COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our take of the renowned Bohemian-style pale lager that you might find in Bavaria or the Czech Republic. Ours is a little more golden, rounder, and a little more malt driven than many other versions. The beer possesses strong hop character that is balanced by its rich, round, malty palate. Refreshing and balanced, this beer is a favorite of our winery friends during harvest. (1.014 BG, 5.0%, 38 IBU, 4 SRM)

Bottle courtesy of Max at a tasting at Andys the day after doing a tasting at Pauls. Pours a rather hazy gold with a thin white head. Crisp grain and a light bit of crackery yeast. Medium bodied, sweet and crisp. Nice crackery grain. Very crisp, light nuttiness, toast grain and crackers, grainy yeast. Tasty and super easy drinking.

I cannot seem to let myself dissect this one in the accustomed manner ... it just feels awkward for me to do so right now, at least concisely. I have enjoyed this one multiple times via bottle/tap, and it has never been less than stellar and wholesomely satisfying. This one evokes something for me that goes beyond tasting. Simultaneously complex/nuanced and brilliantly focused. An admitted lager fanatic ... this is one of my absolute favorite beers.

3fourths (9265) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2016 rating from draft and bottles, dozens and dozens. faint hazed gold with fluffy and rigid white head with infinitely lasting retention. minerallic calcite nose with pillowy and fluffy yeast, and the honey and butter-tinged biscuit pils malt gives it rigid and unwavering support for noble hop brightness, pungency and bitterness. exceptionally full and rich malt through and through. ridiculously quenching acid, musty and pungent hop aromatics, touches of lemon oil and citrus pith, perfectly-suited bitterness to the Moravian-like biscuit / honey malt sweetness... this is an astoundingly brilliant and delicious czech pilsner. I usually have some measure of doubt in my opinions of beer, but I stand fully behind this one: best lager ever made in America, no question. endlessly expressive and shapeshifting.

Nothing ever lasts. In 2016 its plain and a bit watery. Its still clean and somewhat savory but the aroma is just so limp now. Whats going on?

poured from bomber into glass. Pours a great clear straw color with a small head. Crisp and pristine with really good aromas of crackers, noble hops, and grains. Very good depth and very aromatic. Really good light body with a delicious crisp feel and flavors of crackers, biscuits and noble hops. This was a spot on pilsner. Wonderful lighter body and real crisp. It was a real good night capper.

Bottle served in a flare pilsner. Pours light yellow with orange hues. Has a light haze beneath a short-medium white top. Decent retention and solid lace. Bright aroma of lemon and herbal hops with a bit of bready malts. The flavor profile matches the nose to a tee. Light body, good carbonation, oily texture, and a crisp bitter finish. Reminds me of Victory Braumeister Pils.

wedgie9 (2663) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Tasted on 5/10/12 from a capped 22oz bomber bottle obtained in a trade with hannont. Pours lightly hazy yellow golden with an average white head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is pale cereal malt, with some spicy and herbal hops, simple, but very clean and balanced. The flavor is cereal and very light hay and bread malt moving to the spicy, herbal, and nicely bitter hops. The body is light with average carbonation and a long pleasantly bitter, spicy hops finish.

I tend to be more a dark beer person, but this surprised me. Flavorful, but smooth - without the bitter finish I find in a lot of pilsners.
