This is our take of the renowned Bohemian-style pale lager that you might find in Bavaria or the Czech Republic. Ours is a little more golden, rounder, and a little more malt driven than many other versions. The beer possesses strong hop character that is balanced by its rich, round, malty palate. Refreshing and balanced, this beer is a favorite of our winery friends during harvest. (1.014 BG, 5.0%, 38 IBU, 4 SRM)

A very fine pilsner. Thin persistent white head. Slight hop aroma. This reminds me of my own German Pils. Iím guessing Weihenstephan 34/70 yeast.

Bottle. Most prominent in the aroma and flavor was lemon rind. Flavor was slightly citrusy. Reminded me a lot of Firestone walkers pivo pils.

Pailhead (6026) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle: The aroma consists of light grass, straw, sweet cereal and grainy notes, and barely a hint of lemon grass. It pours a transparent gold with a little bit of orange tint to it. It has a two finger white head that settles to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with light sweet cereal and grain notes with just a hint of citrus. The finish has light grass, straw, and a hint of lemon peel. Overall, this is just super drinkable and sessionable. This would be a great beer to have readily available in the summer...really, it would be great to have available year round.

Homer321 (2982) - Melboring, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle thanks to joenugs. Nose is super soft and pillowy malt with a grassy hop presence. A moderate catty note to the hops reminding me of Victiry Prima Pils but less prominent. Hazy light golden color with a tight packed white head. Taste is moderately hop forward with a light fruity note to it. Light grainy flavors are wonderful but I really feel the hops detract from that just a touch. Iím torn between loving this with the classic German hops or wishing there was a softer czech hop profile. A very well made beer.

Would have liked to have tried this fresher, 3 months old. Still very Pils like with Saaz grassy hops and clean Pils malt. Moderate bitterness overlaps herbal notes. A tad corny however, still this seems to be a well made classic style.

Bottle. Yellow pour with a white head. What can I say. Itís a clean, refreshing, and tasty Pilsner. It has all the classic traits. Good body and mouthfeel.

Fatehunter (1829) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Pours a half finger of head on a hazy straw body. The aroma is bright honey and dry grains. Clean. The taste starts smooth sweet, then mild moving to moderate bitterness, finishes long dry bitter. Nice profile and balance. The texture is crisp and bubbly. Excellent.

gunnar (6919) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle from my Californian Secret Santa, thanks Mike. Pours clear golden with a huge frothy white head. Nice aroma of grassy hops and bready malts. Taste is mild sweet malty, bready and caramel, clean and very balanced, flowery and grassy hops with spicy notes. Soft delicious mouthfeel. Lingering weak spicy, a sessionable pilsner, on the sweeter side.
