Very impressed with this pilsener. Has to be compared to other pilseners and not heavier beers, but in it’s own class - very good. Medium body and bright taste.

A golden colore, slight head that disipates fairly quickly. A malty flavor, low hop profile. Very boring.

Not bad for a pilsner - but then again, not my style - too light, too boring. blah. no need to say more - you can imagine how it tastes

(Bottle) Bohemian Pilsener? Heck no. Drinkable? Heck yes. This beer is grossly miscategorized: very little bitterness, hops, and the character of the malt is not grassy and clear like in the Pilseners. This tastes more like any number of other styles...it’s light, but not that crisp and refreshing. Too bland for me.

On draft at Karl Strauss Universal City, 11/26/07. Slightly cloudy and pale yellow, nice head and lacing. Sweet toast aroma. Flavor is slightly roasty with wheat bread toast notes. Finish has signature pilsener corn flavor. One of the better microbrew pilseners I have had, though not outstanding.

Sample at the Downtown San Diego location. Nifty, spicy flavor to go with the light hops with a little vanilla note at the end. Slight hop aroma. Nice, unexpected surprise.

SD trip, Karl Strauss LaJolla, sampler, had these while having a larger DIPA, flavors and ratings may be rough: I usually hate pils and find it to be a waste of time, however this one had mild bready/yeast flavor and wasn’t all bad. Still a pils tho...

I enjoyed this beer from the beer pub on tap. It had a good taste, not amazing, but definitely consumable. The beer was real yellow, and kind of foggy, not bad though.

Pours a typical golden but caries an amazing aroma of malt and hops, the taste was very sweet and malty followed by a refreshing hop bitterness. While definitely not the best beer in the world it definitely is refreshing and beats the hell out of budweiser
