Bright yellow color. Interesting aromas and flavors of roasted root vegetables, starfruit pastry, greek yogurt, and egg salad sandwich with a satiny, vibrant, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and an effortless, charming, medium-long finish with touches of peppered greens and jicama and herb bread finish. A fun, lively, slightly rambunctious Pilsner that will be great with savory south of the border cuisine.

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.
