Dacrza (595) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2015
DATE TASTED: May 7, 2015... GLASSWARE: Hennepin pokal... OCCASION: a good Thursday night... APPEARANCE: thin, creamy white head settles reasonably on a golden amber body with lively effervescence; clear as crystal;.. AROMA: caramel malts meld with a sugary, bready base and what purports to be Centennial hops; floral and alluring...PALATE: dry, medium-bodied, and smooth, with some late character in the finish... TASTE: strong caramel luster with some roasted malt presence; sharp Saaz cuts through the malt strength--a good balance, with some astringency... OVERALL: a flagship! This reads more as a lager than a pilsener, save for the Saaz; a solid, reasonably favorable drink that could be enjoyed in multiple venues and moments...

The aroma is of bread and malt. The taste is watery but also of the pilsner malt. Okay bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the upper part of the mouth to a weak moment. For watery beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

ordybill (537) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a strong malt aroma, not bad. Appearance- A dark golden to copper color with a very small white head. Taste- Has a decent grain and malt flavor with no bad aftertaste. Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with mild carbonation. Has a nice semi-dry finish. Overall- A nice Vienna Lager, I came across this by accident and if I see it being served I would order it again.

Drjohnrock (545) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club, tasted on February 28, 2014. Moderate aroma of pale lager vs. amber lager, sweet initial mouthfeel followed by bitter astringent finish. Not all that impressed by this one.

Maxbier (650) - Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Hazy dark copper color, off-white head. Aroma is pilsner-y sweet malt. Malty, caramel, some white-pepper, some hop for balance, not a bad lager, but more like an amber lager than a pilsner... oops- look at that; its called Penn Pilsner but the style is amber lager! A bit misleading name, but tastes good.

MadRobin (2287) - Silver Spring, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Poured 12 oz. from bottle. Clear, amber-gold with hardly any head and a mere modicum of lacing. Aroma of caramel, butter, toffee, bread and light fruit. Taste of grain, caramel, corn, butter, mild floral hops and light fruit. Medium body low/medium carbonization. Better than a macro, but still not a below average pilsener. It's not "crisp" and I'm having trouble getting past the buttered corn flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
