German Pilsners are known for their assertive hop character and clean crisp finish. Made with 100% imported malt and hops ours is authentic as it gets.

Starts off well, nice clear deep straw color with a 1 finger head. Noble hops prevalent in the nose, but not overwhelming allowing the grain aromas to come through. Slight sweetness from the grain, not to much, just right. Hop flavors and bitterness hanging around but not overpowering allowing the grain to shine. Finishes cleaner than expected, figuring the sweetness would last. Excellent pilsener!

Clean lemon and crisp malt nose. The taste is fairly dry, lightly buttery with lots of fresh grassy hops, crackery malts, light lemon and a touch of hay. Long bitter finish.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 8, 2011
Tap at Triumph in Philly for RBSG 2011. The pour is a clear yellow with a medium white head and full, sticky, sheety white lace. Taste is very tart with massive sourdough bread and lemon before you get a huge Saaz hop detonation with no nasty soapiness that usually comes with the style. Very clean palate with fresh sourdough and lemongrass. Ends oatmeal heavy and raw grain with artisanal sourdough. An incredible pilsener made in the heart of pilsener country.

01.13.06 Tap at Princeton location. Rich and bright golden color under ample, lasting, and stickily lacing white head. Lush and coating palate full of cracker and grass. Full of crackin hops. Smart and cleansing drink with the grilled ham and cheese they’re trying to pass off as a cubano sandwich. Loses it’s body quickly as it approaches room temp.

Light golden color with a medium fizzy head. Aroma is nice and malty with some grass, sweet pils malt, and a nice hop bitterness. Taste has a nicely hopped flavor to go with a crisp & smooth finish. Well done.

Samples at the Triumph. Pours clear deep golden hue with a lively carbonation. Aroma is of mostly herbal hops with some malt in the background. The body is medium and crisp. Flavors are of mostly bitter hops overpowering biscuit malt. Long, bitter finish. Nicely made Pilsener.

Tap @ Princeton. Pours a nice pale gold with lively carbonation and a tight white head. Aroma had slight hints of both dms and diacetyl, but those took a backseat to the bready pils malts and light noble hop aroma- slightly fruity as well. Flavor was light with more pils malt, fresh baked bread, and crisp with a nice bitter hoppy finish. Pretty smooth overall. Nice and easy to drink.

On tap at Triumph New Hope. Pours a translucent golden with an average bubbly/creamy white head. Aroma of noble hops, citrus, floral, cereal grains and pretzels. Flavor of pretzels, grains, noble hops, nice hop bitterness and some grassiness.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2006
New Hope location. Clear, deep straw body with a collapsing sudsy white head. Rich continental pils malt aroma with melon and citrus tones plus some light hay. Good pils malt flavor with lemony highlights and a lightly numbing, antiseptic finish. Clean, well-lagered character overall. Nice, smooth, quenching mouthfeel. A solid brewpub pilsner.

something about a crisp pilsener on a hot summer day. decent bitterness countered by decent maltiness. i find a well crafted pils like this just as enjoyable as a good ipa.
