Light in color, this American style domes-tic lager is made using the traditional rice and corn cereal decoction method, result-ing in a beer that is clean and crisp.

Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Pale to the levels of Taylor Swift & Kristen Stewart. Straw body, exceptional clarity. Bone white head, shabby lacing left on the glass. Aroma of heavy grains, moderately sweet corn husk, light citrus zest, bready malts, lightly earthy hops, & just a hint of perfume. Flavor personifies the aroma. Fresh barley, lightly toadsted grains, lemony citrus rind, earthy grass, & a slightly dirty hop bitterness that kisses the tongue lightly. Saaz? Balancing bready & doughy malt sweetness in the back-end alongside a very modest corn flavor. Aftertaste lingerings with grain & citrus zest. Spritzy carbonation almost, quite crisp. Maybe just a touch over carbonated. Not a world beater, but a decent pilsner in any case, & much better than Kuhnhenn’s Czech Lager in my opinion.

Draft pour at the source. Pours a pale yellow with a white head of foam. Aroma is faint but has hints at corn and grain. Taste is fairly uneventful. Light in body and has medium carbonation.

Fukito (907) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 7, 2013
Clean light golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is some slight yeast and hay. Flavor is bread and some very slight hop notes bitter alternate. light palate very refreshing. A pale later without the macro skunky notes.

dmac (4677) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Growler from Unclerudy from the local swap 2.0. Poured an ugly hazed up straw body, looks like a nectar, average sized foamy white head. Aroma of cereal, grains, dry toast and some corn husk. Medium bodied with stingy carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor of grains, cereal and some dry toast along with a slight touch of dry sweetness like a touch of old dried out molasses.

Draft. Pale straw, no head, very soft aroma. Light all around, not much taste or finish. Not offensive, but not much there.

umich03jm (2761) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Slightly cloudy pale yellow color with nearly no head. Nice aroma. Sweet pale malt, cereal, bread, light hops. Taste is nice sweet pale malt, slight bitterness, smooth finish. Exactly what you want from an American Pils. A perfect example for the style.
