COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a premium example of the classic German Pilsner. Clean, crisp and refreshing, the Elemental Pilsner is pleasantly full-bodied. Generous use of German noble hops provides this beer with a complex hop presence with a dry and slightly bitter finish. A bright white, lacey head tops off this award-winning session beer.

Bottle: A turbo charged pilsner! Crisp, clean, hoppy, grassy, herbal, palate cleansing, a delight. Food Pairing: Weisswurst mit Pretzel.

Courtesy The CheeseMan. Clear golden color with remnants of soapy white head. Sweet grainy aroma, light Saaz aroma, but kind of musky. Taste of wet grain, has an odd off character I canít place. Just decent.

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of grainy pilsner malt, light DMS, citrus and lightly earthy noble hops, and a bit of lemon zest. T - Starts off with a mix of grainy pilsner malts with some lemon zest and citrus hops. Through the middle, some more noble hop flavor comes through with some bitterness and some more grainy malts. The finish is a mix of pilsner malts, noble hops, mild bitterness, and a bit of lager esters. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and grainy finish. D - Very drinkable. Great overall balance with a good malt and hop balance.

Severed from a bottle at Philís BBQ. Appearance is pale gold with a small white head. The flavors and aromas are pilsner malts, and a very light hop tones. A nice pilsner.

22oz bomber from SBD. Pours hazy golden yellow with minimal white head, tiny bit of lace. Smells grainy and malty and sweet. Tastes of very mellow, earthy hops up front and then sweet malts toward the finish, grain flavors as well. Medium body, nice active, yet smooth carbonation. If your in the mood for a pilsner, this is a quality one.

On tap at Hamiltonís. Light and awesome. Light hoppiness, with light sweetness. Bit of grassy in there. Hints of a lemony yeast. Iím suprised by the low scores.

On draft at Pizza Port Solana Beach. Poured a murky yellow golden color small head. Aroma was spicy with some hop presence. Taste was very grainy with some hops. Not too shabby.

Thisis12ptfont (1172) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Aroma is weak malt. Appearance is a bland, see through gold. Flavor follows the nose. Weak biscuit like malt and faint hops. Not a very good pilsner.
