COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Czechoslovakian style Pilsner is golden in color and hopped with a bunch of genuine Czechoslovakian Saaz hops. These hops provide a special floral aroma and a delightfully hoppy finish.

12oz bottle from a sampler pack. Pours a honet-gold color with a big fluffy white head. Earth &grass nose. Nice mouthfeel. Saaz evident. Some malt sweetness, but not as much as say, Pilsner Urquell. Still, a nice pilsner.

On tap at main brewery. Not a very distinguishable beer. Rather bland and sour. Couldn’t put my finger on whether it was trying to be European style or American.

Brewed in the USA...... On tap at the brewery !!! Pours a golden color with a large white head and some nice carbonation. Aroma of floral hops, grass and lemons. Taste of lemons, yeast, grains and hops. The mouthfeel crisp and clean, and easy to drink on a hot day. Overall, not bad for the style and the name is pretty cool.

LinusStick (2838) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Meh....a decent Bohemian Pilsner. Aroma was pretty weak. Biscuit and light caramel with a hint of yeast. Pour was a nice cloudy light gold with lots of rising bubbles and a one finger white head. Taste was average. There was a strong metallic flavor that came out in the aftertaste that was hard to get past. Very sweet in the front with biscuit and sweet light malt. As it warmed the metallic flavor backed off a bit. I’ve had many beers with Saaz hops and you can’t taste them in this. Drinkable but that’s it.

On tap at the brewery, had some of Sneeze’s. Reasonably good pils. Certainly doesn’t stack up to the other ones in the region (those are mostly german anyway), but not terrible either.

On tap @ Camp Hill. Pours a clear golden color with a white, lacing head. Light, crisp hoppy aroma, clean body. Quite light and drinkable. A good representation.

Fresh from a growller...good citrus aroma, hops at the forefront of the flavor with some lemon flavor tossed in as well.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUN 28, 2008
draft in gettysburg... hazy golden yellow pour with a thin white head and light drippy lacing. aroma of honey, lemon, light yeast and grassiness. it smells very fresh but mild. the flavor is the same with a dry, herbal, grassy ’pils’ finish. not bad. i’d drink this all day in the arizona summer...

blindeyedbetty (189) - Utah, USA - APR 20, 2008
12 oz. bottle poured filmy apricot orange with tight white head which quickly dissipated leaving little to no lacing. More carbonated than I anticipated. Fresh lemon and herb aromas; somewhat "earthy" with a highlight of citrus blossom. Front palate is hoppy with citrus, yeasty middle and clean piney finish with hoppy aftertaste. Much hoppier than I had expected but was an excellent companion to an herb-crusted chicken. Would recommend even though it didn’t really jibe with my idea of a traditional "pilsner."

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2007
On draft at Capones. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and grassy hops. The flavor is bitter, citrus, and a little thin. Not a bad pilsner, but an easily forgettable brew.
