    I cannot pick any particular out of the rest as far as PA is concerned. I guess Prima Pils was pretty good.

    Okay, I'll play along... even though I am very close to Wisconsin and there are many more to build a list from there.

    Metropolitan Flywheel.

    The Wright Pils. Which has apparently become brewpub-only. Sigh.

    Southern Barrel Helles Lager is probably the best true pale lager in the state.

    COAST 32/50 Kolsch doesn't count I guess, as it is not a true lager in the American sense, but it is possibly the finest example of the style in the world. Their Pilsner is also excellent, but brewed infrequently enough that I wouldn't really give it consideration here.

    A tie between 2 Jack’s Abby beers:
    House Lager (essentially a helles)
    Hoponius Union (as long as IPLs count – it is pale and a lager)

    It was too sweet. With hops. That's why I think SSSH! The bohemian pilsner. The "bopils" that people like gives good bitterness and won't leave you to sink in a fat dough.

    Lots of high quality pale lagers in PA. If I was compelled to down select to one I suppose I would choose Troegs Sunshine Pils.

    Cheers!

    If we're including pilsners as pale lagers, then Firestone Walker Pivo Pils.

    Marshall Old Pavilion Pilsner. I would like to think something better is out there, as it is just okay...

    Agreed. But since it is limited release, I'll say Hoponious Union.
