Light gold color. Aromas and flavors of corn bread with jalapeño, green herbs and chamomile, lemon pepper, and pumpkin tart with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a tingling, complex, long toasted Hawaiian bread, dried fruit, honeyed radishes, and pepper finish. A well-made hoppy take on the classic style that will appeal to pale ale fans.

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.
