Light gold color. Toasty, herbal aromas and flavors of toasted herb bread and croissant, roasted corn and sweet potato, dried citrus, and schmaltz muffin with a satiny, tangy, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a tingling, subtle, long braised radicchio, pepper, creamy polenta, and poached egg and minerals finish. A delicious, spot-on Pilsner with great flavor and length.

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.
