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.

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

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice deep straw color with a two finger foamy head that sticks around for a bit. Bright crisp saaz hop aromas with hints of bready malts and traces of citrus. On the palate its smooth and refreshing with nice punches of bitterness balanced by round bready malts.

Thanks Jason for hauling this all the way to Italy!
Appears a pale and clear yellow with a fluffy white head. Some nice lacing.
Smells citrusy, crisp hops, light malt.
Taste is a wonderful blend of hop crispness and light malt sweetness.
Light body with nice carbonation and super smooth.

Boring pilsner with very muted hops and a classic pale malt. Finishes dry and a bit "corny" even though i doubt theres any corn in it. Needs a bit more hops and bitterness for my taste not bad.
