STS PilsSTS Pils
Notes: STS Pils is a classic European style Pilsner. It is straw in color and often times will have a slight haze due to the fact that it is unfiltered. STS Pils is a hop forward pilsner with a mild malt foundation, strong lager yeast characteristic, and a dry, bitter finish.

I've just never been a fan of this style. Even Russian River, one of the best breweries in the world, can't convert me.

Surprise of the day at Wild Friendship Blend. Well balanced, incredible aroma and a nice biscuity malt backbone. A little hoppy for style. Great Americanized pilsner.

The groan beer when the list for wild friendship day was released turned out to be a nice surprise. A fresh, clean finishing pilsner with the hop presence you'd expect from Russian River. Would grab again for sure.

510 ml bottle. Pours bright clean straw yellow, thick foamy fluffy head that won't go away, some suds cling on as it eventually recedes. Light grain n grass aroma. Light grain sweetness combined with some nice zesty lemon and grassy bitterness. Very clean dry finish. Great mouthfeel for the style, medium soft n slippery. Excellent pilsner, one of the best I've had so far.

Poured a 510 ML into a tumbler. Nice clear, pale yellow appearance with half finger foamy head. You get lemon rind and yeast in the nose with just a hint of menthol as it warms in the glass. Tasty lemon and dough flavors with the slightest of slight sweetness at the tip of the tongue. Has a creamy and smooth texture with just the right amount of carb. It finishes with a lingering citrus and mild bitterness. Wish I had some more. One per customer, unfortunately...

Presentation: Draft, served in a Revival pint glass.

Appearance: The thick, one finger head settles down into a thin foam layer that stays until the end. It leaves a lot of thick lacing that covers the entire glass. It's a slightly hazy, pure gold color.

Smell: It's very faint. There's some earthy, grainy malt and a light hint of floral hops.

Taste: It starts with a clean, malty sweetness and finishes with a hint of bitter, earthy pine resin and citrus from the hops. Simple but very good.

Mouthfeel: It's medium bodied, crisp and refreshing with a dry finish and medium-high carbonation.

Overall: An excellent pils with a great hop-forward flavor and a heftier than average body while still being refreshing.

6/5/17 - On tap at Monk's in Philly. Served in a classic pint glass. Looks and smells like any other pilsner. Little to no lacing. Taste, though. Spectacular. Smooth and malty. Some bitterness. I'll pass on every other pilsner until I can have this again. Get some.
