COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is patterned after the great Czech Pilsner. This beer uses hops imported from the Czech Republic the only difference being that it’s brewed with ale yeast which makes it a little more complex in flavor. It is a light, straw colored, and very refreshing.

argo0 (11351) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Clear yellow body with white head, good lacing. Aroma is mildly grassy. Taste is medium body, decently hoppy grassy. Not your father's golden beer (and that's a good thing).

Dark yellow with Bud-like head. Light caramel-malt nose and sweet malt flavorings.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 17, 2005
This beer has a nice creamy, pale colored head. The beer itself is a full gold color and is quite clear. The aroma is fruity with notes of apricot and peaches. This beer is quite smooth and creamy on the palate up front. There is a light bitterness in the finish, which definitely matches the dominant hoppy fruit notes quite well. I get notes of apricots, and sweet citrus fruits like grapefruit. This is nice and light on the palate and it goes down so fast, and I still want there to be more in my glass. This is so nice, refreshingly hoppy and light, perfect as a summer quaffer.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear golden color with thin white head. Sprucy noble hop aroma with a hint of cereal grains. Grains dominate the flavor with a touch of sweetness. The finish is somewhat bitter. Nice beer.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 17, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2005 Complex is right. No aroma to speak of except a little bitter. Gold color to it. Had a bland flavor to it may have to go back and have one more to get a better sense of this beer
Tap. Had a full glass this time rather than sampler glass. Aroma something was there but hard to explain maybe some fresh sent of hand soap. Staw body with white head. Flavor had a mild bitterness to it like most swill. But if this was served in cans like Miller or Bud maybe more people would drink it.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Summery lager nose - floralish hops, toasted malt. Hoppier than the nose suggests, earthy bready malt, tingly bready finish.

Golden yellow with small head and lacing. Light hops and citrus aroma. This is a is very good, easy drinking beerwith a crisp light hops and citrus flavor.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2006
On draught at Tempe brewpub: Clear golden yellow with a thin white head that does hav nice retention. The aroma is spicy, earthy, and floral hops (but not very assertive), light fruits, along with a hint of dusty malt. The taste is very crisp, clean, and yet round, creamy and full. The carbonation is moderate, yet sprizty and lively on the tongue, while the body is light. Flavors of spicy/grassy/floral hops come through, but by no means are anything like an IPa, along with sweet fruit, light earthy bread, and doughy malts. Very approachable for the average drinker, and not the imperial/harvest/double barrel-aged type that’s going to get talked up on ratebeer, but a very solidly brewed beer all around.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Light golden color. Aroma is nicely balanced with the malt and hops, faint earth tones. Medium bodied, not complex though but smooth with a little bite. A good summer starter beer.
