Lightning Will Pilsner by On Tour Brewing Co. was rated as per style guidelines established by the Beer Judge Certification Program under subheading 5D German Pils.

Pale yellow in color and brilliantly clear with a fine bead and  big white head that poured up nicely and quickly fell off.

The aroma was hop accented yet of a subtle nature much like the traditional German style dictates. A typical grainy pilsner malt bouquet influences the balance but take a lesser position to the aforementioned German hops.

A delicate balance of noble hops and bready malt character come together nicely in the flavor profile with hops leading the way to a long dry finish. A thin bodied beer which delivers alcohol at only traditional levels and does not overwhelm.

A clean, thirst-quenching example of the style that should please the lovers of this, the most successful beer style in the world.
