G: Pilsner Urquell pilsener glass. A: Dark gold with plenty of carbonation and a rather large head. Quite transparent. S: Pale malts with a field-ish smell. Slightly sweet. T: Slightly sweet with some grainy flavors. Slight hint of bubble gum. Slight hop presence. Slightly hefeweizen-esque. M: Very light mouthfeel with minimal carbonation and no alcohol presence. Very smooth. D: Exceedingly drinkable. Definitely looking forward to these over the summer. Fiancee thinks its "okay."

Beer of the month club selection. I was not a big fan of this. Bitter but not a pleasant bitter. Why is it called Pilsner when even the brewery says it is a Vienna? Serving: Bottle

12 oz bottle: Pours a light yellow with some cloudiness. Nice head, but little aroma. Taste was pleasant but not exciting or very complex.

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

A- transparent dark yellow body with thin white head that disappears quickly. No lacing left behind in the glass. S- some malt and light hops. T- Initial taste is quite malty. This is followed by a light refreshing hop aftertaste. Good but nothing special. P- Light carbonation and medium weight body. Well done. O- This was pretty good overall. I’d session it if it was the best choice available. My least favorite of the Penn Brews that I have had so far and it happens to be their flagship. go figure. Its a decent pils but I probably won’t have it again being that I like their other brews so much. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-18-2007 16:12:26 --

weihenweizen (1608) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - FEB 18, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2010 Refrigerated bottle poured into a glass. Pours a light amber color with small head that disappates quickly. Still has fairly nice carbonation and some lacing. A little sweeter (pretty well balanced sweetness) and a little darker than your typical pilsner. Kind of in between a pilsner and an american amber.

12 ounce bottle from Chicken Charlies. Pours a clear golden hue with a small white head. The aroma is biscuits, light honey. The flavor is similar; sweet corn and adjuncts, biscuit and light bittering hops. Decent.
