12 oz. can poured into pilsener
(courtesy of @TongoRad)

L: yellow with slight twinge of gold, about 70% clear and topped by a huge fluffy head of white foam that's over an inch and a half tall; the head alone is artwork — the head percolates into a dense stack of tiny bubbles packed tightly, then over time the bubbles seem to grow and become bigger and looser as the head upacks; it takes the head a few minutes to dissipate, and even then it never really does as the activity in the glass maintains a full collar and skin

S: sweet peach, dusty yeast, tarter lemon/lime, earthy lemon/lime peel; the bread malt aroma gives it a sweet base with the other notes playing off of it

T: bitter ... the hops attack right away and they're very earthy at first, then they start tasting "green" ... lemon, cilantro, maybe some lime or lime peel; the malt that shines in the nose is subdued in the flavor, adding only a light sweetness that offers some balance with the bitter hops, but it's still very hop forward

F: fantastic, light, fluffy yet crisp

O: among the hoppier pils I've tried, yet it's not in any way tricked up ... everything here stays within the lines of what you expect from the style -- the hops are simply no joke is all, and the bread malt, while adding quite a bit of fruity sweetness in the nose, has barely a supporting role in the flavor; if this beer lived in my distribution area, it would definitely jump in my rotation of favorite pilseners, especially when I'd be in the mood for a big green hop bite

Can at Metzger Bar and Butchery, Richmond, VA

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a narrow collar of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bready and grainy malts are present in the nose along with hints of grassy hops.
T: The taste has flavors of grainy malts and grassy hops as well ash hints of bready malts. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This pilsener has a nice balance between the malts and hops.

Serving type: can

Double pour was necessary to finish the beer. Hazy, golden color. A few broad streaks for lace.

Leans sweet to the nose. Mild hop. Perhaps closer to a Helles than a Pilsner in terms of smell.

The flavor is more like a Pilsner with the delicate hop showing up more pronounced. I still get some sweeter pale malt up front which gives this beer a fuller body than most Pils. Typical (meaning higher) carbonation for the style. Overall, a decent entry.

Draft at Churchkey in D.C.

Hazy yellow body with a quarter inch of white head. Ample steady effervescence. Loads of bitter hops in both the scent and flavor. Delicious with aggressive bitterness.

From 32GP. In Teku glass. Afte dinner. Very grassy and herbal, more malty than usual in the style, with a bigger body. I have the feeling than drinking more units will make it much more appreciable for me

Second time I have Had Tipo Pils. First was from a bottle in Italy and I was not in the mood to enjoy, wanting something more refreshing.
This time it was on tap at Beer Temple and I could appreciate how dry this lager really is.
This beer is on the "1001 Beers To Drink Before You Die" but arguably should be replaced on the list.

On tap at the Appalachian Vintners.
Lacks clarity but otherwise a fine looking pils, especially the white head.
Hints of honey and faint spices in the nose.
Very light body would be watery if not for the medium+ carbonation.
Mild flavor, to the point of being a light pils. No major flaws but seems distinctly less than world class.

Pours a clear, yellow colour. Smelled of faint earthy hops, slight whiff of malts. It tasted well-carbonated, crisp and clean. Slight presence of earthy hops, a bit of clean malt; light to medium-bodied, with a clean finish.
