3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
.5 liter draft at the Gordon Biersch brewpub in downtown Kansas City. Pour is clear golden, not much of a white head. Pretty lacing as the glass goes down. Aroma of grainy earthy malt and fresh saaz hops. Taste is a nice mix between the grainy hay malt and saaz bitter hoppiness. Palate is medium to thin, prickly carbonation and a long grassy finish. Overall, a nice refreshing Pils that went well with the excellent chicked sandwich I had for lunch.

sampled at brewpub in kansas city Faint, lagerish aroma. Slightly hazy body with a little lace at the top of the glass. Not much head or lace. Stone smoked flavor. Unique. Not bad although a little thin. Decent; the smoked flavor is fun and unique.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Annapolis location--identified as "Czech Pilsner" rather than "Czech Lager". Let this one warm up a little. GB seems to serve things too cold. Once it does warm, the flavor really opens up. I loved it. Unusual, in that this beer almost seemed malt-focused, with the hops there only for their considerable bitterness, of both a piercing and blunt variety. I liked that feature, as it really served to highlight the star of the show, which was the malt. The malt was extraordinarily complex--the flavors were primarily that kind of fresh sweetness that I associate with some of my favorite pale lagers. There was a little corny taste in their for good measure. I found it superb.

Czech Style Pilsner. Why do I even bother with these? Oh yeah thats right to increase my ratio. Typical in every way and indistinguishable from all the others. Very easy to drink though. No need to keep trying to duplicate what the old masters have perfected. Be original and make something new!

Bottle from Total Wine in Roseville, CA. As Czech Style Pilsner. Golden color with an ok white head. Smells grainy. Rather thin, foamy carbonation, grain, lightly spicy hop. It’s ok. Finish is fairly bitter.

Poured golden with a trim white head from the tap in Tempe. Overloaded with the bitterness of hops along with notes of pepper. Nothing I would recommend, as I couldn’t even finish my sample.
