Style: American Pale Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Pleasantly crisp, perfectly clean and profoundly crushable, PC Pils is our take on the classic Pilsner style. While Noble hops have been the preferred choice of Pilsner brewers around the world, we went with some of our favorite American varieties. Piney Chinook, pleasantly citrus Cascade and punchy Centennial make this an easy-drinker with floral hop characteristics. Pretty cool, if you ask us.

Poured from can into tulip, good 3 finger cream colored soapy head, good retention and lacing. Clear pale yellow in the glass, good looking beer. Smells floral, lemon and some mild citrus. Taste is initially citrus, some slight pine, lemon zest and clean cracker malt. Finish is crisp and clean with a mild lemon aftertaste. Good refreshing beer and a nice change of pace. This served well on the beach.

Pils..... Not my normal Style, but thought I would branch out on a steamy summer evening... pretty darn good and beats the backside out of "The High Life" which is what I usually think of what I think of Pilsner.

The aroma is pine,grapefruit,citrus, and a bit of hay funk. Taste follows the nose with bitter pine being very forward. It was okay but didn't deliver what I have grown accustomed to flavor wise for a pilsner

Pale golden color. Aroma has floral hops, nice and clean on the nose. Taste is also quite clean with floral hop notes, light malt in the background and an appropriate amount of bitterness on the finish.

Enjoyed this nice hoppy lager on tap at Founders. Light golden color, small amount of head with very minimal lacing. Smells nice and floral.
Tastes like floral hops, light malt, lemon rind. Fairly thin mouthfeel with decent carbonation throughout. A very nice mild hoppy change from the typical lager.
