PC Pils is an American Pale Lager brewed by Founders Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a shaker pint glass from a can.


The lager pours a canary yellow hue and is topped by an inch-thick cap of loose white froth that leaves behind some nice lace.


Hops dominate the aroma with a scent that’s floral and citrusy.


The palate is decidedly hoppy with a bite that’s floral, piney and packs lots of citrus.


Its feel is light and dry with ample carbonation.


PC Pils is a good brew but the name of the beer is misleading as it doesn’t really resemble a Pilsener. It has the citrus flavor of a typical American Pale but in a Pale Lager body. Hops dominate and malt has little presence. And so, if you’re looking for that classic pilsener taste, you’ll want another brew.

However, on the plus side, PC Pils has a really nice feel that’s just right for those warm summer days. It’s light, dry, effervescent, and so easy to drink.

About the American Pale Lager

The American Pale Lager is meant to be very light, near flavorless, highly carbonated, and served very cold. Originally meant to appeal to diet-conscious consumers, the style originated in the 1940s and began to gain popularity in the 1970s. By the 1990s, this Light Lager became the best-selling beer style in the United States.
