Crafted in the style of pre-prohibition American pilsner, this lager is brewed with a blend of two row barley malt, pilsner malt, and good old American corn. Floral hop character comes from the exclusive use of American Liberty hops. Golden straw colored with thick white foam and a mild hop profile, this beer is light enough to complement any meal, but big enough to be noticed.

Very pale straw coloured brew with a nice noble hop aroma. Assertive bitterness and a bit of fresh straw/hay pilsner malt. Big assertive hop flavour and aroma. It’s quite nice.

Nice tasty american lager. Poured gold w/moderate head, enough hops to add flavoring but without destroying the lager essence. Good stuff.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Tap at Rattle n Hum: Pours a golden with great clarity and a strong well retained white head. Crispy clean aroma displaying dry bread crust like malts- crackery and grassy with a mild peppery noble hop presence. Incredibly creamy and substantial body with a dry clean flavor. Again, bread crust and dry crackery (pils?) pale malts with a lemon peel like brightness precedes a peppery and dry finish. An outstanding session lager!

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Experienced via draft in a pub glass. Given the quality of Bear Republic’s other offerings, I was expecting a beer more akin to their Dortmunder Export or at the very least, something like Sam Adams’ Boston Lager. Instead, this arrived. The beer pours the characteristic straw-colored yellow with a moderate white head. The nose is faint and pale. A prevalent note of alcohol dominates other grainy pilner-derived character. The palate fails to improve the initial disappointment. Again, heavy alcohol comes first, followed by a bitterness flacid grainy note and insipid mouth feel. The finish is clean and dry, but really serves only to allow the aforementioned flavors to linger in the mouth. Overall, a poor effort from an otherwise excellent brewery.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Tap at Pacific Standard. Pours a slight hazy medium golden with a lasting thin white head. TOasty malt aroma backed up with a good earthy zesty and floral hops fresh. Bready dough malt, light sweetness some honey, floral and spicy hops and a decent crisp pilsner malt backbone for 6.5%- easy drinking.

Draft. Pours a pale golden body with a white head. Bitter earth y hop tones, some light corn sweetness, citrus notes with a lightly bittering finish. Nice lager!

Clear yellow with a almost no head. Faint malty aroma and a strong grain taste with some alcohol notes to the finish.
