Nice bohemian pils aroma. Pours golden yellow. Stong but nicely balanced with a sweet start and a nice bitter dry finish. Overall a nice version of a classic style

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with my Dad and Uncle Mark to celebrate the life of my Mom-Mom. Pours a shimmery, bubbled copper with a one-finger, sturdy, lacy off-white head. Aroma of fresh pressed grapes, cut grass, banana, sweet corn, honey, and slight lemon zest. Medium to light bodied. The body is not very supportive, but the crisp, biting carbonation makes up for the thinness. Sweet, slightly bitter palate. Hints of grapes and hay in the flavor. Finishes with a sugary-sweet dryness, similar to ginger ale. Very cool style and an even cooler beer.

Bottled sample at the public house. Straw colour. Very boozy. Pins enters are my favorite but could appreciate this beer

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aromas of honey, bread, and grass. Clear gold with a fairly lasting, white head. Dry, savory, and with a perceptible strength, flavors are nutty and somewhat floral and grassy. Medium-full bodied with decent carbonation and a somewhat apricot-like, sticky finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2012 The biggest Pilsner I’ve ever had, and possibly the best (coincidence, right?). Pours slightly copper, big head. Nose is much bigger than a pilsner typically, very hoppy. It’s then got the super thin body of a pils (well at least as this as possible at 9%) and a big pile of hops. Describing this as a lagered imperial IPA might help.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden color with aroma of honey and creamy butter. Taste is light for such high alcohol content. Flavor of mango, banana and grass. Overall, an enjoyable beer.

On tap, pours a very nice golden yellow, with thin tight head and nice lacing. Nose is hops, malt, mild bread yeast. Crisp bright light taste, malts and yeast mildly balanced with a nice bitter hop bite. quick clean finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle dated 9/14/12 popped when uncorked. Pours a clear golden orange with big foamy white head and some spotty lacing. Smells like a pilsener. Aroma has lots of sweet malts, some bread, and honey. Tastes sweet with a slightly bitter finish with alcohol burn noticeable. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and only slight carbonation. Overall a bit of a disappointment. I’d rather have 3 500ml bottles of Eastern European strong lagers than this, given the same price.
