Growler - Hay and grainy smell with a golden color. Dry taste. Slight spicy taste, pepper taste. Not much malt sweetness or hops flavor. The spice flavor adds a lot of flavor to this beer, giving it a stronger taste then the color lets onto.

Thisis12ptfont (909) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Aroma of graham crackers, metallic pilsner malt, very subtle hops and grains. Appears a translucent gold with no foam. Very bland taste bringing hints of caramel, golden malts, watery pilsner malts and bland hops. Overall, not much to say about this. It is what it is.

kramer (5228) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Tap, Seattle. Pours a crystal clear yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that vanished quickly. The nose is light Saaz hops with some bready pils malt. Not quite enough hops for a Czech Pils for my tastes. The flavor is lacking in brightness and clarity of the hops, it’s just lightly bitter. It’s more doughy and heavy than it is crisp and light. Light bodied, watery up front with a bit of doughy stickiness on the back end. Soft fizzy carbonation. OK beer, but pretty far from a good Czech Pils.

In pint glass at Cowboys Postseason game. Clear straw yellow. With almost no head. Aroma was nothing to boast about. Flavor was better than expected.

brokensail (12002) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 31, 2014
On tap @ Gordon Biersch San Jose. Clear orange pour with a white read. A rather bready and sugary nose, which is not quite what I was hoping for. A lot of apple, pear, and toasted grain. The flavor is kinda hoppy, I guess. Some decent enough grass notes. Mildly floral. A lot of bread and sweet cereal grains otherwise. Meh.

mkel07 (3875) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2014
On tap at Cheeseburger in Paradise 261214. Decent enough as far as pilsners go. Good strong colour and the flavour was pretty good as well. Good to see a Pilsner with a bit of body to it.

loubar (123) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 17, 2014
12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Nose of light malt and cereal. Grassy and hay-like taste on a malty base. Light floral hop bitterness comes in with a dry, slightly skunky finish. Just okay.
