COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed on Pescadero Avenue, which is located in the coastal San Diego town of Ocean Beach. Pescadero Pilsner pours a light, golden color with a bright white head. It has aromas of bready pilsner malt and a grassy, floral Saaz hops. There is a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness and lemon citrus flavor from the hops. With a touch of dry hopping and an elevated ABV, this Pilsner-inspired, cold fermented lager is both traditional and new world at the same time.

Draught @ Ballast Point Miramar, San Diego, CA

Pours yellowish with a smooth head. Aroma of grassy hops, earthy notes, grainy malts and hints of butter. Taste is smooth, crisp and sweetish with hints of citrus, lemon and butter. Finish is sweetish, earthy and slightly grainy with hints of grass. Quite sweet for a pils.

On tap at the Little Italy location. It pours a pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma is nice and bready with very little lemongrass-like grassy hops. The flavor is just ok. Lemongrass is prevalent, but it’s a bit full bodied and on the sweet side. A little floral. Hints of honey and pale maltiness with some green apple, and honestly, not enough hop character which surprised me from this brewery. Just ok overall.

[ Keg ][ 16oz ][ O’Hurley’s Leucadia ][ $1.50 ][ Conical Pint ][ 4.24.15 ]
>> Dead carbonation from probably low CO2 on the keg, clear straw color, medium white foam, spotty lace. Nose is fresh lime, lemon juice, white bread, white corn. Taste is crisp, well balanced, great body to balance with thicker honey biscuit, grassy, sharp hop bite to finish. Really good. Would like this more mainstream for Ballast Point. Would just replace their "Pale Ale", which is a "Kolsch" with this one for best craft canned portfolio ever.

Draft at Ballast Point. Pours a murky yellow with minimal head. Grassy and floral tones on the nose. Taste is super clean - grassy hops and bread malts. Decent enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty nice, especially in a style I don’t get overly excited about. Classic pils grassy hops, crisp malt bite, and clean finish. Nothing done too differntly, just done better
