COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In The beginning, there were ales. As far as anyone knows, the first beers made were ’top-fermented’, which is longhand for ’Ale’. Sometime long before the 1860’s, beers became popular that were made in Northern Europe with a bottom fermenting yeast strain that liked the colder temperatures. Because they had to spend weeks aging before they tasted their best, they were known as ’Lager’ beer. Lager is the German word for ’storage’. Since they had to sit a while, they took up more time and space and as such were harder and more expensive to make. Where ales are meaty, lagers are sinewy. Where ales are street, lagers are ’haute couture’. Where an ale might hit you over the head and take your wallet, lagers donate to charity and adopt stray cats. While an ale might steal your car or try to date your daughter and keep her out all night for who-knows-what purpose, a well bred lager would offer to clean your house while you’re on vacation and leave fresh scones and coffee for you when you return. Now, don’t get us wrong, ales can be a lot of fun to hang out with when you’re in the right mood, and if you have bail money on you. But what’s wrong with livin’ uptown from time to time, on a nice street, where the doormen all wear those little uniforms, the air smells of flowers, and lagers rule the Earth. Cheers!

Bottle. Clear deep golden colour with a nice white head. Fresh hoppy citrus aroma with a malty sweetness. The flavour is fresh with fruity hops, some citrus, some sweet maltiness and grass. Bitterish finish.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Strong aroma for a pils, honey, spicy and floral hops with some trace amounts of citrus. Pours very light blonde. Definitely a hoppy pils, which i tend to like! Spicy hops upfront, with some citrus hop notes, with some grainy cereal. Pretty good pils!

I concur with your comments a10555. These guys rock out ever ale and lager they’ve ever brewed. This pilsner is another fine effort. Opens with noble saaz as expected. After delivering in the aroma catagory and fluffy head with fairly tight bubbles remain. Malt taste is very solid and similiar to the king (PU). Mid palate sweetness, but finishes on the dry side. These guys just get it in so many ways it’s just plains scarry. Hope they stay true to their roots of going long on all that they brew.

I’m starting to wonder if Lagunitas has ever made a bad beer? I bought this by accident, thought I was buying the Censored, but didn’t pay attention and ended up with this. This is what all that American crap aspires to be. Nice Beer.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2007
(Bottle) Pours hazy golden to orange. Medium hoppy, light malty and a bit fruity aroma with tones of hay, light grass, light citrus, tiny pepper-ish, apricot, bread and hint of caramel. Tiny oily and hints of dough. Some subtle spices. Bread like malt and a decent amount of light peppery hops in the flavour with tones of citrus, grass and hay. Light sweet and light to medium bitter. A bit dry. Light to medium body. Very fresh but a bit to citric too be a real Czech style pilsner.

Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Bottle purchased at Corral Liquors in Granite City, IL. Pours a sparkling light gold with a lot of rising bubbles and a frothy off-white head that diminishes, leaving wispy lacing on the glass; a picture perfect pilsner. The nose is bready/biscuity with a nice floral hop backing. The palate is light to medium-bodied, slick and lively, finishing very cleanly. A rounded pilsner malt front segues into a lightly bitter and clean finish with just a touch of hop bitterness lingering on the tongue. I found this to be an excellent pilsner, and if/when it becomes readily available in my area, I will purchase it frequently.
