Spitting in the eye of convention, Johhny Rawton Pils is an obnoxiously American Pilsner beer. Gobs of Palisade hops deliver 50 IBU’s 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!

Tmoney99 (13244) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Draft at Trolley Stop. Poured clear yellow amber color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium sour citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body. Heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

argo0 (13021) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2007
(draft, Gaithersburg) White head with nice lacing atop crystal clear straw body. Aroma is moderately sweet, apple, honey, some spice/grass, light grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet, grassy, some grapefruit/earthy, light honey, apple. Light-medium body, some crispness, light duskiness, acidity, very drinkable. This is great! I’d like to do a side-by-side with Prima Pils.

JoeMcPhee (9268) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2007
1L growler from New Beer Distributors. Very pale orange-golden colour with a thick white head. The aroma shows great fresh zesty hop aroma. There is also a soft fresh maltiness. A touch of honey and lemony citrus. Lightly sweet on the back of the palate. Some lingering sweetness and a lovely herbal hop flavour on the back. Very tasty pils.

3fourths (9057) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Draft pour at the Brickskellar in DC, where they incorrectly told me that this was the same beer as Golden Era. No, it’s 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 it’s 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.

nimbleprop (7176) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 16, 2007
On draft at the DFH Alehouse in Falls Church, VA. Poured a transparent, straw yellow with a one finger white head. Smelled of grass, slight malt and mild citrus. Flavor was malty, spicy from both hops and malt, grassy and mild. Very drinkable. Finish held the flavor on the palate, but very watery. Pretty good Pils, won’t bowl you over but pleasant and appealing.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 16, 2008
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.

Beerman6686 (6172) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2008
POured a clear bright yellow color with an off white head. Aroma was of lots of grass, some mild german hops, and light sweet malts. Flavor was really grassy, not asmuch of the sweetness showed, but at least there was a bit of hops to add some flavor.

egajdzis (6007) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Poured a clear golden color with a medium sized, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of light pine, floral hops, toffee malts, dough, cereal and a bit of citrus fruits. Taste of dough, toffee malts, citrus fruits, bread, grass, a bit of lemon, and medium bitterness in the finish.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2008 On the beer menu, this was "cleverly" misspelled as "Johnny Rotten." Oh, well. It’s 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. I’d repeat it, but wouldn’t go far out of my way for it.
