It’s Wednesday night and with my corporate travel program, I had just enough miles to qualify for a trip to Pittsburgh. Actually, I had a quick overnight trip to the Burgh for work and found myself in the Ruth’s Chris bar with a little time on my hands. A quick review of the beer menu brought a bottle of local flavor to my attention. I had initially thought about a tried and true Iron City Light but opted instead for a Penn Pilsner, the flagship brand of Pittsburgh’s own, Pennsylvania Brewing Company. Winner of the Gold medal from the National Beverage Tasting Institute in 2001, the Penn Pilsner is an amber Vienna-style lager beer that has a delicate hop aroma. Unfortunately, while it is marketed as smooth, mellow and full-bodied, the bottle that I had lacked flavor and seemed a little flat. I would like to give the restaurant the benefit of the doubt as far as turning over their stock, so I am left unimpressed with Penn Brew’s effort. I would give it a C.
Some legal stuff…
