Duquesne Pilsener Beer

"The Prince of Pilsener."  "Born out of a hard work ethic & a pride in craftsmanship - Duquesne Your Hometown Beer."  "The Finest Beer in Town!"  Duquesne is brewed in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.  This is a resurrection of what once was a popular beer in Pennsylvania, which had apparently died out but was revived by a new owner.

This beer pours dark golden in color, with a whirlwind of carbonation and a three-quarter inch high head of pure white foam that leaves medium lacing down the glass.  The aroma is crisp and bright, aromatic with hop bitterness and a touch of lager "funk", on a solid base of grainy malt.  The taste is slightly sweet, deep and rich light grain, with a smooth finish.  This is a really nice old style American lager.
