Brilliant golden yellow color. Floral, fresh aromas and flavors of banana melon salad, lemon vanilla custard, and hint of piney herbs with a silky, bright, finely carbonated, medium body and a polished, interesting, medium-long finish with notes of thyme honey on nut toast, berry-mango chutney, fruit loops, and bbq sweet potato chip finish. A pleasant, very fruity lager that will be a crowd pleaser.

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.
