Old gold color. Interesting aromas and flavors of roasted pears with honey, toffee, fruit cake, and rye crisps with a satiny, soft, effervescent, fruity watery body and a tingling, amusing, medium-length finish. An atypically fruity and whiskey-like Pilsner for when you’re looking for something different.

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.
