COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pendulum Pilsner is a rich velvet smooth, yet clean, dry and crisp pilsner of a pale gold color. The complex mix of hops and malt creates an elegant floral nose and delightful taste that is very drinkable without overwhelming even the most tepid beer drinker. Not overly bitter but just enough of the hop to enjoy their subtle complexities while still enjoying the smooth, and almost sweet taste of the malt. Serve Pendulum in a tall glass to enjoy the carbonated bead and the steady white head that laces the glass and taste why Pendulum Pilsner is a cut above the rest.

Brass colored body, clear and lively, under a fast white head. Toasted malt and hay aroma with hints of grasses and MAYBE a whiff of wildflowers. Noble hops come out as it warms. Flavor has the persona of a Czech Pils with Saaz hops alongside a sticky floral sweetness. Bittersweet finish is a bit soapy. Not "crisp", not "clean"... not quite a drain-pour but hard to finish. ~~~~ 12 oz. bottle, purchased "somewhere in Baltimore" (according to my wife).

jsquire (4106) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Amber color beer with a foamy head that quickly shrank down to very little. Malt powder and white sugar sweetness in the nose. Very sweet malty beer with a bit of macro corniness to it. There is very little to this beer.

Une pilsener un peu moins élégante et complexe que la précdente mais neanmoins fraîche et idéal sur le Lobster Roll.

altonbrownd (5419) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle from Perfect Pour. Bold orange body with slight head. Nose is yeasty, floral, hoppy. Taste is malty up front, wheaty, then more fruity with oranges. Notes of bananas in there. Decent.

Bottle. Notes of cereal grains, some grass, and little bit of honey biscuits. Really basic with a medium bodied mouthfeel.

radio_nowhere (1378) - Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle into pils glass, clear darker golden color with white head. Aroma notes of pale malt sweetness, cereal and faint grass/floral hops. Taste adds some bread, hay and faint hop spice. Light body, moderate-heavy carbonation, crisp with clean light grassy finish. Straight forward pils, somewhat boring but true to style and no flaws.

jonas (6673) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 29, 2015
Bottle. Clear pale golden, low white head. Fairly neutral aroma. Light bodied, mellow mouthfeel. Slightly grainy base, ok grassy hop notes. Not so exiting.

rick_91709 (356) - USA - JAN 3, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Clear copper/gold. Little head. Slight malty aroma. Not much flavor up front. Hops come through in the aftertaste. Very unassuming beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
