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!!

Capa (2029) - Manama, BAHRAIN - SEP 19, 2011
Golden with a nice white head. A decent helping of grassy hops over a bit of grain and a touch of sweetness. Finish has a light but noticeable bite to it. Surprisingly clean. Not too shabby.

Crushed with TheRon. Pours golden with basically no head. Nice hoppy bite on the nose. Bitter, malt and grassy in the flavor. Good balance. Pretty nice.

Very pale yellow/straw color with a foamy head. Floral leathery aroma. Crisp finish without much flavor. Maybe a hint of maltiness.

translucent gold with a thin white head; medium-thin body with high carbonation.

aroma: biscuity pale malt, piney citrusy hops.

taste: piney citrus hops, pretzely malt, orange blossom honey, and minerality. even has a hint of belgian wit orange peel.

in a blind tasting, i’d call this an american pale ale.

Pour is a bright gold with a large white head. Aroma is almost nothing maybe some grassy hops in there. Flavor is suprisingly better with a decent dry pils malt and again some saaz hop toward the end. Not going to be a world beater but this was a decent pils.

Ron (2527) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2011
JB traded with me at the Islands this year so that I could sample this. Very light golden pour with almost no white head. Light hop aroma. Light body, crisp slightly citrus hop flavor with some sweet biscuit malt finish. OK, but nothing special.

Clear yellow with a white head. Grassy hop aroma. Taste is pretty dry with lemony-medicinal hops.

puboflyons (2143) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 23, 2011
From bottle no. 09510-8:55 4W. The pour is pale yellow with a thin to zero head so it is pretty average. The label reads hazy and hoppy and it does not live up to the "hazy" part. The aroma is grainy, slightly malty, with a slight hoppy nose. The body is creamy and thin to medium. The taste is moderately off-bitter. On a hot day the bitterness was too punchy but overall it is adequate.

Headbanger (3303) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2011
12oz bottle 7/17/11 (Binny’s Plainfield Singles Rack)-44° in Flute-Pours a clear golden with a big white head. Aroma of malt, hops, and grass. Taste of the same with some more grains coming through. This light bodied brew is not bad but just another Dundee brew.
