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.

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle. Medium golden colour with a lasting tight white head. Aroma is very hoppy, perfumey and grassy. Light biscuit malt pairs well with floral green grassy hops. Very drinkable, absolutely awesome for patio sunshine days. Not getting the imperial designation though-- is it meant to imply that they hopped the shit out of it?

j12601 (9565) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours a fairly clear gold with a medium sized white head. Big musky grain on the nose, crisp noble hops, dusty and musky. The grain is so deep that it picks up a nutty quality. Medium bodied, grainy and smooth, toast and a light touch of warming alcohol. Long grain, a touch of lemon, faint musk and grain.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - 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 I’m not really a fan.

Bottle from bhensonb. Pours clear yellow gold with a nice white head and a light floral aroma. There is a medium-bodied crystal malt flavor, slightly sweet, but turning dry and bitter. Crisp and refreshing.

Ibrew2or3 (8207) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 16, 2012
12oz bottle pours clear deep gold with near white head of foam. The aroma offers up some cereal graininess and slivers of sugary malts and a bit of vague noble hops. The taste offers up a quick pulse of bitter floral hops and some spicy almost dank like hoppiness before fairly thick and sweet Pilsener like malts and malt graininess come to the surface. The hops pick up a layer of flavor hops into the finish. This has a great play between sweeter malt notes and more bitter hops. I didn’t expect to even like this one and it turned out to be very tasty.
