While the definition of pilsner is open to much debate in the beer community, it generally refers to pale, hoppy lagers, ranging from ~30 IBU and up. From Classic German Pilsners, which tend to be light-to-medium bodied, semi-sweet to off-dry, hopped with German noble hops, to New World artisan renditions in North America, New Zealand and elsewhere, which showcase modern hop varieties. A separate style category is maintained for Czech Pilsner (Světlý Ležák).

Premium members can view the top 50 in each style category. Nonpremium members will be able to see the top 25.
