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.

Lubiere (12883) - 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.

j12601 (9548) - 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.

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Herbal hop bitterness and sulphur-y notes whirl within this Pilsener’s furious carbonation lending a dryish, drinkable example.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A tower of foam covers the cloudy blond.
-This high level of carbonation overshadows the malts’ depths and the hops’ spiciness.
-A touch of diacetyl is found underneath.
-This may not feel that authentic, but it is a decent quaff nonetheless.
-The flavor profile lacks the clarity I love in the style.

Bottle.

16oz pour at Salty Pig. Hazy deep gold with zero head. Nose is neutral, grass, hay, slight honey. Flavor is grassy, malty, bread, lemon. Clean, grassy finish. Good.

BBB63 (6557) - 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.

egajdzis (6105) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Lightly hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt, straw, light grass. Taste of light doughy sweetness, toasty, lightly bitter, grassy hop finish.

kramer (5828) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold body with a beautiful one finger frothy white head that faded to a wispy film, light lacing. The nose is spot on for the style, great clean bready malt, perfect floral perfumy hops with very delicate slight hint of yeastiness. The flavor is dry, crisp and perfectly hopped. Wonderfully dry with the perfect level of juicy bitterness that really lingers well past the swallow. It just makes you want to take one sip after another. This really would be a great beer to session on. Light bodied with perfect pinpoint fizzy carbonation. Great beer, wish I would have bought a lot of this.

Can shared by Jeff, thanks. Gold color. Light bitterness and malt flavor Good malt but lacks a hop profile that a good pilsner needs. Soft, smooth palate.

JulienHuxley (5590) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
On tap at the Hill tavern. Aroma is grainy, really bready, legit Czech Pils aroma, very light grassy hop. Taste is grainy, very bready, light hoppiness. Palate is med-light bodied with good carbonation. Decent.
