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!”

Sample from the Great Dane pub at Hilldale. Clear light golden with minimal head. Very much a light beer or as my friend stated "this tastes like dirty water." I couldn’t even finish the sample.

RobertDale (3345) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 24, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Comes a clear light gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and grass. Taste is malt, grain, grass, and florals. Decent enough.

BVery (5983) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Tap at the brewpub in Wausau. Clear pale golden pour with a smaller spotty white head. Nose is very faint. Crisp palate but just mild cream / grain here. Dull.

mrjaxson (283) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 12, 2012
A snappy pils with more hoppy bitterness than malty sweetness. A bit of caramel and, hmmmm, maybe lemon on the aroma. Enjoyed on tap with the kick-butt meatloaf at the original Great Dane.

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Pour is gold with a white head. Aroma shows pale malt and grassy hops. Flavor shows pretty much the same with maybe a touch of citrus hiding in the background. Overall body is light, crisp, and finishes with light bitterness. Nothing offensive, just not very interesting.

Lubiere (9789) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2012
A golden lager with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, a light acidic malt with light German hops. In mouth, a nice crisp malt with German hopping, boring. On tap at Madison airport location, Jan 22 2012.

dekester1 (309) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 18, 2011
On tap at the Wausau GD. Served a mid gold with a nice frothy head that faded slowly to a nice lacing. Aroma was of malt and hops. Taste was similar with Pilsner-like hop predominance but mild, not bitter, in nature. The mouth was decent. Overall, a decent pilsner.

Sammy (8406) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2011
On tap at the downtown brewpub. Neutral aroma, light coloured but noticeably lacey. A decent drinker, with a mild bitterness as denoted by 13 IBU. Serviceable sessionable, at 5.4% abv.

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2011
8/14/11. On tap in the Madison airport. Very clear light golden pour with a small fluffy white head and plenty of lacing. Subtle aroma of graininess with a touch of earthy hop. Biting flavor of pilsner grain and earthy hops. Not bad!
