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.

Thin head on a clear, golden colored body. A few bubbles coming up and good lacing. It has a faint lemon smell. The taste is moderate bitterness throughout with a sweet finish. Nice profile. Crisp texture, moderate carbonation and medium body. A tasty lager and good too.

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."

Homer321 (2437) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2014
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 (11906) - 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".

joeneugs (3740) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 31, 2013
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.

krumbum (581) - truckee, California, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Clear straw yellow appearance. Lingering hop taste. It is a big pils. After reading the intentions of the brewer it fits their goal but having had other beers from Auburn mostly their Strong, IPA, and 2xIPA it caught me off guard. Their Ipas are so floral having such a i bitter hop in their pils was unexpected.

Clear straw pour with a white billowy head. Grassy hops and grain nose. Light body interesting grain profile. Smooth mouthfeel. Bitter finish. Good for the style but not really my bag.
