From the pounder can. Pours a very light yellow. Light cereal aroma. Nice perfumery taste to it. A little dry and a little sweet. A really nice lager.

Had on draft at the brewery. Looks great, crystal clear thin quickly dissipating head. The aroma is sweet malts, spicy sass hops. The flavor is sweet pilsner malts, spicy/floral hops, herbal, the sulfur character of the yeast is a bit strong for my palate. A solid pilsner.

maekchu (2300) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2013
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.

Thanks to Ben and Christian for this wonderful beer!--Poured a rich copper-golden body with a decent white head. Nose of bready malts and fresh fruity hops. A PNW take on the Czech Pils. Lots of floral notes and chewy malt character. I loved the amalgum of the two worlds’ brew styles. Very very nice beer!

Davros (2035) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2013
Pours gold with a lasting head. Nose shows lemon/dill sorachi-like notes, soft bready malt and banana. Quite nice. Flavours include more bready notes, soft dill and spicy hops. Enjoyable stuff. Carbonation could be higher.

Can from K&G. Nice for a session. Aromas of citrus, hay. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, average length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Yellow, with a frothy head.

Reid (1949) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 16, 2012
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!

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!

poisoneddwarf (1767) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - OCT 24, 2012
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.
