Penn Pilsner is really not a bad beer at all. On a par with Sam Adams Boston Lager. It’s worth $20ish per case; something you can give to your friends at a party without feeling like a complete goof. Certainly the best beer you can get at PNC Park, whilst rooting for our pathetic Buccos.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2005 Update: A good sample of this reveals some very good flavors and fine balance. Nothing stands out particularly, but it remains a fine spicy pilsner with a rich palate. Old: Not how I remember it. This one is metallic and rather unappealing. Some nice aroma and pleasant apple throughout with hints of butterscotch (but both at restrained levels). Something’s off--need another sample.

I like it as a summer beer. Smooth taste and good color. One of a few good pilsners that ive had.

Copper colored. 3cm head in a pils glass, nice lacing. Hops and mild malt aromas. Lacking on the malt flavor. Hoppy metallic taste on the finish.

Fair pilsner. Can be a little flat. Very smooth though.

Decent amber beer that goes down easily and won’t offend picky palates.

not my favorite style, but certainly a solid drinkable beer. i was pleasantly surprised when i got a bottle of this is the local bars...decent dry flavors and mild hops.
