COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the classic Bohemian Pilsner style. The renowned Saaz hops of the Czech Republic allow this honey colored lager to be well hopped while maintaining an elegant balance.

5oz on tap at Smoky Mountain in Gatlinburg. Some corn, bready malt, nice mild bready pilsnery pepperiness up front. Mild sulfuric. Sort of doughy. Moderate sweet taste, lighter bitter. Medium body. Light carbonation. Kind of soft. Clear golden color. Virtually no head. An alright, kind of sweet and malty pilsner. Could use more carbonation too. Pilsner character is definitely there, though.

A little bit of a medicine taste but it may be that I just haven’t had saaz hops in a while.

gold to light amber color; musty aroma; light, grainy malt flavor; a light, easy drinking beer

Brewery sample. Fairly standard pilsner. Actually nice and refreshing with a little bitterness to keep it interesting. Not boring, nice.

Bottle. Gold in color. Not bad but not great. Aroma is bread and hay. Taste was light and not as bitter as some pilsners.

Draft - this must be the beer the bartender reccomends for those who like light beers. Slight corn flavor.

Pours deep gold and clear with some white froth. Light flower hops and malts on the nose. Flavor is similar. Light malt richness. Pretty drinkable and not the most hop flavor I have experienced in a pilsner but hey.

Bottle. Sweet grainy malt aroma. Clear brassy color with a moderate white head. Sweet grainy malt, and light sweet grass/hay flavor. Light body, soft - almost flat- carbonation.

probstblueribbon (3273) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2012
12 fl oz bottle via my bro, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear amber with a fair off-white head. Aroma: Strange, hard to describe, almost smoky and soupy quality?, some green, grassy, peppery hops, burnt something, fusel oils/solvent, slightly fruity, what a mess. Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence that is somewhat pillowy, silky. Flav.: Strong grain/biscuit, nice green, grassy, peppery hops, a bit herbaceous, a little yeast?, not as messed up as the nose (thankfully), not too bad; dry with good bitterness and a decent biscuit and noble hop finish.

At least it isn’t infected...
