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.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - 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.

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

dfroms (287) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 2, 2014
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 (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - 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.

MartinT (7952) - 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.

Steve_0 (2757) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Can at home, extra’d in a trade. Pour is clear yellow with a big frothy white head and great lacing. Grassy, doughy, biscuity, crackery, slightly fruity, and bready aroma. Taste is minerally, floral, grassy, cracker malt, doughy, and somewhat chalky. Light body with crisp carbonation. Crushable, for sure.

egajdzis (5364) - Spring Mount, 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.

ScipioA (313) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Pours into a mug a hazy yellow with a big pillowy white head. Spicy and slightly metallic hops dominate the aroma along with some bakery smells from the yeast. Shifts to a very grainy flavor with more of a floral hop profile. The beer’s mouthfeel strikes a nice balance between thin and thick, but is brought down by excessive carbonation. Finishes up with a lingering bitter dryness with floral hints. Good lower abv beer, but Notch’s saison is much better.

Bill Becker (355) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JAN 26, 2014
This pours a pale gold with a 1 finger head of foam and again for a Notch beer, some very good lacing. Aromas of spicy herbal hops are at the forefront. I get just a tad of a malt smell...bread? Maybe biscuit? Wow, another brew with some great balance. Yeah, it’s biscuit for the malt profile, the hops are herbal alright, just a nice crisp spiciness that doesn’t go over the top. Swishing the beer in my mouth to get the ultimate experience of what a brew has to offer, I’m amazed that THIS is what I get in a 4% abv brew made in the US. Nice lightish mouthfeel, the drinkability, at least for me, is through the roof. Yikes, I love this beer!

madvike (2759) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Lightly hazy golden pour. Nose is floral hops, grainy with a bit of sweetness and nice pale malt. Taste is grainy, husky, with some dusty yeast and lovely light floral hops. Thin and well-carbonated. Awesome.

reggiedunlop (3109) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Pours a clear yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has lots of grass anda touch of skunky and spicy notes...some straw. Flavor is fairly balanced between straw and hopy notes of grass/spice/skunk. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and grassy/bitter. a nice sessionable pils.
