3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours hazy gold with a foamy white head--loving the unfiltered murkiness. Smell is light breadiness with an herbal hop aroma and a light honey sweetness. Taste is all barley, bread, and yeast up front, finishing with a light herbal grassiness. Maybe a bit too much grain, and feels a bit heavier than I’d like. However, this beer has a decent amount of heft while still being very drinkable. I feel like this beer would get better and better the more I’d have of it.

fruity and full of honey with a nice balanced hoppiness and touch of pepper on the tongue. moderate chewy body with some essence of caramel and vanilla and a bit of grass. low alkaline just barely there for balance. nice beer.

After seeing Skyview’s raves, I decided to head down to Menomonie and check out Das Bierhaus for myself. I ordered the sampler, in which I got about 4 oz. each of all five of Das Bierhaus’ beers for the very reasonable price of $5. The Pilsener has a very nice, fruit-heavy aroma with apricot, pear, green grape, honey, and floral hops scents. Pours a sparkling pale gold with a white head. The flavor features a honey-sweet maltiness and, more prominently, an aggressive dry hoppiness. This is my kind of pilsner (i.e., very hoppy)! Medium body (full by the standards of a lager). Lively and frothy in the palate. This is a very good pils. It’s easily one of the best American pilsners I have tried, although I should note that its German heritage is unmistakable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I find myself enjoying this style more and more, ecspecially when it’s a well made pils. Clear golden, thin white top. Grain and slight corn on the nose- this time thta doesn’t turn me off. Taste has the grassiness and firm astringent hop character that i expected. But well balanced, not too grainy. Just right. Slightly dry.

Yep. This is what a pilsner should be. Unfiltered, ample bitterness, good hoppiness. Served at a little warmer temp than I’d like, but that is about the only negative thing I can say about this beer. World Class within the style. Very nice job Das Bierhaus!

Growler via Mys Swap 4 (thanks skyview!!).
Pours a hazy amber with a nice large white head. Nose is earthy/spicy. Taste is biscuits, grass, toast, mild fruit. Body is medium, carbonation is perfect. This is very very very tasty. I could drink this all day every day. Mmmmmmmmm, i am speechless. The flavors meld together perfectly. Tis a master brewer who can make a Pils that is so far above the rest.

Sampler. Cloudy gold, nice lacing. Nice aroma of earthy hops with a bit of grains and lemon as well. Nice solid bitterness, but not too much. Excellent pilsner.
