COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in strict German tradition, Purple Gang Pilsner is a steady reminder of the German domination of brewing before and during Prohibition. A light malty sweetness yields to the fine flavor and aroma of the noble Tettnang hops.

Sammy (11177) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2015
Fresh bottle from Champane’s Cellars. Cheese in smell and taste, unfortunately more in latter. Carbonation right there. Minute amount of hops. More drain pour.

MohaBeer (202) - Lima, PERU - SEP 19, 2015
Dorado con opacidad, buena espuma con adherencia. Lúpulo floral moderado, malta maltosa baja, ligero DMS. En boca lúpulo alto, amargor excesivo para el estilo, malta maltosa baja, oxidación, frutos secos. Final seco en exceso, lupulado con ligera astringencia y frutos secos. Carbonatación moderada, cuerpo bajo.

r464 (2264) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Huge foaming white head that wouldn’t stop coming. Somewhat dry, malt and trashy hops with a dry, but not bitter, finish. Pretty run-of-the-mill.

ClarkVV (5787) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Draught at Atwater in the Park, Summer 2014.
Clear, very light golden body has lazy carbonation coursing upwards to form a small, poorly-retained white head.
Well, looks like another terrible bottled product from Atwater Block. The draught version was passable, though there’s really no comparison between the beers brewed at the Detroit location vs. the beers brewed at the In the Park location. Very dry, grassy, leafy hops with some biscuity/grainy maltiness, maybe a touch of corn-like character and no alcohol.
Dry, at least, with soft herbs, minimal spiciness and pretty straightforward white bread-like maltiness. Ample, yet loose carbonation dosent really add much crispness and it does come off a bit fizzy and very watery. Eh, had worse, but will stick to the Park-brewed beers next time I’m there.

raymow (1408) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2015
bottled (variety case) - pale golden color. Not much aroma - smells like a wheat beer. Flavor is just ok. Nothing special.

czar (7723) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
pours hazy pale yellow with a thin white cap, some retention and lacing. crisp pils with a touch of bread, other cereals, faint fruitiness - hint of white grapes, lemon, pepper, grass and herbs - nobleness, sulfur. moderately low carbonation, light body - tad watery, dry grassy-herbal finish. relatively clean and tasty enough.

ARH (1117) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a stemmed tulip. The aromas are a notable bread and straw with some mineral-like notes and a touch of lemon. It’s a clear, effervescent pale with a puffy white head. The head leaves an abundant messy lace. It’s a medium bitter with a light sweet and a touch of salty. The creamy, soft carbonation, has a grainy, creamy texture and a medium light body. A spicy, buttery toast, mineral, and lemon peel finish leaves behind a clean spicy and buttered toast flavor.

alobar (3532) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Clear straw yellow pour with no head. Aroma of grain and must. Mediocre flavor of grain and lemon. Not much to it.

Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle. Clear yellow with a white head. Sour malt and sweet grain. Pretty clean and neutral.
