Medium old gold color. Interesting aromas of herb rye toast with orange jam with a supple, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity full body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long caramelized mango and pineapple, radish sprouts, tamarind candy, and kale finish. A tasty, fruity, herbal and round 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.
