COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
E.J.Phair Pilsner is a Czech style lager. It is very well balanced, golden colored beer, with a malty profile and abundant saaz hops in the finish. It is both refreshing and satifying on hot summer days or any other time a lighter, flavorful beer is desired.

12oz bottle part of ten pack sampler from world market.. very light golden color with a clean white head. aroma is musty and smells of yeast overtones.. very very corn taste with a pronounced malty presence.. the hops jump in towards the end of the sip with little consequence.. the carbination seems to tweak the beer away from its natural flavor and leave a synthetic pulse on the final aftertaste.. just okay.. just an okay pilsner

Light gold. Musty sweet aroma with a little florals. Dry and bready beer with a crisp hoppy finish.

bhensonb (11526) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Aroma of sweet malt and grassy hop. Hint of spice. Slightly hazy gold color with a white head that filmed immediately. Thin to medium bodied. Sweet fruit. Then a bready malt. The finish is a bit bland, but it is reasonbly bitter. Given the fruitiness, this is suggestive of an ale.

Bottle; nose of grain, sweet corn, and a little vanilla note; clear gold with a huge long lasting, glass lacing, white head; flabor has mild hop bitterness, a touch of corn syrup sweetness, and some caramel malltiness. Hoppy bitter finish! Very good Pils!

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - JAN 20, 2007
This one is widely available in most NorCal stores. I’d never really gotten a chance to try it until the tasting. Aroma is cream corn, sweet with not much hop profile. Appearance is clear, nice head, white and appealing. Flavor had a saazy, hoppy bite but not much else. Didn’t seem really refined. Not bad though.

Ratman197 (10216) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2006
Bottle poured a clear straw color with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, bread, light citrus and some light spice notes. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, light citrus and a hint of spice with a crisp clean slightly dry finish. One of the better pilsners I’ve had.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - JUN 1, 2006
tap. Pours more golden than your typical plilsener. Aromas of grain and malts. Flavors of malts but none of the mustiness thta a typical pilsner has. I would say in style it is more like an ale than a pilsener. Nonetheless this makes a good session beer.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear, light copper color with a white head. Malt aroma with a slight toasted notes. Toasted malt flavor. Clean and pleasant to drink. Grainy aftertaste.

bb (6860) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Draft. Golden beer with a big white head. Creamy mouthfeel. Noble hops and some malt in both the aroma and flavor. It goes down smooth (and creamy), but there’s a bit of a metallic taste to it.
