Dark amber color. Toasty aromas and flavors of chocolate muffin, roasted nuts, and tamarind with a satiny, bright, finely carbonated, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, engaging, medium-long finish conveying notes of chocolate orange peel, peppercorn muffin, and bitter greens finish. Color and style is more like a Vienna lager, but this is a nice peppery lager.

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.
