COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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)

On draught at five-0-three. Golden malty character balanced by a hoppy bitterness in the finish.

Hazy blonde, nice thick head, has a herbal, fruity, sweet, richly malty, only subtle herbal hops, just fat malt. More a helles, but a good one. Bit yeasty, too, so I guess more of an U Bier.

Bottle shared by Chris - thanks! Clear light golden pour with a small head. Grain and bready, with some drying hops. Rich in the aroma and taste. Very nice.

Dark orang. 1 finger white head. Harsh piney lemon juice nose. Huge mouthfeel. Creamy so great mouthfeel. Awesome astringent pine cone and lemony yeasty sort of coats the tongue and never leaves. Bursting with a ton of grassy and old lemon rind

AirForceHops (3118) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Draft at Beercraft. Lightly hazy gold, with no head in the mini snifter. Aro.a is damn spot on for the style! Saaz hops, grassy with pale grain and light lager yeast. Flavor is just light and refreshing with a ton of Sazz bitterness and a light pale grain balance. Damn fine for a Pils!

Amazingly clean, solid pils. Nose is lager yeasty, biscuity, striking hop scent. Tastes like a perfect pils with hoppy presence - resiny bitterness lingers at the end.

Pour is lightly hazed golden color with a tight white head. Nose has a gentle grain, some sweet biscuit malts, fairly assertive hop presence with a good bit of lemon, some herbal grassy notes, and a hint of citrus. Taste is a touch more sweet than the nose, grain is cleaner and malts are more forward. Hops are a bit more blanaced and more grassy and earthy. Sweet biscuit malts with assertive grain up front, honey maltiness mid palate with grassy herbal hops in the back. The lemon shrinks a bit, carbonation is moderate and finish is clean.

Bottle thanks to my summer secret santa. Bottled just 2 weeks ago. Aromas are fresh grain, lemon zest, hay, and flowers. Tastes are clean pilsner malt, spicy saaz hops, lemongrass, crackers, and light lemon peel. Light sweetness throughout with just a touch of bitterness in the finish. Probably the smoothest pilsner I’ve had. So simple but so good. This has been on my Want list since I joined the site. Glad I finally got to try it.

22oz Bottle, purchased at K&L Wine Merchants - Redwood City, CA. Peach sulfur, freshly milled grain, and hay aroma. Zinging presentation, with gritty mineral heavy texture and a railing, heavy front hop bite. Smooth on the throat, mostly fresh, and a little bit warming. This is elegant and graceful, as pilsner go, with no rough edges and a lot of keeping within the lines. The malt character is sharp, but not heavy and the hops are completely balanced with the pilsner malt intensity. I was super excited to have stumbled into this, thinking I’d never get at it. It’s fantastically good and a beer I wish I had weekly access to. The lingering hop crisp finish keeps me coming back.

At Broken Top Bottpe Shop with an early dinner with Tayer. Pours murky ornge gold. With foamy head that drops to lacing. Aroma is dry pilsner malt. Taste is flavorful fizzy grassy malt. Pils malt. Semi dry and nice.
