My first from Sly Fox, their website indicates a Pennsylvania brewery that has been around for a while with, now, a second brewpub and several cash cows... among which Pikeland Pils is one of them.

I have to say Pikeland has average Looks for a Pils (it is unfiltered and an off-beat cloudiness.) Smells and Tastes are classic, mostly malt with grassy and bitter hops keeping the sweet in check. Sits OK in the mouth. OA: probably not distinguished, but then the style is designed that way.

12oz can into a pint glass. best by 7/17/17, so 9 months past its prime. lets see what happens,,,,

pale dull yellow body. decent off white head leaving okay lacing.

not much on the nose. faintly malty.

slightly bitter and sour over a solid malt background.

medium on the mouth, slightly bitter on the finish,

overall, although German pilsners aren't really my thing, this is an okay drink.

Nice two finger frothy white head. Hazy light yellow color. Nice lacing. Smell is fruity (lemon) bread. Taste is copper, then peppery bread and bitter hops. Complex. Feel is light side of medium and ample carbonation.

Decent look for a pils I guess. See through with a white head and a very light golden color. Smells like a pilsner, bready and beery malts mixed with some noble type hops. There is more here when I take a swig, bready malts combat with slightly biting hops and it end slightly sweet then bitter. Drying finish and well carbonated on the mouthfeel. Overall this is a good take on the pilsner style.

Solid pils that pours pale straw colored with a touch of haze that settles out. Fluffy white head that doesn't rise as much as I expected. Smells of pale malts and grassy hops. Taste is light, baggutte-like breadyness graced by subtle peppery hop flavor. Sweet and bitter with good balance. Crisp and clean finish to this light-bodied refresher.
