On tap at the brewpub, Escanaba. Clear straw body, thin tight off-white head. Floral nose with notes of clover honey. Body with light fruit (pear), honey, and grassy bitterness, somewhat tangy and phenolic. Not very impressive.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at the Wausau brewpub location as "Piva Bohemian Pilsner." Pours a clear golden pale brew with a slowly dissolving white head that leaves behind some excellent lacing and good retention with plenty of carbonation bubbles. Aroma of light pear and apple juice fruit, grassy hops, and some mild earthy spice. Taste is light to medium bodied, plenty of carbonation with flavors of light golden grain malt, some grassy hops with a touch of medicinal bitterness. Finish is semi-dry, mild bitterness that slowly disappears.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tried as Panther Pils in Cranberry. Pours a golden orange color with very little head. I got a little bit of hops and sweetness in the nose, but the person next to me was smoking, so it was difficult to discern. Had kind of an earthiness to the nose. It tasted exactly how it smelled: earthy hops with just a touch of sweetness. Had a lot of carbonation, but lacked much body. I’m not a fan of pilsners so this might be why I rated so low.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Cranberry as the Panther Pils. Slight fruity aroma. Ubiquitous aamerican pale yellow beer color and appearance. Has that typical pils bite. Very little carbonation. Overall a decent pilsner with a little personality. Finish is relatively clean and fresh with a short pils bite that fades rapidly.

12/27/07 - Winter Road Trip ’07 - Draft Sample in Cranberry as Panther Pils. Pours yellow-orange with little head. Slight lacing. Malt nose, caramel, touch of hops. Barely discernible from sample. Caramel and toffee notes, dry bitterness and slight Earthy hop flavor. Pretty smooth beer, thin and lacking in the body department, much like Calista Flockhart. Bready notes, some biscuit. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap in Cranberry as Panther Pils. Noble hops aroma, mild pils malt with characteristic sweet grain nose. Meium gold-amber clear with thin white head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with acidic beany tang, pils malt, and strong floral noble hops. Classic European style lager, not quite a German pils. Acidic carbonic burn on the tongue.

Not real impressed with this beer. It’s the clostest thing to a maro brew on their menu, which means it’s made for the masses rather then individual tastes. Not bad, but nothing special

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Had this one on draught in Wausau, Wisconsin. Pale yellow in color, clear and bubbly, this one tastes only slightly better than your average american macrobrew, with corn and rice in the nose and no taste. This is why I can’t stand pilseners.

Left me wanting a bit more. Kind of bitter, strong. Golden, not much froth. I brought my drink up to the grill area, warmed it up a bit too fast. By the time my steak was done, this pils was rather warm, my fault.
