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.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2008
Slightly hazy dull gold. Gentle carbonation but no head. Smells very macro - all fusels and acetaldehyde. No hops. Vague, heavy, doughy malts, accents of corn syrup and some background, indistinct toejammy sort of raunch. The general blandness helps it go down but even with the help it’s a bit labourious to choke back a full bottle.

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.

DuffMan (9542) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 6, 2007
Pale straw yellow, moderate white head with poor retention. Sweet, faintly banana aroma. Bland palate, a little too sweet and waaay under-hopped to be called a pilsner.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Pours a transparent pale golden with a large, frothy, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of earthy noble hops and some grainy pale malt. Body starts pretty thin and watery with just a touch of sweetness and some earthy, mildly skunky noble hop bitterness toward a balance, but drinkable finish.

Braudog (6342) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2005 Golden and still with a thin veil. Malty sugar aroma. Tangily tart and sweet, but exceptionally crisp with a hint of lemon, but primarily a malty cerealy beer.

vyvvy (5863) - 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.

thedm (5668) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2003
This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of finely sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated transparent yellow colored body and a fair lace. The aroma was malty and delicately hopped while the mouthfeel was tingly smooth and crisp. The flavor was mildly acidic with malt and minor hop notes.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
JPDIPSO (5657) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2002
Yes, an american pils. THats not saying alot. Light straw color with a wispy white head. Light malt sweetness with moderate bitterness. A salty finish. Lacks the real bit of a bavarian or bohemian pils.

dwyerpg (5649) - 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.
