I picked up 2 in a mix-a-six, and was not impressed at all. I'm always down to try a new pale lager because it is my favorite beer style. Not this one. This is an attempt to produce a pale lager gone horribly awry! It should be called Frankenstein's Haus not Beach Haus! If you were to combine Schaefer with some IPA, this is what you would get! My suggestion is to avoid it all together.

Pours a golden straw color that is slightly darker than the average AAL. The white head dissipates rather quickly but leaves some lace behind nonetheless. The nose is indicative of the pilsner malt used. The flavor follows the nose.
This offering is a notch above the average AAL. It is nothing to write home about but it lacks that distinctive corn essence that is so annoying in most AALs. I suppose that makes it something pleasant to drink in copious quantities at a beach party - but that is about it.

I had a fresh pint of this poured from the tap at a beer dinner at a new speakeasy in my area and it exceeded my expectations - maybe I set the bar too low for pilsners.
The rep there was from the company which helped as he was actually engaging and super knowledgable about the beer ( this guy had hops for me to sniff!) The ale was clean and clear from the pour and had all the substance of a real beer.
Smell? Semi-sweet. Kinda cereal, like Special K but actually looking forward to consuming it.
Taste? Is where the gravy is. It starts off sweet but you get a bite of bitterness too and then it drops off. Clean finish.

Beach Haus is an excellent pilsner! The color is a rich straw golden color. The taste is refreshing and full of lively flavor. A great way to get Miller Lite drinkers to break into craft beers yet not totally outside of their comfort zone! East Coast Beer did a great job bring back the American pilsner from extinction!

PJ, a rep from Beach Haus, came to the store I work at on the night that we had a tasting. Thanks for being really nice and professional, and for providing insight into the brewery expansion process to staff and customers who had questions about it, myself included. It was a fun night with great beer from a brewery I had otherwise not heard of.
The Classic American Pilsner was my favorite of the three offerings (the others being the Cruiser IPA and Winter Rental Schwarzbier). It had a standard appearance for the style, with a bit more of a pleasant yeasty and grainy smell than I expected out of an American pilsner, although I admittedly don't drink them too frequently. That smell continued into the taste, which made for a very nice offering. Crisp mouthfeel as expected made for an overall enjoyable and easy drinking beer.
It's not the kind of beer that'll blow anyone's world, but for something that I'd never heard of before, it's a very nice casual beer to replace the BMC staples. This may end up being my light summer beer when the time comes. Good luck, Beach Haus!

Pours golden with a white head that thins and stays. Some lacing sticks.
The smell is grainy with a mild floral/grassy hop touch.
The taste is clean - some sweetness with a touch of floral dryness in the crisp finish. Pretty smooth.
Not a bad easy-drinking "American Pilsner". A decent choice over the BMC lagers.
