Produced especially for the OBF, Beer Campís 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.

Nice pour, great foam, nice golden color, taste is good, but really tastes more like a pils to me and is missing the imperial aspect. I was expecting something a little more strong, a little more flavorful. Ranking as a pils alone its a little above average, crisp, clean and refreshing.

I have a hard time with this one. I really enjoyed it. Looks nice with a solid mouthfeel and fairly complex hopping ... but itís not really a pilsner if you ask me. Which means I like it ... because I donít like pilsners.

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.

Pilsners you usually tasty and refreshing though not particularly exciting... This one is refreshing to be sure but is also anything but boring... The subitle maltiness you would usually expect but the hop bite is just a bit more... enough more to make this beer very intriguing and quite tasty!

Pours pale and clear like a pilsener. Aroma is fresh and grassy. Flavour is full, slightly sweet and crisp. Great beer for a lager

Hot hot day here in Oz, unfortunately chose the wrong beer today. Not a great beer, has some good flavours but not enough.

This style is not for everyone but I love it. It is very hopforward, but in a grassy herbal kind of way that is definitely not an IPA. Really crisp and refreshing but with lots of flavor too.

Bottle. Aroma of hops, malts, zest and a slightly bread bit (not so much yeast tho). Tasted like a crisp Pils but with some floral hoppiness to it. Kinda tastes like cleanly cut grass smells and again, zest, hops and a slight bit of malts. Really, it just tastes crisp, clean, and evokes a bit of a summer ale taste. Comes across as nice and balanced, clean and refreshing.grassy and fruity bitterness.. tasty and very drinkable. Would def. drink again! 5.6% abv.

Bottled. Poured clear, brilliant golden with a nice white head. The aroma picked up crusty bread and mandarin orange, with accents of fresh grassy and herbal hops. The flavor found more bready malts at the core, with crisp lemon zest, fruity, and floral accents with residual grassy and fruity bitterness: tasty and very drinkable. Light-bodied, but with enough carbonation to keep it engaged. tangy, crisp, and well-balanced. Very good.

wasnít expecting to like this one so much. and when i saw 5.6 abv for an "imperial" beer it left me feeling "wtf". but let me assure you, this is one of the best "strong lager" type beers iíve ever been lucky enough to try. super smooth body, floral and earthy without any metallic off flavors or extreme grassiness. extremely well balanced. why canít they replace summerfest with this??
