Bottled@The Chriso Gaylord Tasting. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is quite dry pilsish (a.k.a. bready malts, some grassy and hayish notes along with some slight saltwatery notes). Flavour being much the same.

A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris O’s Night of the Gaylords.
Clean gold with a thin white head. Nice and fruity plus some decent sherbet hoppage. A little hint of card but not enough to spoil it. Straight forward and drinkable. A pleasant pils.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Bottle I picked up at Julio’s back in October. Never got around to rating the BB stuff figuring it was local enough that I’d get to it all eventually. Then they went out of business, so only managed to get a couple of what was left out there. Pours a slightly hazy treacle hued amber with a medium sized white head. Loads of citrus and grain. A bit thicker and sweeter than I’d think for a pilsner, with a bit more grain. Really grainy and bitter on the finish. Papery. Seems like it might have been a really good lawnmower beer at one point, possibly nice and crisp, but time has probably killed that.

thornecb (4310) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Pours deep gold into a shaker. White head pancakes and recedes leaving spider lacing. Sweet caramel malt and saaz hop aromas. Crisp with upfront caramel turning astringent in the lasting metallic and pepper hop finish.

auerbrau (3153) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 12, 2009
12oz Bottle - Downtown Liquors, Somerville, MA. Very subtle and light, herbally-influenced mineral nose. Pours a brilliant, shining clear pale gold, with a tall frothy mauve with good lace. Flavor is distinctly herbal and kind of flaccid. A bit wet and sticky. I’m digging here, but just not finding much to get excited about. Hop bitterness is tentative, metallic, tinny, and thin. It definitely has a characteristic Bohemian Pils ring, but it’s lacking good malt character and nice fresh hoppy snap. I suspect this bottle may be a bit older, unfortunately. However, it’s one of the last. I get the feeling I will miss Buzzard’s Bay, even though I don’t full appreciate that right now.
