This beer is clean and crisp little less hoppy then one would expect and the head was on the small size, the lacing was very weak good beer for a hot summer night.

It’s all right--but way too hoppy to make me happy. I give the brewery much credit for standing their ground in the face of the Anheuser Busch onslaught, but I find it too harsh and bitter to really enjoy.

Good bitterness with a nice bite. A light body, but it still feels as if you could sink your teeth into it. I didn’t think this was an amazing beer, but it was pretty good.

Clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma of grain and skunk. Flavor has notes of grass, grain, lemon, herbal qualities and floral hops. Pleasantly sweet, not much bitterness at all. Medium body with subtle carbonation. No lacing, ok head retention. Drinkable.

bottle-i ws very impressed by this fresh spicy pils. pours a lightl yellow with a small head. big saaz hop notes-crisp hay and lemon. This has it all-spicy hop notes, good malt base, grainy flavors and that lemongrass finish. This is best when fresh.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2009 Excellent beer, not quite as spicey as urquell but very quaffable. Another fine example of how our country (USA) can take something good from another country and bastardize it. And then have the gaul to sue the brewery for the rights to the name. Re-rate: Oh how I long for the days of the brown half liter bottle. Okay, the first culprit I look for, the green bottle stink, the fart in an empty room... Honestly, not so much. Saaz hops, leaning more towards an ocean breeze rather than spice and no discernable sulfur. Very round and polished body, no harsh grain or angular edges, very soft with a nice touch of hop spice to crisps things up. Excellent brew, although a properler handled bottle, ie. no light exposure, is essential. Don’t be afraid to ask them to open a sealed case for you. 88

I think this is the right one? Smooth enough, not much foam or lacing. Good enough, a fine start to a Saturday morning.

Clear amber body, aroma is a bit sulfury Pretty rich and smooth while going down. Not much of a finish.

Tapped. Yellow/golden colour, decent white foamy head. Bready/hoppy nose with hints of grassiness. Flavour is quite hoppy with huge peak after a few seconds, the finish is quite "vegetably". Bittersweet aftertaste and leaves the mouth a bit sticky.
