COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crisp and refreshing, this classic Bohemian brings noble hops and traditional German maltiness in perfect union before another healthy dose of imported hops tips the scale toward a decidedly hoppy finish.

One of my favorite pilsners, I love the hop nose in this beer and I love getting this beer on draught from the brewery. Not sure if its true or not but I heard the brewery stopped bottling this one and it is only offered on tap.

bag (106) - Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2008
From bottle, poured gold, not too light. Lots of head that stuck around forever. Musty aroma. Flavor was nice and slight, but a tad too bitter for what I expected. Went down smooth. I’d like to try this again just to see if my bottle might not have been beat.

Goodgrief (1811) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 24, 2008
June 2007 - Beer pours darker than the typical pilsner with moderate head and little lacing. Weak aroma of sweet pilsner malts. Flavor was mostly sweet pilsner malts and some mild bittering hops, but none of that grassy type aroma I like in a good pilsner. Very bland...almost like they wanted a beer to give the people who ask, "What do you have that’s like BUD?"

Poured a nice golden with a white head. Very smooth and malty. Was really surprised with the flavor, which was better than other pilsners I have tried.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 6, 2007
Poured a hazy dark gold color with a thin white head. Malty with notes of caramel in the aroma and flavor. Really don’t get much in the way of hops. Light bitterness on a semi-dry finish. Light body.

beerbill (3538) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2007
On tap at Lancaster Brewing. Arrived at the table a clear gold with a thin white head that disappeared after my first sip. Very light caramel malt aroma. Flavor was also very light caramel malt with just a touch of hops bitterness at the finish. This is an ok beer without paying attention to style, but not really what I would expect from a pilsener.

Pwn3d (1961) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2007
12 oz bottle split with JRedmond. Pours the body of a dark witbier or american wheat. Aroma is hoppy which totally throws off the taste. The taste is unexpectingly smooth and refreshing.

Tap at the brewpub; aroma of grain and a slight floral element. Flavor was similar but with a fairly strong citrus presence. Good for the summer.
