3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. Iíd 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 wonít have it again being that I like their other brews so much.
Serving type: on-tap

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty much fits the commercial description except it didnít mention the quickly diminishing head and poor lacing., very tasty brew, definitely meant to be a session beer as it goes down very easy with no one thing to the forefront,, nice malt and hop marriage.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from BeerGestapo, served in a footed pilsner glass. Gold pour with a thin white head. Smells of bready malts and...well thatís it. The flavor is malty and crisp with some grass and DMS in the middle. I donít know if this has gone downhill at all since it started being contract brewed in Wilkes-Barre or not but it certainly isnít that impressive.

8/27/2009: Penn Pils... Aroma: Floral with notes of white wine and apple cider. Appearance: Rich golden color; 2-finger puffy, off-white head that has good retention. Flavor: Slightly sweet, good maltinss for the style; floral middle; lightly crisp finish with grassy hoppiness. Palate: Medium-light to medium-bodied; smooth and soft in the mouth. Overall: Not disappointed; complimented my steamed mussells with fennel and spicy sausage very well!
