erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 10, 2006
Pours a light gold with a fluffy lasting white head. Aroma is grassy, biscuity, with a spicy hop character. The body is light but mouth-filling from the CO2. The flavors are fairly clean with a pleasant hop character, but a bit more diacetyl than I might expect from the style, but certainly not offensive. Finished nice and dry. Good Pils.

This is a fine beer, wasted on those here who do not really like or understand Bohemian pilsner. Great sweet apple notes hemmed in with the good, flinty Czech hop finish. The malt is nice and bold, rich, then lean, then fruity, then austere, but the hops do such an incredibly excellent job. You know, the hops act a lot like those in Rochefort, believe it or not. A bit less complex than the Great Herold. It remains, however, a beer that I will return to again and again.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2007
Pours gold-amber with a one-finger white head. Very grainy, grassy aroma with a hint of underlying sweetness and a touch of clove. Pale malt in the flavor, along with a medium dose of Saaz. The hop flavor seems to be spread out over the entire sip instead of showing itself at the end. The result is a lack of the...snappiness that I think a great pils should have. Drinkable, though, and the brown bottle is definitely a plus.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2007
12 ounce bottle. Shaker glass. Golden with a thin head. Aroma was grainy with a hint of malt. The flavor was light and hoppy with some bitterness and a touch of malt. Crisp and drinkable.

I had this one on a hot evening in July. That made the beer better I suspect. There wasn’t as much of that dirty pilsner aftertaste that I normally get. It was a nice refresher with a name I couldn’t pronounce.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Pours straw with white head. Flavor is sweet malt with Saaz hops, nicely balanced. Also some fruit and bread mixed in. Very nice and quaffable. Well Done.

Parrothead (298) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2007
Pours a honey-golden color with a big, rocky white head. The great Saaz hops come through in the nose. A nice touch of malt sweetness balanced by the Saaz - a perfect blend for a Bohemian Pilsener. JK is right - a bigger sip really lets the flavors of the malt and hops shine.

cfranz (296) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 8, 2006
Looks nice when poured - hazy straw yellow, white head. Very grassy smell - hint of banana. This beer has a nice texture, but tends to be a bit bitter, earthy and hoppy. Not bad, and I am not a great fan of the style, but I still had some difficulty finishing this six-pack.

Odyn (268) - New York, USA - MAY 5, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 Lovely amber-gold color, though very little aroma. Rich flavor with a little bite, though much smoother than other Czech pilsners. Finishes fairly clean, though does leave a slight sweetness

DJC (238) - USA - DEC 20, 2006
Pale amber body, with a quickly-disappearing head. Thin lacing. Mild toffee, malt, and hops aroma. Flavor is nicely balanced between the malts and hops, with a nice bitterness lingering in the end. If you’re a fan of this style, then you’ll probably like this beer.
