COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

argo0 (11443) - 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! Iíd like to do a side-by-side with Prima Pils.

Tmoney99 (10551) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - 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 (7976) - 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, 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.

Cletus (6354) - 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.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2008
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.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2008
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.

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.

Growler courtesy of mday. Served in a tulip. Pours a very hazy yellowish-golden color with a big fluffy white head and a good amount of lacing. Very hazy throughout. Kind of strange for the style, but Iím guessing Dogfish didnít really intend this to be just an American Pale Lager, so Iím going to go with it looks good. The nose is pretty nice with some bright citrus aroma and a bit of mild bready sweetness. Good hops. The taste lets back a bit from that but the combination of citrus and bitterness is quite nice. A good tone of bitterness throughout. Body is fairly light and this is quite drinkable. Solid beer. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 01-20-2011
