Style: Czech Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Pilsner is a golden and crystal clear lager. The hops lend a pleasant bitterness and a lemony, peppery taste. They are added at the beginning of the brew for bitterness and the end for flavor. The subtle and lightly toasted flavor of the malts is the perfect backbone to showcase the special hop blend.

Pilsner can be traced to its namesake, the city of Plzeň (pronounced pilsen) in the western half of the Czech Republic, once part of Bohemia. In 1842, Joseph Groll developed the first light colored beer, an immediate success. Still a popular style, Pilsner influenced the American light lager we know today.

Pours a brilliant golden with a frothy, creamy, dense, white head that lingers.

Grainy malt and lightly floral hops form the aroma.

Flavor is slightly grainy, with soft floral notes, and a cracker malt crisp and bitter finish. There's a touch of tanginess.

Body and carbonation are moderate, finishing crisp and refreshing.

Very approachable beer. Nice example of the style, minus that slightly tangy note.

Bottle: Poured a yellow color pilsner with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of grainy notes is not the most pleasant. Taste is also dominated by some grainy notes with a dry finish with light spicy finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not sure if I got a bad bottle here but this was not the most pleasant and I had hard time finishing a single bottle which is not what I was expecting considering the style.
