Brilliant old gold color. Aromas and flavors of apple soufflé, egg croissant, honey baked beans, and chive with a satiny, tangy, frothy, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, brisk finish imparting impressions of roasted turnip and yams, collard greens, peppercorn, and parchment finish. A slightly vegetal and sulfurous lager for the table.

Pilsner

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.
