Paulina Lake Pilsner is a classic German style Pilsner. Light straw in color and well hopped with European noble hops, this beer is fermented to a low final gravity. This leads to a beer with few residual sugars to create a dry crisp lager with higher hop bitterness and aroma than your typical American Lager.

Grains: Pilsner
Hops: Czech Saaz

Bomber. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A fruity corn and lemon nose. The flavor is sweet corn, pils malt, a bit dirty. OK. A bit sweet and dirty.

Draft. Golden-straw beer with a cream head. Light malt and light spice aroma. Malt and grain flavor with light mineral and spice. Medium bodied. Grain and mineral lingers with spice.

Pours murky yellow with a thin off-white head and a nondescript aroma. There is a light fruity malt flavor with a slightly bitter dry finish.

An almost flourescent yellow with a hint of green to it. A slightly lemony tingle mixes with tinges of metallic grain. A little tart for me. Very husky from the grain and a tiny hint of DMS.

Bottle:   Pale straw, fairly translucent, moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing, little to no carbonation.   Grassy nose, hay, straw, the usual suspects.   Malty on the tongue, grassy, good bout of sweetness.   A little dry on the backside, even perhaps a touch of astringency.   Lingering bright straw and grass.   Finishes fairly quickly, minor astringency after the finish.   Decent, not as crisp as others.   Decent body and mouthfeel.   Yeah, just needs to be maybe a little more sharp.   Otherwise, fairly decent.

22 oz bomber courtesy of bvc. Pour is slight chill haze yelloe, almost greenish tinge with a one inch pure white head. Tons of carbonation bubbles floating to the surface. Aroma is soft hay grassiness along with lemon citrus and mildly sweet floral. Fresh and clean, quite inviting. Taste is the nose, hay and grass, floral and lemon, and a really nice Saaz hop brightness. The after taste is crisp and clean. Palate is light bodied, unfiltered with a mineral element in the end. Really nice Pils, thanks for always having your eyes open for these sorts of beers Brandon.

22 oz bought from "Habits" in South Salem. Probably the brightest yellow beer i have seen..bright and crystal clear. Small white head. Pleasing doughy ,bready aromas with a tinge of lemon zest hop. Good Crisp sweet malt flvoured lager..with a hoppy buzz leaving bitterness at the end. Nice palate, crisp and refreshing. A nice lager..very good American lager..but not a pils by any means.

I like a crisp, clean and refreshing pilsner from time to time but it’s just not that exciting of a beer to me. So, as most of you already know, this is where the hedonistic scale doesn’t do justice. Rated to style I would have to increase everything but the palate score. Sweet grainy malt and noble hops in the nose. Light straw color with initial frothy white head that doesn’t persist and leaves slight lacing. Little carbonation visible. Substantial malt sweetness with a good hop presence that lends a long bitter finish. Medium to med. light body with medium carbonation and a smooth and creamy texture. Nice example of a Classic American Pilsner. Still, I think a nice IPA hop-bomb suits me just fine on a hot summer day.

Light yellow/medium straw, fluffy sticky white head. Dry fresh grassy aroma. Very clean, still dry and grassy in the sip, not much in the way of a hoppy finish, though it was a good clean and snappy contrast to the pale malt.

A decent dry aroma. The flavor on this is pretty dry and quite nice, but with just a hint of butter. Certainly what I wanted at the moment anyway.
