Had on-tap at Yogi's.
A - Deep golden color with very little head.
S - Slightly sweet with some grassy/floral aromas.
T - Grassy/spicy upfront with hints of noble hops. Finishes slightly sweet with a little alcohol burn that lingers on the tongue.
M - Thick for a pilsner. Lots of malts in this one.
D - Very good for the style (Dortmunder) although a little sweet for my personal taste. Very solid beer although after a couple the sweetness becomes a bit too much.
Serving type: on-tap

Quite a hoppy little devil, aren't you? Sharply grassy, spicy, and floral in taste but then with the support of pilsner malt and other vegital portions for an earthy sweet/bitter interplay.
People's Pilsner opens with a slightly hazy medium straw color and steady streams of carbonation. A light and sparse head tops the beer. Low in retention, but the lacing is ample despite such timid head character.
Aromas and flavors are heavily focused on vegital components that start with a spicy and grassy hop profile that develops into a gripping bitterness in finish. Along the way, the modest malt sweetness introduces flavors of raw grain, corn, and husk. Otherwise herbal, softly malty, and with an underlying cracker-like bready sweetness that is burried under the hop and grain profles.
Quite crisp, dry, and refreshing throughout. The early light creaminess is short lived as the beer ushers in a quick dryness, grainy bite, and slight alcohol warmth in finish.
Farily typical of German Lagers, I would have prefered a more herbal and floral hop character along with a smoother bitterness. I appreciate also the crisp malt flavor and feel, but would have liked less grain and corn taste to allow the clean malt crispness to shine.
