Tap. This looks like a pilsner. Classic clear yellow color with a big white head. But the taste of the grains don’t stand out. Poor finish that was kind of sour.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Pours golden with minimal head, lace, carbonation. Does not smell very good, slightly buttery with a lot grains and not much pleasantness. Taste is buttery, skunky and mildly grainy. Pretty poor showing here. Not sure if I’ll try the others in the Penn series after experiencing this.

Nice amber color. Fairly light, dry, and bitter brew. Not much of a pilsner, but that is because it apparently is a Vienna lager. So so. This brewer has not really won me over. They are just a click above the macros imho.

Pours gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sour summer fruit aromas. Sour strawberry and cranberries...uh, nope.

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Bottle shared courtesy of fatty. Poured a clear golden color with a small sized white head. Musty grassy aroma and tastes with breadiness to it. Thin and watery body.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy golden-amber color with a medium sized creamy white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy with bread and sour malts and phenol . The flavor is overly sweet with sour tangy malts and just a hint of fruity hops. Medium length finish. Medium body. This used to be a pleasant beer but is no where near as good as it used to be.

rubbishystuff (1872) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2010
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

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

Very light hoppy beer. Extremely average but how high are pilsner a related anyway.
