2.55/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Looks fine in the glass, clear, golden but no head

smells alright, nothing great, maybe a little winey

sweetish, little finish, not much hop activity

perhaps a little gassy

Well, the anticipation is over. I got this item from the "Six and Subs" shop out near Centerville a few weks ago and was waiting for the opportune time to risk drinking it. While it's not the grimmest of the grim, it's nothing you'd want to try again. I would say it's worse than Lionshead Pils, even if similar, and nowhere's good as the Lemp. With all due respect to the proprietors, let's hope this enterprise dies a quick and well deserved death...

3.03/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

It pours a clear golden yellow with moderate carbonation. A full finger of white head sustains a short while, slipping away to a thin frothy veneer. Fine lacing rules the inside of the glass.

In the aroma, pale toasted grain with a distant berry sweetness plays off a peppery hop presence. Mild citrus acts to help keep things clean.

Upon tasting, the toasted grain is sweet, with berry and sugary cereal. These go crisp as the hops assert with a thin but present spiciness that carries a grassy note. A touch of dough and a general, broad bitterness carry through to a similar finish that is quite clean. It comes across as a standard-issue, middle of the road lager.

Light bodied, the carbonation peps a bit, but the flow is quick and pretty much devoid of legacy.

The name caught my eye. What does that say about me? Well, I'll forego the self-psychoanalysis here and instead just say that perhaps I should worry more about the beer in the bottle than the name on it. Not that it's a gimmick beer, because it's better than that, but despite the clean character, it's not any better than moderately drinkable. I think I'm done with Intercourse for now, thank you.

Intercourse- Bareville Pilsner

A- Light, almost clear copper with a moderate head and decent lacing.
S- barely noticeable hints of toasted grain and sweet honey.
T- Light sweet honey dropped onto light toasted grainy bread. Thick malty finish.
M- Light, a tad watery even, but redeeming with a good grainy malty finish.

Overall- A low review but not a bad beer here. Just a bit too watered down. Worth a try though!

3.4/5  rDev +18.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bareville Pilsner pours a clear deep-golden body beneath a short head of white foam that dwindles shortly to a wide collar and whispy surface covering. Some sticky lace remains after each sip but eventually erodes. Nice appearance though.

The aroma offers a mild grainy maltiness and some grassy hops. It's clean and pleasant.

In the mouth it's medium bodied and smooth with a delicate, moderate carbonation.

The maltiness dominates the flavor with a touch of breadiness over its subtly grassy, floral, and very lightly spicy hoppiness backing. It's only mildly bitter, but it doesn't lean towards sweetness. Clean and well-balanced. Drying in the finish with a smear of grassy hops left behind.

Not a bad beer by any means, but at the same time certainly not exciting.

2.75/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a pale yellow color that is reminiscent of macro lager. Looses points for this color. the head is stark white and very loose. It does leave a modicum of lace after it recedes, which was a longer period than I expected.

Smells a little of grain and dms. But there is not much here in the aroma dept.

Taste is weak, grainy and a touch sweet.

Mouthfell is light body with a mild carboantion. These is a slight stickiness on the ;ips after the swallow.

This one does not measure up to the other fine pennsylvania pilsners out there.

3.48/5  rDev +20.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured a light medium gold with a thin ½ finger dull white head that displayed only average retention. The carbonation was very soft.

S: sweet sugary cereal grains and light lemon hints. Very similar to their MJLP.

T: sugary and sweet, cereal grains with some fresh lemons. Clean, crisp with a nice fresh citrus tang on the finish. There is also some sweet strawberry notes. The hopping is moderate per style with a bright lemon grain flavor. Overall pretty similar to their MJLP but with sweeter and with some strawberry hints.

M: light, with a soft carbonation, dry lemon peels on the fade.

D: Refreshing on a hot summer day, pretty decent drinkability, no complaints here, and one I can put down while socializing at a picnic and be happy with.

3.18/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle into a pint glass. Short white head about .5" formed and was then quickly gone. The beer was a light golden color and very clear. Not much to the nose, a little malt. Reminds me of the smell of Yuengling. Taste is of light malt, crisp and pretty clean. Taste lingers for just a moment. Mouthfeel is medium light with tingly carbonation. This beer is good on a hot summer day. Not great, but I would drink this before any macro.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

The beer poured with slight carbonation and a thin head. The yellow tones of the beer hinted at a macrobrew feel. The nose is very light, kinda like that "beer of your grandfather" feel.

The mouthfeel was suprisingly good with just enough taste for the back of the mouth. There is a slight after taste that lingers for a very short time.

I has this beer both slightly chilled and properly chilled. This is a good one to have cold. The body and taste are light enough that the averge macrobeer guy would use this as the gatekeeper to better bres, but for the beer lover, an easy sipper for a hot day.
