Brilliant gold color. Fruity, hoppy aromas and flavors of mango-peach relish, toasted hawaiian bread, and pine and grass with a supple, lively, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, intriguing, medium-long finish displaying notes of peppered greens and honey roasted nuts finish. A tasty, very American hop forward take on the pilsner style that will appeal to West Coast IPA fans.

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.
