We spent some time selecting the German ingredients to make a proper Pilsner. First, German pilsner malts create a light, dry malt backbone and a beautiful pale golden color. Then, German Magnum hops balance the malt character with a smooth, clean bitterness. Of course, the classic, noble flavor of Saaz hops lends a lovely crispness that accentuates the clean, dry finish. We dry hopped the beer with another pound per barrel of Saaz.
