Brilliant gold color. Aromas of scalloped potatoes with pepper, buttered potato bread toast, poached egg, and hint of banana and vegetable chips with a velvety, lively, petillant, dryish medium body and a tingling, stimulating, long peppercorn muffin, dried lemon, grilled radicchio, and limestone finish. A vibrant mouthfilling Pilsner with bold zesty peppery hops and a long astringent finish tailor made for the table.

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.
