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.

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.

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.

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

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.

12oz bottle, purchased at Craft Beer Cellar - Belmont, MA. Light grassy noble hop and pils malt aroma. Fluffy, fresh malt flavor. This has got a good build, but is somewhere between a full on Bo Pils and a lighter pils, like a Classic German or a plain ’ole pilsner. Hard to rate highly as a Bo Pils, because lack of appropriate body and texture, but certainly enjoyable for fresh, clean, bright, heavily drinkable flavors. In some ways, a compromised between sessionability and style. That said, lots and lots of flavor for a 4% beer.

12oz received in a recent trade with mkabull. Thanks again Alec! Pours a hazy dark yellowish orange color with pale golden yellow hues when held to a light and a one finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots and streaks of lace left behind. Earthy aroma with hints of grassy hops, straw, light fruit and pale malt. The floral hops are most prominent followed by some apple, pear and biscuit. Medium bodied and fuller than expected fr the style with a god balance of grassy and citrus hops, pale malt, straw, hay and light fruit. Surprisingly hop forward but not too bitter or dry with a nice floral, earthy presence which compliments the straw/hay character and pale malt presence. A decent amount of biscuit flavor along with apple, pear and faint alcohol. Slightly dry presence. Overall this beer was a pleasant surprise. Clean, crisp, well balanced and extremely quaffable. I could see myself drinking several of these in a sitting and would probably buy this regularly if I had access.

Very nice noble aroma with touch of carnal and honey. Very clear burnished brass color with persistent white foamy head. Delicious malty flavor reminiscent of easter bread. Very well made and refreshing.

There is a lineage with this and its brother ale. The hopiness is attenuated as is expected in a pilsner and balanced wth the malt wth a tip to the hops. The head is immediate and white quickly dissipating leaving a ring and very little lacing. Malt is up front followed by a hops bitter aftertaste. I am tired of the high gravs touted as being the epitome of the brewer’s art. Nonesense. This is a beer that can be enjoyed for its complexity with friends for hours while maintaining sensibility.
