Full Sail Pilsner

What the brewers say

“This beer has intense aromas of citrus and pine, supported by a medium body and dry malty palate. As you savor that unmistakable aroma and long, clean hops finish, tip your hat (and your glass) to the generations of hops farmers who help us live the locavore dream every day.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Peach-like esters with very mild hops, along with some indeterminate malt. I think this could work better as a mild saison (except for the DMS). Some malt sweetness heightens the soapy, floral character.”

Flavor: “Earthy, woody hops flavor followed by a strong bitter finish. Slightly warming alcohol. I’m still getting the peach ester and intense floral flavors, like tulip or geranium. Bitterness balanced with a biscuit malt backbone. Both flavors blend together well.”

Overall: “The color and hops are in line with style, but the rest is a bit distracting. A unique and assertive interpretation to the style that is a bit heavy-handed with the use and choice of hops. An interesting beer to drink, but not something I’d seek out if looking for a refreshing Pilsner on a hot day.”
