COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the style of the original pilsner beers of Bohemia in a tradition that dates back to 1842. We use pale malts and a generous amount of Bohemian Saaz Hops to produce a golden color, soft, nutty malt flavor and floral hop bouquet.

mansquito (3513) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2014
At brewpub: Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma is grains, grass, and some flowers. Taste is quite crisp. Nice Czech style hoppiness without trying to get it to be all too American. Very fresh tasting, so you get a one up on most of the imports. Good overall.

On draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear yellow color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of lemon, yeast, and grain. Taste of lemons, zest, yeast, corn, and grain.

cazort (549) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. An enjoyable beer to drink with Dock Street’s excellent pizza. Like most American microbreweries’ attempts at a Bohemian Pilsner, though, I thought this fell short of my expectations and was not fully true to the style. Bold hop presence but the hops’ character strikes me more like a poorly-executed IPA than a Pilsner. Light color, but the beer is too heavy upon drinking. Aroma is fresh, but flavor and sensations on the palate are too heavy. A complete absence of grassy tones, which I always notice in Czech beers. A good beer, but a bit of a let down when I compare to what I expect from this style. I still have yet to have a Pilsner brewed by an American brewery that really strikes me as true to the style.

TheEpeeist (3384) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2013
On tap at Dock Street. Clear olive yellow with a white head. Nose is apple, grass and grain. Crisp and clean medium light with a dry finish. Taste is apple juice, lemon zest, grass and paper. Solid pilsner with perfumy hints.

callmemickey (2971) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Relatively clear golden body. Thin white head, soapy lacing. Nose is gentle with citric and grassy Euro hops. Taste is similar but shows increased grainy presence, more hop spice as well. Light bodied, assertive carbonation, a little thin in parts, but a clean refreshing finish. Good effort, but doesn’t live up to the other pilseners available fresh in Philly, especially Victory’s Prima and Braumeister series pilseners.

dnstone (2158) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Fairly fruity pils arom. Pale gold with a thin white head. Decently hoppy and dry...a nice pils.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2011
Hazy gold, huge citrussy juicy noble hop aroma. Sweet malty taste - as a Czech Pilsener should have - fairly bitter, honeyish malt, big Saaz hops in the finish with a near-perfect malt and bitterness balance. This actually does taste like a quality Czech brew and full marks for the effort; stunningly drinkable and true to style.

DocLock (8016) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Draft at CAH 4Q 10. Pours hazy canary with 1-finger white head. Nose is pale malt, floral, spicy, hoppy. Tastes rich, smooth, not super tart, but with a nice mix of spice, florals, hops, and mild chardonnay notes.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - OCT 19, 2010
Golden with a white head. Aroma was pretty hoppy for a pils- floral, grassy, light biscuit malts, too. Flavor was along the same lines. Nice bitter floral notes, herbal/grassy hops, biscuit malt. Finish has a nice bitterness on it. A pretty solid brew and easily sessionable.
