COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly: Indian Paintbrush Pilsner

The Monarch, eight point bull elk is the King of forest in the Tetons. Pilsners are the beers of Kings, originating in Plzen, Czech Republic. They are light colored lager beers whose flowery hop aroma is followed by a rich, malty sweetness ending with a firm bitterness. Mass produced American beers say they are of this style but have extremely lightened malt and hop characteristics. Our Monarch Pilsner is a traditional style European pilsner, brewed with 100% pilsner malt. Hopping with German lineage hops produces evident bitterness as well as a crisp finish. Monarch Pilsner is a signature beer of Cory Buenning.

Ratman197 (9946) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2005
Bottle poured a clear pale yellow with a short lived white head. Aromas of bread, grass, and a bit of corn. Palate was very thin and watery. Flavors of light bread, a hint of grassiness and a sweet finish. Might be decent after mowing the lawn on a 100 degree day,as long as it was ice cold.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 24, 2006
Bottle: Pale yellow, very slight haze, moderate white foamy head, light lacing, lighter carbonaion.   Straw or hay like nose, slight pizza dough, make that strong pizza dough.   Very slight floral aspect.   Pale malt flavor, slightly sweet, a touch floral.   Not crisp, but still fairly tasty.   Grassiness lingers.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, even a tad creamy.   This one worked for me!   Thanks Jordan!

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear golden body with a tiny white head. The aroma is very light; grassy and floral notes. The taste was full of flavor; rich wheat and grains, some citrus, a very zesty mouthfeel and a lingering kind of funky malt that many of their beers have. A nice hop presence rounds it out. Overall, a nice beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Draught at the Brewpub: Pale yellow color, thin head, decent lacing. Nose of husky hoppy 2-row. The flavor is tangy and husky, lots of crisp hops and rouch edges on the malts. Just doesn’t have the cohesion or the cleanliness of a pilsner to really work for me. Maybe they call it pilsner malt for a reason, because you’re supposed to use it to make pilsners!

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2009
GABF 2005. Pours a nice bright clear golden with good head. Aroma is doughy fresh pilsner malt- with a really good floral and herbal hop note. Bready pils, light toast, dough, slight sweetness and herbal hop bitterness and very smooth- refreshing. Good Palate Cleanser.

beerbill (3450) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Poured a clear, pale gold with a fluffy white head that lasted through most of the glass. Very light aroma of yeast and maybe a trace of the floral aroma mentioned in the description. Flavor was pretty typical for a pils. Crisp with a slightly bitter finish. Overall a good representation of the style.
