3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has a grassy, hay, noble aroma along with a faint whiff of malt and a hint of, oddly, powdered sugar. The body is a bright golden color and holds a diminishing white head that is roughly a thumb thuck at the pour’s finish. The first sip is lightly sweet, malt accented with some very faint caramel hints and a grassy flavor through the middle. Pretty damn nice in a "I’m in the mood for a lager" kind of way. A gold colored and less hopped version of Sam Adams if I had to compare it to something. I think I’m gonna buy a sixer of this for my Sister and Brother-in-law who refuse to come off the lagers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 355 ml
Appearance: pours as clear dark golden brew. Medium long lived mid dense top.
Nose: Clean , fresh properly constructed pils aroma. Meadow like hop profile often found in Bavarian and Bohemian lagers. Very neat refreshing softness.
Flavor/Palate : Medium light bodied. Golden malt bottom. Not to heavy with delicate yet pronounced hops. Very drinkable amber pils from Penn Brewery. Pleasant surprise.
As of Feb 2009 this beer is higly underrated.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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

From the beer of the month club. 12 oz. Bottle. The beer pours a clear golden yellow with a white head and slick lacing. The aroma is full hop sweet malt and earth. The taste is smooth and malty with a light body and crisp, clean finish. Very drinkable and clean pilsner.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly dark yellow, white cover. Aroma is crackery malt, some light grassiness. Taste is solid, again crackers, lightly bready but not heavy, some residual sweetness and dry, grassy, earthy hop finish. Nice, not sure why the name Pilsner and then the Vienna style though.
