Nice light gold color with the slightest bit of haze in the body. Head is white and foamy. Smells of sourdough bread, crackers and crisp hops. Crisp and biting on the back end. There's some brightness on the midpalate, the lightest bit of citrus. Tastes like an awesome Czech Pils.

On tap at flying goat

A: yellow straw with excellent clarity and spotty lace.
S: grain, slightest of old world hops. Vert subtle overall.
T: sweet grain and bitty touches of tannin. A little estery.
M: thin with smooth carb. This is spot on.
O: good example of the style. Seems a hare dry on the flavor, but otherwise good pilsner.

Served in a flared pokal at Bliss.

Back for another Bliss tasting after taking a week off for recovery/reflection from the Accidental Highway to Hell Tour. Good to be back, especially when the first beer on the docket is a new one all-around. It pours a clear pale peach-straw (not really peach, more like the controversially-named Flesh crayon from back in the day) topped by over a finger of bright white foam. The nose comprises white bread, cooked rice, light grass, light flowers, and musty mineral water. The rice really packs quite the punch. The taste brings in more of the same, with a touch of sulfur (or something like that) coming through, almost like the hard water somehow got a lot harder. Shit, I probably didn't explain that properly, but it's all I can come up with at the moment. Suffice it to say it didn't sit too well on my tongue. The body is pretty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a kinda creamy feel. Overall, an okay pils, though something about it (I'm guessing the malts?) just didn't sit right with me all the way through. Just not a fan, myself.

A: Very nice looking pils here.. golden yellow body witha white pillow like head, and all around nice retention.

S: Very crisp and clean like pils should be...earthy and bready, but also some hop bitterness.

T: Breaded malt taste and some sweetness, with the hop bitterness in the finish.. classic czech pils, well done.

M: Light to medium body with medium carb.. clean and crisp, very refreshing.

O: I'm impressed, very nice czech pils its clean, crisp, and will drink a few more in the future.

D: Overall a pretty decent beer, good flavors and feel, a nice session beer.

In a pilsner glass the beer was a golden color. The head was white, medium-sized, and left a bit of lace. Pretty carbonation.

Sweet, bready aroma. Grassy, outdoors hops.

Bready taste followed by grassy hops, with some late citrus hops.

A crisp,refreshing beer.

Nice pilsner.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip. No freshness info, but a new arrival this week in a date-conscious bottle shop.

A: Yellow, very slightly cloudy; white head with large bubbles that settles gradually and leaves very sparse lacing.

S: Crisp, fresh crackers; some sweetness, slightly herbal.

T: Crisp, momentary lemony sweetness, quickly followed by growing and lingering bitterness.

M: Light/medium bodied, medium carbonation; creamy and smooth, with refreshing finish.

O: Crisp and clean, refreshing. Bitter enough.

Review from notes at World of Beer - Fort Myers on 11/3/11.

Poured on draft into a Brooklyn pilsner glass.

Appearance: Pours a light/medium gold with a 1/finger foamy snow white head. Excellent lacing.

Smell: Typical Czech pilsener aroma. Sweet bready notes with a touch of florals and sweet fruit.

Taste: Pale malt and bready notes up front followed by bitter grassy hops in the middle before ending with bitter citrus and a light bready sweetness at the finish. Aftertaste is bittersweet.

Mouthfeel: Light-to-medium-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation.

Drinkability: Very good drinkability. Goes down smooth.

Overall: Good beer overall. Not my favorite Czech pilsener, but it's worth a try.

I like a well made sturdy pilsner and this fits the bill,Iam not sure if I have had the Liberty hop variety yet.Poured into a pilsner a clear light to medium golden with thinner but well put together white head that lasted for quite awhile.Freshly baked crispy bread malt aromas along with leafy/herbal hops in the nose,the malt aroms are very fresh and appetizing.Crisp and "hefty" malt aromas at the onset,not as delicate as most pilsners,a healthy dose of leafy hops in the finish.This is a big pilsner,some may say to big...not me.I think it would pair great shellfish.

Bottled on 9/23/11

Extremely light in color and body. Pleasant mouthfilling carbonation with a crisp edge. A lemony flavor greets the tongue. Fragrant without the perfume. Hops provide just enough bitterness. The whole thing is so restrained yet intriguing. Nice to look at with a proper head and lacing down the glass. Goes down all too easily.

A more delicate beer than I've ever encountered from Rogue. A good example of the style without the excessive bitterness of some.

From a 22oz bottle
A: Light yellow but very impressive head- a solid two fingers that keeps lingering.
S: Pilsners never do much for me here, but there is a nice hop note that comes through on top of the cereal/corn.
T: Very nice, with light grain/florals followed by a noticeable lingering bitter hop finish at the end.
M: Light-bodied; feels a bit off towards the end.
O: One of the better pilsners I've had. I think I've not liked them in the past because the hops don't shine through enough, and they certainly do here.

Pours a nice clear solar yellow with a fairly thick white head - doesn’t do much for me, but give it a break, it is a pils and I prefer dark beers. Malty, yeasty, sunny flavor has a subtle note of pear. Flavor is malty with a strong hoppy edge, a fair amount of bitterness, a metallic tang and a whisper of fruit. Texture is smooth, average-bodied and fairly fizzy. Pilsners aren’t my favorite, but this one is fine.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pilsner glass. Had a pale yellow color and a clear consistency. There was an inch and a half of creamy, long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: Smelled of hops, malt, grain, and something that sort smelled like corn.

T: Tasted of malt, a bit of hops, a grainy quality and that same corn component. While this last element (the corn) was not the greatest, this is a straightforward, solid flavor.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Light-bodied.

O: This is a generally likable and drinkable beer.
