All imported Pilsen malt and hopped using a revived Czech technique. This summer seasonal is lagered for six weeks, making it crisp, clean, soft and flavorful. Winner of the inaugural Virginia Beer Cup and the 2005 Star City Brewers’ Challenge Best of Show Award.

Sample on tap from the brewpub. More clear orange, some yellow color. Little off-white head. Smooth lighter carbonation. Dry finish. Bitter taste. Dots of lace. Peppery aroma. Solid pils.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2011
Reviewed from notes. Pours a golden straw color with a nice white head and a good deal of lacing. The nose brings some nice floral and herbal Noble hops and a bit of grain. The taste is a bit lighter overall but still brings some really nice hop flavors with a bit of light grain. Nice, crisp body with great carbonation. This is a really nice brew and probably the best I had here. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-26-2010

Proteus93 (66) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Golden straw pour, not really any head at all. Almost yellow. Clean, modest hops, grassy and earthy. Kinda fruity? Apricot? Grassy, noble hops? Quite full flavoured for the style. Very nice. Crisp, clean. A zip of carbonation, and an easy drinker - as they often are. Decent session beer.

Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 25, 2008
On tap at brewpub. Pale straw color. Nice bitter pils aroma with grainy notes. Beautiful balance between bitterness and maltiness in the taste. Best beer at South Street that night.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. I thought this was a very decent brewpub pilsner. Slightly hazy straw colour. Quite muted aroma but springs to life on the palate. Dry and nicely balanced with a mixture of biscuity malt and sharp hops. Clean and refreshing.

argo0 (13318) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Crystal clear straw body with fluffy white head. Aroma is medium sweet, biscuit/cereal, light herb/grassy. Taste is medium sweet, orange/her, some caramel, light apple. Mild bitterness for the style. Watery light body, light crispness.

From a growler- light and clear- nice head on tap, rather flat from the growler. Nice hoppy aroma, (appropriate for the style, this isn’t and IPA). The flavor is smooth and malty, I would prefer a little more bitterness, but not flawed. There is that South Street house flavor again- not unpleasant, but curious. Not yeast, since i’ve noticed it in ales and lagers- maybe a bittering of flavoring hop?

Golden yellow with a nice head. Smells slightly sweet. Taste is what threw me- this is a fantastic pils! Without a doubt, one of the best I have had (I’m not a huge fan of the style). Highly recommended for macro drinkers, because this is close enough, yet SO much better.
