2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at GABF 2013. Strong DMS / cabbage aroma with a strangely cinnamon-like "red hot" candy note. Strong sourdough bread yeast mustiness and an armpit sweat stink with toaster oven-burnt bread crumbs and an sourkraut finish. Grainy, sour, acidic, dirty with a thin body. Low sweetness and low but grating bitterness. A shameful mess of a pilsner.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, no BBD on bottle. Pours a medium clear golden with a scant white head. Aroma is grainy with lightly sulfurous undertones. Flavour is grainy and sweet with a light greenstick bitterness and some metal in the finish. I’m not sure whether a lack of freshness may be skewing things here, but I do not see how this beer could have won any awards. It wasn’t good.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I was reading the newest issue of Brew and the cover photo had me craving a light beer so I picked up a sixer of Czech on the way home. It’s a softly lit beer with a light head and hoppy accents. I’m not a huge pilsner fan so my opinion of the beer was already a bit skewed before even raising it to my lips. Still, what I find most notable about this beer is that it makes me thirsty FOR it. I’m not particularly attracted to the flavors but something about its body likely won’t allow it to reach a room temperature - I keep reaching out.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ The Grizzly Bar in Roscoe, MT
Pours a clear gold color, nice white head and nice lacing. The nose is biscuity with some husk, light alcohol and hops. The flavor is full bodied and malty. Lots of crisp hops. Clean, lacking the snappy hops in the tail but quite malty for a lager.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Foster & Logan’s in Red Lodge, MT on 7/17/07. Light gold pour under a quickly diminishing white head. Grainy with a light hops in the aroma. Tastes pretty malty, and there is a bit of stickiness on the palate. Lacks the clean bitterness of a good Pils, making me wonder if it was actually brewed with an ale yeast. Not a bad beer, but just no what I’m looking for in this style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draught at Sam’s Tap Room, next to the brewpub in Red Lodge, Montana. Pours a clear golden blonde brew with a thick white head that quickly dissolves to a white ring. Good sticky lacing on glass edge. Aroma of sweet light roasted malt, flowery hops with a hint of apple. Taste is lightly carbonated, light bodied with some flavors of apple bread, and a hint of herbal hops. Palate is light, crisp with a chalky texture. Finish is crisp, clean cut with a slight herbal aftertaste. A decent summer light beer.
