COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden Revolution heralds the arrival of a new Czech pilsner standard. This handcrafted, dry hopped imperial pilsner sends a powerful message to the pilsners that have come before. Echoing the words of one of the Velvet Revolution's heroes as he dismissed the communists, Golden Revolution proclaims: "Thank you, now go away".

Bottle from JV Wine & Spirits in Napa, CA. Pours golden orange with a smear of white head. Aroma of mild roast caramel with some light hop. Full bodied with frothy carbonation. Flavor is caramel with some mild spice. It’s more sweet than not. There’s a touch of heat. Strong and flavorful. Not your standard malt liquor.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Dirty straw, slight haze, minor white head, frothy, sparce lacing, mild carbonation.   Sweet straw nose, slight hint of some sort of cheese.   Very sweet grassiness on the tongue.   Almost cloying.   Malt forward beer, no real hop presense.   I guess its not expected if its a Pilsner.   Yeah, very sweet, a little corny and/or mealy.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Has a little bit of a syrupy character to it.   Pretty much comes across as an Imperial Pilsner.   Sweeter, with a bit of warming to it.   Tiz okay, but can be a bit hard to choke down a 750ml.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. The look is clear, golden color, and no head. The smell is hops, fruits, citrus, and caramel. The taste is hops, sweet, caramel, fruits.
