COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden hued beer features a full, hoppy palate in the classic Czech Pilsner style. Rare Noble hops from Europe produce a wonderful fragrant aroma. Albatross Lager is complex and full flavored, yet very quaffable.

Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2011
Draft. A hazy light golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has light notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with light notes of malt, leading to a lightly bitter finish. Plain, but nothing wrong.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 14, 2009
Tap at the brewpub: Very pale yellow effervescent pour. Nice saaz aroma- crisp, grassy with a light crackery malt background. Light body with a dry flavor. A bit thin with a mild crackery pilsner base followed by grassy/restrained saaz charcter. What’s present in this beer is good, there’s just not quite enough body nor bitterness. Solid though. Many of this places beers are underrated.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Blonde with light film of head. Slightly tannic grain aroma. Light dank, grainy flavor that is unsatisfying and becomes increasingly tannic-sour on the finish.
