COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A modern take on a classic American Pilsner, brewed with Pilsner malt and a small percentage of flaked rice for a light body and malt character. Hopped exclusively with Amarillo hops from throughout the boil and then dry-hopped with Amarillo as well for a tropical, peachy aroma and medium bitterness. In 2015, this was Gibsons B Pilsner. Name change to Amarillo Pilsner in 2016.

After a few recommendations I decided to search this bad boy out. Golden with a semi-creamy white head. First, this is a glorious beer. It is soft I. All the right spots with enough bite to keep ya going. Citrus, some grass. This might seem like a stretch but minus the citrus the overall feel is similar to PU unfiltered. Great beer.

maekchu (4184) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 27, 2017
Pour from KL. Thanks! Grainy aroma, with pleasant zestiness, citrus, somewhat earthy hops, and light yeast. Pretty gold color. Flavors of grain, grass, amped-up mid-palate bitterness, creamy finish, with longgg bitter tracks. Thin-medium body. Fairly strong flavors, for a pils, but balanced overall.

KyotoLefty (10931) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 16, 2017
Tap at Alibi. Glowing, bright, deep, clear gold with a medium, thick head. Grassy nose, citrus, orange, herbs, a bit husky, corn. Fruity sweetness, malty, creamy like Sorachi even though they don't use them, peaches, crackers, biscuits. Quite bitter. Creamy-sorachi-like lemon too. Grassy, herbal bitterness. Pretty awesome. Great noble hop character coming from that Amarillo too. Really works. Second best in the world, no, but great.

reebtogi (6488) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2017
650ml bottle pours a clear golden colour with a finger of white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus with some light tropical notes and grains. Taste is a light citrus hop bitterness with a tropical and malty sweetness. Light bodied with adequate carbonation. Overall, a nicely hopped pilsner style brew, good balance and tasty.

mansquito (7277) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2017
Darby’s: pours golden with white head. Aroma is tropical fruity: amarillo shining nicely. Body is bitter, fruity and smooth. My wife drank most of this and much more quickly than ahe usually does.

lupulist (354) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 10, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Nose of crackery malts and resiny hops. Taste is crisp and piney, with a medium bitter finish. Amarillo bomb without losing the pilsner malt character. Exceptional.

Gerbeer (4216) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2016
650 ml bottle. Pours a light clear gold with moderate head. Very floral aromas with additional notes of limes and crisp grains. Flavors follow same though emphasis on bitter tropical fruit and super clean grains/malts (maybe rice?). A nice experiment - this could be a killer summer beer.

Ferris (17800) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2016
Bottle - Great citrus and spicy hop notes with a touch of grain. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light hoppy and a nice bitterness in the finish. Very nice and easy drinking, well done.

This is how I recover after doing sprints. Super light gold with a big solid bright white head. Celery aroma nailed down by Capflu is dead on + I just ate a stick in a salad an hr ago, freshly baked white bread, lemon, tropical notes, slightly dank - all goodness. Awesome flavour - super sharp and attentive, excellent balance of mouth watering lemony hops, dryness and arid grass. Has bite, slight tropical feel. Simple yet incredibly satisfying. This is one of the best beers I’ve had this year.
