On tap @ Copper Kettle. Mostly clear golden yellow pour with a white head. Lemon cleaner aroma. Sour apples, water, cracker, and paper. Meh. Flavor is grainy, lemony, and tart. Apple, solvent, and paper. Kind of watery flavor and mouthfeel. Dry cracker notes, too. Meh.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
18 oz pilsner glass at the brewery. I thought this was a very impressive pilsner and I share threefourth’s opinion after looking at the low scores. Right from a few sniffs I got crisp, grassy, pungently dry hops with a clean, cracker background. The palate is spritzy and medium bodied with purposeful hop character. Plenty of dry, clean wooden and grassy bite with an immaculate malt flavor bringing dough and crackers to mind. I would put this easily in my top 5 pilsners. Glad to have the source close by.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Copper Kettle. Light yellow color, looks good. Smell is a little bit of mineral and earth and I think hops? Flavor definitely has a mild hint of hops and is very refreshing. Overall I enjoyed this beer quite a bit and would order it again any time I see it on tap at Copper Kettle.
Serving type: on-tap

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear yellow/slightly orange with white head, aroma brought notes of spicy and floral hops, some sweet biscuit, cracker and bready notes, touch of earthy, grain, and nice grassy notes. Taste is nice spicy hops, some floral and grassy notes go into sweet honey and biscuit, bready grains, some slight earth and bitter grain, finishing fairly dry and clean. Pretty nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
draft. tight, snappy and rigid texture; exceptionally well balanced by all measures: medium-low sweetness, medium-high bitterness, medium acid. light dough and baked cracker pilsner malt is presented without either coarseness or syrupiness. light to medium hop rate and light body are well-match, and the malt is full-flavored. mild fruit esters dance with doughy yeast and clean, moderately sweet honey cracker malt. as it warms there’s a mild grain and green sprouted garlic character but it’s very soft and subdued and doesn’t spoil the splendor. vibrant and clean pilsner malt with perfectly matched hop-rate, good carbonation release, a little bit of snaz and spritz and life in there. very well made and ranking up there with the best American renditions of Czech Pilsner. for those who have tasted the true beauty of czech lager and have a good appreciation for the nuance and subtlety of pils, as well as a love for just how good clean and vibrant pilsner malt can be, this is sure to please. meaning this should get a good amount of high-2’s and low-3’s from the American beer drinkers raised to think of anything pale as simple and poorly made.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ brewery. Hazy, a touch orangish yellow appearance with a white head. Bready pale malty, very light hoppy, herbal aroma. Easy drinking flavor but a little boring- sweet pale malty, lightly fruity, mild grassy/floral hoppy flavor. The hops don’t seem very assertive for a Bohemian Pilsner.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light gold with a thin frothy head that leaves much lace. Grainy aroma of cereal and wheat, with a very light grassy hop note. Flavor is nice and clean, though not too light. There’s this earthy pale grain tone with a background of yeasty biscuit, with a gentle noble hop presence throughout. Clean, flavorful and balanced. As good as Mama’s from Oskar Blues!
