Notes: A Rev Pils is a traditional German pilsner that we've brewed with a slightly American approach. All-German malts join in with our Bavarian lager yeast for a crisp and exceptionally clean pilsner.

Canned 4/19/22; drank 5/31/22 @ the Yarchives.

See-through dull yellow appearance.

A violent pour yielded a huge, noisy eggshell head; decent lace.

Fresh soap, mild lemon, corn & dry wheat notes in the nose.

Medium thin mouthfeel.

Soap, mild corn & dry wheat flavors. A crisp, decent pilsner.

Not sure if I would call this a German style, seems to be more in line with the Czech style. Either way, it's crisp and follows all of the guide lines a good pilsner has.

Pours a slightly hazy, straw gold with a one finger, off white head. Plenty of carbonation.
Smells of lemongrass, yeast, malt and slight hop.
A very light tasting Pilsner and watch nothing really stands out. Slight hop, yeast and brattiness on the backend.
Crisp and refreshing. Good enough for a Pilsner.

Had on tap. Clear golden body with white lacing on the surface. Grassy, slightly grainy, and plenty of pilsner malt in the smell, clearly german by the aroma. Taste has a touch of lemon in it with everything from the smell, sneaky yeasty and somewhat cereal like in the finish. Easy drinking, but no pushover, good thickness for style but ending could be a little cleaner.

Nice toasty malt with a hint of minty hops on the nose that follows through into the flavor. Finishes almost bone dry with a mild bitterness in the very end. A nice example of the style.

Look: Pours a clear royal golden color as you would expect, but a strong and slightly foamy head.
Aroma: Aroma of floral hops. There's juniper, pine, dried flower, with some citrus bloom.
Taste: Initially hits you with the noble hop flavors. Moderately bitter and finishes with a honey-flavored pilsner malt finish. A slight bitter astringency lingers on the tongue.
Feel: Medium bodied. Respectable carbonation. Drinks very balanced between the hop bitterness and malted body. Just enough malts to satisfy before the bitter hop astringency is left on the tongue.

Overall: A well made German pilsner. The right balance of noble German hops and pilsner malts that is quite refreshing. Great flavor. Even better body and finish. Why would I expect anything less from Revolution.

11/19/18 (Chicago): $6.63 1/2 liter draft pour into large Pilsner glass. Clear blond pour, light white puffy head, leaves nice lacing. Strong malt and bread aroma, strong, pleasant and very nice. Light crisp clean taste and mouth feel, peppery bread the predominant taste, malts used were very good. Clean smooth refreshing drinking. Very good Pilsner, I liked this offering and I'm glad I paired it with a meal, went very well.
