Could speed up oxidation in a significant way, but I would say that if other factors (mainly packaging) are so good that pumping during clarification leads to noticeable degradation in flavor ...

I would say most US pilsners donít really fit the classic Czech or German molds, even if they claim to, thatís why a broader "pilsner" style is a good call. Summerfest fits that well.
