Light gold color. Fresh aromas and flavors of lemon cookies, orange blossom, and herb scone with a satiny, vibrant, effervescent, dryish light body and a seamless, breezy finish with accents of pretzel, marmalade, sweet spice, and zucchini bread finish. A refreshingly clean and well hopped pils with an elegant, fresh style.

Serve in a Pilsner Glass
Pilsners are pale to golden straw in color and range in alcohol from 4.5-6%. The hallmark of a fresh pilsner is a dense, white head. The alcohol levels must be such as to give a rounded mouthfeel. These beers are medium-bodied and are characterized by high carbonation and tangy Czech and German varieties of hops that impart floral aromas and a crisp, bitter finish. This style originated in Bohemia in the Czech Republic. German pilsner styles are similar, though often slightly lighter in body and color. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Pilsner Urquell, Paulaner Premium Pils, Brooklyn Brewery Brooklyn Pilsner and Victory Prima Pils.
