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.

DrSilverworm (6040) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2014
12oz bottle, thanks to Pat H. for this one. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves decent lace, a few dots. Good head retention. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lightly soft, light to moderate strength carbonation. Lightly slick finish. Kind of a bready malt, light caramel. Lightly peppery. Some hints of citrus rind. Moderate bitter taste. Light to moderate sweet. Light tanginess. OK pils.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear light gold body under a small fizzy white head that faded fairly quickly. The nose is a touch too sweet smelling with some bready and doughy pale maltiness. Not much in the way of hops to speak about. The flavor is a little too sweet as well, and tastes a bit like there’s some corn in here. Very lightly hopped, with minimal to no bitterness. Finishes with some sweet bready maltiness. Light bodied and a bit clingy with soft minimal carbonation. Pretty lackluster Pilsner.

radagast83 (4445) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2014
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.

cheap (3975) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2013
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.

ben4321 (3827) - 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, I’ll 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, I’m 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.

DiarmaidBHK (3387) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle from Shawan Liquors. Pours dark golden with a thin white head. Has a kind of grassy funk on the nose. Crisp and clean on the tongue. Doesn’t have much of.a hop presence. Eh!
