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.

EithCubes (4833) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle. Nose is light citrus, bready. Pours rich golden with above-avg carb and a fizzy beige head. Taste lightly sweet, plain but pleasant malt, not all that crisp, dries out in the finish, very light grassy and juicy hops, faint mineral touch, body feels more like an ale than a pilsner. Clean and hits the spot, good lawnmower beer but doesn’t stand up to thoughtful reflection.

12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Manassas. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized fizzy offwhite head. Good head retention. Aroma of not much. Faint sweet malt and spicy hops. The taste is sweet malt, grassy hops, mild grain and raisin. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, slight lingering bitterness.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured gold, clear with a nice thick white head and spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grain, and malts; a bit weak. Taste of yeast, malts and grain, some slight hoppiness towards the end. Crisp and refreshing, no bad at all.

Bottle. Poured a pretty clear golden yellow color with a large white head. Aroma was toasted malts, some light grain. Plenty of crystal. Flavor was crisp and clean malts, some earthy and floral hop notes. Pretty clean, easy to drink - a pretty good Pilsner.

HighlanderOne (1000) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Poured from bottle. Nice hop, bread and honey aroma. A bit darker than your average pils. I taste malt, hops, honey, pepper. Crisp feel. Not bad - pretty straight forward pils.
