It was in 1842 that a Bavarian brewmaster first brewed this classic beer style, today known throughout the world. Unfortunately, it is often poorly copied, being created using adjunct grains like corn, rice, or worse yet, sugar cane or beets. These adjuncts produce beer without body, mouth feel or specific character. We use 100% barley malt. Our Pilsener is everything that a true Pils should be: clear, golden color with a dense white head, full of barley malt and balanced with a perceptible noble hop bitterness.

Pours a clear lemon yellow with thin white head. Aroma is citrus yeast with bitter earthy notes. Flavor is earthy lemon. The tart lemon notes are offset by very dry notes. Body is light with high carbonation.

Tap. Pours a very pale slightly hazy yellow. Minimal head. Flavor is crisp Euro malt followed by tangy, slightly peppery German/Czech hops. Finish is clean and dry. Light bodied.

Thanks to Skyview. Pours a light golden amber, with a nice head. Nice biscuity malt, and funky earthy spiciness on the nose. Very full flavored and bodied, with a great sweet malt and definite noble hops. Great long lasting finish.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2010 Got a fresh glass at the Brewpub. Crisp malt body with moderate carbonation and solid hop bitterness. Lingering taste of aroma hops in the finish. Very authentic German Pils, like the little village breweries still make. Seems a bit high in alcohol, though. Nevertheless, one of the best that I have ever had.

Baumgartner (122) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2008
July 2nd, 2008 Sample platter. A very crisp aroma of straw with a light piney hop. The brew was a medium yellow, almost clear and a small off white head. Slightly sweet with a moderate bitter after taste.

Sep 29, 2007 Draught at the brewpub. This is a pilsner?!? That was my reaction the first time I had this beer. The beer was a cloudy gold color with mild carbonation. It had a delicious zesty-wheaty aroma and flavor. There was also a mild sweetness in the flavor. Definitely the best American Pilsener!!

This beer is a pinnacle of what a pilsner brewed in America can and should be. The hops are there in both taste and aroma. My favorite is when this beer is first tapped. It is so cloudy and full bodied that its a truly a treat. Save the money for a trip to the Czech republic, go here for the best pilsner you will find
