One of the best balanced Pilsners I’ve ever had. There’s some nice malt complexity in there set against a nice crisp finish. Forget Real Ale’s Firemans 4 and have one of these!

Pour is bright yellow with a dense white head...smells light with hints of toasted bread...lightly toasty flavor up front as well with a strong herbal and grass character following all the way through to the finish...not my thing...the herbal borderlined medicinal...

Only 55 rating???????? Hmmm, I thought this was a smooth& solid little pils. Not Live Oak solid b/c it was lacking some spice & bite but still pretty darn good and drinkable.

What an amazing beer! The aroma is uber pungent with huge grassy notes. The first sip is pure delicious sweet grass. About mid way through the bottle, bitter comes to the back of the mouth. Yes, it is a refreshing... well, sipper beer. The hop aroma on this one reminds me of the authentic pilsners that I have had over in Czech.

Drank on tap at the Flying Saucer in Addison.
The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is grassy and earthy hops with some flowery notes. The flavor is grapes and biscuit malt but it is very bitter. The bitterness is well above what I expect in a pilsener and detracts from the overall flavor of the beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The bitterness in this beer needs to be toned way down before I can enjoy it.

(draught at addison saucer) clear medium yellow, lingering head of foam. Nose of oranges, alcohol, earthy hop bite. Taste is alcoholic, earthy, biscuit, stale orange, odd unsweetened honey notes. A bit heavy on carbonation. Not a favorite of mine.

Yellow with a white head. Nose is clean hops, oranges, light spice in the back. Very nice on the palate, great sweet hop flavor with a clean and refreshing finish.

Wow. What a huge disappointment. I am not sure what they were thinking with this. Terribly unbalanced with hops dominating to an arresting degree.
