UPDATED: DEC 6, 2004 2004 draught @ Framingham location. Well, itís almost certainly not the same beer Volgon had, but the one I had, which the bartender called, "Pilsener", is a pilsener, not a bohemian or classic german, so I will just rate it here. I just donít have the heart to add a new beer to the already ungodly long and confusing list of john harvard beers. Ahem, anyways, this was a damn good pils from start to finish. Good mildly hazy yellow/hay golden color, small white head. Aroma has plenty of saaz hops, light citrus notes and some sweet malt. Flavor is lightly spicy, sweet, but not overly so and well hopped. Crisp and very bitter on the finish, though not unbalanced. Served cold and well-appreciated that way. This was about the most refreshing beer Iíve had in a long time. No thinning, no off-flavors. Good body, light carbonation and well-balanced with ample use of hops. Slightly sour yeast notes in the middle that donít quite work, but that was one of the few problems.

On tap 7/6/02 in Cambridge, MA: Light yellow color, ends slightly bitter. About as bland as beer gets.
