A bottle left over from the variety pack I bought for Superbowl weekend. Poured into my Prima Pils glass.
A: With a gentle pour this beer appears golden to light copper in color with one finger head of white foam. Gentle carbonation sifts upwards though the tall pilsner glass.
S: At first, a little nutty from the malts. No hops. Rather clean smelling after putting the German malt aromas aside.
T: Nutty, toasty, and bready malt flavors. Slight hop taste comes afterwards - likely of the noble hop family.
M: A light tasting, slightly bitter beer with an even balance between the malt & hops.
O: Not a bad beer by any means. Not great, yet not subpar by any means. Having lived in Pittsburgh for a number of years, I'll come back to this one if nothing other than supporting a PA brewery. Cheers!

Well now I get it. I ordered this because I wanted a pils. I was disappointed because I thought it tasted more like a vienna lager. Yeah for my palate, boo for my taste buds. Reviewed as a pilsner since that what the handle read.
This was kind of a hazy amber color. It had off tasting muddled, grainy sweetness. This was probably at least partially due to dirty lines at PNC park. But still...
Serving type: on-tap
