The birth of Pilsener beer can be traced back to its namesake, the ancient city of Plzen which is situated in the western half of the Czech Republic. The Czech Pilsener is light straw to golden color and crystal clear. Hops are very prevalent usually with a spicy bitterness and or a spicy floral flavor and aroma, notably one of the defining characteristics of the Saaz hop. Smooth and crisp with a clean malty palate, many are grassy. Some will show some archaic yeast characteristics similar to very mild buttery flavors and aromas

Bottled. Poured clear, brilliant golden with a white head. The aroma picked up kind of dank bread and grainy notes with dusty earth and light floral accents.. clean, but almost to a fault because it was very reserved. The flavor found bread and honey sweetness at the core, with toasted grains laced throughout.. spicy and floral accents were interesting, but a touch sharp.. lemon zest and medicinal notes joined the spicy stuff on the fairly assertive finish. Light-bodied with tighter, prickly carbonation on the palate.. decent balance.. drinkable, but not great.

Poured a clean, clear light gold with a light head and minimum lacing. Aroma was a mix of the hops and malts with slight pungency. Taste was predominately of hops with a nice malty backbone. Very easy drinking. Palate was decent but nothing to write home about. Overall, a clean, drinkable pilsner.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle at the Casanova Beer Cave festival. Pale yellow pour, small white head. Grass, grain, lightly hopped - very nice for the style.

Draft at Old Fashioned. Filtered pale yellow-peach. Thin non-head. The noble hops carry it, while the malts are a little fruity and it displays sort of Ale-like tones,,not very Lagery..or true to style. Not outright bad, just sort of amateurish. Not one I’d seek out again.

12oz bottle pours a clear straw in color with a small white head. Aroma is yeast, grains, malt, and hops. Taste is very light, hops, grains, malt, slightly floral. Crisp, clean, and refreshing. Pretty nice!

12 oz bottle. Pours clear straw yellow with soapy white head. The aroma is hay and some herbal hops and a subtle bready malt note. The flavor is quite herbal with some wood and cracker notes. The finish is woody with just a little bit of a metallic note and a dryish hop bite. Not outstanding, but pretty easy to drink.

Not bad, not great. With an aggressive pour there was a small to medium sized white heead that soon disappears and no lace. Color is a clear yellow gold with a few bubble trails. Aroma is going in the direction of the Czech Pils- malt, grain, grass, hop. Flavor has gone a little too far in the butter diacetyl direction, plus the nose qualities. Body is ok and carbonation is just a touch soft. Finish is like flavor and of short to medium length and a bit of sweetness in there too, that is nicely balanced with the tang. Servicable.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

Says "Czech style pilsener". Well 6% abv is already a bit high. 12 oz twist off bottle purchased cold from the brewery. It pours pretty much like a czech pils, hard to get that one too wrong. It smells like a blonde ale, not a czech pils. The taste is closer to a czech pils than most but it still is too sweet and too undeveloped. American brewers REALLY need to taste czech and german pilseners, because they are reaching when they call their beers czech or german style.
