Brilliant light gold color. Green, fruity, vegetal, floral aromas of apple and pear rice candies, floral candle, sprite, and paper mache with a silky, flat, petillant, dryish light body and a smooth, short tangy lemon cookie, shortbread, and white asparagus finish. A hoppy earthy Lager for the table.

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.
