Poured 12oz bottle into Pils glass. A clear pale straw yellow with a nice 2 finger white head. Webbed lacing and micro bubbles float upward. Aroma is pleasant with some German malts, grain, and hops of a lemon scent. Flavor is very similar to the nose and yields a very clean crisp finish. A decent Pils from PSB.

The rubber mills pils is a borderline blonde ale...but there is enough, Im guessing saaz hop, to provide the grass like bitterness one looks for in a pils. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a very drinkable beer and worth a shot.

Rubber Mills Pils pours a clear bright yellow color with a big fizzy head. There really isn't any aroma. The taste is light and crisp, some hop flavors do come through. Nice body, good feel. Overall it is a lighter, but nicely flavored, and nicely hopped pils.

Body is a crystal clear yellow, a shade or two darker than a typical macro. Head is thich, a good two fingers that hangs around and leaves decent lacing.

The nose brings honey, malt sweetness and a touch of floral hops.

Hops come through a lot more in the flavor with citrus notes dominant. the sweet maltiness is there as well.

Really smooth and delectable, a pleasant surprise for sure. I look forward to trying some other Pearl Street offerings.

A: Nearly transparent, straw-colored body. But for the soft, fluffy white head, it could be any other macrobrew.

S: Sweet, mildly acidic. Not much on the nose.

T: Grassy and sour. Reminds me of lemon disinfectant (in a good way). Hops subtle but noticeable under the pilsener sweetness.

M: Crisp and light at the beginning, with just a bit of tacky/resiny lingering on the back end.

O: A complex and interesting pilsner, one I'd definitely like to try again.

Try it again? 4 - Probably.

Pours a frothy, soft, white head that has commendable persistence and laces the glass nicely. Surprisingly robust hop aroma of grains. Faint gold, almost clear color seems strange considering the aroma. Whoa! Don't let the color fool you! This is bright and very assertively hopped. Hoppy, bitter notes of grassy grains and a touch of spiciness and citrus (almost a little pine, too). The finish is nice as the bitterness lingers across a solid malt back.

This is a real surprising Pilsner. It smelled good, looked weak, and tastes very good. It is definitely hopped more than the style typically is, but it's still balanced enough to be pleasant and it still allows the malt to show through.
I really, really like this one. It's very solid and would make a PERFECT session lager!
I need to get another chance to head up to beautiful LaCrosse and get this on tap!
