COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As opposed to its bigger Czech cousin Peck’s Pilsner, our German Pils is a traditional German-style brau. The renowned German Hallertau Mittelfruh hop and pilsner malt produce a lighter-bodied pils that finishes crisp yet soft. So authentic and drinkable, it cries “Bring on the liters!”

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2007
On tap at the Great Dane Brew Pub (Downtown Madison Location). Poured a lighter and clear yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas and tastes of grassiness and some spices. Tastes, as was the body, thin and on the watery side.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 18, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Clear golden color with a thin white head and minimal lacing. Light fruity plum aroma. Tasted of noble hops, and light cereal grain. Dry and crisp with subdued hop bitterness.

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - JAN 7, 2007
On tap.
Clear pale gold, very little head and no lacing. Dry, crisp aroma with some fruity/floral hop notes. Flavor is a clean, crisp, bitter-hop affair with a bit of grassy-sour and fruity tones.Medium-light body with surprisingly lively, tingly palate considering how little head it produced. A good, clean no-frills pilsner that achieves its objective.

troyc (2422) - Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2006
(Tap) Pours a clear golden color with a decent white head. Typical German pilsner taste. Mild hops and malts, with a dry palate. Slight metallic aftertaste as well. Not too bad though.

Ughsmash (7097) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2006
On tap at the Great Dane, Madison. Poured clear, bright light golden with a splotchy cap of white head. Nose was of sweet fruits and corn, with some wet hay and more veggies... blech. Sweet pils malts and sour banana at the flavor core.. alcohol should not have been present at the back end of this lighter brew. Highly-carbonated with sharp alcohol notes and ugly veggies. I hope this was just a bad batch.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2006
On-tap at the brewpub: A lighter medium shade of hay. Clear bodied. Frothy white foam of medium size dawns the top well and lasts for good length. Laces the glass in all kinds of spotty sheeting. Aroma is well spiced with that certain German hopped spice, some partial dried floralness slimmed with grass and bready yeast. Taste doesn’t disappoint; solid, crisp, broad flavors of dried bread, zippy German hop spice of dry grasses and herbs, yet stays thirsty and wet with a tender backing of doughy bread malt. Lasting, tender finish with some of the spicy hops. Firm, medium body for a Pilsner. Very well done. Crisp, eager, with a fun balance of hoppy spice, bready malt; dryness and quick fullness. The dryness is immaculately placed along a very foregiving wet play of slick smoothness. A solid Pils. Sessionable by the growler and then some.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Medium copper/amber color. Clear. White creamy head. Germal bitter hops with a fresh grass taste and some sweet doughy malt. Light perfume in aroma. Nice pilsener.

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2006
Light malt aroma, some corn-like notes and a touch of grassiness. Clear golder-yellow and a bright white head. Nice, light flavor: crisp malt that has a sourness to it that is very nice and bready with a hint of grassiness in the finish. Light body, weird almost creamy mouthfeel with a dry-ish finish.

1FastSTi (3334) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Pours to a clear golden body with a rocky white head that disapates to a thin film. Visible carbonation. The aroma is one of the first G.D. brews to be obvious and easy to smell. It has nice floral hops and is quite smooth atop the light malted corn body. The flavor is really nice. Perhaps one of the best in the style. Floral hops morph into a nice smooth, toasted grain. The palate is refreshing and velvety. Medium-light bodied. This is a great beer for the style.
