My favorite locally brewed beer. Great for everyday. More flavor than a typical pilsner. Probably more like an ale.

12 oz bottle via Malt of The earth beer club. Pours a nice clear golden color with an average size head and tons of tiny bubbles laucnhing to the top of the Pilsner glass. Nice mild aroma, some grassiness, English smelling hops, some nice caramel malts. Taste starts out with some mild maltiness, then some mellow orange hoppiness, and then a very nice mellow mandarin orange finish. I always have trouble describing the aroma and flavors of pilsners as they are so subtle and subdued. Lightbodied and refreshing. Nonetheless, this is the best Pilsner i have tasted to date. Very very drinkable....heh and i see that it is actually classified as a Veinna, a lager? Maybe that is why it is tastier than other Pilsners, lol...

Bottle. Amber, with a thin head. Nice malt aroma with a very fruity aroma for a lager. Medium body and very smooth. A bit oily. But, for a lager, this has a great fruity taste.

Has a grassy, hay, noble aroma along with a faint whiff of malt and a hint of, oddly, powdered sugar. The body is a bright golden color and holds a diminishing white head that is roughly a thumb thuck at the pour’s finish. The first sip is lightly sweet, malt accented with some very faint caramel hints and a grassy flavor through the middle. Pretty damn nice in a "I’m in the mood for a lager" kind of way. A gold colored and less hopped version of Sam Adams if I had to compare it to something. I think I’m gonna buy a sixer of this for my Sister and Brother-in-law who refuse to come off the lagers.

Bottle 355 ml
Appearance: pours as clear dark golden brew. Medium long lived mid dense top.
Nose: Clean , fresh properly constructed pils aroma. Meadow like hop profile often found in Bavarian and Bohemian lagers. Very neat refreshing softness.
Flavor/Palate : Medium light bodied. Golden malt bottom. Not to heavy with delicate yet pronounced hops. Very drinkable amber pils from Penn Brewery. Pleasant surprise.
As of Feb 2009 this beer is higly underrated.

T: Slightly sweet with some grainy flavors. Slight hint of bubble gum. Slight hop presence. Slightly hefeweizen-esque. M: Very light mouthfeel with minimal carbonation and no alcohol presence. Very smooth. D: Exceedingly drinkable. Definitely looking forward to these over the summer. Fiancee thinks its "okay."

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber to orange color with a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. The lacing graced the glass nicely. The smell had a nice assortment of Germany pilsner malts and had a nice light bitter crisp hops to complement the aroma. The taste was mainly sweet and crisp. The palate sat fairly light and sessionable. There was a good crisp carbonation about it. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Pilsener.

A- transparent dark yellow body with thin white head that disappears quickly. No lacing left behind in the glass. S- some malt and light hops. T- Initial taste is quite malty. This is followed by a light refreshing hop aftertaste. Good but nothing special. P- Light carbonation and medium weight body. Well done. O- This was pretty good overall. I’d session it if it was the best choice available. My least favorite of the Penn Brews that I have had so far and it happens to be their flagship. go figure. Its a decent pils but I probably won’t have it again being that I like their other brews so much. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-18-2007 16:12:26 --
