Golden Pilsener is a tribute to our family’s German heritage, having modeled it after the great pilsener beers of Southern Germany. Made with all malt and noble hops, this pilsener has a medium yet dry body with a slight hops bitterness that finishes clean.

Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a very nice looking glass of beer. Pale golden with a nice fluffy white head, not much lace to speak of, but that’s just fine.

The aroma is metallic & has some corn flake notes to it... It has some doughiness and a light malt character but gracious it reminds me a lot of the pilsners I pick up at random from eastern European groceries.... uh oh.

The flavor is much better than the aroma, it’s not dry but it’s not overly sweet, thankfully the breakfast cereal sweetness is pretty faint in the flavor. It’s a little bit hoppy with a light herbal bite. The corniness is pretty low, but noticeable.

I’d drink it again.

Drank two draft pints at Balducci’s in a frosty mug. A grassy, refreshing, true-to-style pilsner. Nice husky grain and noble hop impression, slight chalk, light white bread mouthfeel, spritzy carbonation. Perhaps a small percentage of corn adjunct, but not in a flawed way. Delicious with St. Louis-style pizza.

Smells a bit sweet. Corn and wheat. Sweet and mild grains. Tastes actually better and better as I drink it. Not great but alright. Decent for a whatever pilsner.

Sampled at the 2012 Westport Brewfest. It poured a clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma was notes of corn, some grass, bread, yeast and hints of honey and floral hops. The taste was much of the same with notes of roasted corn, yeast and bread.

Aroma is bread, yeast and a noticeable German hop bite. The flavor is citrus, bread and a dry hop bite in the finish. Pretty good.

Pous straw yellow with a thin white white head. Subtle hop aroma. Taste is very clean and tastes great. There is a breadiness in the finish. Medium carbonation. Exactly what to expect from the style. A straight shooting well made pilsner.

12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy golden yellow with 2 fingers of white head. Heavy aroma of hops and some light grain. Taste is lightly bitter. Kinda skunky. Nice hop taste though. Medium bodied with a thick yet slick texture. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, not bad. Kinda pricey for an average beer though. I would drink it again, if I could find it for 6 bucks per 6er instead of 10.
