Pale golden yellow color. Herbal, floral aromas and flavors of lemon floral talc, egg sandwich, and citrus and herbs with a supple, lively, finely carbonated, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, amusing, medium-long finish conveying impressions of spiced carrots, pepper, radicchio, and alpine herbs and mint finish. A solid hoppy Pilsner with attitude.

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.
