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.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Clear golden appearance with a white head. Quite rich pils malty, big grassy, floral/herbal hoppy nose. Dry, grainy pils malty, rich straw/hay, very floral, herbal flavor. Pretty clean albeit strong taste.

marcus (10668) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours clear yellow gold with a nice white head and a light floral aroma. There is a medium-bodied crystal malt flavor, slightly sweet, but turning dry and bitter. Crisp and refreshing.

Bottle. Medium golden colour with a lasting tight white head. Aroma is very hoppy, perfumey and grassy. Light biscuit malt pairs well with floral green grassy hops. Very drinkable, absolutely awesome for patio sunshine days. Not getting the imperial designation though-- is it meant to imply that they hopped the shit out of it?

Clear light golden with a sticky thin rocky head. Floral chewy doughy yeast aroma with a light peppery hoppiness, and some earthy pale grains. Great aroma for a pilsner. Flavor was nice and full bodied with a somewhat strong profile. Peppery floral hop beginning with a nice strong pale grainy malt body, with some doughy bready yeast flavor, finished dry with notes of crackers and grassy hop...really impressive to me, a guy who doesn’t like pilsners.

GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 9, 2012
355mL. Pours a clear yellow, macro lager gold. Larger, dense, pillowy white head. Thick formation, great retention, webby to soapy lacing. Nose is sweeter grain, some funky sour cherry, lemon drops, sweet juice box. Taste is very nice- small alcohol, some coconut oil, lighter mango juice box, sharper sourdough cracker. Palate is super soft, relaxed, thicker, oily. Finish is clean, sweeter, some coconut dessert. Wow.

blipp (9691) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Flowery hops, pale malty base, with a medium bitterness in the finish. Pretty good.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2012
12oz bottle, from the 2012 beer camp mix pack. Thin fizzy white head, some bubbles on the side of the glass. No lace. Clear golden color. Bigger body for a pils, but not quite an "imperial". More crisp carbonation, dry finish. Bready, good spicy and lemon-citrus hops. Some bitterness. Grainy aroma. Light spicy hop aftertaste. Seeing the celery that another rater pointed out. Enjoyable, but I’m a bit disappointed, after the raves I’ve been hearing about this.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear golden hue with a medium white head. A sweet nose of honey and grains. A light sweet flavor of grains, honey.
