Taster on tap at Barley’s during RBWG. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves respectable lace. Medium plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Lightly soft. Good bready malt, light peppery flavor. Moderate bitter, minimal sweet. Tasty, bready, full-bodied pils.

Keg @ B Dubs. Deep gold with a tight white head. Pale malt, golden apple, grassy summer meadow on the nose. Nice personality. Super crisp apples and grassy hops. Slightly peppery. Lively hop accents. Mellow bread. Light body, active carbonation. Overall, super refreshing. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Deep golden hue, nice initial head, and brilliantly bubbly. Sweet starchy aroma. Drinks with a firm corn-malt base and adds in a spank of Bohemian hops that dominate the finish. Not as snappy as the best of this breed, but definitely drinkable. (#5427, 2/6/2014)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from Whole Foods The pilsner poured a clear golden color with a small off white head that quickly dissipated. There was no lacing. The aroma was a grainy and grassy mixture. The aroma was fruity with apricots and malt. The taste was more complex with sweet fruit and grapefruit. The medium body pilsner had soft carbonation. A nice every day beer but it does not excite the senses. The finish had some acidity but no bitterness.

Not a favorite of mine, but Im a bit biased because i’m crazy for a good pilsner. All in all a great try for an american attempt at a czech style lager.

12oz bottle in a sampler glass. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, floral hops, and light dough. Flavor the same. Average to light texture. Not bad but not the best style.

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.
