COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Produced especially for the OBF, Beer Camp’s golden color and medium bodied sweetness comes from pale, Europils, Munich and acidulated malts. Magnum, Crystal and Pacifica hops provide a distinctly American bittering and hop flavor profile without going over the top. The result is a refreshing, balanced, crisp pilsner, easy to drink on a hot summer festival day - or to take with you to beer camp.

A clean, elegant pilsner with some warming alcohol, but I’m not convinced the style gains much from "imperialisation". It’s very drinkable but for mine doesn’t have enough character to warrant repeat business. Golden body with some chill haze and a stunted head. The aroma is dominated by malts - distinctively pilsner, with no warning of the increased alcoholic content. Perhaps some faint orange marmalade. Good mouthfeel: fuller-bodied than a standard pils and well carbonated. Light, grassy hop character on the tongue with some heat in the swallow. Very dry and resinous finish. As well made as anything else by Sierra Nevada but this won’t displace any of my favourites from the brewer from the beer fridge. (12fl oz bottle from Leura Cellars. 2012 edition.)

Golden color with fleeting white sheen. Spicy earthy hop, pils malt aromas. light body, soft carbonation. Nice crisp earthy hop flavors with some dusty pils maltage; clean crisp finish----good.

ganache (6037) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle. Fresh citrus in the nose, lemon on pale malt with a little dust, nice and fresh and clean. Pours clear, rich golden with a short soapy white head. Taste lightly sweet with light-medium bitterness, good balance with fresh hoppiness and a crisp, energetic lagery body, medium-full with a dose of florality along with mild alcohol seep. Refreshing and balanced.

2.9
Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Pours golden with thin white head that quickly dissipates. Light bready aroma. Decent crisp flavor for a pilsner, considering they’re definitely not my favorite variety. Decent overall, but I’ll take an IPA any day.
