3.39/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Bright gold with a quickly disappearing head and a touch of carbonation.

Smell: Indistinct malts and hops. Basically, it smells like beer.

Taste: Hops and cereal malts.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a slight hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

The Verdict: Not bad. My descriptions may not sound exciting, but this is pretty much what a pils should be. Nothing above and beyond, but nothing to fuss about either. Just a good solid beer.

Got this one at the SLS in Cedar City

Pours a very nice clean/clear golden yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a two-finger foamy white head, with some very nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, nice little hop note. The taste is mostly malty, with some hop notes. Medium body, the finish is slightly dry and bitter. Overall a nice brew for a hot day, but would not buy again.

On tap at the Myrtle Beach location. Served in a pils glass. Was honey colored with a small white head. Smelled of pine and flowers and toast. Saaz hops are obvious when you take a sip. Bitter, spicey, maybe somewhere in there is some sweetness from malt, but I don't really detect any, just hops. Finishes very crisp and dry. Not a huge fan of czech pils, maybe is the saaz hops, but not a totally bad beer.

Clear golden colored beer with a middle sized puffy white colored head.

Smells malty with a flowery hop aroma. Soda cracker malt with noble hops somewhat grassy it also smells a little sweet.

Starts out mildly sweet and a little bitter. Slightly grassy this has a sharper hop bite than expected. and that is about it, sort of boring.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall an OK beer.

Drank a half-pint of this beer on tap at the 2007 North Market Microbrew Fest. The brewer himself was there, and this is what he recommended from their selection. Pours a clear, bright yellowish-gold with a fizzy white head. Pretty good retention. Taste and smell were clean and crisp, like a nice pilsener. Nothing remarkable. Balanced between a medium maltiness and a little hoppiness. Again, nothing stands out. Sharp mouthfeel, almost bitey. Overall, pretty easy to drink. When it's a little colder, it's nice and refreshing, but anyone looking for real complexity should look elsewhere.
