This is an outstanding domestic version of a Czech classic. Really excellent grassy hop aromas and crisp pilsner malt on the nose. The palate is smooth and round with a wonderful pilsner malt flavor. This one finishes with more great pilsner malt up front, and ends with a slight herbal/grassy hop bite that lingers for a bit and fades. Great drinking beer, great beer to match with food. This is what you want and expect in a text book example of Czech pilsner. A perfect example of "less is more" in a beer. canary dog (780) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - JUN 27, 2015
The pour of this beer is special: thick, light orange swirls of activity slowly build a remarkably dense and high head of luscious beer foam. Before one even takes the first whiff, you know this is a high quality beer. The foam lasts....it stays around a while. Taste is full and thoroughly lager-like. Malt and subtle tea notes are present in the finish. Finish is slightly sweet, but not like a Munich beer. It is a touch more dry than that. Very clean and refreshing, yet flavorful. The main flaw of this beer is not anything with its execution, as it is a surprisingly fine beer; the main issue is that this isn’t really a pilsner, Bohemian or otherwise. This reminds me of a perfectly executed pre-prohibition lager recipe, or maybe a dortmunder. This beer is a great value, too, at $9 for a six of pounders. I will keep a six of this in my house at all times, at least in the warmer months. Great stuff. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2015
16 ounce can from Greenlife Grocery, Asheville. Pours golden with fine floating particles. Large frothy white head, good head retention and lacing. Aroma of doughy malt, grassy hops and a bit of apple. The taste is bready malt, apple, snappy grassy hops, mild notes of apple and caramel. Medium bodied, good balance, moderate lingering bitterness, crisp. hampale (118) - Jaffrey, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Currently enjoying the last of a recently purchased 6-pack of 16 oz. tall boys while hoping that this isn’t just a seasonal beer for Narragansett as I’d like to purchase another in the near future. Best I can say is that it does a good job of meeting the Commercial Description set forth by the brewer. Easy drinking with the taste I’d expect from this type of Pilsner. Despite its 5.2% ABV, it drinks in many ways like a session beer. Narragansett has a winner with this one. rjplumer (1180) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Light crisp pine aroma. Healthy foam two finger head that lingers. Lager like yellow color with a tinge of orange. Light bitterness with a light sour middle. Has a somewhat clean finish. Drinkable and I do like very much. Not complex and is light enough to be had in generous amounts.

Pours out a golden orange with a big durable head of white foam. Very clear, no haze or floaties. Spicy hop aromas and plenty of bread. The flavor is more of the save, only a little bit duller. Huge impressions of bread, and some odd but not-unpleasant Belgian-ish fruity flavors. Hints of honey as well. Smooth with a dry finish of lingering spicy hop. Honestly pleasantly surprised by this one, way better than I expect a cheap pilsner in a tallboy made by Narragansett should be. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUN 2, 2017
Poured into a lager glass, the appearance was a murky copper color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that held for a little bit and fell off at a good pace. Light stringy lace.
The aroma had some light lemon rind bitterness playing with a little bit of hop spice and then delicate biscuit/bready malt base playing tightly to signature a fine blend all around.
The flavor guided all of the previously mentioned aromatics together finely tuning the sweet to the spicy fairly nice. Aftertaste was moderately towards the biscuits and lemon. Finish was semi-smooth with a little bit of spice.
The palate was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt good as projected.
Overall, I didn’t mind this for me, but I did seem to think there was a bit more lemon than expected for the style. Kleg (401) - The Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Clear golden color with a fluffy white head and good retention. No lacing. Sweet and smooth/mellow but bittering hops. Not my favorite style. kevd193213 (992) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - JUN 28, 2014
16 Oz tall boy can. Fizzy, slightly cloudy yellow pour with a medium off white head. Aroma of pepper and yeast. Clean, crisp finish. Really solid pils at a great price. puboflyons (3488) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 16, 2014
From the one pint can. It pours a typical pale yellow color with a big, fizzy white head. The aroma is of grains, some light malts, and clean, crisp hops. Everything here reminds me of a traditional pilsener. Light to refreshing body. I wish it were summer! The taste has a modest grainy and malty character up front and then a clean, crisp hop finish. It is a pilsener through and through.
