12oz boudeille bottled06/2016 (import bb07/2017 though?). - Bohemian Saaz juice recipe goes watery macro lager on unpresuming malt cracker base. - Thinner yellow fizz pour. Hay cracker, spelt biscuit in water with a minor splash of lemon. "Correct" and crisp bitterness, but quite forgettable and thin overall. Down-to-earth bravery: At least its not another crafty India Pale Lager...

This Pilsner lager pours a transparent yellow gold hue with a steady white head and lots of fresh lacing. The aroma is grassy Saaz hops, grainy malt, with also a unique fruity hop note. Flavor is fresh and delicious pale malt, some sweetness, with both floral and herbal hop notes Medium-bodied and smooth. I found this preferable to the "Nooner Pilsner" also released by Sierra Nevada. Tastes like summer!

Gets the job done well enough on a hot summer day. Tropical fruit aroma. Very light lemony hops taste but mainly lager malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drpimento (3530) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Not too bad, but a bit too sweet for me. Aroma is grain, grass, crackers. Flavors similar to nose, more sweet than bitter. Thank goodness sufficient carbonation. Sweet finish.

Bottle into a pilsener glass. Pours a watery pale yellow with a small white head that disappears quickly. No appreciable nose, and a very watery flavor. Yuck.

12 oz off bottle purchased as part of a beers of summer 9 pack at the World Market in Kansas City, Missouri. PKGD 03/30/16 stamped on back label. The pour is a clear golden with a lasting one inch frothy white head and a bunch of very fine carbonation bubbles rising to the surface. The aroma is fresh hay, herbal Saaz hops and natural cracker grain. Clean nose. The taste is a nice blend of the cracker, hay malt grain and the bright Saaz floral herbal hops. Crisp flavor. The palate is light to medium bodied with active carbonation and grain mineral finish. Easy drinking, tasty.

theOptimator (385) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Aroma is clean crisp spicy noble hops with mild sweet malt. Appearance is crystal clear golden with medium frothy white head. Taste is aroma and bittering hop forward. Fresh and spicy noble hop aromas with a clean sharp bitterness followed by light smooth malt. Hint of tart lemon lingers. Palate is crisp and refreshing. Overall an excellent Pils. Could use a more PIlsener malt flavor and depth but the hopping is very nice. An great Pils at a very nice price.

axl (824) - Lund, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2016
Draft. Clear golden with white head. Aroma is citrus, grass, light fruitiness and light crisp malts. Taste is similar but with more emphasis on fruity and grassy botes, lighter citrus and a slight sweet malty touch in the finish. Crisp medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation and light fruity and citrus aftertaste.

colui72 (950) - HONG KONG - JUN 11, 2016
Clear golden with a large creamy head. Almost no aroma, like commercial lagers. Not in the palate, crisp and refreshing, bitter and malty. Nothing else. Just a regular slightly better than a macro lager.

Bottle. Clear yellow with large foamy white head, almost no aroma, medium carbonation, lightly bitter malty taste, thin body, abrupt finish with malt aftertaste. Nice but not a great Pilsner.
