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.

Golden color with a small head and a light, grainy aroma. Flavor was a bit tart and cheap. Not really good at al.

An abomination of a beer. This does not resemble a czech pilsner. More of a coors lager.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 15, 2007
Draft at Camp Hill. Pours a hazy golden with a white head, and moderate lacing. Very faint aroma of Saaz hops. Initial flavor is typical pilsne, followed by some lemon and sweet grains. Dry and bitter finish, almost straw like. Not too bad for the style, perhaps a little under rated here.

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Draft. Pale gold pour with some aroma dna flavor of subdued hopcitrus and slight honey. Thin palate and somewhat deficient in complexity.

Had this at ABC’s Gettysburg bre pub. Has the taste of a pilsner, but it’s got some hops added to it. I’m not a big pilsner fan, but the hops in this brew does it for me

on tap-pours a white head that laces with gold/yellow color. Aroma is sweet grain. Taste is sweet grain, nice mild biting hops. Good carbonation.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2005
Pours a pale yellow color with a fizzy, white head. Aroma is grassy hops. Not a bad flavor. Mostly hops (fresh grass, pine needles) with some malts to smooth out the finish but still enough hops to overshadow the thin palate. It’s kind of odd how south east PA really has a grip on their Pils. Even a mediocre brewery like Appalacian can slide in a good pils on you.

One of ABC’s better offerings indeed. Very tasty and refreshing but not too light. Although not a true Pilsner, this is a very fine tasting beer that I would order again.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Draft at Appalachian BC. Medium white fizzy head that mostly diminished, fine-small sized bubbles, lacing was sparse, minimal carbonation, transparent, and a yellow hue. Aroma was malty and floral hops. Sweet, malty and hoppy flavor. Tingly, thin mouthfeel. Light body.

beerlover82 (220) - Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2005
Pale orange/yellow with foamy white head but little to no lacing. Mild hop and malt aroma. Mouthfeel is thin to medium, a little watery.Nothing special, not even for a pilsner.
