Brewery: Founders Brewing Company
Style: German Pilsner
Other Notes: 45 IBUs
Brewer Description: (from website) Pleasantly crisp, perfectly clean and profoundly crushable, PC Pils is our take on the classic Pilsner style. While Noble hops have been the preferred choice of Pilsner brewers around the world, we went with some of our favorite American varieties. Piney Chinook, pleasantly citrus Cascade and punchy Centennial make this an easy-drinker with floral hop characteristics. Pretty cool, if you ask us.

Intro: A 355ml bottle with a best by date of 7th July 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A slightly hazy straw golden colour with a two finger white head that dissipated quite fast but left nice lacing.
Aroma: Bready, citrus, pine with hints of herbal and floral elements.
Taste: Sweet grainy malt, pine, lemon zest bitter and bready with a herbal note.
Mouthfeel: Dry, crisp, light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Clean, refreshing, good balance of sweet and bitter, and an interesting take on the Pilsner using American hops.
