3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden pour, with a diminished head...no lace. A grainy spiced nose predominates. The flavors are similar, with grains, yeast and lemons. A hopped grain finish combines with the remaining citrus to make a lightly bready mouthfeel. Its a decent sessionista, but not very complex, and a bit unilateral.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear pale yellow with a frothy bone white head. The aroma is grassy, husky, spicy and clean - quite nice. Medium body that is crisp and has a fresh cut grassiness, grainy clean malt and some spicy hops. The finish has even more of a spicy hop presence. It is not the most complex beer, but its not a very complex tasting style. What is here is done very well and is a great interpretation of the style. Thumbs up for a quality pils that I’m glad is finally in my area of the country - a good pils was not easy for me to come by.

Draught at Horse Brass. Faint malty aroma. Clear gold colour with white head, and sufficient lace. Malty pilsenery flavour with a nice hoppy bite. Long finish. A worthy example of the breed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz stubbie. Gentle nose of hops and a sweet opening to a nice rounded malt body that is not overpowering but just right. A finish that leaves one gently salivating. A very nice lager.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice clear copper gold, sparkly and fizzy. The half-inch of white head disappears almost immediately. I don’t detect much of an aroma at all.
Ah, but it tastes very nice. Crisp and dry, the malt is there but offset nicely by the hops. The hops are bold spicy and flavorful, a very good compliment to the dry finish and prevalent carbonation. The aftertaste is more of the same. Hops in the aftertaste a bit piney.

Nice golden color and aroma of saaz hops. Firm white head, medium body. Sweet matls followed by the strong bitter finish one expects from a Czech style pilner. Very nice.
