3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz can bought from "Lifesource" in Salem. $2.99
Typical pale yellow lager body with a nice sized,frothy white head.
Pleasing lagerish aroma..sweet malts and grassy,slightly spicy hop nose.
Taste is very well balanced with nothing dominated..but the sweet toffeeish malts blend well with the grassy hop.
Nice on the palate, quite honeyish actually.
Overall a very well made lager..i hesitate to call it a Bohemian Pilsner however!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at the brewery during Zwickelmania 2013. Served by the owner, Christian. Very nice fresh grassy aroma. Clear bright yellow. Sweet, grassy initial / little hop bites in mid, with some cereal and caramel / a bit of cloying sweetness in the finish. Good legs on the final bitterness. Great mouthfeel. A very good, fresh-tasting pils. Satisfying stuff.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz can. This one reads 5.1% ABV. Pours cloudy yellow (looks like a kellerbier) with a large white soapy head with good retention; leaves some sheeting lacework. Aroma is corny, grainy, floral. Taste starts out lightly sweet before a crushing bitterness sets in. Definitely the most bitter pils I’ve had. There’s also an unwelcome flavor of wet dog in there. Highly carbonated, medium-full body. Crisp and refreshing, but a little flawed.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Hopworks. Aroma of grassy hops, a lovely complex bready graininess, slight dry, champagne-like fruitiness. Flavor has a juicy fruitiness with increasing grain complexity and a heap of bitterness from the hops. An in-your-face, but at the same time subtle and complex pils.

Nice sessionable brew from a great brewery. Sweet and mild grainy malts with some light grassy but citrus hop flavours. great balance and a crisp and clean finish. Good beer!

yellow with a nice sized white head. Dough and cereal grains are heavy in this one. Some grassy hops and a bit of vanilla. Clean, mildly bitter finish. Very well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I had this on tap while dining at HUB in Portland, OR. This is a rather hoppy pilsner, fantastic aroma and extremely crisp. Very easy drinking with this one, I wish I could take this home and drink while watching a baseball game.
