COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In The beginning, there were ales. As far as anyone knows, the first beers made were ’top-fermented’, which is longhand for ’Ale’. Sometime long before the 1860’s, beers became popular that were made in Northern Europe with a bottom fermenting yeast strain that liked the colder temperatures. Because they had to spend weeks aging before they tasted their best, they were known as ’Lager’ beer. Lager is the German word for ’storage’. Since they had to sit a while, they took up more time and space and as such were harder and more expensive to make. Where ales are meaty, lagers are sinewy. Where ales are street, lagers are ’haute couture’. Where an ale might hit you over the head and take your wallet, lagers donate to charity and adopt stray cats. While an ale might steal your car or try to date your daughter and keep her out all night for who-knows-what purpose, a well bred lager would offer to clean your house while you’re on vacation and leave fresh scones and coffee for you when you return. Now, don’t get us wrong, ales can be a lot of fun to hang out with when you’re in the right mood, and if you have bail money on you. But what’s wrong with livin’ uptown from time to time, on a nice street, where the doormen all wear those little uniforms, the air smells of flowers, and lagers rule the Earth. Cheers!

Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2005
A golden beer with beige head. The aroma is sweet and slightly dusty - it must be the hops. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of straw and hints of caramel.

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2006
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, creamy small white head. Lacing. Aroma is hayish and American hoppy (Czech pils, HA!). Flavour is hayish hoppy, very dry palate. Flavour is a bit more Czech style, though the American sweetish hops does come through quite much. Very smooth and refreshing though. More like Pils meets APA/IPA.

omhper (19308) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2004
Bottled. Hazy golden, firm head. Grassy nose, medium dry. Some chewy malts are there along with hay-like hops. Balanced bitter finish. A solid, very quaffable pilsener.

5.3%. Clear gold beer. Crisp semi dry palate. A good even malt base on which light peach and orange hops sit well. Surprisingly bitter aftertaste. Finishes a little creamy. Decent!

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 23, 2006
Hazy light amber color. Light malt, caramel and smokey aroma. The flavor has a sharp, dry malt character with a caramel-like bitterness. Very long final, no hop aromas; flat. Not bad, but absolutely not a Czech Pils.
