COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Signature Series
Rooted in the Czech Republic
You’re on a quaint cobbled street in Prague. Tiny motorcycles scoot by as you sit under an umbrella on a terrace in the midday sun. This is the beer you quaff as you figure out how you got to eastern Europe and how any drink can be quite this refreshing.

Little Known Fact
SAAZ’s European "Noble Hops" are so fragrant that brewing is not the only business for which they are in high demand. The perfume industry extracts their oil for its robust earthy, woody and herbal character.

Pours clear gold with a small fast fading white head. Grain, grass and sweet honey aroma. Taste is sweet malt, biscuit and hay with a slight bitter finish. Medium body and medium carbination. A good clean beer.

Clear body with almost no head. Yellow in colour. Aroma of grass and sugar. Taste matches with a hint of a mettallic taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bunget (801) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2016
Can. Clear golden body, small white head with poor retention. Surprisingly pleasant aroma of grains, light herbs, caramel and pears. Taste of grains, pear candies, herbs, a bit mineral of a mineral aftertaste. Not bad.

I thought it said "Big Rig." Damn. Another too-sweet pilsner. There are far better examples out there.

[7415-20150728] Tap. Light grainy biscuit grass aroma. Clear, bright yellow body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Sweet grainy straw and biscuit grassy cookie dough flavour. Light-medium body. Good, and I think I’m finally starting to come to an understanding with Saaz. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

Canmoore (401) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2015
Pours clear with a light head. Aroma is floral, with crackery malts, and some pepper notes. Taste is sweet, malty, floral, and a nice bitterness to the finish. Not a bad pilz, decent summer beer.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4350) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2015
On tap at GKBF. Grainy sweet nose with a dash of honey.  Soft round carbonation. The taste is crackery biscuit & honey sweetness. Surprising good.

473 ml bottle from the beer store. Terrible spoiled beer. The can exploded all over my kitchen. Big qc issues here.

Bendrixian (1476) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2015
Pours clear with a golden colour with white head. Aroma is filled with floral hops, sweet hay, cereal and a touch of earthyness. Sweet finish, cereal and hay are dominant flavour and has very little in terms of hops. not a good example of this style.

Daefido (9) - Welland, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2015 does not count
Well, nice colour and easy drink. but that’s all. not exact flavour I expected. top head disappeared too soon. Top note is a little bit bitter and gone it to flatness. needs more pilsner scent and characteristics!!!
