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

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2007
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).

Dogbrick (7667) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2007
On draught at Gallo’s Tap Room in Columbus: Pours yellow-gold with a thin white head that lasts awhile. Thin rings of lacing. Grassy hops aroma with hints of malt. Light, dry body with floral hops and earthy malt flavors. The finish is somewhat bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. While not normally one of my favorite styles, I found this Pils rather enjoyable.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Sampled on draft at Buffalo Wild Wings in Greensburg PA this beer poured a medium golden color with a small fluffy white head. The aroma was sour, tangy malts and light, crisp floral hops. The flavor was sour dry malts with a moderate floral hop presence. The finish was dry and hoppy. Not bad.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Pint on tap at Brews Cafe in Granville Ohio - Pours golden with a short white head that faded pretty quick. Aromas of noble hops mostly and a little grain. Flavor is mostly grains. A touch of grassy hops, and some yeast. Palate leans to the watery side and it seems a little undercarbonated for a pils. Honestly this was a touch disappointing.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Draft at Vintage Estate Wine. Clear golden with medium head. Fair lacing. Taste is sweet malt and a bit of apricot with a nice bitterness throughout. Light body.

cheap (3973) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2007
On tap at the VIntage Estates in Boardman, thanks Nits. Is this new? Only 15 ratings? Looks like the ubiquitous pale yellow american lager. Has a very nice creamy head. A little yeasty in its smell and perhaps I do detect a bit of lake erie fishyness in there. maybe it even has a little alky olfactory hit too. The first taste is a little bitter but not terribly. Seems stronger in the alky content, more so than other pils I’ve had. Finish has some hopp personality, not like and IPA, but getting close. Is there such a thing as impy pils? Leaves a medium bitter feeling on the back of the throat that lasts for a short time. Only half as good as Bavik Premium Pils.

aracauna (3053) - Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Pours a clear gold with a typical white head. The aroma is peppery and slightly musky with hops. This is a pleasantly hoppy pils with a good dry malt backing it up. Good pils.

Jvittorio4187 (255) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2007
Had this on tap. (duh) Pours a claer gold with a one finger head with retention. On the nose little bit of lemon and yeast? Taste is very crisp and clean, very refreshing. All I can say is it’s a pilsener.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2007 It’s BACK (but now Prohibtion Pilsner)! On tap at The Station, Springfield, OH. Delicious Pils, with a hint of corn sweetness and body (only when fully warmed) which adds some heft. Great grassiness and dryness at the end (a little sticky there). Hoppiness of drying Saaz in abundance (40 IBU). I love this beer -so drinkable, great introduction to Noble hops, to the whole tradition of Classic American Pilsner.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2007
Clear golden pour small white head. This was a little too thin and watery for me the malts just weren’t there slight toasted and/or biscuit but nothing stood out. Grassy and floral hops lending a big bitterness but not really having the crispness I was expecting. I guess they drank this in the prohibition days?
