Spitting in the eye of convention, Johhny Rawton Pils is an obnoxiously American Pilsner beer. Gobs of Palisade hops deliver 50 IBUís of pure American excess to your senses. American Pilsner malt brings a bit of order to the riotous hop character. Rock on with Johnny Rawton!

Pours yellow with a generous white head. Smells of dry malt, lots of peppery hints, some resiny hints. Tastes lightly bitter and spicy with a dry malty finish. Enjoyable.

Draft at the brewery in DE. Pours a light yellow orange body. DFH hops the shit out of it. I more or less have a number to go on.

ok fantastic, up there with the big boys of Italy. Not that obnoxious. Well hopped in the way you would expect grapefruit and bitter in the finish. A bit floral by lacking the grass notes i so love in pill, awesome none the less.

Solid beer! Yellow golen color. Typical dogfish hop.. Nose is clean, grass, notes of citrus hops. Flavor is clean, bitter, floral hop. Bitter lingering caboose.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2008
Draft @ papago. Came a nice clear golden with medium white head. Aroma was hoppy, slightly malty, but overall quite light. Flavor is plenty malty leading to a decently bitter and fresh hoppy ending. No surprises here, I enjoyed this as a break between some of the heavier stuff I had during the afternoon and it paired well with the pizza.

Rusty (1546) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 6, 2008
On tap @Dogfish Off-Centered Experience @Papago Brewing in Scottsdale AZ. Pours a nice clear yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of hops, malt a little yeast. Big taste in this pilsner, lots of hop bitterness. Lots of taste in a not so big beer.

Lightly roasted caramel maltiness with light earthy hop bite. This pilsener is just average...a good easy drinker, but nothing remarkable in any way.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2008 On the beer menu, this was "cleverly" misspelled as "Johnny Rotten." Oh, well. Itís a sessionable lager having a clear yellow body with plently of bubbles and a frothy head that sheeted the glass with lace. The aroma seemed a bit subdued, some sweet pale malts and a light grassy hoppiness. The hops increased in the flavor adding a solid bittering to the beer. Iíd repeat it, but wouldnít go far out of my way for it.

On tap at RFD, D.C. Wasnít really the weather for it but I had to take the chance to try this one. Golden pour, quite fluffy head and a pretty lustrous looking body. Very creamy mouthfeel, not quite as sharp and crisp as I expect from a pils (more like the body of a tripel I guess). Decent malting, tending towards the fruity side, and certainly some hops in there (nothing nearly like DFH suggests though). All in all, pretty average.

Draft pour at the Brickskellar in DC, where they incorrectly told me that this was the same beer as Golden Era. No, itís not, guys. Clear medium dark yellow or gold colored body with a medium sized thick white head. Crisp and fresh, with a moderately presence of yeast but itís mostly clean, lightly pillowy and not at all muddying. Fresh, fluffy, light, clean tasting, lightly dry on the back, moderately sweet, and then turning a small bit bitter with a husky grain flavor, but never too forward or strong. A solid pils all around.
