3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy yellow with a little white head. Decent carbonation makes the head stay throughout drinking. Very malty smelling with a little bit of earthy hops. I don’t think it’s the typical saaz smell that many Bohemian Pils use. Pretty ease to drink lager, you can taste an earthy hop and some malt along with some deli meat? Not quite the hop flavor I look for in a pilsner but acceptable. This isn’t the best American "Bohemian Pils" out there but it could make a nice session beer at the right price.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2007 It’s ok. Nowhere near as good as the Prima Pils by Victory. What the fuck? Is this a tough style to make taste good? I am constantly disappointed by Pilsners. Fuck me...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2014 12 Oz Bottle. A lucious milky foam towers over a furious cone of gold, bringing rich dawcet tones of gentle grassy malts, wafting summer breezes in farm fields and a settling promise of gentle hop caresses. Flavor starts crisply and stunningly clean and sweet. A nuanced mid-malt, blonde in nature, refined in actuality brings a sweep of light lemon essence, calm breads and wispy esters. So pure and divine. It’s a breathable concotion, with the most perfected balance of clean, clear, crisp malt and noble hops rounding the whole experience out in the backend. A really fantastic Pils.

Draft; at San Clemente Pizza Port. Poured a gold, white head. Aroma was of fruit and malt, with a hint of hops. Alot of sweetish malts in the flavor, with some decent hop presence. Good on a warm day.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very pretty, slightly haze golden yellow with next-to-nothing head. Aroma is sweet, has toffee and a malty edge - some hops as well. Flavour is quite nice. The toffee maltyness begins the taste. Then quite a clear and crisp bitterness, finishing with a slight flowery and berry-like tone to it. Great balance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting Commercial DeScription. A nice foamy head greeted me when this one was poured. It reminds of a hefe head. Aroma is hop and fruit. First taste is very unique and refreshing. The hops bite at the back of the tongue. Creamy mouthfeel. As the beer warms the deep hop bite settles into a kind of "IPA" taste. This beer screams "quality."

Nice golden color with a thich off white head, big hop boquet, nice hop flavor on a light to meduim mouth feel. Brussels lace adorns the glass till empty. Could use a touch mor emalth to balance it better but still a great pilsner.

Bottle. Small white and quickly disappearing head. Hazy orange body. Lovely barley malt aroma with fruity notes. Pretty dry hops flavor but again you are not in doubt about the barley malt. Long powerful aftertaste seldom found at a pilsner.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle from ace bev. pours a cloudy amber with moderate white head that fades into a creamy lacing. aroma is bready, some fruit (peaches), some herbal hops. medium-light body. the malt is there in the beginning, but it fades into a very clean finish (only a hint of caramel malt remains), with tons of hop flavor. grapefruit, pine, some of the funky hops you expect from a pils, but this is definitely an american take on the style. that said, i love it. the perfect summer quaffer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Very nice head with a dark brown body. Cake-like aroma that was much sweeter than expected. In the mouth the first thing I noted was the soft floral qualities. Some nice soft melon qualities blend well with the balancing hops. This is not ones usual Bohemian pils, lacks the strong hops and that definitive pilsner malt. But this is a wonderfully simple, drinkable session beer that I would recommend to anyone.
