COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What was lost to Prohibition can once more be found! This unique pre-Prohibition, American Pilsner was once prevalent throughout the American brewing landscape, and we’re very proud to be bringing it back. Beach Haus Classic American Pilsner is made purely of ingredients found in America, just as the early style demanded. Smooth, golden, and full-bodied -we think of it as a New American Classic.

Poured at Applebees into brewtus glass. A pale yellow with white head that was think and lasting. Aroma was light, wheats, grass and some hops. Taste was fairly light, some hops came through a mostly malt base. Lemongrass in the finish with a little bitter. Was happy to try a local brew but it didn’t leave me happy. I hear they are building their own brewery a few towns up so here’s to the future.

On tap at the hotel my company had its conference at. I must admit that i have some slight fascination with the pre-pro pils style. This, unfortunately, just came across as a rather bland and slightly unclean lager. Poured a clear yellow gold, slight head. Aroma was lightly malty, but had to search for it, mostly pale malt, hint of what I was assuming to be adjuncts. Flavor matched, the search party sent out for hops came back with only a whisper of dust. Very faint DMS. Not a disaster, but just not very enjoyable either.

Bottle, screw-top. Nose is grassy pils malt with spaghetti sauce funk and seemingly (!) related herbs (basil, oregano, etc.). Wtf? Lazy golden body with slow, mild carbonation and a white head. Taste much the same as in the aroma, some good malt mouthfeel and a little complexity but the spicy/herbal character which I presume comes from the hops is a bit of a deterrent for me. Mild citrus, little bit of husky grain. Lightly crisp, flabby and heavy body, mostly sweet with a slightly unclean finish.

Smooth, with a clean white head. Not a typical pilsner, with a bit more hops and body. Easy drinking, especially with burgers or shellfish.

Draft. Pours caramel colored with thick white head, does not linger long. Aroma is cotton candy, rose petals. Cotton candy-sweetness on the palate. Mixed bag of sweet, candied sugars. Not what I think of as a pilsner.

Pours yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is grains, malt, hops, and grass. Flavor is malt, grain, and hops. Medium to light body. Slightly bitter aftertaste. I can see this a a good summer/beach beer.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 Bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy dark straw with minimal off-white head. Nose is sweet honey-like pale malt, hops, white peppery spice. Tastes somewhat tart, with notes of pale malt, bittering hops, white peppery spice. Medium palate heft, and overall decent. Re-rate: Kicking this one down somewhat as I get ready to drain pour half a bottle.
