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!!

Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured a clear pale color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Medium floral hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. This beer just met my expectations.

355ml twist off bottle. Clear gold pour, fizzy white head. Fairly bland aroma, floral hops and pears. Flavor is strangely fruity, like froot loops fruity, sweet lemon lime and citrus, its unoffensive but is not reminiscent of a pilsener.

DrSilverworm (8547) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2011
12oz bottle. clear yellow color, one-finger white fading head. First thing you notice is the carbonation, which over powers the aroma and taste giving this a sort of watered-down flavor. More lager-yesty aroma, faint hops taste.

BVery (7959) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle. Clear light yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Grain and pale malts, crisp but very light, and a touch of hop bite late. Meh.

Tap at Genesee Brewhouse. Pale golden color. Light noble hop nose, lemon. Sweet, fruity, lemon flavor. Decent enough.

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a stark white head. The aroma picked up dull bready notes and hay with not a lot more coming through. The flavor found light bready notes, wet grains, and honey at the core.. mild herbal bitterness around.. finished prickly with more residual sweetness than bitterness. Light-bodied with rolling carbonation on the palate.. drinkable, but there wasn’t a whole lot to get excited about.

Bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor haveppilsner malts, crackers, mild noble hops with some lemony citrus, ok, but I wouldn’t revisit this again.

9/15/13. 12oz bottle from Winn Dixie. Golden pour with a small off-white head. Plain aroma, light bread and a dash of citrus zest. Plain flavor, not offensive, lightly sweet breadiness with a hint of citrus zest and grass.

b3shine (6595) - Indiana, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle to half-pint. Looks solid; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells of pilsner malt, mild hops, and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not much of a pilsner snap, but not bad, and definitely exceeded my expectations.

Strykzone (5534) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2012
Sampled at an esbls. From Rob. Clear golden. Not much head to mention. Light skunk honey nose. Not offensive but too close to it. Mhoney flavor. Very soft sulphur hops and even softer fruit. A bitter after taste.
