UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Tap at Das Bierhaus - renamed to Chill Pils. Has this on Nov. 18, 2011. Clear light gold pour with minimal head. Carbonation bubbles present. Light and grainy, with a touch of hops. A little butter in the taste as well.

Thanks to Bob for bringing the large, bad-ass growler! Poured hazy paler golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up rather odd pineappley notes upfront along with some butter and lemon rind afterward.. nothing in here really did it for me. The flavor had more pineapple and some bready pils sweetness accented by a light herbal bitterness.. a tad sour at the back-end. Lighter-bodied with lower carbonation.. decent balance.. this was a day-old growler, but I’m guessing that it’s better on tap.

On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a transparent deep effervescent golden with a nicely-lacing stringy white head. Aroma of fresh, crisp noble hops and lightly sweet pale malt. Starts fairly full for the style with a good mild sweetness and great balance of fresh Saaz hops toward a crisp, very drinkable finish. Definitely one of the best pilsners I’ve had.

Cheesehead YeAH 2007, thanks Bob for the growler: Golden hue with a fizzy fading head and some spotty lace. The aroma has notes of buttered bread, floral hops, mineral, and a hint of lemon zest. The taste is slightly bread and syrupy sweet with overwhelmed pils herbal hops somewhere in there. The mouth feel is flat and not refreshing like the style should be. Something just is not right with this beer, needs rerate.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2009 Thanks to Skyview for sharing. An interesting and unusual pilsner. Gold in color and a white head, it looks very nice. Aroma has light hops. The flavor is a surprise, mild hops and very salty. One of the saltiest beers I have ever had, like a gose. Herbal, vegetal finish. It is hard to find a pilsner so thick and heavy on the palate, quite a rare thing. The best pilsner I have had outside of the Czech Republic, and certainly my favorite non-Bohemian style pilsner.

Visited Das Bierhaus for their official Grand Opening on June 30. This beverage pours a clear rich golden blonde brew with a nice white head that slowly dissolves to a fine film. Excellent lacing that occurs naturally or after taking a drink. Aroma of sweet Hawaiian bread dough, sunflower honey, with flowery hops. Taste is slightly thick, creamy, medium body (surprising for a Pils), lightly carbonated, with a slight sweet bread aftertaste. Finish is smooth, light and a near clean aftertaste. By far, one of the best pilseners I have had to date.

On tap at Das Bierhaus. Straw yellow pour that’s a touch hazy with a white head. Aroma of noble and grassy hops, grains and pale malt. Taste of sweet malt, burnt match, noble hops and finishes up a touch bitter.

First a sampler than a full pour in a large ass footed pilsner glass. It is a completely full thick golden color, cannot see through it. Has a firm thick head on top. As the head fades a thick insulation-like foam sticks around and covers the surface. A pretty damn attractive beer. Aroma is a very thick lacto/milky-like maltiness and not just the standard white bread maltiness; thick, strong, original, and interesting. The flavor is similar but it is balanced by some zing from the hops. Has a long sweet, non-sugary aftertaste with a hint of non-citric lemon. It is very easy drinking despite having a thick, full body. It is a "big" pils without being the Americanized version of "big." I would go out of my way to drink this again.
