COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This is one heck of a pilsner. Not sure why itís labeled as imperial, but nonetheless, it has all of the characteristics of a good beer. Hops, biscuit, earthiness. Super drinkability. Up there with the best Iíve tried thus far. Easily my favorite from the beer camp series.

(12oz bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of grass, herbs, citrus, and earthiness. Flavor of grain, citrus, dough, and florals with a dry finish.

zach8270 (3439) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2014
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold pour with a puffy white head. Tangy hop and citrus aroma with some dry malt underneath. Flavor is pretty standard pilsener. Light hops at the start, dry malt middle and a crisp bitter finish. Kind of uneventful.

Not my go to style but still good beer. Pour is orange in color with a medium white head and tons of bubbles in the glass. Aroma is light and boring. Easy drinker that is light and malty with a touch of hops on the finsh.

Straw yellow with a quickly fading medium white head. Aroma is grassy and Noble with sweet bready malt. Taste of grassy and noble hops and some perfumed malt. Easy drinking and boring why waste a beer camp slot on a freaking Pilsner?

Iím currently rating every SN brew Iíve ever had in one clean sweep. I grew up on the classic SN Pale having it around during high school, and since have watched SN grow into a national representation of incredible craft beer. Living 45 mins away is a treat for the random growler fill. Keep up the amazing work and thanks!

Clear gold beer with a small white head. Slightly soft palate with good fine carbonation. Light and soft creamy malt. Mild floral note and mild minerals. Nice touch of orangey hops. Finishes smooth, A very nice pilsner but the palate being so soft for the style, reduces drinkability.

J_man (699) - Tustin, California, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Clean cereal malt and grassy hop aroma from a crystal clear medium yellow/gold body with a foamy white head. The aroma follows into the taste with a lemony/citrus flavor. Good pilsner taste with a bit more malt sweetness and less crisp hop bite than usual, but very tasty nonetheless. Finishes with a lasting earthy bitterness and grain aftertaste. Probably should have rated this last year when it was fresher, but itís my last one so better late than never! Another good Beer Camp beer from SN.

SDalkoholic (2145) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle Beer Camp variety pack from BevMo: Poured a golden sparkling liquid that was crystal clear as a true pilsner should be. Aroma is mild with a grassy nose of hay and green Euro hops with a pinch of spice in the background. The drink is crisp and clean and certainly refreshing on a boiling hot summer night. Flavor is light with only a minimal amount of cracked barley malts and a minor touch some sour earthy hops. Okay pilsner but it wonít be that memorable.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 27, 2013
THOUGHTS: Not really my kind of beer, but pretty nice for a pilsner. Pretty amazing how they packed all that flavor into such a low ABV beer. I would have guessed it was much stronger by the flavor. Almost the flavor profile of a European Strong Lager. Nice balance. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light to medium yellow with an average, white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma had light light-colored bread, grain, straw and pale malt; and moderate floral, grassy and citrus hops. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet, lightly bitter and slightly sour with an average duration. There was pale malt, grain, straw, grassy hops, floral hops, citrus hops and white bread. the light to medium body was a little dry with fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.
