of grainy malts, floral hops, grass, hay and juicy fruits. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a grassy bitter finish. Good, but no way an imperial pilsner.

cmonster (953) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle served in a footed pilsner glass. Pours near clear pale orange with a good sized head. Good retention and nice lacing. Light spicy hop and sweet malt undertones on the nose. Light, prickly bitter flavor. Light-med body, sticky texture, and a crisp bitter finish. This is good.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color pilsner with a nice big white head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light hoppy fruity notes with light floral malt base. Taste is also dominated by loads of some light floral malt base with some medium residual sugar notes and some light dry hoppy notes with light fruity undertones. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed though not imperial in any way.
