Bright pale gold color. Interesting, green aromas of fresh pepper bread and tortilla, peach preserves, Meyer lemon, and pine bark and resin with a body and a tingling, medium-long ripe grapefruit, honey, and peppery spice finish. A great hoppy, IPA-like pilsner with bushels full of citrusy American hops.

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.
