Bottle. Deep golden hue, nice initial head, and brilliantly bubbly. Sweet starchy aroma. Drinks with a firm corn-malt base and adds in a spank of Bohemian hops that dominate the finish. Not as snappy as the best of this breed, but definitely drinkable. (#5427, 2/6/2014) Foxbush (2008) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2014
12 oz bottle from Whole Foods The pilsner poured a clear golden color with a small off white head that quickly dissipated. There was no lacing. The aroma was a grainy and grassy mixture. The aroma was fruity with apricots and malt. The taste was more complex with sweet fruit and grapefruit. The medium body pilsner had soft carbonation. A nice every day beer but it does not excite the senses. The finish had some acidity but no bitterness.

Not a favorite of mine, but Im a bit biased because i’m crazy for a good pilsner. All in all a great try for an american attempt at a czech style lager. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 21, 2014
12oz bottle in a sampler glass. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, floral hops, and light dough. Flavor the same. Average to light texture. Not bad but not the best style. jaygrant1387 (10) - - JAN 19, 2014
Good all around pilsner. Got a growler at Bottles in Mt Pleasant SC. Smooth beer great substitute for any domestic.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2016 Sampled on draft, this brew is a craft pilsner that takes the standard Czech pils flavor profile of sweet pale malt and Saaz hoppiness and adds a little spiciness to the mix. Soft floral aroma, pale malt, somewhat more bitter than usual for the style. not full bodied but fuller than your average pilsner. Finishes bitter and a bit dry, but clean and refreshing if you luck out with a good batch. Perhaps even some alcohol notes in the finish, which seems out of place for a pilsner. in my experience this brew can be a little hit and miss, but overall it’s a good local rendition of the style.

Bottle. Clear. Light honey color. Floral Saaz hops aroma with hints of hay, dough, and vanilla. Taste is hoppy for a pilsner but not overly so. A little spicy, peppermint perhaps, medium bitter finish. Well balanced and drinkable. nimbleprop (8297) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2013
12oz bottle pours a completely clear, slightly burnt gold with some frothy, lacing white head. Nose is has a lot of wet straw, malt, some metal, lemon, grass. Flavor has some sweet malt, almost a little light pineapple, grass, lemon, mild pepper, straw. Clean finish. Solid beer. penguinfinity (107) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle, a little more chilled than cellar but not cold. Smells all kinds of wonderful, but deceptively so. I think I’m smelling a darker beer. Pours pale yellow with a thin head that dissipates quickly. A little carbonated for my taste, covering up what could be a complex taste, but mostly finishes bitter. It looks like a cheap beer, smells like a great beer, and the taste is somewhere in the middle drowland (8629) - Georgia, USA - DEC 3, 2013
11/27/13. On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in downtown Asheville. Clear golden pour with a small off-white head. Light aroma, hints of spicy and grassy hops, some doughy malts. Malty flavor, doughy malts, pils malts, hints of spicy hops. Sweeter than expected. Not bad.
