In the brewing lexicon, pilsner is the beer of kings and ours is no exception. Southern Tier Pilsner has the spicy aroma and dry finish that ones expects from a fine European lager. But since it’s brewed locally, it’s fresh every time you crack open a bottle. With its pale golden color, light body and clean aftertaste, our Pilsner won’t slow you down even after a few pints. So next time you thirst for a beer with European character, reach for a Southern Tier Pilsner: Der König der Gebräu.

A pleasant pilsner surprise. 12oz bottle, pours golden color nice head, and good lacing throughout the drink. A well brewed clean, crisp flavor of a pilsner. A typical pilsner, not much can be done different to this style, but a little hops added to the taste….nice. Some hints of spicy malts, good clean finish.

From old notes so the details are a bit vague. I remember when Southern tier started and they focused on traditional ales. They mad credible exampled but nothing that really grabbed attention. This one was such a beer. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale yellow color with a large foamy white head. The aroma was light tangy and crisp fruity hops. The flavor was tangy with light floral and fruity hops with a touch of bread. The finish turned a bit dry with some lingering hops. Light body. Ok.

Fruity and a bit metallic aroma. Very lacey. Light colour. Easy drink and fruity, with lemon promient taste and drying, a tad metallic finish. Above-average carbonation. Satisfying summer beverage.Nice balance with understated malt.

This is the best of the few pilsners I’ve had so far. Just seemed to be a very drinkable beer.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with shadey, thanks Shane!) Now this is an American pilsner I could drink with some frequency. It features a mildly sweet, fairly bready flavor that is wonderfully balanced by a spicy, moderately bitter hops. The nose is strongly dominated by the sweet, bready aromas, with hops being a minor component of the nose in general. Light to medium in body, but the palate is plenty full enough for the style and shows some crispness from the hops. Golden yellow in color and fully cloudy in appearance. The bubbly, off-white head pours to an inch in height, but maintains a thin but complete layer atop the beer for the entire session. Lots of patchy lacing is deposited on the glass. Another solid effort from Southern Tier.

Golden with good head and lacing. Bready malts with an excellently dry pepper hop finish. The prickly carbonation also helps cleanse the sweetness from your palate. I’m not sure how old my bottle is, but it tasted very fresh

Definietely loads of sweet malt in here, buttery, fresh - packs a pretty carbonated punch that thins the body out a bit, loses some oilyness as a result. Yummy noble hops add some tobacconess.
