COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Session Pils salutes the unfiltered Pilsners of the Czech Republic: crisp, herbal with a biscuity depth and balanced hop finish. The Czech culture is a beer culture - drinking more beer per capita than any other nation. And their beer of choice is the low gravity, unfiltered and unpasteurized Pilsner, known as "workers" or "tap" beer. In the end, Czech Pilsner serves the same function as Brit Session Beer - lower ABV, great flavor, and built for multiple pints.

BroSpud (1827) - , Massachusetts, USA - NOV 3, 2011
12oz bottle. Light golden pour with a white head. This is OK I guess for something with such a low ABV but I found it to be very thin and flavorless. Was hoping for something more since I kind of liked the Notch ale. Oh well.

BBB63 (6396) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Bottle and served in no-nik pint glass: Pours a clean straw golden hue with a fizzy but lasting head and left spotty lace upon the glassware. The aroma has notes of biscuity grains, grassy and herbal noble hops, slight lemon and sulfur, even a tad minty and leafy. Sadly the taste does not match the nose, sure there is a nice restrained classic bitterness but alas it is also too grainy, too acidic, and too papery. Some oxidation creeping in making me wonder the age of the bottle. Not terrible yet but I am pretty sure it is going downhill fast. Because of this I think the mouth feel may have been affected too, not has sharp nor crisp as I hoped. Reminds me a lot of what happens to SA Noble Pils and Back Road Millennium Lager, when they go downhill they go quickly and the hops lose that "snap". I would like to try a super fresh sample of this better yet on tap... alas I do not see me going to Massachusetts any time soon.

Lubiere (10875) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2011
A golden pils with a thin white head. In aroma, a corny grist malt with herbal notes, a bit strange. In mouth, a smooth chalky malt, grassy, grainy, just OK. On tap at Deep Ellum, Oct. 8 2011.

12oz bottle. Not expecting much after having the ale. Color is a bit light, decent golden color. Clean bready notes on the nose, seems like a decent pilsner. Across the palate it’s more balanced than the ale and is better everyday drinking. Would have been better to slug this one back in the summer.

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass. The color is a gold/yellow with some cloudy orange tint. There is about two fingers of foamy white head white a slight bit of lacing left on the glass. The color is a little hoppy at first with slightly dry malt straightening the edges out. There is a small grassy flavor toward the end that puts a final signature to the end flavor of this beer. The feel of this beer is highly drinkable with no alcohol detectable. There is a smooth but light feel that makes this beer go down quicker then it seams at first. A really good session beer.

j12601 (7456) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber gold with a medium sized white head. A touch of sweetness on the nose, lightly hoppy, crisp grain. Sweet and grainy, a bit of toast and crackery biscuit flavors. Big earthy gritty grain bitterness shows up quick and strong. Nice and easy drinking, and a whole lot of body and flavor for a 4% beer.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2011
12 oz bottle from a 6-pack from the cooler from Julios. not sure if this has a date on it? So I suppose it could have been a few months old. Still I wasn’t impressed with this. Pours a mostly clear deep golden almost a light copper in the large mug. Initial good foam when poured hard- but head fades eventually- and overall carbonation seemed a bit low. Aroma has a medium DMS- especially when cold, then eases up a bit and gives way to a touch of fruitiness, light grassy hops, mostly a dull toasty maltiness, and slight cara, but low on the fresh bready crisp pils malts. Flavor is cracker, light dull toast, slight sweetness, mild oxidation and mild DMS with hints of fruitiness, seemed a bit old- not crisp, fresh and snappy or hoppy as expected. Easy drinking- has some slight potential so I may try again if super fresh on tap.

Bready notes along slight citrus make this session beer complex and enjoyable

MaBeer1972 (1420) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 3, 2011
A deep hazy golden color with a light white head that goes to lacing soon. Light malty aroma. Body is light and very drinkable. Classic Pilsner hop profile. Nothing overpowering. Just a clean, simple and very drinkable and refreshing beer. This could be one of my new everyday go to beers.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 awesome. pours a lightly hazed golden hue with a thick big bubbled long lasting crater head. aroma of bright lemongrass, rustic dirt earth dry herbal farmhouse. chewy, lemony biscuit dough. leaves a dry, rustic, fresh cut grass, herbal leafy fall day taste in the back of the mouth. clean. crisp. complex. awesome fresh. best and most authentic bohemian pils of come across in the US, and overwealmed with joy to have it available a half a block away. just about perfect.
