Description 

Inspired by the perfectly balanced light lagers of Central Europe, we set out to brew a Pilsner to be proud of. The result is a crisp and refreshing beer that’s brewed with 100% barley malt and imported Hallertauer hops.

Initial notes of floral noble hops are moderately low and a slightly grassy character is supported by a fairly light malt backbone that is bready with honey-like overtones. This beer pours a slightly hazy, light-yellowish gold color with a small white head of fine bubbles that dissipates quickly. The flavor is balaned evenly between a very clean, lager-like light malt and a medium-low hop flavor with light bitterness leading into a semi-dry finish with slight tropical and pineapple notes. The malt flavor is light bread dough, a light touch of non-assertive honey, and a bit of a grainy husk notes typical of the style. This beer's medium-light body is very crisp and clean and the carbonation is medium -- the bubbles keep coming, but they disappear as they rise to the top. This is a really great beer, but I'd like to see a touch more bitterness and a smidge more malt backbone to match the German Pilsner style. A really nice poolside beer with some bratwurst sizzling on the grill.
