COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Pilsener follows the Bohemian tradition. We use imported Pilsener Malt and a lot of Czech Saaz hops to produce a refreshing crisp, hoppy lager that you’ll want to drink all day. This beer was brewed in July and has been lagering since. It is filtered to show off its brilliant golden color.

Brewer’s specs:

Malt: Pilsener Malt, Carapils Malt, Crystal Malt

Hops: 90% Czech Saaz, 10% Hallertauer (another ’noble’ hop known for it’s flavor & aroma)

Fermented under 50C for 14 days using our house lager yeast

OG 11.3 Plato 4.4% ABV

kidmartinek (3574) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Pale golden lager with a smaller white ring head. The aroma is sort of sweet, wet, straw and light pilsner malt. Sweeter flavor of wet grains. Damn, once again, just hard to get behind.

MrHangover (2455) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2013
Sample @ GABF 13. Typical pilsner look and aroma. Flavour is rather bitter. Short finish, uninteresting brew.

jandd1983 (2505) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 13, 2012
It poured a clear golden/yellow color with a small white head. The aroma was of malt and some grassy hops. The taste was grassy, malty, and a little dry. One of their better beers.

unclemike (2214) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Clear gold pour with no head. Aroma is slightly skunked (somehow), pretzel malts. Flavor is crisp, malty. Fizzy mouth feel. Surprisingly unoffensive.

Really great season beer on tap at Mccoys. Always a favorite when it is on tap.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2009
On tap at the Foundry with theisti. Yellow pour with small white head. Nose of hops and grainy malts. Taste is grain, grass and malts. Good Pils.

heemer77 (5098) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. The body was dark gold with a bright white head. The aroma was potatoes and grass. There was also a black pepper hint. The taste was bitter potato peels and some black pepper spice. A little bit of bell pepper. Nice and relatively hoppy.

theisti (3185) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Pint draft at the Foundry, which is basically the back bar of the McCoy’s Brewpub iun Kansas City, Missouri. Pour is clear golden, with a smallish white head. Aroma of malt and some grassy hops. Very soft and delicate nose, though very clean. Taste is grassy, malty, a little dirty. A lot of character for a Pils, and really well made. Palate has nice body, a good unfiltered pils feel to it. Clean finish. Nice one, McCoys is done some nice beers recently.

Rastacouere (6123) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2005
Unfiltered gold wearing a gentle white head. Soft bready malts dance all over the oily spicy and floral Saaz-like hops. Linear evolution from sweet to dry procures a feeling of accomplishment and good execution, but the finish comes surprisingly fast and leave us with not much to enjoy. A dead-on interpretation that doesn’t even leave the line enough to leave me with a marking souvenir.
