Tap. Clear yellow with a clean white head. Smells of sweet grain and lemon-y citrus. Flavor is lemon, grain, yeast and light hop spice. Crisp, clean light bodied. Not sweet or bitter, just balanced.
Sampled at GABF 2016 with Paul and Larry. Pours a light golden body with thin white lace. Mouthfeel is thin and crisp with notes of pale malt, herbal grassy flavor and soft spice. Gentle grains as well. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAY 31, 2015

At Copper Kettle Brewery with Stephen. Pours yellow piss. Aroma is raw malt, malty rye notes. Taste is malty rye and malt, raw rye, chalky sweet, light earthy hops. Pretty nice. Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pour is a beautiful golden color with a frothy white head and great lacing. Crackery, straw, spicy hoppy, biscuity, cereal, snappy, and lightly floral aroma. Taste is clean - light chalk, crackers, grass, biscuit, honey, straw, a touch of spiciness on the backend. Medium body with crisp carbonation. Super clean and refreshing. I could see myself pounding pints of this in the summer time. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 9, 2013
On tap @ Copper Kettle. Mostly clear golden yellow pour with a white head. Lemon cleaner aroma. Sour apples, water, cracker, and paper. Meh. Flavor is grainy, lemony, and tart. Apple, solvent, and paper. Kind of watery flavor and mouthfeel. Dry cracker notes, too. Meh.

Draft at taproom. Pours yellow with a thin white head. Bit. Inch on the nose. Crisp and clean and tight on the tongue. Finishes clean with a little hop finish. Solid but only solid. NachlamSie (3483) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2015 18 oz pilsner glass at the brewery. I thought this was a very impressive pilsner and I share threefourth’s opinion after looking at the low scores. Right from a few sniffs I got crisp, grassy, pungently dry hops with a clean, cracker background. The palate is spritzy and medium bodied with purposeful hop character. Plenty of dry, clean wooden and grassy bite with an immaculate malt flavor bringing dough and crackers to mind. I would put this easily in my top 5 pilsners. Glad to have the source close by.

Heard this was back on tap so I had to get me some more. Looks like they changed the name to Hop Czech. I am convinced this is among the best pilsners I’ve ever had and certainly my favorite from Colorado. It’s got incredible hop depth in aroma and flavor, the body is bubbly and refreshing, and it’s immaculately clean. So crisp, so flavorful, so incredibly well executed. This is a top notch pilsner, folks.
On tap at Copper Kettle. Light yellow color, looks good. Smell is a little bit of mineral and earth and I think hops? Flavor definitely has a mild hint of hops and is very refreshing. Overall I enjoyed this beer quite a bit and would order it again any time I see it on tap at Copper Kettle.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear yellow/slightly orange with white head, aroma brought notes of spicy and floral hops, some sweet biscuit, cracker and bready notes, touch of earthy, grain, and nice grassy notes. Taste is nice spicy hops, some floral and grassy notes go into sweet honey and biscuit, bready grains, some slight earth and bitter grain, finishing fairly dry and clean. Pretty nice.
