2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draft, this brew is a craft pilsner that takes the standard Czech pils flavor profile of sweet pale malt and Saaz hoppiness and adds a little spiciness to the mix. Soft floral aroma that does not seem to match up with the bitter and spicy flavor. Something about the texture I found off-putting, although it may be just an old keg or something wrong with the tap at this particular venue. Finishes a bit dry, but clean at least. Perhaps even some alcohol notes in the finish, which seems out of place for a pilsner. Can't say I enjoyed this, but it's not bad.

Bottle. Clear. Light honey color. Floral Saaz hops aroma with hints of hay, dough, and vanilla. Taste is hoppy for a pilsner but not overly so. A little spicy, peppermint perhaps, medium bitter finish. Well balanced and drinkable.

Bottle, a little more chilled than cellar but not cold. Smells all kinds of wonderful, but deceptively so. I think I’m smelling a darker beer. Pours pale yellow with a thin head that dissipates quickly. A little carbonated for my taste, covering up what could be a complex taste, but mostly finishes bitter. It looks like a cheap beer, smells like a great beer, and the taste is somewhere in the middle

11/27/13. On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in downtown Asheville. Clear golden pour with a small off-white head. Light aroma, hints of spicy and grassy hops, some doughy malts. Malty flavor, doughy malts, pils malts, hints of spicy hops. Sweeter than expected. Not bad.

Just not a fan of pilsners. Tastes skunky and very similar to Heineken. Smells skunky as well. Pours a light yellow in color.
