Brewed in the classic American pilsner style, our popular pils is a tribute to the pre-prohibition lagers developed and brewed by immigrant German brewmasters as they settled in the United States in the 1800s. This is a medium-bodied straw colored pilsner with an elegant hop bitterness and lingering aroma.

Very clear green hued straw color. Nice rocky white foam. Light lemon citrus, herbal, floral and rindy bitterness. Aroma volume is low to low-medium. Wet and minerally. Perfectly fine pils.

On tap @ Auburn Alehouse. Clear golden pour with a white head. Kind of citrusy and a little bit on the lemony/tangy side. Maybe a bit skunky? Pretty grassy as well. The flavor is a touch bitter, but I guess that’s appropriate. A lot of grass, lemon peel, and straw. Too much apple peel for me, though.

On at @ AA This is the way a pilsner should taste. Clean, crisp malt flavor mingling with peppery, grassy hops with just a twinge of sourdough-like tartness in there. My mouth is watering for another one. Great brew.

"actually pretty good for a pilsner, but pales (no pun intended) compared to Auburn’s BIG ales. Pleasing aroma, crisp and refreshing, but nothing that stands out."

Draft at the brewpub. Very clear, very light yellow. Light grassy hops in the nose. Medium bitterness with a light rassy hop and hay flavor. Not too bad I guess. Would like more hops in the flavor.

Tap at the brewhouse. Decent representation of the style, bit more forward in the hop department, which is nice.

On tap at SF Beer Week Opening Gala. Pour is straw yellow with a small white head. Aroma is of grains, yeast, and grass. Flavor is mellow with notes of earth, grass, and straw. Very malty finish.

bhensonb (12756) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours gold with a white head. Light aroma of something. Med minus body. Flavor is enough grassy/spicy hop to hide most of the breadinesss. Bitter is decent and grows into the finish. Better than many "pils".

On draft at Tap 25. It pours a clear, light gold color with a white head. The aroma is nice with worty grains and drier lager yeast. The flavor has earthy, bitter hops and a dense maltiness. Well balanced with strong bitterness in the finish. I liked this one.
