Avery Joe's Premium American Pilsner

Avery Joe’s Premium American Pilsner

User Rating:

In the past years I would have momentarily glanced at the Avery beers on shelves at liquor stores and walked on by.  Reflecting back on that a few months ago I realized it was due to a simple factor.  The labeling.  Their old labels seems out of date making me think that this amazing brewery […] ...

Left Hand Polestar Pilsner

Left Hand Polestar Pilsner

User Rating:

I am constantly trying to convert people. Those who hold a Big Three beer in their hand, clutching it with a death grip as though it were their key to survival, those are my mission. Last night, I was attempting to spread just such a gospel. I volunteered to bring drinks to a neighborhood get-together […] ... [Read more]

Oskar Blues Mama's Little Yella Pils

Oskar Blues Mama’s Little Yella Pils

User Rating:

It is seldom that you come across a good Pilsner in a can. Let’s face it; most of them are mediocre macro-made brews not deserving of a pint glass pour. Thanks to Discount Liquors in Milwaukee I was able to get my hands on some Oskar Blues (their entire line-up to be exact). Not sure […] ... [Read more]

Bitburger Premium Pils

Bitburger Premium Pils

User Rating:

Now that summer weather has officially hit Chicago (80s/90s and sticky), I’ve found myself quaffing some lighter, crisper beers. Nothing in any way wrong with Double IPAs and Imperial Stouts, but when I get home with nothing to show for myself but a sweaty shirt, my parched mouth isn’t thinking about heavily roasted malts and […] ...

Victory Prima Pils

User Rating:

Michael: After a six day strep-induced beer drinking hiatus, I am cautiously stepping back into the arena. With a pilsner, I figured I couldn’t go wrong. It seemed like an easy drinking style and my still tender tonsils couldn’t handle much more than that. After reading a bit more about beer recently ala Randy Mosher’s […] ... [Read more]

Capital Pilsner

User Rating:

This one’s a gold medal winner. And not by my review, but by the Beverage Institute’s World Beer Championships of 2009. Anxious to put my yet-to-be-used pilsner glass to good use, I poured this Capital brew with anticipation. Pouring gently, but not timidly, the brew still gathered a nice puffy, white head just about 2 […] ... [Read more]

Three Floyds Samurai Gazebo

User Rating:

While at the Bavarian Lodge for the rare Mad Hatter flight I stayed for dinner and needed another brew. I found on the list of tap beers an interesting lager by 3 Floyds called Samurai Gazeebo. Since I’m a sucker for limited edition/one-off beers I had to give it a try. I was also attracted […] ... [Read more]

Samuel Adams Noble Pils

User Rating:

Having been given the go-ahead from a fellow PHM I’m going to…wait for it…hop right into this review. Today’s selection is the new Spring seasonal by Sam Adams. Winning the Beer Lover’s Choice Award, Noble Pils was recently rolled out in place of their White Ale. I personally think this could be a Summer options, […] ... [Read more]

Steam Whistle Premium Pilsner

User Rating:

Bombardier Q400. 32.8 M length, 28.4 M Wingspan, 667 km/h speed. As you may have guessed these are not the specs of the beer I’m reviewing. They are in fact, some of the specs of the plane I find myself in as currently I am flying somewhere over central Ontario from Toronto to Chicago. At […] ... [Read more]

Peter’s Brand Pilsner

User Rating:

Cracked this import while watching some great playoff football. Not a lot of history on this brew nor its brewery. So if any of you beer connoisseurs have a little insight on Peters brand, feel free to share it with us! With that, I will dive right in… At first pour, this true pilsner was […] ... [Read more]
