COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aged in Corsair Distillery Barrel Aged Gin barrel (they age a spiced rum in the oak barrel first, then age their standard gin in the used rum barrel to produce their barrel aged Gin. The barrel was still full of the loose spices they spice their rum with when we put Pony in it!)

15 Gallon Barrel, less than a week aging, blended back with regular Pony Pils

rxeight (2159) - Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2015
On draft at the brewery taproom. Aroma is a bit of sweet lemon, juniper. really gives off a good gin and tonic flavor. Long lingering smooth gin flavor. Really enjoyable and refreshing. Itís unique, and at this point itís been a long time since Iíve had something this unique and enjoyable.

Clear yellow, light white. Spruce, light grain. Slightly bitter, malty sweetness. Lightish effervescent body. Quick finish. Good.

ryecatcher (1169) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2015
Howler from HABC. Hazy, pale straw golden-yellow pour, frothy white head with very nice retention. Nose is faint juniper, earth, citrus peel, botanicals, wood. Mouth is medium bodied, relatively dry, citrus, mild bitterness underpinning the gin barrelly goodness that is present but not overpowering a Pilsner base... and to be honest, while Iím not the biggest fan of the base beer by itself, this is very, very nice. Way crushable. SlŠinte!

On tap at FoBAB. Loved this shit. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Aromas of lemon lime pine spices. Easy drinking. Light sweetness.

Pailhead (6144) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of light-moderate grass, straw, mild honey, and hints of pine. Itís a mostly transparent dull gold with a touch of haze. It has a one finger white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with light cereal and a hint of honey. The finish has light-moderate grass, light citrus, and a touch of pine. Itís light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, there some mild pine notes, but I donít think as much as Iíd expect from a gin barrel aged Pilsner. Regardless, itís a solid Pilsner.

smcolw (616) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Golden color with a touch of haze. Nearly no head. No lace. Soft and sweet pale malt aroma. Gentle but very present. Light floral hop far back in the background. Flavor mimics the smell except that I detect a touch of juniper berry in the swallow. This blends nicely with noble hop. This is subtle but extraordinarily complex beer. Rich body with generous carbonation. Easy to drink despite the high ABV (10%, according to the menu).

cbfobes (2846) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2015
On tap at 2014 GTMW, side note, I love gin, if Iím not drinking a beer, itís a gin and tonic, well maybe a nice bourbon too, getting off track. Pours a hazy yellow with a thin head, aroma has a good amount of the juniper berries and some oak, pretty much over takes everything on the nose, the flavor has a strong gin front end with a little bit of booze in the finish, good stuff.
