This bottle did not taste at all as I had remembered early tastings. Maybe a bad bottle?

Appearance is good and light. Nose is...well, not there. Having just tasted a real Czech pilsner, I missed the heft. Same for the taste as well, regretably. I am wanting to like this as much as I remember it, but no amount of wistfulness can bring back the remembered taste tonight. Sigh.

It feels thin in the mouth. If "drinkability" means the ability to toss down one after the other, this sucker is drinkable--I just don't WANT to drink one after the other.

On tap at the brew pub, seved in a tall pilsner glass, light golden color with a solid white head. The lacing is very good. The aroma is grassy, spicey, and sweet. A hoppy pilsner, saaz hopps are featured. NIce lingering bitter finish. A very good pilsner, nice balance, great session beer.

Dock Street Bohemian Pilsner...on tap at the brewery.

Appearance-comes to me in a tall thin pilsner glass. Pale gold with a large foamy white head trapped with lace and bubbles. Attractive.

Smell-light hop aroma up front, alcohol and the sweet grain I associate with the style. Notable little traps of yeast and bits of malt bite.

Taste/Mouthfeel-medium mouthfeel, hops come in and provide some good flavor before being overtaken by the grain and alcohol mix associated with the flavors. Less sweet than most, a little watery on the way down, hops try to re-surface but are drowned away. Finishes with a last touch of grain.

Drinkability-lots of flavor here to like in a Pilsner and no real issues.

Overall-a well done pilsner, I like the hoppy variety of pils and this trends towards that style. Doesn't quite reach the heights of the giants like Prima or Sunshine but I like this a lot. A winner.

Had this on tap at the brewery. Poured a golden yellow, very clear, nice frothy white head that stuck around for a while. Smell was very earthy and crisp, clean malts and some bitter hop notes. Taste had small malt body up front, pretty one dimensional there and then nice crisp and bitter hop finish. Very simple but tasty and refreshing. Great summer/session beer.

I've had this beer before, but finally decided to review it.

This beer looks perfect! The bright, clear yellow beer, the fluffy white foam, the constant stream of fine carbon dioxide bubble, the everlasting lace left by each sip, it was exactly how a beer this style should be made to look like. And importantly, it was served in the proper glassware to accentuate the beauty of this beer.

The smell was clean, hop-forward with a little bit of malt sweetness. And it tasted that way too, but having an assertive Saaz hop bite that was spicy and a little grassy. The malt provided an underlying backbone to support the beer and provide a bit body.

I was looking for a thirst quenching beer after a hot day and I got it in this Pilsner

On tap @ the brewpub on 10/3/09. Served in a Pils glass.

Pours a HUGELY effervescent clear gold, topped with 2 fingers of brite-white foam. This has some of thee best retention that I've seen in a while. It just kept bubbling and bubbling, and looked beautiful paired with that clear gold color. The aroma is tight smelling with Pils malts, definitely more bready than sweet, along with fresh citrus and floral spice, which gives this a nice zesty pop in the nose.

The taste has (once again) a good firmness to the malts, with a big splash of lemony citrus and aggressive spicy hop character that STICKS in the mouth with an instense dry feel. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a very crisp yet very smooth and creamy carbonation. Just a great mix of the two feels that kept this hugely drinkable.

A top notch American take on a Czech Pils, this was just SOLID with flavor and quite thirst quenching. I killed this glass in no time flat and could have pretty much kept going to this during the duration of our visit.

3.53/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a foamy white cap that fades out; leaves waves of lace on the glass

Smell: Bready, with a faint hint of noble hops

Taste: Very bready, with a building noble hop presence by mid-palate; after the swallow, the breadiness dominates, leaving a slightly sweet element in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Easy to drink, but I would prefer a bit more noble hop presence

Serving type: bottle
