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.

Pretty much fits the commercial description except it didn’t 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.

Bottle from BeerGestapo, served in a footed pilsner glass. Gold pour with a thin white head. Smells of bready malts and...well that’s it. The flavor is malty and crisp with some grass and DMS in the middle. I don’t know if this has gone downhill at all since it started being contract brewed in Wilkes-Barre or not but it certainly isn’t 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!

Draught at the Tap Room at the Omni William Penn in Pittsburgh, PA. Rating #226 for this beer.

Perfectly clear golden yellow. Grassy aromas, earthy and light caramel. Well balanced with a lightly toasted malt back and a nice clean bitterness, fresh noble hops. Finish is slightly metallic.

Comes out of the tap a clear golden yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is crisp, malty and quite inviting. Flavor is crisp and malty like a typical pilsner, with a fruity undertone and more rounded out than most pilsners I have tried. Texture is tingly, lively and sassy. I am not a big fan of pilsners or lagers, but I did like this one and I recommend it to pilsner lovers.
