Notes/Commercial Description:
Old Pavilion Pilsner was inspired by Brewmaster Eric Marshall’s time as an apprentice brewer in Germany. Crisp and clean with a distinct and pleasurable hop flavor and aroma, Old Pavilion Pilsner is brewed in the North German “Pils” style. Brewed with American malts, a mixture of American and German hops, and fermented with a German strain of bottom-fermenting lager yeast, this beer is crafted with a deep reverence for one of the world’s most successful beer styles..

Pours to a nice rich white head that laces well and persists with no less than a 3/8" head all the way down. Aroma is spicy German noble hops and light pilsner malt. Flavor is a very good balanced combination of light pilsner malt base that is unobtrusive and good, strong noble hop acid delicious bitterness. The hop aromas, flavors and bitterness play well off each other with a crisp spicy/herbal/grassy note that is a welcome departure from piney/citrus/resiny PNW fare. Finishes dry and hoppy. Mouthfeel is very good. Overall, just about the best German Pils made in the USA.

I have had this many times, just recently on tap at Big Orange in Little Rock.

A: Pours a perfectly clear golden/yellow color. A large, pillowing white head forms with excellent retention and rings of lace.
S: Saaz hops are big. Citrus, grassy, lightly bitter. Toasted and biscuit malts. A light bitterness in the finish. Simple, really well balanced, and excellent.
T: Again, just a well balanced and simple beer that hits all the right spots. Grassy, and citrus hops up front. Bread and biscuit malts. Lingering bitterness. Really well done.
M/D: A light body that is perfectly crisp and effervescent. Incredibly dry, crisp, and clean. A real treat to drink. So enjoyable, easily all day with this.

An excellent lager that is simple but incredibly well crafted. Maybe just slightly less than Great Lakes or Live Oak. Though still one of the best lagers made in the country IMO. Highly recommended, and I wish I could get this more often.

Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.

The beer is a darker straw yellow color. A white sudsy head slowly dissipates, leaving a film and lots if thick soapy lines of lacing on the glass. The aroma is of lemongrass, faint grains, citrus notes, and a touch of hops. The beer tastes really refreshing with lemony notes coating over any hop bitterness. There's also a slight touch of grapefruit in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium to light bodied.

Overall, a refreshing pilsener for sure, an excellent touch of lemon brightness in this.

A - Poured out a hazy, golden orange color with a small, white head of bubbly foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled earthy with some caramel and toffee.

T - It tasted spicy with earthy, grassy hop bitterness. Nice caramel flavor adds some sweetness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a nice pilsener. Another solid beer from Marshall.
