Description 

Some ideas are simply ahead of their time. The stuff in this can, however, is right on schedule. We channeled a madman's spirit and wild ingenuity to create this truly unique version of a classic. Wonderstuff delivers the clean, balanced flavors you'd expect from a Bohemian Style Pilsner, but with a powerful, citrus hop twist. Truly the stuff of wonder, this beer will change the way you think about light lagers.

This Pilsner starts slightly muted with low floral hop and spicy hop aromas alongside some low rose esters. Medium-low notes of crackery pils malt are in support. As the beer warms, a whiff of sulfur emerges. The pour is very clear, medium-golden in color with a moderate, off-white head that lasts for a good while. A rather classic Pils with a somewhat simpler malt profile, this beer is appealing to the eye.  

The upfront flavor of crackery malt is followed by a bit of graininess and some light honey flavors that seem malt-derived. Hop flavor is medium, spicy and floral while the bittering is medium-high and lingers long into the finish, giving a bit of harsh coarseness at the end.  

A medium body and carbonation character end with a very light astringency at the finish that serves to dry this one out. 

This is a nice beer; the malt starts soft and round and gets a little rougher as it warms up. Keeping it a bit softer all the way through would be a plus and would tighten this beer up to be a classic example of the style.
