COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Czech-style pilsner is brewed with 100% pilsner malt and a blend of old and new world hops. Dry-hopping adds a hop accent to the nose, while cold fermentation with a a classic Czech lager yeast emphasizes the fresh grainy flavor of the malt and spiciness of the kettle hops. This beer provides plenty of flavor and nuance to be enjoyed on its own, but is also simple enough to get out of the way when food and/or conversation is the focus. We could drink it everyday!

Bomber pours a slightly hazy golden/orange with a very large white head. Aroma of pils malt, mild grassy hops, with a touch of citrus. Taste of malt with some lightly bitter hops on the finish. Kinda boring, not a lot of flavor lacking any crispness.

Bottle shared by a kind soul at Beer Keyaki. A cloudy light gold pour with a slight white head. An earthy bitter slightly spicy taste that makes for quite a good table beer - great label. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On Draught
Pours a pale golden with a big fluffy white head and lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is fruity and hop forward, almost oddly fruity, but clean & citrusy... very inviting.

The flavor is very citrusy & fairly dry. The bitterness is a touch on the light side for Pilsner, I usually dig a touch more sting than this one offers, but it’s a pleasant light bitterness for sure. The minerallity is spot on and it’s a very clean tasting beer.
Totally enjoyable.

superspak (2411) - Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2014
22 ounce bottle into lager glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of hops, pale malt, and earth yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of earthy herbal/pepper bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of pale malt, hops, and earthy yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Czech pils style. All around good balance of pale malt, spicy hops, and earth yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle @ home. Gusher. Pours a pale yellow appearance with a thin off white head. Poor carbonation after the geyser opening. Aroma is full of DMS. Complete cream corn and stewed cauliflower. Shit. Twangy, chewy grainy flavor. Fairly Dry. Floral hoppy flavor. Unfortunately, the flavor is also completely overrun with DMS and corn. Gross and ridiculously overpriced which means I’m not in the market for a re-rate any time soon.
