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!”

on tap at great dane, sampled next to their czech pils (Pecks) and this didn’t come close, a nice hallertau hop character but it was more underplayed than the saaz in Pecks, with a body that isn’t near as full. i still enjoyed this but i would have to choose Pecks over this easy.

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.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Draft at Great Dane Downtown. Pours a pale yellow with white head. Nose is noble and clean, sweet pils and herbal HM hops. On taste, clean and crisp bitter hop note to compliment the clean pils malt. Mostly clean and well made, just no umph. Decent.

1FastSTi (3333) - 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.

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.

iowaherkeye (2690) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - OCT 14, 2010
6/21/2008. Draught at the brewpub. Clear straw with a one finger white head, faded to a thick film before long. Aroma has hints of floral hops, minimal sulfur, some cracker malts. Stronger malt profile in the flavor with plenty of balance from the light hops. Bitterness peaked at a 3, finish is dry. Moderate to high carbonation with a light body. Very sessionable.

madvike (2657) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 29, 2009
On tap at downtown location - This wasn’t too bad--a lot better than I expected. Pours clear straw yellow with barely a head. Smells fruity, with bread and honey notes. Taste is mild malt, bread, yeast. It’s over-carbonated, but once it warmed a bit it calmed down. I wouldn’t mind drinking this on a hot day.

willblake (2645) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2010
20100606 tap at downtown location. Perfectly refreshing, not flawed with the usual bp pils pitfalls, but not at all hoppy or interesting enough to get me excited about it. That said, the world would be a better place if every neighborhood had a solid bp pils like this one.

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

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2009
On tap at the Wausau MN Great Dane as "George Ruder’s" german pils. A clear yellow color with white head. Faint grassy aroma with mild hops and more of the same in the body, but with a bready taste and a bit of caramel malt in the finish.
