COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Bohemian style golden lager. A profuse maltiness, offsets the slight bitterness from the aromatic Saaz hops resulting in a complex, yet very smooth lager.

Amber Coloring. White Head. Sudsy, Grain...Dry Hops...Not Great....Not a Bad Pils I guess.. But Not Worthwhile to Find.

Light gold color with a thin head. Dry malt aroma. Fairly grainy and malty taste with a hint of hops. I would have done better to have it colder, but it’s fairly tasty.

A true Bohemian Pils this is not despite the commercial description. What it is is a damn fine American lawnmower lager. Pours a really nice golden with a white head of fine bubbles. Definite emphasis on malt and slightly sweet rounded out by a kiss of Saaz (the Schlitz reference is intentional, though this is a much cleaner beer with no apparent adjunct character). One of those brews that seems to jump down your throat even when served at proper Pilsener temperature.

nothing really overwelming about this beer. It’s good, but nothing that makes my booty shake like Carmen Electra’s. Mmmmm....Carmen.

Bottle Straw/golden poured with nice head that faded leaving slight lace. Slightly malty nose, not much else, bit of Saaz maybe. light bodied crisp beer. Flavor? some malt maybe a bit of hops in the finish, mostly bland...certainly not what I’d call a Bohemian Pilsener, but I suppose this is better than Budweiser.

Light amber body with a short-lived white head. Well-carbonated. Grainy, grassy aroma. Crisp hop flavor with perhaps a touch of paper bag astringency.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 10, 2004
Nice looking frothy wite medium sized head that is medium lasting with a cool golden colour. The nose has a bit of grains. Some malts. The taste is watery and thin but quite earthy and grainy. Not bad overall.

GermanBrews76 (678) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2003
golden straw body, decent carbonation. thin white head which disappeared quickly. Corn, cereal grains and dimethyl sulfide. Saaz hops for sure. Clean, crisp and refreshing. a bit of a citrucy hop bite at the end. A great summer session lager.

(bottle): Clear orange-yellow body with medium off-white head. Aroma is sharp grassy, then some malts -- caramle mostly. Taste starts with a pleasant sweetness that complements the strong but not overwhelming grassy bitterness that dominates this beer. Some floral flavor shows up as the beer warms. Medium body, a bit fuller than I'd expected.

I absolutely love this lager. It's beauty lies in its subtleties, which can easily be missed by those looking for the maltiest or hoppiest beer. A definite yeasty flavor permeates the solid malt body and little bitterness can be found. A session lager of the highest order.
