COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer may have a cheeky name, but donít be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beerís smooth character.

Got a sixer on a friendís recommendation, and I couldnít be more conflicted. Everyone other one has been highly drinkable or borderline poor. The diehards will say you canít get a good pils here, that the only place itís good enough and fresh enough is Eastern Europe. I wonít concede that theyíre right, even if this is a pint in their favor.

STYLE: Czech Pilsner

ABV: 5.2%

LOOK: Clear gold, easily one of the most transparent beverages Iíve ever seen. I wasnít able to generate a head, but it was interesting to see bubbles cling to the outside rather than rush up the middle, tornado style.

NOSE: Pizza dough, buttered corn stalks, unpopped popcorn.

MOUTH: Daring to be unimaginative. Canned vegetables, mostly corn water, which speaks more to the lack of freshness than the taste. I feel like I just drank a single blade of grass. Itís difficult to drink slowly, so thin and light. The style, I know. But there has to be more to do it for me. A little white pepper on the finish helps.

seymour (1591) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - APR 13, 2015
Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a nonic pint glass at Jedís party. Thanks for sharing. Clear straw colour with thin but persistent white foam. True-to-style Pilsener traits. Super grainy, hint of residual malt sweetness, subtle earthy and flowery hop aroma, somewhat less hoppy bitterness and flavour than most classic examples. Light body, average carbonation, nice mineral-water essence. Good, clean and crisp. A crowd-pleaser.

chinchill (2709) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2015
undated 12 oz bottle served in a pint glass (from Nov. 2011 notes). No style indicated on the label other than Fall "seasonal", so I was surprised to find the beer is like a strong pale ale or ESB rather than a marzen. Not surprised by the flavor, however, since there is plenty of earthy and spicy hop aroma. There also some citrus in the nose, but the flavor veers more towards the citrus side, and leaves a moderately bitter grapefruit aftertaste. A nice orange-amber with a lasting off-white head. O - a bold and flavorful Fall seasonal.

cervmagpt (325) - PORTUGAL - JAN 5, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 2C, adapted). Bottle 35 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: sweet malty background with some very faint floral notes. clean lager profile. APPEARANCE: light gold color and hazy. thin white head with below average retention. TASTE: semi-sweet malty background, less intense than the aroma. medium-low bitterness with a somewhat semi-dry finish. PALATE: light body with low carbonation. OVERALL: a pilsner made with aromatic hops but the aromas and flavors are not there (maybe old bottle?).

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Backlog rating on 8-24-2012 (Bottled on 01/18/2012) This beerís appearance is a small smooth white head that mostly diminishes, transparent yellow body, extremely fizzy, fast rising carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is grainy, malt, grass and floral hops. The flavor is lightly bitter, grassy hops, grainy, and malt. The mouthfeel of this beer is moderate carbonation and this is a light bodied beer. This beer is easy to drink, but the flavor did not leave me wanting this beer again. It is not a bad flavor, it just needs more of it.
