COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Legend has it in 1840, a monk smuggled lager yeast into Bohemia, setting the stage for the first pilsner; even now the tradation continues. We brew this pilsner with the noblest of saaz and to this we add premium German pilsner malt. This rich crisp taste has a finish so smooth that it deserves an encore, PROST!!

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 30, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a extremely large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated transparent weak yellow colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and musty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The thin flavor contained notes of hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2012
12 oz bottle from Dundee Variety Pack served in a pint glass. Light golden-amber with plenty of visible carbonation. Crisp and lively feel with a solid medium body. Good malt/hops balance for style. O: a solid, if uninspired pilsner.

kramer (4857) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear light gold body with a one finger fizzy white head. A nice amount of clingy lacing remained. The nose is pretty subtle, just a very light bready maltiness with some very light hop notes. The flavor is on the bland side. Nicely crisp and a bit snappy on the finish, but the malt is a little too watered down and the hops too few to make an impact. Light bodied and watery in texture with fizzy prickly carbonation. This wasn’t really bad or flawed in any way, it’s just incredibly boring and lacking in character.

This beer was interesting. Ithad virtually no flavor. Nothing. Not unpleasant, but not particularly pleasing either. Had a clean dry finish with a completely entry palate.

Onslow (1130) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Lighter shade of pale, white head, crystal clear. LIght aroma of floral hops and vegetal funk. Taste is pretty much like a generic lager - a little fruit in the body and a little bite of dry hops in the finish, but not a lot of character. Very drinkable, though.

erickok (3414) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 12, 2012
Golden fizzy body and typical white head. Fairly fruity for a pilsner. Moderate pils yeast and some cereals. Light bitter, medium to low fiz. Aftertaste is a bit dry, which gives it some character. A fine pilsner. (12oz bottle on Florida trip)

Light gold yellow clear very slight haze.Frothy head good lacing. Aroma is a sweet pilsner,slight citrus maybe orange/emon like.Lager mineral notes. Some neutral breadiness. Slight peppery spice.Mild but pleasant. Same taste as aroma,nice medium possibly fullish body.Pretty nice really has a spicey somewhat citrusy finish. Pretty solid tastey,medium sweet pilsner.Somewhat grassy with citrus finish.Its a nice pilsner. This is a good beer. Im a sucker for saaz and some good german malt maybe.

MarkSachon (551) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2012
12 oz bottle from the sampler case. The worst of the four in the pack and a big disappointment. A sour and bitter taste prevails with very little else to recommend.

Didn't dig this one. Hops tasted like they were grown in someone's closet then mixed with rotten vegetables. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a light gold with a nice medium white top. Aroma is a nice light bouquet of german malts with a light honey. Taste is easy drinking malt driven pils. Nothing special but nothing that will turn you off.
