Brilliant light gold color. Delicate, toasty aromas of fresh baguette and tortilla, roasted corn husk, and clay with an even, soft, fizzy, fruity medium body and a smooth, charming, medium-length alfalfa sprouts, starfruit, flour, and canned corn finish. A nice easy lawnmower beer.

Pilsner

Beer Glass Pilsner Gold.jpg
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.
