COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

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: APR 1, 2014 12 oz. bottle. Stored cold, looks fresh. I keep going back and forth on this one. If it is my first beer of the night, it seems pretty good, but if you drink a Czech or German import first, then not so much. I do not get the fresh grain aroma and taste from this beer, it tastes like an adjunct beer. Also, it does not have that typical Czech ester character that I am looking for. Not bad, but not smooth, crisp or Czech as stated in the description.

Straight up bad beer. Really nothing redeeming about this one. Was unfortunate enough to add this to a build-your-own six pack.

Picked up on a visit to the brewery and restaurant. Went great with the warm pretzel, brat burger and beer cheese soup. The National Brewery Museum is worth a tour. This pilsener is smooth, crisp and clean with a malty finish.

Nice clean and refreshing Pilsener. Golden in color, clear, minimal head, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, Overall I really enjoyed this beer. I’m surprised it isn’t rated much higher.

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.

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.

Lemon and mild grain aroma. Golden with white frothy head. Malt, mild grain, and mild lemon flavours. Medium hop finish.
