Herbal hop aroma. Crystal clear light gold color with fine bubble. Little lacing, no head. Taste is dominated by saaz hops followed by bitterness. A crisp, clean, well done czech pilsner. Would drink again.

Pretty down the middle Pilsener. It had a very American craft feel to it as it was a little heavier than a German and American swill.

This is a good American pilsner, not an easy thing to find. The aroma is a little faint but the appearance of the beer is beautiful. The taste is light. The balance of this beer is excellent and the finish is delightful. I am reasonably impressed with this beer.

pinkie (457) - New York, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Pours a nice yellow with good clarity and a fat head of foam. leaves good lace. Nose is herbal. Grassy and a light grainy sweetness with a bit of husk behind it. A bit like lemongrass with a nice lightness on the nose. The taste is lovely. Bitter herbs, pungent grass and a light lemony flavor. There is some appleskin to lend a touch of sweetness in addition to the natural grainy sweetness. Dry, crisp body with a bit of hops to bring themselves forward with a touch of bitter in the finish. Nice!

This is a really good American pilsner, not an easy thing to find. The aroma is a little faint but the appearance of the beer is beautiful, really pale with a good white cap of head. The taste is not as grainy as the best of the Austrian and Czech pils but it is appropriately light bodied and the hop note is strong and spicy as it should be. The balance of this beer is excellent and the finish is delightful. I am impressed with this brew.

Homer321 (1764) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Draft. Nose is soft malty white bread with some catty hops. Pour is a very clear light yellow with a medium sized white head that laces down the glass. Taste is a wonderful light soft bread pillowy backbone with a firm but forgiving hop bitterness. Hop flavor is a floral and spicy combo. Finishes semi sweet. Overall a very nice Czech pils I could drink lots of. Very clean.
