Our best selling beer, probably owing to its mildness and light body. Golden in color, Bug is a refreshing, Bohemian Pilsner. Our gateway beer to what lies beyond.

On tap at the brewpub:
Crisp, wooden, citrusy hoppiness giving their best to a fizzy body...Not enough malt to be tasted, a little straw and that’s it...In the vycepni style of bohemian pilsners, and almost a good emulation of these light pils...

On tap at the Run of the Mill brewpub with my wife on our last night in Maine. Pours a crystal clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet and grainy. Quite sweet, a lot more than I thought it would be from the nose. Grainy, candy like. Grainy and sweet again into the finish, not much going on, gently bitter on the end.

(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub in Hollowell, ME. Is the People of Maine know anything - its "bugs" (and NOT brewing robust and trendsetting beers)! Pours a cloudy, gold body with a thin, dissipating white, frothy head. Nose of straw and lemon. A body of thin lactic sea water and a hint of lemon. Average yet thirst quenching!

Hmm, I would have guessed pale lager as this is hardly a Bohemian pilsener. Unfiltered appearance shows a lightly cloudy lemon pie yellow, with a small, poorly retained white head that creates no lacing.
The nose is predominantly sweet, pils-like malts, rather doughy as well, with a clean yeast, a touch of light sourdough or minerals and minimally apparent, mildly citric (lemon zest and some herbs) hops that remind me of magnum or sterling (though very weakly so). Most of the aroma is dominated by the sweet doughiness.
Flavor is not as sweet as the aroma suggests, with lightly pesky carbonation pulling apart the sticky honey-dough maltiness and inserting vaguely crisp yeast and hops (light herbs and lemons) in between. The texture is unusual, however, in that it is very unfiltered and high in residual sugars. Fortunately, because of the carbonation, it works well enough and provides a soothing, light, malted lager with clean enough flavors and light hops. Rating is more based against a pale lager style and would be significantly lower based against a Bohemian pils.

Hazy blonde color with a ring of white lace. Aroma of malt and citrus. Refreshing flavor of malt and citrus. The body is light with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. A good refreshing lager enjoyed on a really hot day.

I am not a lager guy so my rating may be skewed. This was just a bit better then the macros of the world. Taste of corn with some Pilsner malt. Watery and bland.
