COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer was first brewed in St. Louis by brewmaster Jim Bicklein and was developed in collaboration with brewmaster Katie Rippel from Fort Collins, Colo. “The original Budweiser brewery is, of course, here in St. Louis, so we wanted to honor our brewing heritage with a beer that uses ingredients that German immigrants, like our founder Adolphus Busch, would have used when they came to the United States,” Bicklein said. “In this pilsner we use the same types of Hallertau and Tettnang hops commonly used in St. Louis during the late 1800s.”

Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Aroma has sweet straw and a very mild bubblegum note. Flavor is sweet straw and a hint of grass. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is a bit grassy/spicy. A little sweet up front but not awful.

12 ounce bottle, born on date of September 30, 2012 (Julian Date 12274 stamped on label). A buddy recently bought me some of the Project 12 beers since they were on sale (got the 12 pack for just $5.75), figured I might as well try it! Served in a pilsener glass, the beer pours a clear dark gold color with almost an inch white head. Head retention is OK, but there isn’t much lacing. The brew smells like sweet and bready malt, along with some corn. Taste is just like the aroma. Mouthfeel/body is light, it’s smooth and easy to drink with good carbonation. It’s not what I’m looking for when I buy a pilsner, but it’s not an awful beer either. Worth a try if you can get a single or if you can get some for free. But overall, it’s my least favorite of the Project 12 beers I’ve tried.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, dark gold with some very thin head. Aroma of bread and light citrus. Taste is cery lightly bitter. Mostly grains. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation but a lasting finish. Overall, meh. Its ok but not super.

Bottle as shown. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a medium frothy white head that lasts awhile leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is corn malt and honey. Medium mouthfeel with the flavor similar to the aroma and a bit soapy. Not much going on with this one.

RSRIZZO (1870) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2013
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Footed Pilsener glass at 36°. Color is a bright gold with good carbonation and a small tight head. Aroma is light with crystal malts and a touch of hops. It has a light crisp body that goes down with a smooth feel. Flavor is light grain giving a note of sweet corn then a hint of hops give a wisp of citrus. In the after taste a nice bitterness comes in leaving it clean. Overall this is not a style I like much, but for a Pilsener its not bad.

kramer (5063) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Pours a clear yellow body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is lightly hoppy, somewhat sweet, laced with corn. The flavor isn’t a whole lot better than most macro pale lagers, overly heavy on the corn and rather minimal on the hops. Not exactly what they promise on the label. Fairly heavy body for a pilsner, too much residual sweetness. Fizzy prickly carbonation. This was the biggest loser of the three.
