2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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

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. 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

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.
