Great dry beer. Awesome flavor with a distinct hops taste...not at all bitter...One of the best DeGroen's...If you get a chance, you MUST visit the Baltimore Brewing Company to get a taste of them all. HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 7, 2002
Looks like a pils to me. Great clarity. Nice saaz aroma. Medium body. Really hoppy up front. The malt is a tad bit low. However, this a Solid B pils. mribm (463) - Ocala, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2003
Bottled. A very hoppy Pils! It had a metallic taste with an underlying sweetness, which is quickly overwhelmed by the hop finish. This beer is like the IPA of Pilseners. I liked this beer a lot! I will buy this again. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 22, 2003
(draft): Mmmmmm. Delicious big herbal hoppiness backed by medium sweetness. Crisp and refreshing light-medium body. There aren't many pilsners for which I ask for seconds, but this one was too good not to have it again.

Sampled at the brewery. There is an unbelievable amount of fresh hop character to this beer, from aroma to flavor to a searing finish. I am not sure the malt is up to the task of providing relief. Definitely more fun than many of the austere and grainy German Pils varieties. Very good, but the DeGroen Dunkel is better. chronictonic (490) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2003
I was really impressed with the DeGroens Pils. Stands up well vs. the other local competition (Victory, Sly Fox et. al.). Nice hop aroma - spicy nose. Good light golden color, medium cloudiness. Flavor is good and crip - dry with an assertive hop characteristic. Finishes dry and hoppy. beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2003
Color is a light lemony clear yellow, some floaties in there, with a medium stark white head that puffed up quickly and receded justly, lace is in minimal finely stitched spots. Smell has a soft herbal/floral hop aroma, a bit citrusy and fairly spicy. Taste is packed with mild breadish malts in the start and builds quickly to lots of sharply rendered herbal hops, highly sweetning and bittered, touching of citrus, quite zippy and full of dried hops, a good kick of spicyness comes through late with a touch of minerals or vitamins, cinnamon, pepper, pretzel salt, a drying crisp finish with good depth that lasts forever. One hell of a tasty pils. Feel is pretty full with a carbonation that really zips in and out with an overall softness on the palate and a nice drying easy feel in the finish. This was a pretty darn good pilsner, lots of flavor and zip, right up there with one of my favorites, New Glarus Home Town Blonde. jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Crystal clear rich golden body topped by a stark white head that clings o the glass in great sheets. The aroma is very bready with loads of saaz. Hop assault on first taste. Bitterness goes from front to back and keeps on. More bitter then I expected but quite wonderful! Body is med-light and the finish is very crisp. One of the better american brewed pilsener out there. scraff (2125) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2004
A session beer. Golden with a nice white fluffy head. Good saaz hop bitterness, balanced by a good amount of sweet grainy malt. Lots of bready notes with a sharp citric fruit shot. Crisp clean finish. Another good one from this underated brewery.
