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.

Pours light amber with a large head that remains. Aroma is slightly spicey hops with a bit of bready malt and some light fruit. Flavor is much the same as the aroma. The slight fruitiness is a bit different for a pils but is nice. Light, crisp, but still tasty.

Bottled (6.1%). Clear golden, small firm head. Grassy nose. dry with dense, powerful, rounded mouthfeel. Lots of grassy hops. An oversized pilsener packed with flavour. One of the better American pilseners.

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!

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2009 To start with, I am not a pilsner fan, but it was hot, and Pete’s Brass Rail didn’t have too much that sounded good to me at the time, so I got a sample of this and a few others. I ordered a pint of this one after tasting it. Pours typical Pilsner pale gold with tight bubbles creating the same type of head. The nose was a bit toasty and biscuity, as was the smooth, clean flavor. Highly drinkable and deserving of a higher score.

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.

Orange gold color. Small head. Aroma is malty and sweet. A medium bodied pilsner. Malts are nutty, fruity and fairly sweet. Hops are spicy and slightly bitter. Not a bad pilsner, it has some flavor and bite to it. Nicely balanced. Light and refreshing. A touch sweet and perhaps a touch watery, but a nice beer nonetheless. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

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.

~Pours a very light yellow colour, almost white when held to light, many bubbles and huge white fluffy head. Head is too large! ~Scent of sour wheat, very tart. Lemony ~Can taste light hops and citrus. ~Light and dry. Citrusy aftertaste. ~This is an enjoyable beer. Great when hot out. Its 100 degrees out right now. The scent is a little candy like and taste is a bit tart, but its pretty good.

Pours a dark golden color with a hint of amber. Aroma is grainy and a little bit sweet. Full bodied. A little grainy and malty. Finish a little hint of sweetness. Mellow hoppiness. Pretty tasty. My bottle was %6.1 abv.
