Draft, Chicago At the downtown Rock Bottom, they named it “Rooftop Pilsner” for its rooftop dining area (with a fine view of all the much taller yuppie condos surrounding it). They had to brew this in a hurry following the May windstorm that blew their rooftop taps open, draining all of their serving tanks!
Pretty good for a style which we've all had bad examples of. Have to give a "5" for appearance, it looks just right. Fizzy head leaves a golden yellow color underneath. No off-flaveors to speak of. Nice citrsy hop aroma which I found to be a little stronger after a scoop of salsa. As the Milwaukee corrspondent notes, a decent session beer.
Charlotte NC Prospector’s Pilsner-on tap-pours a creamy white head with yellow color. Aroma is sweet grain, faint hops. Taste is sweet grain, faint hops, dry, distinct biting hop finish. Nice.

On tap at Arlington location, 11/17/05, listed at 6.0% abv. Light golden, short head, good lacing. Aroma is sweet with a warm hop. Not much detectable Saaz hop in this version - just lots and lots of Hallertau. Taste was sugary sweet malts and a warm bitter finish. I was hoping for something more exciting on this one. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2003
