2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
A pretty basic pilsner. Nothing special about the aroma or taste but a solid drink for $2.50.

Golden, with a long-lasting head. Green apple, sweet, grainy/light toast aroma and flavor. Also some herbal and floral flavors, and moderate bitterness--which is "sharp", but nice--and balances with the malt flavors pretty well.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft sample @Syracuse location. Typical color, nose is light Saaz hop and corn. Flavor is about right for the style. Saaz hops, hay, corn and grain backbone. Flavor is clean and crisp. Ok.

From tap. Golden in color with decent head. Aroma was all crisp bready malt. Taste follows with a refreshing clean hop bite and refreshing finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Airport draft. Pours a clear gold with a modest, barely-there white head. Nose is grassy and floral hops and the taste adds bitterness. Straightforward, crisp, and refreshing. A great beer for 4pm.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap during Ohio Brew Week 2013, taster from Red Brick. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Couple splotches of lace. Lighter body. Good, smooth more soft carbonation. Lighter, more dry finish. Nice bready, lightly creamy flavor. Some hay, light grassy, peppery hop. Nice light to moderate bitter taste. Great czech pils. Awesome example of the style.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at GB near DC Metro Centre. Not much to say here. Pours golden with some head and lacing. Light grassy, very limited pilsner bite in the finish. Meh.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught. This is a pretty boring pils. It does not have the spicyness I expect from a CP.

Just an average pilsner. Little hoppy with a slight malt flavo. Would not get again.

A very respectable pilsner. Not as good as their Blonde Bock or Maibock, but most sampler packs have at least one dog, but the GB sampler does not. So if this and the Marzen are the weakest in their sampler, then their sampler is one of the great bargains around.
