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.

12 oz bottle - clean grassy a bit sweet with a full pils flavor - just the slightest bit cloying and a bit too safe. Slightly above average for a micro pils. I bought a six pack - will save the rest for my less adventurous friends ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

got this from my beer friend nate! its from the fridge in Lancaster, heheh. drank right from the bottle so I assume its yellah. smells like beer. wew, has quite a kick at first but after the first swig it goes up from there. yes, very crisp, getting better. goes down pretty easy, mostly well behaved. ok, better than average beer, refreshing to say the least.

Pours a dark yellow hue. Not much aroma at all. Good solid taste though. Not a thin beer at all. I get hefe - banana notes followed by a grain taste. A touch of metallic pilsner taste as well.

BeerandBlues2 (10056) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours clear dark gold with a large, frothy white head, long retention with fair lacing. Aroma is Pils malt with the standard corn and DMS component, and light spicy hops. Flavor is malt forward with light hops and bitterness and a clean lager character with a dry finish. Light body and medium to moderate carbonation.

Took a chance and picked up a 6-pack of this Pilsner at State Line Liquors while traveling through MD. Could have included it in a Mix-a-Six but am glad I didnít. One of the best new (to me) Pilsners in quite some time. Nicely full bodied yet very refreshing . Much more than a lawnmower beer yet seemingly could be considered as a session beer. Hope its distribution reaches further north in ensuing months. Iím very impressed with all 3 products from the Raven label that I brought home.

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 5/22/13

Aroma: The nose is clean and grassy, with some grainy and cereal malts, and light spice
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a small off-white head and some drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet, with some nice malts, light spice, and a clean hop bitter finish
Palate: The body is light-medium, not at all watery, very clean and drinkable, with a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: Wow, only 3 raters before me! Anway, Iíll skip the bad Poe joke this time (I already did that in my "Tell Take Heart" review). I thought this was a very solid pilsener. It has a really nice mix of hops and malts on the nose, and the flavor works pretty much just as well. I found some small flaws that kept this from being a top of example style, but it is still a very nice beer. So far, after trying two of their beers, Iím pretty happy with the work of these here Poe fans. As far as Poe-centric things that are new to me in 2013 go, this brewery is way better than The Following.

guzzler67 (1526) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Clear, yellow/gold appearance with a large white head and good lacing. Subtly hopped, toasted grain aroma. Floral hops are more evident in the taste and well balanced by crystal malts. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel with a crisp, clean aftertaste. Nicely made, welcome addition to the local beer scene.
