12oz bottle: Nutty yellow pour with a soft white head that falls quickly into a thin film on top. Hay, caramel and honey malts are blended nicely with a healthy dose of grassy hops in the aroma. The balance continues to the body where more honey and caramel notes come forth, in harmony with the mildly bitter hops. Very drinkable and a pretty darn good example of the style.

Draft. Tastes like a regular old pils,not a whole lot to distinguish it from the rest of the pack.

Now I know this beer should take a while to pour but somehow the folks at Zum want to serve it the American way. Regardless, the one inch head doesnt stay for long. There’s a nice honey and grassy aroma. The flavor has a nice crispness, almost bordering on sweet but this beer is too well made to taste crappy. The fresh hop flavor is quite tasty.

Big body pilsner! Golden, sweet honey hints. Bitter, but beautiful. On tap at BURP CASTLE!

Green bottle 330 ml
Appearance : Clear golden look with fine carbonation , medium-large snowy with noisy bubble white top. Good lace produced.4-
Nose : Soapy mineral aroma with hint of spice , softer sweet malts at bottom. 6-
Flavour/Palate : Bitter with hint of black pepper. Soft malt is shown but here is secondary , bitter , green hopping. Quiet aggressive for European sample. With time you might forget effect of travel and green bottle to enjoy it. For me I prefer softer more balanced lagers of Bohemia than this rougher northern brother. For me this brew lacked harmony

A nice blend of hops with a slight taste of grain. The aftertaste is not too great, it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. Overall an alright import.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Bottle. Pours light yellow with some yeasty cloudiness and a tight white head. The aroma has some grains, freshly-cut hay, lemon zest, and distant white bread, maybe a stray floral honey note. The flavor is raw grain, hay, lemon zest, and very distant sulfur. The finish is pretty dry, but without much distinct flavor. Aftertaste is a bit papery. All in all, a decent pils.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 29, 2007
This bottle is labeled Premium Bavarian Beer Pilsner Style. The bottle in the pic just says Pilsner. This brew pours a slightly tawnied pale yellow w/ a medium sized, spattered creamy white froth. Head retention is minimal but receds leaving a full canopy and a sticky white lace. Aromas of aged malts and herbs. Medium nectar w/ mellow residual effers creating an almost creamy texture w/ a tad of cotton fiber. Definately European w/ a musty aged malt character accompanied by a moderate hop citrus rind spice. The finish is bittered nicely leaving mild asprin burn on the palate.
