COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tradition. Homage. Revolution.

When we brewed this beer, we shed blood, sweat and almost tears (we were somewhat the worse for wear after hosting a beer dinner at Musa the night before).

We wanted to showcase the awesome backbone of the Czech brewing tradition, the noble Saaz hop, and also tip our hats to the modern beers that rock our world, and the people who make them.

This is that beer, an imperious pilsner, 50kg of Saaz hops, 1400 kg of malt, 5000L of wort, 3 beer writers and 1 brilliant head brewer.

McNeillR (1221) - SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2014
Cloudy golden, visible enough carbonation, light. Soft windswept hops. Initial taste is a true Bohemian hop abuse, quite an odd and surprisingly sttill punchy use of Saaz. Sweet cutting malt. Hopped up but no real quench for something supposedly lagered? Soft peachy orange, dubious bitterness before it brick walls on the finish. Held up surprisingly well but this isnae a pilsner.

Leighton (11030) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle shared at Beer Temple - Amsterdam. Pours moderately cloudy orange-gold with a good, frothy white head. Light toasty-bready malt nose with fine cereal notes. Medium sweet flavor with light floral hops, toasty bread, very light pine and grass. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Fairly sweet to finish with some actually pleasant, lightly toasted grass bitterness. Some lingering toasted bread. Pretty OK overall.

Beer4000 (4476) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 9, 2013
330 ml bottle. Slightly foggy orange body with a fast disappearing white head. Nice aroma of oranges, marmalade, ripe fruit and sweet pale malt. Flavor is sweet malty, quite bitter and citric fruit. A fine body with a nice and bitter aftertaste. Nothing really here that reminds me of a lager/pils but a nice beer anyway. [short review due to it coming from my backlog] ;-)

markas101 (1844) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2013
33 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK via the Brewdog online shop. Slightly hazy gold, thin head. Sweet aroma, some bright hops and caramel. Somewhat sweet flavour, then an earthy somewhat skunkiness. Finish is long and bitter.

ej (720) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2012
Golden and clear with a small white head. Not much aroma, some hints of maize and malts. Taste is relatively bitter with hints of caramel and grains. Hints of alcohol..

jackl (4608) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle @ Beer Temple. Lager whale! The pour’s deep amber, slightly hazy. Massive orange-white head. The nose is toasted grains, some orange peel, grass and honey. The taste is more toasted grain, sweet syrup, honeyed brown bread. Mildly syrupy body. Easy drinking. Overall, decent. Sweet.

Gr0ve (2134) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2012
Draught. Crystal clear golden. Bold malty nose. Lots of light caramel. Unfortunately a little too sweet and not particularly well balanced. Could have use a lot more hops. Not a favourite.

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle, from a trade with Papsoe. An almost clear one, golden in color and topped by a small, dense, off-white head leaving lacings. Lots of orange on the nose, rather fruity all over actually, with some malty sugary scents as well. The flavor has pale malts in the back, it’s quite sweet, but with enough fruityness, pinecones and bitterness to balance it. Medium to full body, dryish on the palate. Don’t really know what it was, but I was sort of surprised by this one. It’s not a fantastic beer in any way, but it’s quite tasteful, and drinks easy. 120203

Sizzler80 (459) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 18, 2012
Dark amber pour with a good white head and lacing. Bursting with aromas of hops, orange, pine, grapefruit, caramel. Alcohol warmth is prevelent. Mostly bitter on the palate, slightly sweet from fruit with a hint of caramel. The taste profile is more subdued. Good Pilsner from BrewDog, nothing more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
