Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: aaronh on 02-03-2003

A German-style Pils with pale gold color and good body, this crisp, clean and very bitter beer has pronounced hop aroma and is made with the famous Hallertau hops. Kaiser Pils is brewed with triple decoction mashing. A beer worthy of an Emporer.

Very bitter for a Pilsner, recommended if you like the Pilsner from Northern Germany, e.g. Jever. Crisp and refreshing.

Aug 2013 On tap Rattle n Hum. So now it's summer & I'm thinkin' pils would be perfect. This contradiction of flavors leaves me wanting. Sure it's got crispness that I'm looking for, but it's body, as noted by the creamy head has it lingering on the tongue. Between the bitterness & the body, I'm looking for a glass of water on the side.

03/15/12 Solid body with a slight bite. Wholesome pilsner but not for summer drinking IMO. Better for fall.

Bottle from trade and sampled with 3 other Penn beers side by side. Pours clear light golden colored with a small white head that recedes quickly. Sweet yet slightly skunked lager smell, some hay, maybe a little honey. Flavor is light and crisp hay with a honey sweetness in the background and the slightly unpleasant finish I get with any lager. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Overall a decent pils.
