Very well balanced beer. Poured a light amber with some fuzzy white head. Malty, but not overpoweringly so. A little sense of some hops, but they aren’t pronounced at all. Very very smooth sweet finish. I really enjoyed this beer and would definitely have another in the future.

DocLock (10689) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2004
Pours light amberish, with a great aroma of malt and hops. Solid, smooth, crisp mouthfeel, with some malt, hops, and toffee at the finish. A solid, complex pils.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2004
UPDATED: APR 12, 2004 Much maltier aroma then most pilsners I've come across. A bit darker, too. Sweet, light carmel malt flavor with a nice hop bitter. Kind of leaves me hanging there in the end a little bit, though. Weak finish and aftertaste. O.k. pils.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Tasted at the brewery. Nice aroma, not a subdued malt complex. Color is a pale brown and the flavor is a nice robust and calm malt flavor, some hints of caramel, made it a great addition to the meal. Nothing like good german eats.

jables (101) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2004
Dark gold to copper color with an inch of white head that dissipates to a thin sheet. Clingy lace. Aroma is sweet malt and grains. Tastes sweet with rock candy sugars and grains. Finish is dry. Pretty good pilsner, maybe a tad too sweet. Kind of boring but not offensive, not an everyday beer but interesting to try.

I had this draft and what a great example of a bohemian style pils. Nice caramel mal t aroma with some good saaz hop aroma. Excellent head that lasted and it had a clear nice amber color. A great mild caramel malt flavor followed by a very nice saaz hop flavor and bitterness. A classic rendition of the style! I also had this beer in the bottle version and it was not anywhere near as good as the draft version. I would rate the bottle a 3.0 overall.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Bottle: Medium amber hue with fizzy white head which disappears quickly to nothing more than a ring around the top, lacing was okay. The aroma is that of noble aromatic and bittering hops, malted barley, caramel, and citric nature (lemon and orange). Very floral nose. The taste has a acidic crispness due to fruity and bitter characteristics. There is a grainy, earthy, and a touch of smoky hints below the surface. Short finish with minor lingering bitterness. The mouthfeel is lively, crisp, and a bit chalky. A standard american pils, nothing special, but better than macro offerings.

DYCSoccer17 (3698) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Pours a clear copper which is darker than expected. Has an ENORMOUS white head. Aroma is quite similar to a Hefeweizen--mostly yeast with a banana hint. Smoky flavor like a campfire, burnt popcorn, bitter metallic tastes. Yeastly at the start. Mouthfeel is smooth. Very complex for the style.

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 5, 2003
(Bottle) Pours a light amber color with a large frothy head. I wish the beer tasted as good as it looked. It had kind of a sour taste.

3.4
LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Sweet malty aroma. A very slight hop presence in the nose and finish could use more. Golden colored with a decen head. Overall "good" I just wish it were a bit less "buttery".
