Description 

Everything we love about classic German Pilsner with a hoppy Bohemian twist.  Pils is a bright straw colored lager beer with playful carbonation topped with beautiful white foam lace.  Delicate lightly toasted malt flavors underscore noble German hop character.  Hallertau-grown Magnum hops deliver the lupulin foundation while generous amounts of Spalter Select hops bring  floral aromatic and spicy herbal notes. As a twist on the traditional Pils, we dry hop with German Saphir for a touch of bergamot zest and lemongrass. A refreshing, light-bodied and hop-driven Pils.

Pouring a beautiful, crystal-clear golden, this ale firmly holds a tall white stand of foam. The aroma highlights traditional spicy and herbal noble hops but with a slight hint of a citrus character. Light bready malt complements the hop aroma with an extremely clean fermentation that avoids showing any fruity esters. Again, moderate spicy and herbal hops are at the forefront of the flavor above the supporting bready malt. The finish is bitter, crisp and clean with light spicy and herbal hops and, once again, a hint of citrus. Very clean and extremely well brewed.
