A Note on This Beer
Summer is officially over, but whenever I cozy up by a fireplace, bundle up in a heavy fleece, or my spouse cranks up the thermostat higher than I thought was possible — the one thing I crave is a Pilsner.
One place I know I can find an outstanding Pils is Temescal. Hop Culture places them among a very elite 5 Best Breweries in Oakland. They say, “there’s a lot to love about Temescal Brewing’s appreciable mix of flawlessly executed classic styles.”
Temescal Headbrewer Mike Makris, formerly of The Rare Barrel, says their tasty Pils “is the result of two years of experimentation: a 5.0% ABV 'modern twist’ on one of the highest-rated beers in all of Italy on BeerAdvocate.”
Like traditional Italian Pilsners, Temescal’s Pils is dry-hopped, soft, aromatic, and finishes crisp.
Unlike the old country Pils, Temescal’s take on the style goes hard on the hops to deliver a bright and complex, fruity cereal flavor. It doesn’t adhere to any rules, and sits somewhere between a German and a Czech-style. It’s a sweet and slightly bitter new hybrid style that reflects the current trends in craft.
I’m excited to share this innovative Pils with you during my favorite time to drink it: whenever I can actually get my hands on it!
*Serve cold between 42 and 48 degrees for maximum refreshment.

Delicious! Easily chuggable, yet still enough flavor to be a sipper.
This was a nice easy drinking around the campfire beer
Crisp and refreshing. Slightly grassy with hints of corn and cracker

Light, crisp, lawn mower beer
Bright! Yummmm! Goes down maybe too easy. Pilsner fans will love this. Smoothness in a can
Nice and light. Not too much malty flavor (which is good). body is well balanced.
Do all pilsners taste the same?
Light, not very malty. Bright floral notes.
Odd pilsner, but delicious
Herbal, Floral, Honeysuckle, Bready, Biscuit
Very crisp, which is good, but the flavor lacks complexity. It’s just beer, good beer, but still.
Nice crisp pilsner
