Pale light gold color. Aromas and flavors of herb scone, cold cultured butter, and lemon zest with a satiny, crisp, effervescent, dryish light body and a smooth, medium-length finish revealing notes of hints of caramel, minerals, and mustard greens. A rock-solid Pilsner with balanced bitterness and a lively, elegant style.

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.
