Pilsners: Take ’em to the ballgame

Many beer styles &ldquo;make an enjoyable &shy;companion to a good ballgame,&rdquo; said Eric Asimov in<em> The New York Times, </em>but none more so than a pilsner. Here are three of the best.

Watching a baseball game while enjoying a cold beer can be pure heaven, said Eric Asimov in The New York Times. Or pure hell, if you’re at a ballpark and have to raid your child’s college fund to pay for a $9 can of Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Many beer styles “make an enjoyable ­companion to a good ballgame,” but none more so than a pilsner. In a recent tasting, a Times panel sampled 18 of the best. Using a four-star rating system, we named these our top prospects.

Prima Pils, Downingtown, Pa. ($4, 22 oz)
***1/2 “Wonderfully refreshing with a lingering bitterness.”

Kaiser Pils, Pittsburgh ($8, 750 ml) 
***1/2 Bracingly hoppy and marked by lively citrus flavors.

Lakefront Klisch Pilsner, Milwaukee ($1.50, 112 oz) 
*** Earthy floral aromas.
