Brewed with Malt and Hops to the style of a Bohemian Pilsner with our own Rogue Hop to give it an exciting strong yet lingering hop finish. A great one for a mouth feel challenge!

I can still taste the hips after 15 minutes of finishing. Itís an approachable beer. Itís fresh. I canít fault it apart from it being a bit thin and lacking in roundness that the Germans achieve.

Had it from a bottle. Very easy drinkability. Light color. More enjoyable when drinking it cold. Nice lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aromaty i smak chmielu od razu uderzają w kubli smakowe. Bardzo wyrazisty i gorzkawy pilzner, zdecydowanie inny od tych spotykanych w Europie.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Some leafy and grassy notes, low sweetness, mild bitterness, and a bit of a grassy finish. Decent.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2015 Light, drinkable beer. Decently large frothy head. No strong taste of hops or anything really. Few citrus like hints. Tastes cheap and watery when it gets warm

And now my 6 pack of assorted Harringtonís beer is empty. Definitely to be avoided, although generally no worse than Heineken or Macs Gold or other lawnmower beers. Little aroma and a very underwhelming taste. The aroma was quite nice, but I just canít remember what it was. I can just imagine the arguments at the Harrington brewery. The brewer wanted to create something strong, but the accountant wouldnít let him add enough hops. The marketer decided to oversell the rather plain result and the beer drinker is left ruing his purchase

There isnít a hop harsh bite that you might be thinking youíd be getting with this style. The bold hop aroma does not translate well into hop taste on the palate, but the overall flavour is very even and makes this a very drinkable beer of the style. Iíd like more of that rough bite thing, but then I would. At the end of the glass though nothing really stand out memorable, itís just another lager beer.

Unlike some other posters, I got a big 3 finger head, although it was frothy and didnít stick around. The appearance and aroma are very clean, light malt dominates. Taste is light, mouthfeel thin. The flavours ARE there, they just lack cojones. One for the ladies. No offense.

Finally tried this after a handful of enthusiastic recommendation. To be honest Iím disappointed. Itís a pretty boring pilsner, similar to Boundary Road or Macís offerings but more expensive. A little bit fruity, a little bit malty, some grass, too much carbonation and too light palate. Much prefer Pilsner Urquell which can be found cheaper.

A pretty clean pilsner with light citrus and tropical notes. Quite light on the palate.
