Brilliant light gold color. Savory aromas and flavors of honey buttered baguette, smoked turkey jerky, prosciutto and asparagus omelet, and pickled fruits and cucumbers with a satiny, vibrant, finely carbonated, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long finish revealing notes of lemon-herb corn bread muffin, pepper and olive relish, and dried apricots finish. A super savory and refreshing Pilsner that is sure to please.

Pilsner

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.
