philipmeese (84) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - AUG 12, 2013
On tap at beer dinner. Startlingly clear, light golden pour with thin head. Fresh citrus and malt aroma. Flavor light orange to lemon with grass and spice. A great example of the style. Very drinkable. Loving the Lost Nation line-up.

Beerdedone (2603) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Sampled at the brewery. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of pils malts, grains and grass. Flavor or pils malts, grains, grassy hops and had a wisp of lemon.

AdamJackson (2522) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Off yellow and clear. Smells like cedar chips and wood. Oaky with a thick and heavy malt backbone. Very commanding and present with burnt sugar, vanilla and caramel apple.

nimbleprop (4756) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Sampled at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with some soft, sudsy, lacing head. Nose is solid, very grainy, dry two row malt, a little cracker, soggy bread, bread yeast, some root veg, a little lemon as well. Flavor is spot on, grainy, bready, yeasty, cracker, malt, lemon. Clean finish. Really solid for the style.

[ Keg ][ ~5oz ][ Three Penny Taproom VT ][ Free ][ Tumbler? ][ 5/25/14 ]
>> Clear golden yellow pour, weak foam. Spotty lace. Yellow apple and doughy nose. Taste is quite nice: malty and husky, lemon, biscuit, definitely in pilsner vein. Aroma really comes together up after decanting- slight funk, sourdough bread culture, Berliner sour mash. Taste is spot on with powerful grassy hops and big dry and grassy finish. Impressive.

Draught at Three Penny Taproom, 3/15/14
Deep burnished orange body is topped by a small white head showing moderate to low retention. High clarity.
Spring water, minerals, very light sourdough and some dry, herbal and peppery hop notes in the nose. Quite reserved, maybe a touch low on aroma but no flaws or alcohol noted.
Sourdough-like maltiness (munich or vienna) up front is appropriate and leads to a softer, pils malt-like sweetness that is brushed with pepper and light herbal hoppiness. Clean, rather watery and a touch light on the carbonation, or perhaps it’s just a little loose/fizzy, leading to being a little "heavier" than it actually is (and not producing as strong an aroma). Still, this is nicely attenuated, very clean and hard to argue with. Following up HF Susan is a tough act to follow, as well.
Agree with Martin, this seems more of a classic German Pils than it does a svetly.

WillRunForBeer (632) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Tasterat the source. Oours pale orange gold with a clingy white head. Aroma is Saaz. Light pale malt backbone, saaz hop. A better version of a fresh, unskunked Heineken.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This crisp Pilsener presents spicy noble hops and crunchy cereals in a spritzy, slender mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the misty straw blond.
-This is an excellent quaffer.
-It feels more like an German Pils than a Czech brewpub Svetly.
-This is obviously very well balanced.

On tap at the brewery taproom.

Ernesto987 (3648) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 16, 2014
on draft at craft beer cellar, this one was bad, caustic and out of balance with an astringent malt falvor. Not a fan at all.

Minderbinder (1740) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2014
On tap at The Reservoir (Waterbury) Pours light blond with low white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is of wheat?, pils malt. Taste is of smoke, wheat, sulfur according to Iggy, grain, fruits. Palate: Light body. Refreshing. Overall: Good. A bit sulfury. Surprisingly fruity for a pils.

Stine (1527) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Straw gold; dusty apple and mild rotting grass aroma; lightly sugary, with crackers and clean malt.

Flavor is crisp cereal malt and honey; dry grasses, rotten banana.

Sprightly palate; medium carbonation; finishes with a little weight, which is the only real negative quality here.
