Brilliant golden yellow color. Aromas and flavors of lemon curd on fresh crumpets, orange zest, melon, and fresh apple with a satiny, vibrant, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a sleek, complex, medium-long finish that presents accents of watercress. A fruity Pilsner with big aromatics.

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.
