COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Pilsner is an American Pils with the characteristics of being light in body and color, refreshingly crisp and moderately hopped. Only 2-Row-Barley-Malt, Carapils and light caramel are used for this smooth beer. The bitterness comes from a blend of domestic hops.

Pour is a golden with a white head. Aroma is slightly malty with nothing really redeaming. Flavor is very sweet with a watery finish. Another crap job by Joseph Huber.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2006
12oz bottle pours golden with a short white head that stayed pretty well. Grainy aroma with light grassy hops. Flavor is grains and a little corn, with maybe a touch of honey. Finish is crisp with grassy hops. Body is light and well carbonated. Not one that I would buy again.

Clear yellow color with a white head. Aroma of corn and malt. Flavor of sweet malt. Very watery and drinkable.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Pretty average appearance, poured a clear golden with a foamy white head, good carbonation. Had a nose of bubble gum, sweet fruity malts and the barest trace of banana. A softly crisp and smooth light bodied mouthfeel, average drinkability at best. Bland tasting overall, sweet fruity malts, lemon mixed with a faint banana, the hops are not that noticeable, and a fruity and grainy finish, not much of the dryness that I like in a pilsener. For me personally, this is an below average pilsener or cheap beer, for that matter, I won’t be buying again.

vyvvy (3904) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 23, 2006
Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malt with a touch of corn. Mouthfeel is light with minimal carbonation. Initial taste is very light malt. The finish is also light and is sour. It is a drinkable beer, but there just isn’t much going on. Light flavors and not much to them.

ninobrown (16) - USA - APR 12, 2006
Reviewed as : German Pilsner Light, clear gold. White soapy head with short retention. Light malt aroma. Mostly sweet malt. Quite light and watery. Similar to a macrolager - not similar to a pilsner.

dwyerpg (4508) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 7, 2006
This is a pretty decent pilsener, though it pours suprisingly with almost no head. Just a little grainy, but nice. Actually one of Berghoff’s better beers.

lilsumsum (16) - Chicago (S. Side), Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Golden Color, white head, not very much to this beer by way of flavor, creamy texture. better than the crap shoveled out by Anheiser and Miller.

Tmoney99 (10468) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2005
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a moderate white head that diminished slowly. Average hoppy aroma. Medium body with a thin texture. Medium sweet small bitter flavor with a short finish.

shorn (6) - USA - OCT 13, 2005 does not count
While living in Wisconsin, this was the best drinking beer for $4.99 a six, and still I find few examples of a decent beer for a decent price.
