Part of the sampler at the Wayne, PA location. Not being a pils person. This one wasn't bad. Actually had a little malty falvor.

Golden clear color, slightly sweet, lively carbonation make this Pilsner very drinkable. You could possibly mistake this for a Czech brewed Pilsner. It was that good.

Nice gold color that struggles towards peach. The saaz hops are immediate noticable in the aroma. Lots of yeast and hop derived spiciness in this bad lad. Nice, generous, grassy grain tones. This is exactly what a pilsner should be ... crisp, spicy, and refreshing.

Very clean & refreshing pilsener beer, golden in color, nice soft lacy head, just the right about of hops to give the brew a good spicy zing to it but wasnít too overpowering like a lot of other pilseners, nicely balanced, dry aftertaste
