As opposed to its bigger Czech cousin Peck’s Pilsner, our German Pils is a traditional German-style brau. The renowned German Hallertau Mittelfruh hop and pilsner malt produce a lighter-bodied pils that finishes crisp yet soft. So authentic and drinkable, it cries “Bring on the liters!”

Dogbrick (14344) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Sample at the downtown brewpub. Clear pale yellow-gold color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly to a sparse film. Spotty lacing. Grassy hops and bready malt in the nose. LIght body with flavors of herbal hops, yeast and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short spiced hops aftertaste. Barely average overall.

Lubiere (14262) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2012
A golden lager with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, a light acidic malt with light German hops. In mouth, a nice crisp malt with German hopping, boring. On tap at Madison airport location, Jan 22 2012.

Great Dane Verrückte Stadt German Pils Got a 64 ounce branded growler of this not 24 hours old as a gift. Pours into my stange with a nice fluffy white three finger head. It sticks around for awhile before leaving some very nice lacing behind. This beer is pale pale gold, and very clear and bright. This is perhaps the clearest most filtered looking beer I’ve ever seen. It looks like a stalwart German pilsener. The scent is very grassy and floral, more american pilsener style. There is also some malt. Taste is very American styled pilsener. It is bursting with malt sour lemon fruitiness and some grassy spice. Like most American pilseners it is totally unrefined in taste compared to its European counterparts with some diacetyl. This one is very light on taste, would make a good summertime quencher as it goes down extremely easy though its not that much of a pleasure to down. The mouthfeel is smooth, with some wateriness and a nice balance of carbonation. Overall its a malt bomb of a pils with that typical American, go-over-the-recipe-once-then-brew-it scheme.

On tap at the Great Dane Brew Pub (Downtown Madison Location). Poured a lighter and clear yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas and tastes of grassiness and some spices. Tastes, as was the body, thin and on the watery side.

(Draught) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of grain, lemon, and light grass. Flavor of grass, lemon, earth, and grain with mild bitterness in the finish.

Sammy (13013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2011
On tap at the downtown brewpub. Neutral aroma, light coloured but noticeably lacey. A decent drinker, with a mild bitterness as denoted by 13 IBU. Serviceable sessionable, at 5.4% abv.

Tap at the brewpub in Wausau. Clear pale golden pour with a smaller spotty white head. Nose is very faint. Crisp palate but just mild cream / grain here. Dull.

8/14/11. On tap in the Madison airport. Very clear light golden pour with a small fluffy white head and plenty of lacing. Subtle aroma of graininess with a touch of earthy hop. Biting flavor of pilsner grain and earthy hops. Not bad!
