Very mild grainy aroma. Clear, pale golden. Very skunky, wet dog flavour with sour boring dry experience.

On tap at Flying Pie Boise. Pours out a light straw. Topped with a white head. Not a bad aroma a little yeast in the tast.
Not bad at all for a Pils.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2007 Pours pale gold white head with some bubbles. Sweet dry light apple aroma. Big bittersweet hoppy flavor with mouth puckering finish. Amazing how much these reviews differ...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little different from the Czech Pils I’ve been drinking a lot of lately. Mostly hops, a little spicyness and malts in there. I put back a few so I guess it was an easy drinking beer. Not bad.

bottle at dicarlo’s tasting. the only thing i really remember about this is that it toally lacked any saaz hop character and thus didn’t seem at all like a pilsener. i think i would put it pretty close to a cleaner pale lager. i see it’s a bohemian pilsener, but it was more malt and almost no bitterness.

I seriously hope this was just a bad bottle. Poured very fizzy. Noticed tiny floaties,like micro sea monkeys hanging around under the bottom of the foam for a couple minutes. Nast off sour aroma with spoiled grain. Much like the super cheap baltic beers. First sip was the same as aroma. Left it alone for a few minutes and it became herbal and crisp. I did manage to finish it but this was near drainpour. Left me longing for a "Silver Bullet"

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2010 12oz bottle. Pours a clear, medium golden color; fluffy white head with great retention and lacing. Pleasant aroma, showing candy sugar and citrus and prominent mineral notes. Medium-to-full, chewy mouthfeel: wonderful candy sugar chewiness, with a lively citrus and vanilla-laced, effervescent core - ridiculously tasty, balanced, and drinkable. How did they put all this into a 5% bohemian pilsener? Long, citrus and marshmallow finish. EDIT: rerated on the West Coast, at the brewery: hugely bitter and rather prominent astringency for a pilsner...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2007 The body is a pretty and deep gold with plenty of carbonation and an eggshell colored head. The aroma has some grass and raw potatoes. There is a decent earthy foloral note, like smelling a freshly weeded flower bed. The taste is fairly spicy with some notes of parsnips. There is also some strong character of green bell pepper. A little too much of the earthy hops, but at least it’s a change from your typical pils.
