COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Authentic Saaz hops from the Czech Republic give our Pilsener just the right amount of spicy floral aroma. With a crisp, refreshing malt backbone and lightly spiced hops, its a taste of the Bohemian life.

In the bottle. Pours standard yellow, but with disturbingly large bubbles. Was this force carbonated with CO3? Ha, ha, a little chemist joke there. Head leaves us on time. Maybe its early. Definitely lacks a nose. The hops are good and strong. Bitterness leaps forward and clings to your tongue throughout the beer. Tangy. This could use a little more balance with some more malt body. All things considered, I think that New Ulm has won the Minnesota War of Pilsners. Check out Schells instead. Or stick to the exquisite Summit Hefe.

This pilsner pured a somewhat unfiltered golden amber color with a nice fizzy white head. The aroma was a nice combination of citrusy hops and a touch of flowers. The mouthfeel was very nice... Light and flavorful...on the malty side; a beer that I can pretty much drink all night.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2004
Clear light amber with a huge frothy white head. Nice floral, somewhat earthy aroma of citrus, toasted bread, and honey. Medium light watery palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. Refreshing. Nice flavor that starts sweet with honey, citrus and bread. Finishes slightly bitter with a nice earthiness and light pine notes. Slightly metallic. A good everyday beer.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2004
Light golden colour. Very nice fruity (lemon) and grainy aroma. Flavour is nice too but the finish doesn't quite meet the promising expectations. Not exactly a "classic" Bohemian Pilsener (probably due to the domestic hops), but nonetheless a very decent beer.

color is medium golden, pretty clear, thin white head. aroma is pretty hoppy...earthy. a very well-balanced beer. fair amount of hops and malts apparent in the flavor...surprisingly good.

Wasn't sure what to ecpect from this one. Pleasantly surprised though. Good Czech style hops on the nose. A bit heavier that I would have prefered but it turns out to be quite nice...

This was a great pilsner.It had a nice smooth taste that was sweet. Touches of honey that sat nicely in the palate. If your a big pilsner fan. This might be your beer.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Clear, golden color, full fluffy white head, softly settling. Aroma, soft, smooth with floral notes, slightly honeyish, rather pleasant, this. Taste: nice hoppiness on the palate, tasty and brisk, fading , then roundly drying out in the finish. Light bodied, sweet and hoppy, crisp and rewarding. Drinks down nice and refreshingly, always nice to have this around when you're in the pilsner mood.

Dry, crisp and a tad sweet. Grainy aroma. Not much can be said about this. Decent.

Light golden look with little head and some lacing. Had a slight grainy/bready smell. A light acidic taste and after-taste
