Our golden lager is a crisp, clean, easy drinking beer that has a full, balanced hop finish. An extremely drinkable beer that is perfect for any occasion.

On tap at Pizza Stone. Clear pale gold with lasting head and lace. Fresh mild grass and floral and crackery aroma. Mild crackery malts with hints of vanilla wafers with medium very dry very clean noble bitterness and super clean finish. Light and lively. An excellent classic interpretation.

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a light yellow color with a decent transparency about it. Carbonation rises at a light pace to fill a two finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. The smell starts off with a sweet and dry grassiness over top of a light biscuity goodness. Light floral leafiness rounds out the aroma. The taste was the sweet grassy dryness leading into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a smooth semi-sticky sweet feel laying down on my tongue. Overall, what a wonderful pilsener, think it leans towards the German side of the wheelhouse, but I have two more cans, so, I’m content with that. Wouldn’t mind with some bratwurst with this one!

Pours a clear yellow color with a white head. Aroma of malt and biscuits. Creamy with flavor of malt, biscuits, and cereal. Good stuff.

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.

On tap at Mad Taco Montpelier. Clear yellow piss pour. Smell is malty cracker, licorice, lemongrass. Taste is very refreshing, again with the slight licorice/sarsaparilla (best I can describe it) cracker, bready, lemons. Probably the best pilsner I have had to date.

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 (5607) - Arizona, USA - FEB 16, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 8, 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.

nimbleprop (7560) - 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.

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.

[ 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.
