Pullman Pilsner was evaluated as a Czech Premium Pale Lager (2015 Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) Category 3B) offering according to BJCP guidelines. 

Supper clean fermentation allows the Pilsner malt and a milled corn grits aspect to shine through. The malt is joined with spicy hops for a perfectly balanced aroma. Light golden color, brilliant clarity with a creamy, dense and lingering white head. The flavor follows with rich soft malt that may be a tad too sweet but is nicely offset by a moderately high level of rounded hop bitterness. The hop flavors are a combination of floral and spice which complement the malt.  The overall balance leans slightly toward the bitterness aided by a moderately dry finish. There is a very low level peach like ester in the flavor, but otherwise clean with a lingering floral hop aftertaste. Medium body and moderate carbonation allow for a thoroughly enjoyable, well made Pilsner style beer.
