Originating in the town of Plzen in the Czech Republic, within 4 years of its origination it was being brewed virtually world wide. Slow lagering at very cold temperatures produces this very drinkable Czech classic. We have attempted to stay very true to the style by using a strain of lager yeast from the Czech Republic, where our Saaz hops were harvested as well.

Draft in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a very, very light yellow-gold with a small white head - looks almost like a Mich Ultra with less carbonation. But the beer itself is pleasant. It has a nice grassy and slightly spicy hop character atop a bready, crackery pils malt. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a clean, refreshing mouthfeel. Simple, nice pils.

DiarmaidBHK (4189) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2014
Draft at brewpub. Pours golden with a thin white head. Has a bit of floral on the nose. Tastes perfumed on the tongue. Finishes clean. Not the typical pilsner vibe but tasty.

ContemplateBeer (1996) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 13, 2010
Aroma of lemon, saaz and wheat. Appearance is golden with foamy white head. Flavor matches the nose with some more hops and a little honey in the finish. Palate is lively and bubbly. Decent.

Tap at the brewpub. The body was deep gold with a white head. The aroma was bready with some bell peppers and perfume. The taste was spicy saaz with some bread and potatoes. A nice hops bite in the finish.

Rating 1078, on tap at the brewery. Listed on wall as "pilsner" and after speaking with the bartender he said that they once had a ’czech pilsner’ but eventually the ’czech’ was erased to make room for annother beer listed. Golden yellow, clear with no carbonation. Small, medium lasting white head that left good lacing. Nose is tart with sweetness of hops. Taste is light citrus with more malts and crisp hops. Nicely done with more kick that you would find in most pilsners. I actually suggested this to a friend who isnt a big fan of the hops thinking that it would be more subtle for him but even to my surprise it had more of a punch. Nicely done.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2007 From the tap, served in a pint glass. Poured a clear lager golden with a small foamy white that settled into a thin sudsy lacing. Aromas of sweet pale malts, light citrus, lemony, and softly spicy and grassy. Good carbonation and a crisp, dry, thin, smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Tastes of dryish grainy crackers, the malts are a bit thin, a light lemony honey flavor, and a dry, bitter spicy, leafy finish that cleanse the palate. Easy drinkability, pleasant enough, but with so many brewpub pilseners out there, I thought this was slightly above average at best, tasty, refreshing, just not first rate.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured light golden with a white head. Aroma had some faint citrus hops. Other than that it was very non offensive because there was no real smell. Used enough malt to give it a slight malt taste when you drink it. Slight citrus flavor with a light body.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 16, 2006
Tasted 10/14 from the brew pub. Sample number 5. Pale golden and filtered. Ring of white head. Sweet bready nose. Corny, grainy, good pils! True example with the dry spicy Saaz finish.

wxman (1744) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2006
Pours a bright golden color with a big fluffy white head. Not much aroma. Taste is crisp and clean; some sweet pale malt and just enough Saaz hop bitterness. Very refreshing.
