COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ninkasi used all German malt from Weyermann (pils, Munich, Caramunich and Dehusked Carafe) to concoct this Prussion-style brew. Two early additions of U.S. Hallertau hops provide a spicy balance. This beer was lagered for two months before being centrifuged, and then lagered another two months for a clean, crisp tasting experience at the festival.(Color: Brown)

Draft at The Pine Box, served through a randall with cascade hops, wicked. Darkest red brown with tan head. Very still, tobacco sweet, black tea. Sweet iced tea. Very vegetal, alright, nice change-up. Dry hopping on the base sweet, dark smoky lager.

On tap at Bier 30. Pours a dark mocha color with a medium white head. A nice nose of light roast and floral hops. The flavor is coca-cola like with some light caramel and roast, sweet fruity hops. Easy and tasty. A dark Pilsner?

troopie (2339) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Draught. Dark brown white headed beer. Much lacing. Balanced flavour between malt and hop. A bit of sweetness in the body. Some syrup in the finish.

For a lager I really liked this, plus what a wonderful name. Light malty body with a dark complexion, bitter with slight spicy hop profile, good yeast.

Tap @ OBF 2012. A brown pilsner, and the only pilsner I tried that at OBF 2012 that didn’t have that nasty phelonic flavor. Just a smooth roasty beer flavor.

Tap at OBF. Pours towards cola color! Aroma suggests fruit and malt. Med body. Flavor is lightly darkish malt (whatever that means) with a fair amount of noble hop. Lightly spicy hop. It’s not an over the top beer, but it’s extremely flavorful. It just hurts my mind to think this is "International-Style Pilsener". I’d like to think it’s a tasty ale. Brown color? Apparently intentional. Brown is the description in the OBF guide book.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2006
On tap at Concordia ale house. Pours a dark brown with a toasty malt and lightly hopped nose. The malts up front were really nice, good toasted/lightly roasty taste. Very balanced and smooth beer.
