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!”

Had this at the pub. Boy, well it was in a glass. Quite liquid as I can tell. It was also wet. As you can tell there isn’t much to say about this. Yes, it’s a beer. Yes, it tastes like a bad, bad pilsner. Let’s say there wasn’t anything completely horrible about this, but if someone just poured a glass of Coors Light I wouldn’t have known the difference.

Sample at pub. Corn aroma. Yellow body with white head. Bitter flavor and that kind gave me a bitter beer face.

ElGaucho (2200) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Small sample out of buddy’s glass. MGD aroma. Not much head or lace. Pale gold color. Doughy mouthfeel with hops evident at back of tongue. A really solid pils.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Clear pale yellow in color. Very light with a splotched white head. Aroma is skunky and raw potatoes, and some hop bouquet. Creamy, but light. Not enough hopping for pils distinction. More like a helles. Lemony and bready. Very bright feel on the palate. Like an amplified MGD.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Light gold color with a grassy smell and some dark bread. The taste is full with subtle celery and black pepper spice. There is also some bread crust. This package comes together nicely. This is probably the best lager I ever had at a brewpub.

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Clear golden straw color with an okay head. Clean yeasty aroma with a hint of hops. Nice bitterness, not much malt or hop flavor, yeast flavor is nice. Could use more body. A realy nice German Pils.

Light light Gold Coloring. One of the more watery / less flavorfull beers on the line. ahhh..pick something else while you’re at the Great Dane.

No real defination to this beer, it looks almost like water. There was at least some taste, but not an abundence of it. Not a top beer.

Depending on my mood, I often prefer this one over the Peck’s, since it does more with less, as in hopiness. The malt is a little too large and the carbonation too little for a German pils. It is really more of a helles. But all the same I think it is an excellent beer, that is often overlooked because of the huge selection at the Dane.

Light, fruity, some nice ending bitterness, good color and lacing in the glass, hints of pepper and spice. Slightly better than the Pecks Pils I thought.
