COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The most renowned brewery in 19th-century New Albany was owned by Paul Reising, a German immigrant who set up shop at the corner of Spring and West Second. Like other continentally trained brewers in America, Reising found it necessary to adapt Old World recipes to New World ingredients. Expensive imported German hops were reserved for aroma and flavor, while less delicate homegrown varieties provided the bittering. American six-row barley replaced European two-row, and some corn was thrown in for good measure. The result was your great-grandfather’s pilsner. 6-row malt and corn (decoction mash); Fuggles, East Kent Golding and Hallertau hops; German lager or California Common yeast. O.G. 1072

A fine pre-prohibition hoppy pilsner. Slightly hazing yellow packed with small carbonation bubbles. Smells slightly sweet like fresh cut fields.Clean clear taste of pilsner with tangy bitterness to cleanse the palate. The hops hangs on long enough to want you to drink more. The corn adjuct is only discernable to the most sensitve tastes. I can keep drinking them well past what I should.

(draft) I’d never call myself a pilsner fan, so I didn’t have great expectations for this beer. Having said that, this just wasn’t very good. A little citrusy, and a little bit of some odd flavor that I cannot pin down. Must be the corn. Hey, at least I tried it.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAR 14, 2004
Poured yellow with thin white head. Apple-ish aroma. Nicely hopped with more apple in the flavor. Finishes quite dry with burning carbonation. A nice, tasty pilsner reminiscent of some Australian beers with the apple taste. Good

A ton of wheat, rye and lemon flavors. Mostly citrus aroma. Unfiltered and seems stronger than 5.9%. A refreshing, enjoyable session brew. I think that "snappy" is the adjective that describes it the best.

Draft - this is based on a "pre-prohibition" pilsener. It is a pretty big one, but all of their brews are. Slight corn sweetness in the nose and flavor. Pretty standard pilsener appearance. Pretty good.
