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.

This beer is just a hair better then Miller Lite. Not kidding. looks like water, has a bland dry with just a little bit of hops added. Maybe this is what they were going for. I guess for a beer to introduce non craft beer types, this would be a great start.

This is coming from someone who loves IPA's, (hophead) but I also enjoy/drink miller lite, landshark, etc. This beer is just an overpriced boring beer. If you see it, move your hand over to the miller lite box and save a few dollars.

Pils yeasts taste too much and i'm searching the "hoppy". Looks like a poor European pils. Maybe a lack of freshness.

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

Extremely mediocre. Go bye some Victory if you want a hoppy beer.

Had on tap awhile back at The Answer in RVA. Typically I'm a fan of pilsners, but this one had a very sour, black peppery spice to it that really made it rather unpleasant. Since I'm not seeing anyone else mention this in their reviews, I'm thinking I will likely try it again in the future and see if I get the same smell/taste. If I have a better experience, I will of course update my score.

On tap @ the Arrogant Butcher, Phoenix AZ.

The only hop character I could pull out of this was a Noble hop, very earthy and bitter and towards the end of the palate. Nothing special to me.
