    Hit me with your best shot.

    Pils Urquel is good & I have had a good local one (Lakefront Brewery something or other).

    What else should I try?

    I recommend you don't drink pilsners because they are boring.

    Pilsner is a lager.

    TN, Troeg's Sunshine Pils is nice...a little on the hoppy side of the style, but good. It's a seasonal, so look for it over the summer.

    For a more classic pilsner, check out Budweiser Budvar, called Czechvar in the US, and no, it's no relation to the Budweiser most 'mericans know and love.

    Thanks. I will look for those.

    As for Pils being boring....meh....overly hopped beers & sweet ass ales are boring to me now.

    Thanks for the insight, skatetokil.

    I've enjoyed EKU Pils and Mahr's (German Pilseners). Both are probably pretty widely available.
