It smells good, looks good, but the taste and palate totally lack. Hop forward, which can be great, but no malt backbone whatsoever and a lingering acidity (this tends to happen with Berkshire beers). Essentially hopwater, and this rating from a pilsner lover.

Draft @ Coalhouse Pizza. This has the crispness of typical pilseners but there’s an extra moderate malt breadiness that is unique. Due to this breadiness, this has less drinkability than most pilseners, but this is still quite tasty.

Tried this last night on tap at a beer tasting and along with 40+ local beers (New England) Always been a fan of BBC but never tried this. Great clean crisp taste, plain and simple, a great tasting beer.

No. This beer isn’t bourbon-barrel aged, or passed through a rhubarb randall. I don’t care about IBUs or drink-by dates (*Stone*). We’re tired of all this beer snobbery, hogwash, and pretentiousness. Let’s get back to why we started drinking beer in the first place. Pure, untainted, balance of hops, yeast, and malt. Beer that tastes like it was made on an old family farm. Stinky, green, rooty. Crisp, lush, fresh. Creamy, quenching, classic. Don’t miss this year’s iteration of Berkshire Czech Style Pils.

Nice and clean. Had on tap at the Grog, and boy was I impressed. Flavor profile of rice flour, Saaz hops, pilsner malt, and, German yeast, dandelions, and cotton. Crisp. Very respectable.

Pours a clear yellow color with a white head that has little retention. Aroma is of bready malts, grass, and a little hops. Flavor is of hops, malts, aluminum, and wheat. A nice crisp finish.

Pours pale gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Caramel and saaz aromas. Soft with sweet caramel upfront turning to slightly sour hay in the medium length finish.

Bomber from Whole Foods Market Darien. Pouurs a slightly hazy yellow color with a medium sized creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral and grassy hops and bready malts. The taste is grassy and floral with a pale malt finish. Medium bodied. Decent.

Certainly above replacement-level. Refreshing and crisp. Hop notes are mellow. Color is light. Drinkability is high. Overall, well done.
