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.

It is an imperial pilsener... Donít know why they feel the urge to brew these but the imperialization ruins what the style has going for it. This is one fo the better done ones though.

Dogbrick (10024) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Sample at the DBLDP on 09/02/2012: Clear bright yellow pour with a medium thin white head that dissipates quickly to a wispy film. Spotty lacing. The aroma is lightly hopped with some citrus and herbal notes. Light to medium body with a grassy hops character and notes of bready malt and citrus. The finish is moderately bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

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,

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - SEP 9, 2012
355mL. Pours a clear yellow, macro lager gold. Larger, dense, pillowy white head. Thick formation, great retention, webby to soapy lacing. Nose is sweeter grain, some funky sour cherry, lemon drops, sweet juice box. Taste is very nice- small alcohol, some coconut oil, lighter mango juice box, sharper sourdough cracker. Palate is super soft, relaxed, thicker, oily. Finish is clean, sweeter, some coconut dessert. Wow.

DrSilverworm (9107) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2012
12oz bottle, from the 2012 beer camp mix pack. Thin fizzy white head, some bubbles on the side of the glass. No lace. Clear golden color. Bigger body for a pils, but not quite an "imperial". More crisp carbonation, dry finish. Bready, good spicy and lemon-citrus hops. Some bitterness. Grainy aroma. Light spicy hop aftertaste. Seeing the celery that another rater pointed out. Enjoyable, but Iím a bit disappointed, after the raves Iíve been hearing about this.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
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 Iím not really a fan.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Clear light golden pour with a small white head. Bready, earthy, grassy, clean and easy drinking. Very good pils.
