BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Firestone Walker Brewing Co.
California, United States

Style: German Pilsner

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Pivo Pils is a classically rendered pilsner with a West Coast dry-­‐hopping twist, showcasing stylistic influences from Germany, Italy and the Czech Republic. Lighter beer styles like pilsner have been hijacked by industrial lager beer in the United States, and it’s time for craft brewers to take it back. Pivo Pils offers impeccable balance with floral aromatics, spicy herbal nuances, and bergamot zest and lemongrass notes from dry hopping with German Saphir hops.

Great pilsner! First beer after my surgery, hence my absence in terms of drinking. Great golden color, incredibly crisp and clean. A nice bright finish, makes you want to dive right back in! Feels just like an easy drinking refreshing beer!

Finally a dry, non-hoppy appropriate pilsner that burns your throat with hints of crisp dry herbs.... a true pilsner at the correct ABV...well done....in a world gone IPA mad....

Pico is a great beer. I live a good pilsner and in my eyes the base beer would be better with less hops as a more traditional pilsner, but a great hoppy and crisp summer beer.

Pours a slightly foggy straw with a white finger of foam. Aroma is nutty, biscuity, and lightly bready. There is a hint of herbal hops. Flavor profile is nut and bread from the malts with a faint herbal hop dose. Mouth feel is crisp with a medium-thin consistency. It's refreshing. Overall, a refreshing beer with good malt presence and light hops to smooth it out.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz can.

If you enjoy a thick, sweet pilsner, you'll like Pivo.

L: brilliant gold permeated by streams of rapidly rising bubbles under a 1" white cap with fair retention

S: flowers, citrus, spice and resiny evergreen

T: Medium spicy, citrusy hops with some light fruit notes lead the flavors followed by low to medium low malt

F: creamy with a light to medium light body and medium high carbonation with a light carbonic bite

O: has a lot of character for a light beer and nicely showcases the hop flavors and bitterness

Poured from 12oz can into glass. Stamped on can bottom is 'CANNED ON 04/19/18 12:10'.
Clear, pale gold colored body. One finger of white colored head which reduces to thin cap and ring. Leaves behind some spots of lacing.
Bready aroma with bright, citrus hops. A little yeast comes through.
Taste is heavy with bright, citrus hops, which is joined by floral hops at the end. Bready malt is there in the background. A little spicy. Flavorful tailing off of the after taste.
Medium mouth feel. Good carbonation. Crisp.
Certainly a hoppy pilsner, but has the main attributes of the style. Very drinkable, and would be a good choice for a session.

Good looking. Clear, gold and white top. Soft aroma with soft malt (not grainy) a little yeast and very soft hops.
Flavor is hop dominant. Malt is background. Herbal spice hop flavor and bitterness is rather subdued compared to many. It's there but it blends with the hop flavors quite nicely. Nice carbonic bite lending a crispness.
Clean, crisp, good hops. NIce.
