heemer77 (5317) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2007
Deep gold body with a large off white head. The aroma has some nice notes of bread and earthy root vegetables like turnips. The taste is a little sharp with hints of raw potatoes and some apple core. There is a decent hoppy finish with a hint of orange marmalade. A nicely made pils with a light refreshing body.

faroeviking (10295) - FAROE ISLANDS - OCT 2, 2007
Bottle. Pours a deep golden colour with a medium white head leaving a good lacing. Malty aroma with some sweetness and breadiness. The flavour is a bit sweet with a good maltiness, bread, some bitterness and some grains. Dry bitterish bit sweet finish.

BelgianBeerGal (3932) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2007
33cl Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with small white head. Light nose that reminded me of cooking flour. Flavor was creamy/buttery. Suggest better Bohemians.

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2007
Compact white head on a clear golden body. Fairly light floury nose. Notice the hops mainly in the taste, fairly simple but true to style.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 30, 2007
bottled. slight mineral aroma, light texture, moderate bitterness but quite muted saaz character. as with most other czech beers, zatec bottled is nothing like having it fresh on tap

jeremytoni (3029) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2007
From a bottle poured golden with a fair amount of head. Nice flavor, a litttle bitter, with a good finish.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 25, 2007
Tasted 9/20/07. 500ml bottle. Filtered with a golden hue. White head. Fruity bready aromas. Apples and citrus nose. Light to medium bodied with a bright crisp smooth flavor. Good malt flavor but a tad soggy. Smooth brew. Not as dry as most Czech’s, but still nice. The effervescence is low, but widens as it warms. Nothing special, but tasty none the less.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2007
From the bottles this pours a bright golden body (holding it up top the light might account for the brightness) with some lazy bubbling and a foamy white head. It has an aroma of fresh bread with a light (not as in bright) floral/grassy body. It’s got a well rounded, malty body, tasting bready and slightly grainy. The light floral hopping in the flavor doesn’t seen serious enough for a Pilsener. Dry finish. A sessionable lager.

JPDIPSO (5865) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Golden color with a taller light cream colored, slowly diminishing head. Light floral hops mix with flour, dough, resin and a touch of white grapes. A toasted malt start with a mild herbal and dry floral hops infusion. Quite dry in the finish and linger with only a light sweet malt paste residue. reminds me of a dortmunder more than a pils of any kind.

3fourths (9274) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2011 Bottle. Clear solid golden yellow with a firm, frothy white head, about 1/2 inch thick. Nose of creamed grains, fluffy yeast, light corn, and a snappy, sharp resinous corn oil scent. Palate is smooth and frothy up front, then more firm and sharp in the back. Doughy corn and twangy grains tasted. Finishes extremely clean and elevating, with a light yeastiness and a cloudy, pillowy creamed grain flavor. Finishes better than it begins.
