A simple yet satisfying pilsner with some malt flavor and medium hop character. The distinctive characteristic is the flowery, medium hop bouquet and flavor from Czech "noble" hops. It also has a dry finish from a more thorough fermentation and additional cold lagering. Light gold to medium gold in color. A nice crisp, smooth finishing lager with no fruitiness or esters.

Grassy hops and a touch of floral. The grainess really jumps out. Light refreshing excellent bitterness.  Hell yeah, this is what I want to drink when it is 38 degrees , 99% humidity in early July.  Great summer beer. Dry grassy finish - probably gets a couple extra points for matching the weather so well.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Clear gold, small head, great lacing. Appearance and palate more like a hand pump than a keg beer. Hoppy nose, light malts; flavor matches. Not as hoppy as I expected from the description. This batch was lower alcohol than usual and lower than menu description; appearance was slightly different from that of the other raters as well. Mine was not hopped to the point where I would have confused it with anything but a pils.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2010
Light yellow colored with hazy appearance, little white head. Yeasty and lemony-hopped aroma with some sweet malty note. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is more hopped with biting grassy note, some safty lemony tone also. Aftertaste dries with some burnt tone, good pilsner.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Draft @ brewpub. Hazy orange with stable white head and ring lacing. Bright citrusy aroma. Silky palate is slightly thin with high bitterness, in a good way, with tons of citrus peel. Juicy. Lots of grapefruit and minerally earth. Tastes like an IPA. Highly sessionable hoppy pils!
