Minutely hazy golden amber color. Interesting aromas of fruity honeycomb, sourdough toast, dark homemade potato chips and country potatoes, and vegetable omelet with a supple, lively, effervescent, dryish medium body and a peppery, interesting, medium-long saltines, grilled veggie lettuce with lemon dressing, radishes, and peppers finish. A very snappy, peppery and earthy Pilsner that will shine at the table, especially fried foods.

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.
