In bottle; I am not a big pilsner fan but this option wasn’t bad. Not as hoppy as many true Czech pilsners ... mild-medium bodied, easy drinking. Nothing special but an OK beer

sawbuck (302) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Mild aroma of bread and some spices....not that pungent. Clear golden yellow with ultra white head. Sweet bready malt followed qucikly by a spicy bitterness that is thin. Finishes almost dry with the same bitterness. Fairly plain but not bad for the price.

Standard Czech Pilsner. I never really care for these, and this is no different. It has a mild bite, but not enough to make it interesting. Never again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Light golden/yellow body with a white head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of toasted grain, herbal hops, minerals, straw. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Passable as a czech pils. Malts come off as somewhat raw, grainy.

Pours a clear gold with half finger head which quickly fades. light carbonation. Aroma is metallic with very light hints of caramel and nuts. Mild roasty nutty flavor with a slight hoppiness on the back. Honestly not much to write home about and better social beers are available

Karol (603) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 28, 2014
Tapped at Gordon Biersch at the San Francisco international airport. The beer came with almost no head in a weizen glass. Color is clear golden no head. Aroma is malty, a bit of corn malt, some sweet caramel. Taste is malty with a bitter finish typical for german pilsners or canned industrial pilsners. It is no pilsner czech style at all not even near it, it tasted like a german helles and a bad one, too.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours clear golden color with a billowy white head of foam. The head has a decent level of retention, fading to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – A lightly toasted malt and biscuit aroma mixed with a little bit of a caramel smell are the most pronounced. Along with these smells comes some other aromas of a light floral and grassy nature. Taste – The taste begins with a crisp lightly toasted malt flavor with a little bit of a corn and caramel. As the taste advances it bitters up some with flavors of a grassy and hay-like nature coming to the tongue. Along with these flavors, some other hop flavors of a floral and a bit of lemon citrus come at the very end, leaving a rather crisp and drier flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that slightly higher. For the mix of sweet malt and grassy flavors the feel is rather good as it maintains enough thickness to uphold the flavor all while the carbonation helps keep it more refreshing and crisp. Overall – A very easy drinking and nice crisp brew. This is one great brew for the summer months when sitting outside and enjoying the world.

Draft at Gordon Biersch Colombus in a 4 oz taster. Pours a clear yellow golden color with a large white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, grassy notes, leafy hops, crackers. Crisp and cold, but not much going on flavor wise.
