Pale clear gold color. Lively, yeasty, fatty savory toasty aromas and flavors of honey roasted corn, caramelized nuts, and lemongrass with a silky, bright, finely carbonated, off-dry medium body and a smooth, relaxed corn puff cereal, bib lettuce, and spiced yams finish. A zesty, flavory pilsner with a nice balance of fruity and savory tones.

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.
