Minutely hazy gold color. Tropical, piney aromas and flavors of mango chutney, pine needle and forest, toast, and hop pellet with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a nuanced, long finish that exhibits overtones of honeyed lemon and melon, bitter greens, and peppery spice finish. A nice hoppy 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.
