This beer is the closest I’ve found to an American brewery brewing a true czech style pilsner. They use true saaz hops, pilsner malts and yeast. The nose has a strong saaz aroma similar to Bernard but with a cleaner smell. The lacing is almost more distinct than Budvar and the taste is crisp and flavorful with a strong hop character though not overpowering the malts so a balance still exists. Truly a fine pilsner as recongnized by the world beer cup 2008

I can’t get enough of this one. HUB does a great job and the use of authentic Saaz make this a fine beer to taste. Truly a fine pilsner as recognized by the Silver Medal winner at world beer cup 2008

Tap at Hopworks. Aroma of grassy hops, a lovely complex bready graininess, slight dry, champagne-like fruitiness. Flavor has a juicy fruitiness with increasing grain complexity and a heap of bitterness from the hops. An in-your-face, but at the same time subtle and complex pils.

I really like this IPA. Big bottle, pours nicely with a good head and colour. Citrus tones and hops that are not overpowering but are assertive. Flavourful!

Can from brewolf...thanks Michael! - Pours straw yellow with a thin white head. Light doughy, spicy yeast, sweet pale grain, and a nice floral hoppiness. Taste is the same, with a very drying spiciness on the finish. A bit astringent, but clean and floral and sharp. Big carbonation, nice and fluffy.

Dark yellow pour, fading head with lacing left over. Aroma of hops and some malts. Clean and fresh, with a crisp bitter sweet taste. A very drinkable beer. Little bit of hops in the burp... great Czech example. Beauty!! thanks Lagerboy.
