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.

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.

skmikeg (1118) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Pours golden with a one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma of pils malts, grassy hops, pine, sweet malts, and some toasted corn. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, refreshing pils.

Poured light yellow with a faint white head. Aroma of grassy hops, straw, and white bread. Nice balancing malt presence. Light, crisp, and refreshing.

12 oz can. Pours deep golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy, white head and soda like carbonation. Aroma is of grassy hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and crisp. Herbal hops and pale malt nicely balanced on the palate. Finish is long and dry. Very good, enjoyable Pilz.

Draft. Slightly hazy pale yellow color, white head. Aroma of peppery straw. Taste has white pepper, hay, crisp finish. Decent.

EithCubes (5151) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Can. Nose is juicy, lightly grassy, heavily lemony citric, just beautiful noble hops squeezed into the can. Pours clear yellow-golden with lots and lots of strong carbonation and a creamy, lacing bright white head. Chalky-coating feel from the medium-full body, medium bitterness and grainy character, somewhat dry, chalky-mineral character dominates the finish and aftertaste. Soft and quenching, mostly clean but I’m still a bit reserved about the malt. On the whole: Yes! Buy me more!

Can. Pours yellow with white head. Corn and grass nosem. Lots of bread flavor, grainy, full body and crisp. Nice bitter into after. Yummy

Braudog (5949) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Can. The first couple lines of the brewer’s description is quite accurate. With a solidly base of cereal malt and a snappy hop flourish, I could imagine this served with pride in any German beer hall. (#5751, 9/30/2014)
