The beer is a deep golden color and medium bodied, with a soft round malt profile and crisp and spicy hop character on the finish. This lager is brewed in the traditional Pilsner style, using authentic Pilsner malt and noble Saaz hops.

Downright Pilsner gets its carbonation completely naturally as it lagers in our fermentation tanks for six weeks. A unique twist on this beer is the dry hop addition of Saaz hops. This additional infusion of hops gives the beer an extra refreshing bite on the finish.

gripweed57 (2918) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Brassy bright gold with a firm ocky white head and clinging lace. Grainy nose. Crisp, bitter hos balanced by a light biscuit malt backbone. Spicy Saaz hop finish makes this a step above most American pilsners.

drjoeng (1418) - SINGAPORE - DEC 1, 2017
4.8%ABV. Czech Pilsner.

Tapped out light gold. 5ºSRM.

Mouthfeel is beery. Pale pilsner malt with cereal, toast and hint of oatmeal porridge. Hops are noble.

Finish is hoppy for a pils. Good

Style example.

solidfunk (9444) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 18, 2017
Easy drinking pilsner with a little crisp hop aroma. Crisp finish like pizza crust. Golden pour with ok head. Bottle at Smithsonian movie premiere.

bytemesis (9345) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 21, 2017
Tap. Pours clear pale golden with a medium creamy white head and good lacing. Aroma is light, Noble Hops, hints of grass, biscuit. Flavors is light sweet, light bitter, biscuit malts, Noble Hops, perhaps a bit below style on bitterness but really pleasant. Light body, pillowy mouthfeel.

stevoj (5710) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 14, 2017
Bottle at event. Golden clear body, small head.Grain flavors and aromas throughout. Not enough hops on the back to real click in the pils category. Close but no cigar

notalush (5935) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2016
Tap at the brewery - well-executed, hoppy, Czech-style Pils - clean, bready malt, leads to a dry, crisp finish - floral and grassy hops swell to a bitter, but not abrasive finish - lacks nuance, but a straightforward take without flaws, which is more than a lot of American Brewers can pull off.

hershiser2 (3702) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2016
Bottle from Total Wine, Gainesville. Pours clear golden with the tiniest dusting of a white head. Aroma of oyster crackers and leaves- I almost want to say a hint of smoke, but perhaps that’s coming from the fireplace. Flavor is toast crumbs, grass, leaves, light herbal notes, and bread crust. Not a huge fan of pilsners usually. I guess this isn’t bad.

malvrich (354) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2016
2 month old bottle into a tulip.
A: Tawny mostly clear gold pour with a small tight frothy head. A few big slow bubbles rising. Decent retention and spotty lace.
S: Lightly toasted white bread/dough smell. Faint spicy floral hops.
T: Very bready but with a nice strong hop kick providing bitter bite and resin without overwhelming the malt. Bold flavors (for a pils) in very nice balance.
M: Lively carbonation. Refreshing and drinkable but not too light. Dry resinous finish.
O: Very good pilsner that I will buy again when I can find it.

rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2016
Bottle at Shnoodlepip after GBBF 2016, Tuesday. Clear golden beer without rich lasting offwhite head. Malty caramel aroma, citrus, floral notes, spicy, some herbal notes. Hoppy citrus flavor, grapes, hay floral, herbal notes, slightly spicy. Quite nice.

Benzai (16768) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2016
Sampled from bottle @ ChrisO’s after GBBF Day 1. Clear pale golden color, small white head. Smell and taste some malts, moderately bitter, hayish and lightly grainy. Decent body and carbonation. Quite decent I’d say.
