20100606 tap at downtown location. Perfectly refreshing, not flawed with the usual bp pils pitfalls, but not at all hoppy or interesting enough to get me excited about it. That said, the world would be a better place if every neighborhood had a solid bp pils like this one. Bockyhorsey (2627) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Sample at pub. Corn aroma. Yellow body with white head. Bitter flavor and that kind gave me a bitter beer face. BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2009
On tap at the Wausau MN Great Dane as "George Ruder’s" german pils. A clear yellow color with white head. Faint grassy aroma with mild hops and more of the same in the body, but with a bready taste and a bit of caramel malt in the finish. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Light light Gold Coloring. One of the more watery / less flavorfull beers on the line. ahhh..pick something else while you’re at the Great Dane. ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Small sample out of buddy’s glass. MGD aroma. Not much head or lace. Pale gold color. Doughy mouthfeel with hops evident at back of tongue. A really solid pils.

Pours a vibrant, golden colour with a small off white head. Well balanced, not overly malted, pours with retention. Nice lacing, Aroma is fruity on the nose, yet taste is soft of grain and dough. Finishes slightly bitter. StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Clear pale yellow in color. Very light with a splotched white head. Aroma is skunky and raw potatoes, and some hop bouquet. Creamy, but light. Not enough hopping for pils distinction. More like a helles. Lemony and bready. Very bright feel on the palate. Like an amplified MGD. jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2005
Had this at the pub. Boy, well it was in a glass. Quite liquid as I can tell. It was also wet. As you can tell there isn’t much to say about this. Yes, it’s a beer. Yes, it tastes like a bad, bad pilsner. Let’s say there wasn’t anything completely horrible about this, but if someone just poured a glass of Coors Light I wouldn’t have known the difference. beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2006
On-tap at the brewpub: A lighter medium shade of hay. Clear bodied. Frothy white foam of medium size dawns the top well and lasts for good length. Laces the glass in all kinds of spotty sheeting.
Aroma is well spiced with that certain German hopped spice, some partial dried floralness slimmed with grass and bready yeast.
Taste doesn’t disappoint; solid, crisp, broad flavors of dried bread, zippy German hop spice of dry grasses and herbs, yet stays thirsty and wet with a tender backing of doughy bread malt. Lasting, tender finish with some of the spicy hops.
Firm, medium body for a Pilsner. Very well done. Crisp, eager, with a fun balance of hoppy spice, bready malt; dryness and quick fullness. The dryness is immaculately placed along a very foregiving wet play of slick smoothness. A solid Pils. Sessionable by the growler and then some. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Pour is gold with a white head. Aroma shows pale malt and grassy hops. Flavor shows pretty much the same with maybe a touch of citrus hiding in the background. Overall body is light, crisp, and finishes with light bitterness. Nothing offensive, just not very interesting.
