A distinct but mild bitterness on the front end followed by a slight hop middle and a clean, refreshing finish. Poured in a glass, SAAZ Republic Pilz is a thing of beuty, sporting a dense, white head atop a golden yellow body.

Big Rock Saaz Republic Pilz Brownish red pour. A bit rusty. Clingy thick tan head. Weak scent hoppy a bit grassy. Mouth is not nearly so subdued. Sweet start. Like a sweet European pilsner but better. A touch of hops I the finish. Not too bitter. Easy to drink.

Namlig (7) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2014 does not count
Tasted from the can, from TBS in Toronto. Very close rendition of classic Czech blonde lager. Reminds me a lot of Pilsner Urquell even as tasted in Prague or the cold-shipped U.S. version, fresh Czechvar too. Very fine effort from Big Rock.

probstblueribbon (2760) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2014
473 mL can from TBS, served cold in a tulip glass. Clear bright golden with a thin, fragile white head. Grassy hops and boiled cereals, some vague citrus petrol, maybe a touch floral, a little peppery. Medium body, moderate effervescence, feel more harsh than a Pils should. Light maltiness, done grassiness, hay, straw, green and herbal; dry with gentle bitterness and a finish that starts with a lot of boiled/cooked cereal and finishes with a vaguely grassy, odd finish. Didn’t work very well.

MarkoR (457) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
473 ml can from The Beer Store. Pours a clear golden colour with small white head. Aroma is grains, floral. Taste is floral, grassy. Decent but will be easily forgotten.

Raistlin (90) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Really enjoyed this beer. It had a golden colour with average thin white head. It had average carbonation, but just the right amount of hops. Very smooth drinking beer, with enough after taste to give you slight taste of bitterness.

Masterkush7 (381) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
Can from the mix pack. Pours yellow. Aroma is alright on the hop front (though muted) with lemon and flowers, malt comes through in the flavour

asheft (2447) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Can. Pleasant hay and noble hops aroma in front of caramel malt and some apple juice. Crystal clear gold with only a white ring. Slightly unpleasant flavour of hops bitterness and some faint phenolics, finishing with mineral water. Light body, high carbonation, annoying finish. Somewhat crisp.

JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Pale golden straw pour with a thin white head. Fairly herbal hop nose. Light zesty lemon and a bit of spice. Has some peppery character and remains fairly dry. Not bad really.

Alpha10 (271) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
2014/04/19 -Pours a clear yellow-gold colour with a small, foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is mild floral hops, grass, apple and cereal. Taste is sweet cereal and apple up front, grass, corn and a floral hop aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with lively carbonation and a mildly bitter finish. OK ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2 finger head fades to one and laceing. Stays one finger head a wile. Looks like a watered down pilsner. Smells of apple, garbage, butter, and the saaz hop. Taste is a watery pilsner with a buttery, garbage taste and the saaz hop taste. Heavy bodied.
