COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a one-time only pilsner made for a 1,000 beer club member at KClinger's Pub. The guy happens to work for PennDOT, hence the name. It is 4.5% ABV featuring Magnum and Hersbrucker hops.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Sampled at Kennett Square fest 05. VIP tasting. Pours a light gold, slight haze from the keg and a nice long lasting frothy white head. Aroma is a pure Noble hop goodness. Lots of lightly fruity floral aromas balanced with pure pilsner malt. Flavor is loaded with hops as well- kinda reminded me a bit of the Victory Braumeister pils. Good bready malt backbone on lightly grassy hops, some spiciness, and more flowery hops. I love Hersbrucker hops. I wish my Hersbrucker pils turned out this good.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2005
Sweet, grainy, malt aroma with grassy, lightly citrus hops is lightly fruity. Clear golden body is topped by a low, white, mostly diminishing head. Grainy malts coupled with grassy, citrus hop flavours, a touch of butter and mild finishing bitterness. Light body with initially strong carbonation that does not last. Sampled at Kennett Square Brewfest 2005.

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Pours a light straw. Aroma is honey, floral, slight fruit. Flavor is grain, mild honey, and floral hops. LIght bodied nice refreshing pils that still retains a sturdy flavor.

Nejhleader (1264) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2005 Pretty citrus taste, carbonated well. Very different from anything else troegs brings to the table. Kinda light, drinkable, almost tastes like some macros of similiar nature.

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2005
On tap at the Kennett Square Brew Fest (connoisseur session). Poured a light and see through yellow color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas and tastes of grass and citrus. Lively body.

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Poured a golden color, with a medium sized white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet malts, citrus, grassy hops and light diactyl. Taste of more sweet malts, some lemongrass, tart wheatiness, a touch of buttercream, and light carbonation in the mouthfeel.
