COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In The beginning, there were ales. As far as anyone knows, the first beers made were ’top-fermented’, which is longhand for ’Ale’. Sometime long before the 1860’s, beers became popular that were made in Northern Europe with a bottom fermenting yeast strain that liked the colder temperatures. Because they had to spend weeks aging before they tasted their best, they were known as ’Lager’ beer. Lager is the German word for ’storage’. Since they had to sit a while, they took up more time and space and as such were harder and more expensive to make. Where ales are meaty, lagers are sinewy. Where ales are street, lagers are ’haute couture’. Where an ale might hit you over the head and take your wallet, lagers donate to charity and adopt stray cats. While an ale might steal your car or try to date your daughter and keep her out all night for who-knows-what purpose, a well bred lager would offer to clean your house while you’re on vacation and leave fresh scones and coffee for you when you return. Now, don’t get us wrong, ales can be a lot of fun to hang out with when you’re in the right mood, and if you have bail money on you. But what’s wrong with livin’ uptown from time to time, on a nice street, where the doormen all wear those little uniforms, the air smells of flowers, and lagers rule the Earth. Cheers!

12oz single from Total Wine. Golden beer with a white head that didn’t last long. Aroma is pilsener lager and not impressive. Flavor is better than the aroma would lead you to believe. Some sweet pale malts to start and quickly dries out to a spicy, bitter hop bite. Pleasant long bitter finish. Medium body. Not bad. A pils could have been much worse.

Not bad but I think they should stick to ales. It was a well crafted pils but it just didnt have the flavor or full body like I expect from Lagunitas.

Dorwart (2581) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 3, 2007
Thin head which dissipates quickly. Light carbonation. Light malty aroma with a bit of vegetal (sweet potato), corn and some floral notes. Color is a bright golden orange. Slight sweetness from the malts. More vegetal and herbal notes. Dry and spicy. Finishes a bit bitter with a lingering dry spicy flavor. A decent pilsner.

Draft. Truly golden with a thin but dense head that lasted in a ring a fair part of the glass. Moderate carbonation, strikingly sweet on the first sip. Ever so slightly viscous, this stuff goes down easy. I wish it had a bit more bite to it or something complex about it. Maybe the slightest notion of apple on the finish.

Poured this from a bottle I picked up in Denver. Golden color with a thin, white head. Disipates quickly. A strong floral aroma. I smell this sitting next to me. The flavor has a great, crisp bitterness to it, and a medium body. I could drink quite a bit of this. A good pils.

On tap at Brews in Granville. I was told this was a czech pilsner?!? Poured a light golden color with creamy white head. Aroma of spring flowers! Taste was a bit of lemons and oranges and much more hops then I was expecting or cared for...Decent, I just dont like hops all that much yet!

Single bottle from Total Wine in Jacksonville, FL. Pours a nice gold color with a white head. Aroma is slightly floral, taste is well balanced and has a nice crisp bite on the end. Nice.

popephred (268) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Poured from the bottle. This pilsner had a golden body with a full white head, which slowly diminished. The pour also produced a slight cascade which I did not expect. Balanced aroma with a fair tone of hops. First taste was light and bitter. This was a moderate bodied beer with the bitterness expected in a pilsner. Carbonation was crisp and refreshing. I was pleased with this beer and felt it was well balanced. Not bad at all...

hopscotch (11029) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Bottle… Mostly clear, light yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Decent retention. Floral aroma with notes of honey and butterscotch. The flavor is well-balanced with lots of pale malt, light butterscotch and a lively hop bite. Medium-bodied and crisp with tingly carbonation. Lengthy, brisk, drying finish. Refreshing!
