COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pilsners are a tough style to brew. I refer to them as naked beers because there is nothing to hide behind – as a brewer, you’re totally exposed. Any flaws in your brewing process will be glaringly apparent – like a third nipple. The foundation of our Pils is built on a superb Pilsner Malt from Weyermann Malting Co. in Bamburg, Germany. We follow with gorgeous, spicy, lime green-colored Saaz hops from the Czech Republic and lager it with a Czech yeast strain. After 6-7 weeks of lagering and conditioning, we are gifted with a beautiful, straw-colored Pilsner that is light on the palate with a crisp, refreshing finish.
Malt Bill: Weyermann Pilsner Malt, Gambrinus Munich Malt
Hop Schedule: 100% Czech Saaz

On tap the brewery, this pours clear straw into the glass with a wispy head that leaves light ring lacing. The nose has a touch of rain. Flavors are of grain, light bitters, a little lemon. A medium light body is accompanied by a semi-active mouthfeel. Decent and drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear slightly light golden. Nose of wonderful light grassiness and doughy pils malts in a delightful legit way. Flavor is crisp and grassy with very light bitterness with a dry and delicious doughy yeast finish.

On tap at West Flanders. Pour is clear golden with a small white head and goo lacing. Grainy, grassy, straw, biscuity, doughy, hoppy, and cereal aroma. Taste is straw, grain, grassy, biscuity, doughy, and floral with a ligh bitter finish - pretty clean. Light body with high carbonation. Not bad.

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice cracker, biscuit, and bread, hints of nice grassy and slightly fruity hops, touch of spice and earthy tones as well, smells pretty nice. Taste is a nice mix of biscuit, bread, slight earthy tones and spice notes mixing with some nice grass, slight fruit, vanilla and honey, finishing pretty dry, slightly spicy.

adnielsen (9087) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Tap @ West Flanders Boulder. Pours a clear golden yellow appearance with a nice white head. Fairly spicy, herbal hoppy aroma. Nice, dry, straw pils malty flavor that dries out well and really has a nice graininess going on. Best for sure at the brewery.
