lamas (1635) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Bottle. A light, hazy copper pour with a small off-white head. Some caramel, sweet malts and corn in the grainy aroma. Medium to thin-bodied. Nicely balanced. Some grain, corn and caramel are present in the taste. A good beer when had with a meal. Not so good when the beer is the primary focus.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Bottle. Copper colored, with small white head. Aroma is malty and grainy. Flavor is similar, with bitterness in the middle. Grassy aftertaste. Finish is semi-crisp, but has too much caramel. Otherwise, fairly decent.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2006
Pretty malty, with a dark golden color, grassy flavor, poured with a large head, not really my favorite style, but overall a solid brew.

tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2005
Soft and mildly grainy aroma with some herbal hops. Brilliantly clear golden body is topped by a decent white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Sweet malt flavour has some notes of corn, and herbal hops with light finishing bitterness. Sampled on the PA trip 2005.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Thanks to Fatty for this. Pours a light golden with almost no head. Aroma of tea and lighter malts. A slightly roasty malt and pilsner flavor.

egajdzis (6436) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Poured a golden color with a thin, white head that left sparce lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy, stale hops, some dough and faint citrus. Taste was muddy, grass that had been walked over. Tasted very dirty, though smelled slightly better.

Draft at Pennsylvanika BC. Small ivory head that was mostly lasting, fine-small sized bubbles, very nice lacing, carbonated, transparent, and a gold hue. Malty and caramel aroma. Flavor was malty, caramel and thick tasting. Smooth mouthfeel. Light-medium body.

Hmmm 69 people before me did not notice that this is not a pilsner, but in fact a Vienna Lager. Although the name says pilsner it is not. This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy mostly diminishing white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild floral malts . Its mouth feel is initially tingly mildly malty with a lingering mellow thick palate. Its flavor contained mild hops and malts favoring the hops and was tasty. An above average brew.
