Brilliant light gold color. Fruity, toasty aromas and flavors of fruitcake and zucchini bread and lemon and banana soufflé with a satiny, vibrant, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, appealing, long crusty peppercorn herb muffin, radish, arugula, and roasted nuts finish. A vivacious, zesty Pilsner that wakes the palate and waters the mouth for another sip or bite of food.

Pilsner

Beer Glass Pilsner Gold.jpg
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.
