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.

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.

Mild sweet grass aroma. Light yellow body with a burnt orange hue. Head is starts off big and settles to an inch of soap like bubbles. Crisp grain malt with a splash of bitterness. I even sensed some lemon on my palate but was brief. Dry citrus tart finish. Refreshing and friendly.

Une cannette. Une bičre blonde jaune dorée avec une mousse blanche épaisse. Un nez de graine pâle, de houblon saaz et de citron. Une bouche simple mais agréable, un peu sucrée avec des saveurs de grain et de biscuit. Facile et sans prétention mais sommes toute agréable.

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.

Poured from a 12oz can. Poured a nice head with nice solid lacing. Has a very good European Pilsner taste, but lacking a bit on the ending. There is a faint note is sweetness, but is otherwise pretty straightforward. Extremely drinkable. Interested to see how it develops as it warms. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Julio’s. Pours a glowing yellow, effervescent. Aroma is pleasant: grassy hops, oats, orange. Taste is lightly toasted grain, citrus, lingering bitterness--bold flavor for a 4% ABV beer. There would be much worse things than a couple of these on a hot summer day.

Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
Keg at Legal Test Kitchen. Clear gold, white head which lasts perfectly, nice lacing. Light caramel, grass and DMS on the nose. Taste is very DMS, light malt, light hop. Grassy veggie finish, nice prickle, medium body. Just about drinkable but not my thing.

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.
