Golden pour. Small white head. Little lacing, if any. Aroma is pils-like. Taste is the same with a slight yeast presence. A pils.

On tap at Ebenezer’s. Served in a cervoise. Hazy pale orange. Fluffy white head. Smells bready and kinda yeasty. Light fruitiness. Tastes very bready. Light grassy hop bite. Clean finish with a nice bitterness. Medium body. Creamy and smooth carbonation. Well made.

b3shine (6784) - Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2015
11.2 oz bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a mostly transparent bright gold with white head. Smells of a nice balance of Saaz hops, biscuit, and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced, with a medium-light to medium-bodied mouthfeel that lacks the snappiness characteristic of the style. Not bad, but smells better that it tastes.

Squat bottle pours hazy pale orange with 3 finger head. Nose is round wet corn grain, some light grassy orange, biscuit, light yeast spice. Taste is clean, medium body, round orange zest, wet grain, biscuit, corn, apple, pepper. Finishes dry, some doughy biscuit, medium bitterness, grassy grain, corn. Well done.

oh6gdx (23002) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2015
Bottled@Oud Arsenaal, Antwerp. Golden colour, small white head. aroma si floral, some bready notes along with herbs to it. Flavour is fruity, floral, some herbal and yeasty notes as well. Surprisingly fruity and refreshing for a Czech style pils...

Marheb (3291) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 9, 2015
(En fût à The Public House La Jolla): Un nez fromagé et citronné derrière lequel se cache une purée de banane. Le corps est aérien mais protéiné, l’amertume docile.

slowrunner77 (7284) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 7, 2015
better than the standard, but nothing that really stands out. a crisp malty lager with a tiny bit of a bite on the finish.

yourilevesque (492) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2015
Bouteille achetée à la brasserie. Bien sûr, il s?agit d?une Lager et je félicite cette brasserie pour cette initiative; elle qui pourrait facilement s?asseoir sur son succès assuré par ses gueuzes magnifiques. Nez de Lager où on sent très bien l?apport d?un malt léger mais très présent. Cette Lager est ronde est complète au nez. En bouche, les levures sont sauvages, agressives sans toutefois être déplaisantes. Au contraire, les Lagers sont si souvent décevantes (pour moi) que le côté funky de celle-ci me réconcilie avec le style - même si je sais pertinemment qu?elle est une très mauvaise représente du style Lager. Une acidité, du citron, un corps très agréable, amertume affirmée en fin de bouche, certainement la meilleure Lager que j?ai bu depuis très très longtemps!

Appearance: clear bright gold, short creamy white head. Aroma:bright citrus, some belgian-y yeast, cracker and pie crust, light grassy hops. Taste: very slight tartness, toasted white bread, bright lemon, grass, floral honey, white pepper. Finish: clean, with a bit of lingering yeasty spice and quickly drying. Notes: Czech pils? Felt very Belgian-y, with lots of fruity yeast character on top of a light, crisp, delicious lager. Loved it, but it wasn’t a traditional pils by any means. Favorite of the day. Draught at Birch and Barley in Washington, DC.
