COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first lager produced with the 20 bbl brewhouse. This pilsner is a clear golden color. Four additions of Saaz hops lend a spicy-floral hop component.

Clear golden yellow with a frothy white head. Grainy malt aroma and flavor, maybe a slight metallic taste.

12 oz can. Nice and hoppy aroma and flavor. Beer overall tastes great but a little hoppy for pils style and lacks some of the malt flavors found in a pils. Very light yellow/straw color with white head; almost like a blonde. Points are for an overall good tasting brew but I didnít knock off for style. Palate experience was ok.

A great pils and god knows there arenít a lot of them. Victory Prima comes to mind. Very nice aroma of fruit and sweet malt. Pour is light amber with a creamy lasting head. Flavor is crisp and clean. Some fruit, malt with a bit of a hop bitterness in the end. Finishes nice and dry One of the best Pilsners Iíve had.

A: The pour is a light yellow straw color with a fluffy white head. S: The nose is slightly bready with a touch of eathy hops but the unmistakable scent of lager yeast. T: The flavor is note quite as good as I would have thought from an Oskar Blues beer. There is a lot that reminds me of "adjunct lager" here, with the exception of a bit of bready malt and just a hint of hop character toward the finish. M: The body is medium with a high level of carbonation. D: Far from my favorite Oskar Blues beer. This was a lot close to some of the other adjunct lagers Iíve had than to a Czech Pils. I suppose you canít win them all.

slightly hazy yellow, thin white head, creamy medium body, medium-high co2.

aroma: pale malt, peppery noble hops.

taste:
T1= pale malt, co2, maybe a hint of diacetyl.
T2= creamy pale malt, a touch of herbal and pepper hops, a bit of grain.
T3= filmy hop herbalness (reminds me of brussels sprouts, maybe even with some butter on them, they just need a little salt).

i keep expecting skunk or cardboard aromas to pop out, just due to the association iíve developed between them and the pale malt / noble hops. simple but tasty and clean. well-made pilsner, without all the thiness and unpleasant flavors that come with the adjuncts and abusive storage conditions that have ruined this style for me. this comes across to me as a food-friendlier version of an english bitter (due mostly to the extra co2, which is high for my tastes, but accurate for style).

From a can poured a slightly hazy golden color with a fair amount of head. Grassy malty flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

There are some unique aspects to this one. I like the flavor, but Iím not sure it is much akin to the proper style and flavor. Even after sitting, there is no clarity but more of a haze like a Hefe. The flavor is good if unusual. Iíd drink this regularly. Thereís a bit of a soapy mouthfeel and taste. It is a bit awkward to me although it is overtaken by the somewhat sweet grassy taste that dominates. Iíd drink some more, but not as sessiony as a normal pilsner in my book.

yinzerbeernut (180) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2010
On pour this is a slightly hazy pale yellow pilsner with a white head and lazy bubbles. I pick up notes of alcohol, simple dry spice, daisy, and a hint of peeled banana. This is a light bodied, easy drinking beer that does not sacrifice on taste. There is a light hop touch coupled with wheat leaving a multigrain bread feel.

Nice dark semi-transparent beer with a white fluffy head. Nice slightly citrus aroma with some notes of hay and some light toast. Lightly carbonated with a mostly malty flavor, some muted spruce/resin notes. Tasty pils.
