Enjoy the beer that you deserve.
This crisp, refreshing lager ranges from pale to dark straw in color, is light to medium-bodied, is moderate in strength, and is distinguished by the bitterness, flavor, and aroma of the German-variety Noble hops that are used.
German Pilsener is more highly attenuated than Bohemian Pilsener, and makes use of water that is harder and higher in sulfates. As a result, the German Pilsener has a greater and more lingering bitterness.
This can be thought of as a 'copy' of the Bohemian Pilsener style that was adapted to the brewing conditions in Northern and Central Germany. It is a yet another testament to the impact that the Pilsener style had on the world of brewing.
