As much as we at Upland Brewing Company care about the beer we brew, we’re not completely single-minded. Preservation Pilsner represents our efforts to do our part to protect the land that we call home. Preservation Pilsner is brewed in the traditional Bohemian style, originally created in the town of Pilsen in 1842, and offers a crisp, light taste without sacrificing its signature all-malt, mellow flavor. We age our Pilsner for an entire month to ensure each glass is up to the standards of a classically brewed pilsner.

The best Pilsner at the Valpo Beer Fest in 2011. That’s my opinion. Kept the rocky head longer than any other Pilsner served up - seemed to be more Bohemian than the other "German" style pilsners. I wish American brewers made this style more often - I like the Bohemian style pilsners, but by the time they get over here, they’re not as good as continental-made ones, and usually come in a green bottle.

Draft to pint at Upland. Looks good for the style; a transparent gold with fluffy white lacing. Smells and tastes doughy, pleasantly skunky, and slightly hoppy with a nice, snappy mouthfeel. A solid pils.

Draft. Bright gold pour, good white head, good retention/some lace. Aroma of spicy saaz hops, grass, biscuit, straw. Taste is more spicy saaz, grass, buttered biscuit, honey. Palate is soft, slick, lightly bitter finish. Pretty good.

drowland (9184) - Georgia, USA - AUG 29, 2012
8/11/12. GTMW. Golden pour with a nice enough barely off-white head. Pale and pilsner malts in the aroma with a bit of hay, grass, fruitiness, and spiciness. A parallel flavor with more of the grassiness and spice than the malt aspects. Not bad.

madvike (3305) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2012
On tap at GTMW - Pours yellow with a white head. Nose is honey with light floral and light grain. Taste is the same, light honey, floral hops and rustic grain. Nice carbonation. Nothing special, but solid.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Draft at Twenty Tap. Pours a brilliant gold with a frothy white head. Nose is very clean with a heavy Saaz spiciness. Some soft sweetness on the nose as well, fading into malt. On tasting, it is a bit low in terms of malt overally. Good medium bitterness with the spicy Saaz coming through nicely. Very clean. More malt and this would be top notch.

Tap from Indy tasting room. Lightly musty lactic malt and herbal hops aroma. Golden yellow with large head. Sweet creamy malt flavor with a moderate herbal hops finish. Very nice - really like the malt in this beer.

nimbleprop (8924) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 19, 2012
4oz pour at Churchkey is a crystal clear gold with some frothy white head. Standard nose, malty, grassy, yeast, light citrus. Flavor is solid, bread, sweet, honey, light lemon. Medium bodied, dry finish.

queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - JUN 8, 2012
