Bright golden yellow color. Savory aromas and flavors of cheddar and egg sandwich and toasted herb buttered challah dinner rolls with a satiny, crisp, finely carbonated, medium body and an engaging, medium-long daikon, bamboo shoot, honeyed dried orange, and kale finish. A refreshing nicely balanced lager with great flavor and subtlety.

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.
