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 (7032) - 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?

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

DrSilverworm (6979) - 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 I’m a bit disappointed, after the raves I’ve been hearing about this.

j12601 (6863) - 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.

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.

lusikka (6559) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2012

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.
