Tap at Virginia Beach location. Not suprisingly, this was pretty much like practically every other pilsners I’ve had. Crisp, grassy, and watery with a somewhat unpleasant finish. However, I thought this one was a better example of the style.

Here’s my qualifications: been to this chain in Tempe AZ--lots of times. I’ve tried all their beers, many times. It’s a lucky day when an in-house brewer even has a lager, since crappy ales are all the rage the last few yrs....All GB beers have a real stiff taste. None of their beers are gulpable or something you want to buy at a store. Too expensive. With the Czech lager, you get a medium body, some hops, plenty of corn, and whatever chain-brewer chemicals you can recognize from 33 cent macros. GB is one of the most overrated beermakers, this lager starts nice and moist, tasty, then disintegrates on the tongue. Finish varies, but often unpleasant. On the bright side their food is better than their beer--

This is a great beer as far as pilsners go. Lots of spice in the aroma and flavor. Very dry and crisp. Very nice body massages my tongue. Perfect for a hot afternoon. Well done.

Draft. Golden color and staying power to the white head. Light aromas of some hops and meadowey yeast. Pretty solid flavors typical of a real lager. Round and smooth with a nice weight and feel.

On Tap in Glendale AZ before the Fiesta Bowl 2007. Pours out a gold topped with a white head. Pretty good thats about it.

Braudog (5999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Draft at the Virginia Beach locale: Deep golden. Nice full consistency. Excellent "saazy" character with a full-bodied and exceptionally well-balanced build. Very, very goood pilsner.

On tap in DC. This was a very refreshing beer. Stiff white head over a golden beer with a light herbal/citrus nose. Clean, crisp lager with lemon and orange citrus and a subtle grass bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable.

Ungstrup (30267) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2006
[At the DC location] A light yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty with a hoppy note - though not very Saaz like. The flavor is sweet malty with a hoppy note - again my guess is that it is not Saaz. The end is dry.
