Our first lager produced with the 20 bbl brewhouse. This pilsner is a clear golden color. Four additions of Saaz hops lend a spicy-floral hop component.

Up in the danger zone: great grassy aroma; smooth, slightly sweet taste; snappy carbonation; and an easy finish. One could easily drink several painlessly.

(can) Pours a semi-hazy light yellow color with a voluminous white head that retains really well. Getting a heavy dose of pils malt in the nose, and it’s more on the doughy stripe than the crackery side of things. Little hint of honey and an abundant amount of lemon zest. Oddly enough, there’s a little hint of tropical fruit present in this that reminds me of tangerine or orange. It smells a bit like the orange colored Starburst and is heavily accented after you swirl the glass. Flavor contains more of that sweet bread dough quality, with a glimmer of honey and a slight mineral character that’s not nearly present enough to shear off the malty sweetness. There’s a little hint of the orange I picked up in the aroma, but it serves as a minor blip on the sensory radar screen. Everything tastes a bit muddled here, which is not a quality I look for in a good pils. Mouthfeel is medium and carb is appropriate. Overall, not a bad beer by any means, but this one will not be particularly memorable.

This is a really well made pilsner. The hops are not massively prominent but give up enough to keep this interesting. Light bodied with well balanced carbonation. Does not leave a sickly corn taste like many other lager/pils beers. Easy to drink and good for those days where you need a refreshing, toned down beer to enjoy.

Rated based on notes taken 22 Jun 2012 -- This is a great simple pilsner. A little lacking in the hop department, but overall I could drink this all friggin’ day.

Aroma: Very light aroma; a whiff of grain and grass, not much else. Appearance: Light yellow pour with a skin of white head. Flavor: Crackery malts up front; saaz comes off more grassy/herbal than noble; has a lingering moderate grassiness toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, very soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Found this to be kinda limp, and I love Pilsner beer. Saaz felt odd to me here.

Light yellow color, aroma is lost on me. Taste is mostly yeast, lemon and sweet malt. This seems more like a Belgian than a pilsner to me. Not sure I’m going to actually finish it.

Tap at Over The Bar, South Side, Pittsburgh. Appears as a nice yellow color with a very nice balance of hops and flavor. Quite refreshing.

Great American-style pilsner. Earthy spicy hop aroma with subtle honey-like malt aroma. Pale Straw with a lasting white head. Heavily carbonated. Heavy carbonic acid with subtle pilsner malt and crisp and spicy hop flavor. Great for poolside.

Can from Woodmans in the Falls, on the singles rack and realized 1. it is summer and 2. I’ve never rated. Pours a fairly pale yellow with a white head. Some spotty lace. Aroma has light fruit and graham crackers, with possible pine. Taste is of sweet golden malt, light breading and some fruit. Light bodied and very clean. Finishes short and sweet. Tasty enough to have again in a pinch. Just light on everything. 13.5
