lemongrass and slight hop aroma, cloudy pale yellow and very heavily carbonated, lots of sticky resinous hops with hints of lemon, overall overly hopped

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a white soapy looking head. Aroma is perfect for a pilsner, light malty with a grassy smell to it. Taste is light and refreshing, with a nice hop balance.

Braudog (6342) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Somewhat hazy for a pilsner, but with the classic monster sticky, sudsy, foamy head. Beautiful czechy aroma. Similarly good flavors here ... lightly cerealed, but with good hoppy base. Among the better American pilsners I’ve tried. Job well done, if maybe a bit thin. Previous negative raters: you’re dorks.

golden, lacey wheite head. clean malt and mild herbal/grassy hop aroma. floury, biscuity malt flavour is sweet and dominat, hops come in later and in not quite enough force.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2004
Malty, hoppy and citrusy. Amber, with a cream head. Quite malty at first for a pilsner, some hoppiness shyly presents itself. Medium bodied, clean. Good, but more is expected from these guys. Thanks radiomgb!

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 21, 2004
Aroma consisted of lighter sweet malt, followed by soft hoppy aroma. Cloudy gold with white head. Clean medium bodied, slightly on maltier side despite claim of 40 IBU. Rather average pils. Hops do show up but sadly to late to save the day.

Gold color, hazy. Aroma of lighter malts and hops. Pretty nice balance. Smooth lighter body. A decent pils.

Cloudy pale yellow w/ some sediment. White head. Grassy & biscuity aroma. Light, somewhat grainy feel. Clean biscuity malt flavour w/ a light fruitiness & grassy bitterness. Somewhat dry, moderately bitter finish.

Poured a clear gold body with an average sized white head. Aroma is hops and a mild sweet citrus aroma. taste is sweet citrus, hoppy bitterness. Nice mouthfeel, with a really interesting afterteste. Thanks Jeff!

Deeply hazy yellow hue. Grassy, grapefruity, bready aroma…a little odd with that grapefruit in there. Accent on the palate is towards grapefruit, with a slightly toasted note as well. Too much fruitiness from top-fermentation and it doesn’t feel smooth enough either. A lager yeast would be recommended for next time (note: the bottle I had said it was Pacman yeast...I can’t say I tasted this but there were too many signs of top-fermentation and lack of lagering to ignore).
