2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly skunky with some horse blanket and mothballs. Too malty & not crisp or hoppy enough for the style. Tastes like a crappy central-European lager. Has some strange sweet notes - caramel, muted fruit flavors, cereal, etc. Tastes nothing like a proper Czech pils. Another clunker from BBC... other than the 2 or 3 decent stouts and porters that they make, this brewery has a history of disappointing me time and time again.
Tap at Noho brewpub. Clearish golden with light white lace. Smells like a diacetyl bomb. Flavor is grainy and buttery. Not drinkable. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2011
draft at Bubula’s in Provincetown. golden pour, medium carbonation. grassy & saaz driven aroma. Honey sweet maltiness. decent pilsner rocbyter (2119) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Grainy malt aroma. Lightly hazy golden color with a small white head. Light bitter beginning with a light sweet and bitter finish. thicksuds (449) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Solid beer, easy drinking, thirst quenching, nice pour, not as clear as I thought it would be, a little mellow for a Pils, I was expecting it to be a little sharper and more crisp, hops are a little dull to me, but all in all a good beer.

Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly to a thin leaving some lace. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Almost clear pale yellow/amber color. Nose is grassy hops. Flavor is sweet grass with light bitterness. Good pilsner. Their site puts the ABV at 5.5%. $4.50 for a 22oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA. minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Clear straw gold; thin head. Czech? Smells very German, Northern. Farmhousy Saaz hops; slightly dirty. Initially quite carbonated. Sweetness comes in at the back. Medium body, but the hops are lean. Not bad, but I would like this less sweet, a little hoppier, and maybe a little lighter. SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 7, 2010
22oz bottle. "Czech Pilsner" Pours a golden color with a small, white fluffy head that recedes leaving lacing and a thick foamy ring. Nose is grassy, toasted grains. Palate is refreshing with a slickness that is followed by a light sticky feeling. Flavor is grassy hops, toasty grains, a light biscuity note. thornecb (5883) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Bottled as Czech pilsner. Pours deep gold into a pilsner glass. White head recedes to hug rim. Honey and bread aromas. Off toasted nuts upfront turning to butterscotch and caramel in the lasting finish. JAXSON (604) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Bottle, thanks Cody. Pours a clear light orange with a small white head. Largely blank nose with some light grains and hops, certainly nothing off-putting though. Flavor is good, though I’m a sucker for this style. Very good balance between malt and hops, this comes off as fresh and bright, with a short, crisp finish. Super nice flavor here. Not as grassy as many Czech pils, but the balance and profile is superb. A lot of people will pass this one over as it’s not super exciting, but it’s quite well crafted.
