Pours a light straw color with a white meringue head. A bite of spice and flowers in the nose. Growler filled at The Birch.
Cracker flavor -- likely just straight up 100% pilsener malt in this one -- that is just a touch sweet and is super clean. No diacetyl, which is a high mark for style. A bit of body but not too much, keeping the mouthfeel relatively light. Crisp, clean, slightly grassy hop finish. Refreshing.
A good pilsener is hard to make and make right -- I know because I've tried at the homebrew level. But when successful, the pay off is well worth it. This is a great example of hitting the pils mark on all fronts; excellent representation of style. Amazing for warm weather or pairing with fleischsalat.
And I'm happy to see this is rated at least "Very Good" on BA. It is very good -- these higher scores are not just reserved for badass RISs that have been aged in bourbon barrels or DIPAs straight off the hop bine. Don't get me wrong -- a large portion of my favorite beers tend toward the heavier side. However, there is something to be said for beers that are made well regardless of style and I appreciate Birrificio Italiano's effort.

Served in a tasting glass the Firestone Walker Beer Fest. From notes. Reviewed 1 June 2013.
Honestly, I didn't care for this one bit. It's a pils. And not a very exciting one at that. My original notes have my final assessment double-underlined: "crappy lager." Perhaps that's a little harsh, but I just don't think Tipopils can hold it's weight at an American beer festival. Little flavor, grainy sweet, and it's best quality was its moderate carbonation.

Poured a clearish yellow with two finger head that died slow and left some lace on top of a pilsy malt aroma that had a wet, grassy accent to it. Pretty much a standard pils, enjoyable, clean, simple, not too much in terms of the pils malt that makes it top notch but I did detect a little more sweetness as I drank the beer and a dryer finish than your typical pils. There's nothing more to add other than this is a good beer and worth having on a hot summer day when you're not wanting a heavier/boozier beer.

On tap in a 0.4 liter footed pilsner glass.
More than a little bit cloudy. Odd for a pilsner.
Very fresh hoppy nose. Herbal, grassy, and spicy. The best our continental hops have to offer. Really nice, though the dry-hopping give it an intensity and freshness uncharacteristic of a pilsner. Even so, it's undeniably awesome.
More herbs, grass, and spice when I take a sip and a nice smooth sweet malty presence.
A little full for a pilsner, and not very clean. It's unfiltered and only lagered for 2 weeks, which is probably why. Still, a very very good beer, and one of the best pilseners you'll find just about anywhere..
