COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Pilsner is assertively hopped with Hallertau and Tettnanger noble hops and has a cracker-like malt backbone that finishes crisp and dry coming in at 4.8% ABV, which makes this one highly drinkable (which is the point, duh). We named this beer in honor of the Trauger family of Bucks County who came to America in 1747 and were among some of the earliest German immigrants to the area. In 1767 Christen and Henry Trauger purchased two farmsteads in Nockamixon Township and have been a part of the fabric of this county, state, and country ever since. Five generations and 6847 family members later our Head Brewer somehow got lucky enough to be a small leaf of that family tree, and this is our way of looking back not only on that history here in this country, but also our family’s history dating back to Germany. Ironically enough, the Trauger family’s German heritage predates the introduction and widespread popularity of the Pils style, but nonetheless, this beer is brewed and named in their honor.

Beerathon (1560) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2015
This is what I refer to as a crushable beer. Clean crisp palate with nice amount of hops goes. Refreshing and well done.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2015
This beer poured a golden color with a medium sized white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was a touch skunky with moderate perfume. The flavor was moderate perfume. Faint skunk and a bit of fruit. Medium length finish. Medium body. Not good.

Clear golden yellow pour with a thin white head and lots of sticky lacing .... Aroma of floral hops, caramel malts and some biscuity malts .... Taste is of floral hops, light dry spicy hop, cracker/biscuity malts and caramel malts .... Very crisp and clean pils with good body .... Has a dry light bitter hop bite in the finish..... Great simple tasty lawnmower brew

Can from Brian via dmac… clear yellow color with the pils malt, grass and hops. Body is on point for the style, light crisp and dry texture. Germen hop rightup front with the bready malt in support of the hops. True in style.

12oz can that I won from dmac on free beer week. Thanks, Dave! Pours yellow gold with an off white head. Aroma is lemon, cracker, grass. Flavor follows, crisp and dry with lingering grassy bitterness. I’m not a big Pilsner fan, but this is a solid example.
