ROGUE (2182) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Pours a slightly cloudy bright golden yellow. Medium head that disipates quickly. Extra hoppy with a light bitterness. This is a very decent pilsner. These beers are still being brewed in Deleware.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Artusory. Slightly hazy gold/light amberish color with decent white head that fades to film. Aroma is biscuity/bready pils malt with light citrus and grassy hops in the background. Flavor is very astringent combination of malt and grassiness. Astringency is really killing the score for me.

BeerandBlues2 (12100) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 7, 2006
12-oz. bottle from artusory. Pours a clean rich gold with a small frothy head that quickly diminishes to some patchy film. Aroma is strong toasted malt (grain, meal, cereal) and noble hops, some yeast (sweat). Moderately bitter, medium acidity, hidden sweetness, grain and meal, sweat flavor, finish is lingering sour malt and yeast. Light and crisp bodied, very drinkable and refreshing, a tad dry at the end.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAY 13, 2006
Pours a very light amber/pale with a slight haze. Medium sized white head, quickly fades to a cover, nice lacing. The aroma is honey, lemon, grassy, some biscuit. Full flavor, biscuit, bready, honey plenty of grassy hops on the back side, some lemons at the end. Medium body with a fairly clean, bitter finish. Easily my new favorite Pils.

ABUSEDGOAT (2583) - California, USA - MAR 16, 2006
Poured a rich bronze body with a large head into my Pilsner Urquell glass. Aroma is grass, bread, caramel and also their yeast. Flavor is the same with a lasting bitterness. Slight buttery mouthfeel. Very drinkable, the glass is almost empty already.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - DEC 28, 2005
(Bottle - now being brewed by DeGroens Brewing of Dover, DE) Pours somewhat cloudy yellow with soft white head. Aroma sort of sweetish, bready, yeasty. Good lacing. Pleasant mouthfeel. Tastes slightly bready, has a unique sort of mild honeyish sweetness. Finishes bitter, but doesn’t linger. Really nice, easy drinker.

Nejhleader (1451) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2005
got the variety pack of this, glad i got it, as the are out of business, but i wonder how old these bottles are, i couldn’t find an age. Anyway first of the head on this is gigantic. Has a fairly standard pils taste. bit malty i wasn’t detecting any hops as the description say. Strong carbonation, malty aroma. pretty crisp, but pilsners aren’t really my thing.

Hoppirriffic......I’m not sure why they say this is retired.....I just got it in a new & improved bottle. It was hoppy to the point of bitter but not unpleasant.

jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 25, 2005
The better of the two degroen’s selections I picked up at a wine bar in Maryland (the other was the Marzen). Nice and hoppy, lively effervescent aroma with a pleasant and quick finish. Doesn’t quite bite the throat, but really has a nice kick to it. Very enjoyable.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2005
I like this pils but my wife hates it, chiefly because of the hoppiness here which has a slightly bitter kick but otherwise its a nicely balanced beer. It must be the Saaz hop. This isn’t as watery as the other Degroen’s beers I sampled and has a dryer finish. Its too bad they have gone out of business. Brewskies in East Stroudsburg has variety cases left if you want this one.
