Crisp, hoppy and light this pils is loaded with Noble Hop flavor and is the perfect summer thirst quencher.

Draft at Dilly Deli. Man - such a low average ranking. I am not a huge pilsener fan but this was a hearty pils. Not at all a thin, watery, fizzy beer but a pilsener of more substance. Clear, bright and golden. A bit thicker than many pils that I have tried. A nice natural, light citrus, malty flavor with a very clean, refreshing finish. Very nice. Ranks up there with Victory Prima Pils. My full rec.

On tap @ Dilly Deli: Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma, light bready malts, some floral hop notes. Flavor, bready malts, floral, and lightly spicy hops. A soft sweetness to it, very refreshing beer. Quite nice.

Nate (4114) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Draught at Bocktown. Crisp hoppy aroma, beany, with soft grainy malt sweetness. Mild aroma. Golden yellow clear with thin white lacing head. Soft watery body with mild carbonation. Starts with beany, grassy hops. Light grain sweetness with a mild bitter finish. After has light bitter graininess. Refreshing but quite crisp.

6/20/2007: Great Lakes Prohibition Pils is a beautiful clear straw color with a dense, foamy, white head that leaves lots of intricate, foamy lacing made of fine bubbles. The unique aroma is kind of musty with a slight sourness to it. The flavor is crisp and slightly mustly as well with a mild to moderate spicy, grassy, and peppery hoppiness that stays with you. The medium-light body matches the flavors and style well. This is a very interesting interpretation of a Pils. It is different and reminds me more of a farmhouse-style ale...

Draught sample at Dilly Deli. Thanks Peanut! Rating #25 for this beer...

[377-20070630] Tap @ Great Lakes (Cleveland, OH). Light petrol aroma. Clear, pale yellow body with a long-lasting foamy white head. Earthy flavour has sweet aftertaste. Light-medium body. Bland-esque.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Draft at the Riverside in Kent, OH on 7/3/07. Crystal clear yellow gold under a small white head. Aroma has fresh grain, grass, and the expected floral character offered up by the Noble hops. Nice clean mouthfeel with a light body and moderate effervescence. There is a good balance between a light malty sweetness and a refreshing and lasting bitterness. This is a good quality Pils.

jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Light yellow body, with a small white head. Very floral (Saaz?) hops in the aroma. Flavour is milk with the floral hops of the aroma the dominant flavour. Light bitterness, and very light cheesy notes mixed with the floral of the hops. Average palate. Decent, but is not a sufficiently good example to wow me in a style I don’t care much for.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 Draught @ Dilly Deli in Cincinnati. Pours a clear gloden color with a small white head. The aroma was mainly grassy hops. The flavor is much of the same. Decent bitterness, but not much else going on. Mouthfeel is thin and watery, low carbonation. Thanks, but I wouldn’t have this again.

On tap 6/29/07. Crystal clear golden color with decent enough head. Nice pilsner-y aroma. Flavor starts out on the bitter side and meanders slowly towards an almost cake batter sweetness. Reminds me a lot of their Dortmunder Gold, only with more hops. Decent enough, though nothing compared to the PA pils trifecta (Prima, Sunshine, Pikeland).
