Poured golden, amber, clear, minimal head. Aroma is sweet with caramel. Taste light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, lively, clean finish easy to drink.

Bottle from DiarmaidBHK - pours a clear old gold with a white head, some lacing. Boring.

DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours a pale amber with some head. Cereal nose with very subdued hops. Coppery taste throughout the bottle detracts from what is otherwise a decent session beer.

Scrapersnbeer (1492) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Mild pils-ish aroma of crackers and flatbread. Pretty grainy. Light orange, good initial head followed by lace. Tastes sweet in a way where malt is stressed while hops could be used. Given that, it’s certainly more Vienna than pilsener. A good, crisp lighter beer for sessions.

Bottle. Loved this pilsener/amber. Great sweet scent with a hint of sour that reminded me of sour patch kids. Copper color. Light body with a crisp texture. The taste started sweet then settled into a tortilla corn grain blend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy by stoneagerad

ChainGangGuy (4423) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 31, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Atlanta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, golden-amber body with a slim, brief, white head. Smell: Grainy, doughy nose with aromatic hop notes scented of grated spices. Taste: Pilsner maltiness rounded with a smooth breadiness and lightly sweet accents. Very subtle fruitiness. Restrained German hop spiciness with just enough bitterness to balance things out. However, the spiciness, alongside the grainy pils quality dials up a bit before the dry finish. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Served itself well as an aperitif before heating up some sad, old leftovers. Thanks, Penn Pilsner, thank you for that.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2012 bottle. a clear orange beer with no head. pale lager aroma with faint malt sweetness. honey and sweet pale malt flavors. whether a vienna or a pils, it’s not that interesting.

Lithp (37) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2012 On tap at a bar. Pours a light yellow with a small bright white head. Mild grassy aroma. Very smooth, kind of watery. Crisp, goes down easy. Pretty good for the style, but Pilsners aren’t really my favorite.

matalec1984 (115) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle- Poured into a sam glass. Nice golden color with white head. Dissipates quickly but leaves a blotchy thick white residue on surface. High carbonation. Smell was pungent and very sour. Very much like soured fruit. The taste plays off of the smell. Tastes sort of like a fruit smoothie gone sour. The intial bite is very strong, mellows out a bit to slight hop flavors and banana. The sour taste holds strong in the aftertaste. Light bodied beer but a light slick on the tongue. To sour for my taste. Especially for a pils.
