COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Using Nobel hops our brewer has created a well balanced beer with a nice golden color and a crisp dry finish. Light in color, this pilsner is brewed in the classic Bohemian style.

12oz can via trade with tgenenbacher, Thanks Todd! Pours straw gold with a 1 finger, slightly chunky white head that fades to a thick skim and holds. Aroma is grain, nuts, toast, mineral and a light bread yeast starter. Flavor is very grainy malt up front, followed by toasted grain, dusty straw, grass, prarie flower floral notes and a hint of citrus to finish. Palate is suprisingly creamy, medium bodied, lightly carbonated and slightly dry/chalky, but still overall creamy to the finish, nice. I really enjoyed this brew, nice texture and mouthfeel.

I strongly dislike this style, so that is why my rating is this low....but anyway, for a pilsner it was pretty good, one of the better ones I have tasted....as I said, personal, don’t like the style.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Bright golden with a creamy-white head and nice lace. Crisp on the palate. Grainy malts with a cereal-like sweetness. Earthy and wholesome. Hops were spicy and herbal, with aromas of grass and flowers and earth. Nice level of bitterness took the sweet edge off; it cleaned up good. Nice pilsner.

Nice look .. golden, bubbly with a nice adhesive stark white head. Nice Saazy aroma. Citric and sweet, malty with a mellow finish. Decent; Pug Ryan’s best.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2013 Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with light notes of lime zest and soap. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Surprisingly good from this brewery...bright floral hop nose and pretty clean. A little watery/flabby/sweet in the mouth, so needs improvement in that department...but overall pretty good stuff. Wish it was lower ABV too, 5.8% is pretty much bock strength, this could be a repeat purchase at 4.8% with a crisper finish.
