hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2006

CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 18, 2003
Clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma of dry Saaz hops and pale malt. Body is lightly sweet, but mostly dry and bitter with a tart finish. Too sour and puckering to be a good pils. Bland flavor could use a more refined body.

Ughsmash (7126) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2006
Bottled. Poured a bright medium golden with about an inch of creamy white head. Nose was of pleasant sweet bready malts, honey, and the faintest hints of lemon. Flavor found sourdough bready malts, spiked with somewhat sour lemon and light spices. Lighter on the palate but never watery. Decent feel. I could drink this again.

DrSilverworm (6318) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennanís in Madison during GTMW. Code on bottle reads 16:08 1614 SP. Clear golden, slight orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves some decent ropes of lace. Active looking carbonation. A few fine particles suspended in the body. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, light to moderate carbonation. Slick texture. Corn, bready aroma. Moderate sweet taste, very light bitterness. Light bit of a bite in the finish. An OK pilsener, not great. A bit slick, but unnecessarily rough and heavy for the ABV. Not refreshing like a pilsener this light should be, not crisp.

Skyview (5177) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Picked up single 12-oz bottle at Brennanís Country Farm Market in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden pale blonde brew with a creamy and fast dissolving white head. Nice lacing for a pilsener brew. Aroma of white bread grain malt, a touch of grassy hops, and some light pear fruitiness. Taste is light to medium bodied, light carbonation, fruity, with some white bread and citrus zest. Finish is slightly bitter, a touch of lemon zest, metallic texture and a light biscuit & pear aftertaste.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 18, 2003
Golden color with a moderate off white head. Sweet malt and light band-aid aroma. thick, yet spritzy in feel. Maybe my taste buds are off today, but I had a bottle of this a few days ago and thought higher of it. Lacks a malt finish that I really enjoy in this style. This one seems a bit grainy. I have another bottle and will rerate in a few days if my impressions are based on a bad taste bud day.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 20, 2005
12 oz bottle from the Brennans in Brookfield, WI. Snowy largish frothy head topping a clear gold body, moderately lasting...rather sickly-sweet malty nose, very perfumy, dogwood and honey, bit too much really...body also very sweet for a pils, some lightly metallic bitterness at the finish, reasonably crisp but not enough body at the end, perhaps just a bit stale and really quite dull. I didnít expect too much from these Brennans beers despite Capitalís presence, but my expectations werenít even met, sigh.

This is a nice pils. Gold color and moderate hop aroma, with malt and hop flavor. Mild bitterness.
