mansquito (3346) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Alewife, Queens tap: Pours golden with white head. Aroma is a bit of grass, plenty of Czech hops, and nice bready malts. This pilsner, while not excessively complicated fits the bill of a clean Czech pils very well. Nice amount of hoppy bitterness. Very well balanced with the bready malts. A great refreshing beer this was.

gnomungus (51) - - JUN 30, 2014
A light and crisp beginning with some surprising malt drops into a lighter pils hops swirl, which gives way to lasting pilsner power. Very Czech, very delicious.

BLADT (586) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2014
From keg. Clear gold in glass with white head. No lacing to note. Aroma is hay, grass. Maybe some fruit and honey sweetness. Faint corn. Taste pulls together nicely: grass tempered with medium sweetness. Light grain. Minor league musk. Some bready malts. Good.

tcane7 (1660) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2014
Taster at the brewery. Pours a clean gold with thin, diminishing white head. Aroma is grass, hay, honey. Medium body. Taste follows aroma with a little more residual sweetness than I would have liked but a decent Pils

tgncc (2774) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAR 9, 2014
The flavor is grass, caramel, corn. The appearance is clear gold, white head. The flavor is grass, corn sweetness. The finish is grass spicy hops, not very intense. Medium in body, maybe slightly thin. Doesnt feel like a Czech pils, as they refer to it.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 30, 2013
shimmering gold, puffy white head gone fast, tepid after. Grain and corn nose, light grass bitterness but a bit cheap. Flavor more balanced, heavy grain bitterness a la braumeister mid, hints of grass and plastic through end. Spritzy carbonation, few off notes but nice throughout.
