    Been lurking in the mayberry for a while. Kinda bummed I just stumbled across it actually. People seem a lot more nice than the other forums.

    Anyways, I know there's been beer threads before so I apologize in advance for asking this. I'm a bit of hop head but I've been craving a light crisp ICE COLD lager/pilsner....Not sure if ice cold is faux pas in germany but I wonder if any one had any recommendations? Doesn't have to be German...Germany just caught my mind for some reason. I'm just looking for something that's not like a huge commercial company.

    Thank you!

    For an American Pils, try Smutty Nose Vunderbar! Pilsner. For German try Jever, Krombacher or or Bitbuger.

    Depends on where you live as to whether or not you can get it but Great Lakes Brewing Company Dortmunder Gold is really good.

    You should be able to find Scrimshaw at Whole Foods.

    Not a pilsner guy but agree with tapping the knowledge in the beer thread. They can set you on some great ones.

    Peak Organic Fresh Cut, Firestone Pivo Pils, Sam Adams Noble Pils are all good hoppy pilsners. Also Jack Abby Pro-Am pilsner.

    Virginia Beach, so with a little effort and interwebz, I can probably get whatever I want. I've seen Great Lakes here. Think I'm in summer mode all of sudden! :icon_lol:

    I've liked most of what I've gotten from GLB, I will have to try that.

    I mostly just drink Notch Session Pilsner, very drinkable, low abv, not German. It's got all the redeeming qualities if the mass produced Americans, with more taste and passes by beer snobs without being detected as essentially a light refreshing beer.

    I'd recommend Firestone's Oaktoberfest, but it's not the fall anymore. Categorized as a Marzen but I found it flavor-wise to be more like a German Pils. They also make Pivo Pils which body wise is more like a crisp pils but with more hop flavors.
