It was in 1842 that a Bavarian brewmaster first brewed this classic beer style, today known throughout the world. Unfortunately, it is often poorly copied, being created using adjunct grains like corn, rice, or worse yet, sugar cane or beets. These adjuncts produce beer without body, mouth feel or specific character. We use 100% barley malt. Our Pilsener is everything that a true Pils should be: clear, golden color with a dense white head, full of barley malt and balanced with a perceptible noble hop bitterness.

Thanks to Skyview. Pours a light golden amber, with a nice head. Nice biscuity malt, and funky earthy spiciness on the nose. Very full flavored and bodied, with a great sweet malt and definite noble hops. Great long lasting finish.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2009 Thanks to Skyview for sharing. An interesting and unusual pilsner. Gold in color and a white head, it looks very nice. Aroma has light hops. The flavor is a surprise, mild hops and very salty. One of the saltiest beers I have ever had, like a gose. Herbal, vegetal finish. It is hard to find a pilsner so thick and heavy on the palate, quite a rare thing. The best pilsner I have had outside of the Czech Republic, and certainly my favorite non-Bohemian style pilsner.

After seeing Skyviews raves, I decided to head down to Menomonie and check out Das Bierhaus for myself. I ordered the sampler, in which I got about 4 oz. each of all five of Das Bierhaus beers for the very reasonable price of $5. The Pilsener has a very nice, fruit-heavy aroma with apricot, pear, green grape, honey, and floral hops scents. Pours a sparkling pale gold with a white head. The flavor features a honey-sweet maltiness and, more prominently, an aggressive dry hoppiness. This is my kind of pilsner (i.e., very hoppy)! Medium body (full by the standards of a lager). Lively and frothy in the palate. This is a very good pils. Its easily one of the best American pilsners I have tried, although I should note that its German heritage is unmistakable.

Visited Das Bierhaus for their official Grand Opening on June 30. This beverage pours a clear rich golden blonde brew with a nice white head that slowly dissolves to a fine film. Excellent lacing that occurs naturally or after taking a drink. Aroma of sweet Hawaiian bread dough, sunflower honey, with flowery hops. Taste is slightly thick, creamy, medium body (surprising for a Pils), lightly carbonated, with a slight sweet bread aftertaste. Finish is smooth, light and a near clean aftertaste. By far, one of the best pilseners I have had to date.
