Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Pilsner is a golden and crystal clear lager. The hops lend a pleasant bitterness and a lemony, peppery taste. They are added at the beginning of the brew for bitterness and the end for flavor. The subtle and lightly toasted flavor of the malts is the perfect backbone to showcase the special hop blend.

Pilsner can be traced to its namesake, the city of Plzeň (pronounced pilsen) in the western half of the Czech Republic, once part of Bohemia. In 1842, Joseph Groll developed the first light colored beer, an immediate success. Still a popular style, Pilsner influenced the American light lager we know today.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - golenrod yellow color, 1/8 " head with slow dissipation, heavy lacing in rings and along side of the glass.

S - Not much of a smell that I can distinguish.

T - dry, floral hoppy taste, medium body

M - dry feel on the tongue, little carbonation, medium body

O - All i tasted was hops, which can be a positive feature in a beer when partnered along other features. This is a quality beer and I was hoping for more flavor from this beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed at the brewpub in St Louis, reviews from notes.

A: single finger head with decent lacing on a clear bright gold body.

S: sweet corn, grain, pale malt and oak.

T: Spicey and sour pale malts, grain and minimal sweetness.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: simple but very drinkable. A few features which make this one interesting but definitely hop deficient even for the style.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

12oz bottle, pours pale straw yellow with excellent clarity and a frothy white head. Not much for lace, but that's ok. Aromas are sharp pilsner malt, grassy hop. Tastes are pilsner malt, grass, prickly hop presence, some bitterness, but nice balance. Body is thin-to-medium, crisp, finishes dry that warrants another sip. Drinks well. Overall, excellent representation of the style. One of the best offerings I've had from the Saint Louis Brewery.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pilsner glass.

Pours a light golden, translucent color. Appears to have high carbonation. Light head, less than 1/2 finger. Good lacing.

Reminds me of summer. Light aroma consisting of some toasted grains and earthy hops. Not much else otherwise.

Crisp and refreshing with some flavor. Lightly toasted biscuits up front followed by a very light bitter bite with earthy hops.

Light body and higher carbonation. Very drinkable.

A great fresh pilsner. Light and refreshing while still tasting good. This would be a great beer to put a few back while doing anything outside.
