COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This hand-crafted pilsner is brewed with the finest lager malts to yield a beer that’s golden in color and medium in body. A delicate blend of Czechoslovakian Saaz and Tettanger hops is used to produce a truly smooth, well-balanced beer with a clean, crisp finish. Our specialty brewer’s yeast contributes to its light and frothy head.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2012
Pre-volcanic bath pint (NOT recommended) at the bar of the Calistoga Inn, 14/08/12. Brassy, conditioned gold topped with white. Sappy, herbal, mown grass aroma. Bready, shrubby and nuanced with a lipsmacking drying bitterness accompanied by a shave of pith and orange. Fizzy but it suits. Curd on crackers. VERY pilsener-ish. "Awesome!"

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 Draft at the brewpub. Pale gold color with a slight white head. Light grassy aroma. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Flavor is pale malt and grassy hop. Finishes a bit grainy, but the hop is very nice. It laced a tad.

Tap at the brewpub. The body was bright gold with a slight haze and a thick head. The aroma was soapy with some flowers and potato. The taste was sweet potatoes with some light hints of apple core. Drinkable but with a vegetable finish.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 9, 2006
Very clean pilsner- to both the nose and the tongue. Fuller bodied than most that I’ve tried, smooth on the tongue. Enough malty flavor that I would order it again.
