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!!

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.

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.

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.

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

cfrancis (2498) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2012
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.

Pours a crystal clear straw color. Smell is faint but pleasant with grass and floral notes. The taste is consistent with the style but a but weak. like the smell, there is a grass and floral with a crisp hop bite. Finishes clean. Nothing stellar about it, but it’s a nice summer brew.

Bottle from sampler. Fresh smell but lacks in taste. Kinda like a butterface. Great in fresh hop taste but average overall by lack of fullness and mouthfeel. ---Rated via my mouth

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 Bottle from the summer variety pack. Poured into pilsner glass, bright straw color with decent white head. Aroma is very malty with some lemongrass hops. Taste brought more honey sweetness, medium body and fizzy. Not bad, refreshing.
