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.

brokensail (10735) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Pours a golden color with a white head. Strong biscuit aroma, a touch of cracker, and lots of bread. A floral and lightly herbal hop profile, maybe a slight spiciness to it as well. The flavor is quite heavy on the sweetness. Bread, biscuit, and lots of cracker malt favors. There’s a nice floral hoppiness, some mild citrus peel, and a solid spicy hop flavor. Quite drinkable.

Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was lasting and produced excellent lacing. Good moderate to heavy complex hop and malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer and one of the best of style I have had.

Sammy (8524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
Rising carbonation bubbles in a medium yellow body, with soapy head. Good dirty blonde yeasty aroma.Citrus taste, good IBu, smooth, dry finish. I liked it as only a minority of saaz, despite fresh assertive carbonation,

Pale straw colour. Sticky white head and lacing. The nose is sweet and fairly aromatic. A little bit of floral hoppiness and a kind of spicy hop flavour as well. There is a touch of white pepper as well. It still comes across as too sweet and under hopped. Not sure what others are tasting here, but I’m not really a fan.
