fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Slightly skunky with some horse blanket and mothballs. Too malty & not crisp or hoppy enough for the style. Tastes like a crappy central-European lager. Has some strange sweet notes - caramel, muted fruit flavors, cereal, etc. Tastes nothing like a proper Czech pils. Another clunker from BBC... other than the 2 or 3 decent stouts and porters that they make, this brewery has a history of disappointing me time and time again.

TURDFERGUSON (4050) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Tap at Noho brewpub. Clearish golden with light white lace. Smells like a diacetyl bomb. Flavor is grainy and buttery. Not drinkable.

thicksuds (449) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Solid beer, easy drinking, thirst quenching, nice pour, not as clear as I thought it would be, a little mellow for a Pils, I was expecting it to be a little sharper and more crisp, hops are a little dull to me, but all in all a good beer.

Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly to a thin leaving some lace. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Almost clear pale yellow/amber color. Nose is grassy hops. Flavor is sweet grass with light bitterness. Good pilsner. Their site puts the ABV at 5.5%. $4.50 for a 22oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA.

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Clear straw gold; thin head. Czech? Smells very German, Northern. Farmhousy Saaz hops; slightly dirty. Initially quite carbonated. Sweetness comes in at the back. Medium body, but the hops are lean. Not bad, but I would like this less sweet, a little hoppier, and maybe a little lighter.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 7, 2010
22oz bottle. "Czech Pilsner" Pours a golden color with a small, white fluffy head that recedes leaving lacing and a thick foamy ring. Nose is grassy, toasted grains. Palate is refreshing with a slickness that is followed by a light sticky feeling. Flavor is grassy hops, toasty grains, a light biscuity note.

thornecb (5543) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Bottled as Czech pilsner. Pours deep gold into a pilsner glass. White head recedes to hug rim. Honey and bread aromas. Off toasted nuts upfront turning to butterscotch and caramel in the lasting finish.

JAXSON (555) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Bottle, thanks Cody. Pours a clear light orange with a small white head. Largely blank nose with some light grains and hops, certainly nothing off-putting though. Flavor is good, though I’m a sucker for this style. Very good balance between malt and hops, this comes off as fresh and bright, with a short, crisp finish. Super nice flavor here. Not as grassy as many Czech pils, but the balance and profile is superb. A lot of people will pass this one over as it’s not super exciting, but it’s quite well crafted.
