Be warned! This is a very malty, copper-colored, hoppy pilsener that is in no way related to what you are likely expecting. It's a veritable malt-fest.

Bottled. For a pilsener this was pretty good. Had a nice malty flavor. Poured a nice copper color.

The best of the PA beers imo but thats not saying much. You won't see me turning down an ice cold bottle of it though.

Bright gold, very pretty. Nose is sugary and a bit hoppy. Overly sweet in the flavor, tastes like sugar was added to the mix. Decent hoppy bite at the end.

Had this beer at the brewery and shipped to me in bottels. Excellent pilz, clean finish.

Medium amber color. Small head. Aroma is malty and slightly sweet. A medium bodied pilsner. Darker colored and very malty and hoppy for a pilsner. Perhaps it supposed to be a cross between a Pilsner and an amber? Malts are nutty and slightly sweet. Hops are citrusy. Touch of orangish flavor in the taste. I’m not sure what this beer is supposed to be, it not a pilsner and not an amber or Vienna. Its somewhere between the two and gets sort of lost somewhere along the way. Its drinkable but lacks any sort of identity. Mouthfeel is round. Finish is dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

An outstanding beer. Kudos to the brewers on this one. Only negative is a slight aftertaste, but it is not significant. A very good beer.

A nice tasting and looking beer. Poured with a mild fluffy head similar to a microbrewed pilsner. Much more flavorful than your typical mass produced pilsner. Clear dark golden color makes you wanting to try a taste. It doesn't disappoint. Not overly complex, but very tasty nontheless.

Malty - sweet and malty, medium bodied and malty. Finish was sweet and malty, with a little hops. Could've used some hops in this - it needs to be crisper and have a cleaner finish. That's not to say it's not drinkable though, it would be a fine "Lawn-Mowin'Beer".

Good pilsner, but flavor a bit thinner than I'm used to. The malt tastes a bit too roasted, or maybe not enough hops?
