Our flagship brand! An amber Vienna-style lager beer that is smooth, mellow and full bodied, with delicate hop aroma. Uses two-row barley malt and caramel-roasted malt. Based on founder Tom Pastorius’ favorite German bier.

Bottle shared courtesy of fatty. Poured a clear golden color with a small sized white head. Musty grassy aroma and tastes with breadiness to it. Thin and watery body.

Thanks to Fatty for this. Pours a light golden with almost no head. Aroma of tea and lighter malts. A slightly roasty malt and pilsner flavor.

Poured a golden color with a thin, white head that left sparce lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy, stale hops, some dough and faint citrus. Taste was muddy, grass that had been walked over. Tasted very dirty, though smelled slightly better.

Draft at Pennsylvanika BC. Small ivory head that was mostly lasting, fine-small sized bubbles, very nice lacing, carbonated, transparent, and a gold hue. Malty and caramel aroma. Flavor was malty, caramel and thick tasting. Smooth mouthfeel. Light-medium body.

Hmmm 69 people before me did not notice that this is not a pilsner, but in fact a Vienna Lager. Although the name says pilsner it is not. This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy mostly diminishing white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild floral malts . Its mouth feel is initially tingly mildly malty with a lingering mellow thick palate. Its flavor contained mild hops and malts favoring the hops and was tasty. An above average brew.

Pours hazy golden with a tiny head. Sharp, crisp taste with decent hop presence for a pils. A well made pils.

Bottle: Hazy golden, thin head, sudsy white, lively carbonation, slick lacing.   Pale grassy/straw nose.   Extremely soft hop presence, subtle malts, grassy.   Medium bodied and mouthfeel.   Clean exit, but not as crisp as I prefer.   Lingering grassy sweetness, soft.   Not bad.   Thanks Bill!

Ho hum. Yeah, I can taste some actual malt character. But this beer is dull and has very little flavor. The kind of beer that Bud drinkers would probably reach for if they were pretending to know something about microbrews. There’s just so much boring beer out there and this is one more bottle of it. But you know what? This is America, dammit. In almost every town across the continent we can find a store that sells the best beers in the world. Almost all of them cost less than $12 a 6 pack. What other world-class gourmet pleasures are so easily available for such little money? Folks, we don’t need to settle for boring or ’acceptable’ beer. I’m sure that this was a great beer in 1986 but the bar has been raised so much higher since then (no pun intended). Please, pass this beer up and never look back.

From the bottle this pours a deep golden color, very clear, with a tall white head. This was a very thick malty pilsner with quite a bit of caramelization of the malts. Very heavy mouthfeel for a pilsner, but lacked enough carbonation and hops to give it a crisp flavor.

Penn has a very nice aroma and a great taste, I was very impressed with this one, picked up a six pack of this and enjoyed every bottle
