3.53/5  rDev +1.1%
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

Clear golden body. Creamy bright white head. Fair retention. Some minor lacing. Sweetish malt and floral hops greet you in the nose. It's more dextrinous in the mouth than one might expect, but it's not over done... medium bodied and crisp with a standard carbonation. The flavor is as the nose suggests with some very nice, grainy and sweet malt at the heart of it. The floral and spicy hops, however, are also present from start to finish, and really dress it up in a nice way. It's not complex, but neither is it intended to be. A touch more bitterness could lend it another component though; it is a touch sweet, but otherwise right on for the style. Great finesse for what's there though. The sweet edge is obviously intended, and it's really well-balanced with that in mind. Superbly drinkable.

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.

Clear yellow in color with a fluffy 1.5" head. Some light lacing develops during the session. The aroma was minimal - only light malt and hay. The flavor was tame, as malts and bitterness seemed mild. Tiny notes of fruitiness were also detected. Smooth in mouthfeel with a slightly dry finish. I expected a bit more bite or crispness, but not bad.

The flavors nicely last on the tongue after swallowing. Nice carbonation levels. Nice drinkability since there is some nice flavors and it is light in body.

On-tap at the brewery.

In a word: underrated. This is a fantastic pilsner full of malt and hops flavor that should be recognized for it's deliciousness. The malt lends a sweet, bready and nutty flavor, and that's met by a sharp and spicy hops flavor and bitterness that leaves a long trail of an aftertaste. Great drinkability and full-flavored - give it a try.

A: Poured a medium golden-orange with a foamy, off white head that quickly settled to a sparse layering. Visible carbonation was light but steady.

S: The nose brought forth some nice bright hopping and citrus and was really nice.

T: The initial flavor yielded a bright sharp citrus hopping and oranges. The hopping was very dominant and clean with some honeymalt sweetness. The overall flavor was sharp and fresh in nature making for a solid example. Really liked this one.

M: light, with bright oranges coming through with a beautiful hopping. Carbonation is light and subtle on the tongue.

D: Definitly session material, Bright citrus and oranges with a clean sharp flavor and hopping makes this a joy to drink and definitely worth a try. I would buy a sixer of this easily.

On tap at Dock Street on 6/16/08.

A - Hazy golden/straw-colored body with two fingers of creamy, bone white head that held fairly nicely and left a bit of lacing. Lots of active carbonation present.

S - Fresh wheat-like aroma with a slight biscuity malt and mild lemon zest, followed by a more fruity aroma reminiscent of apple and white grape.

T - Malt is quite bready overall, and dominates the flavor. However, there is ample lemon zest, which provides a moderate bitterness. Some grassy hops are present as well as a mild fruit sweetness.

M - Pretty smooth and creamy texture with a bit of oily slickness. Medium body with mild carbonation for a pils.

D - Honestly, what pils isn't easy to throw back? Not the best pils I've ever had, but far from the worst. This one's a bit more smooth and thus less prickly and lively than your standard pils, but overall this is a pretty solid effort from Dock Street.

poured a golde yellow color with nice white puffy head that quickly fell and left nice lacing along the sides of the glass. Smell is very minimal with maybe a touch of citrus present. Taste is malty sweet and very refreshing. Finishes with a bit of hop dryness that is enjoyable with the malty taste. An unpretentious beer that has great drinkability.

Pours out a bright, pale golden color with a sufficient head. Nose is grainy, pleasant malt with a nice grassy hop overlay. Clean and crisp malty flavor, but less bitterness than I expected from the aroma. Reasonably dry finish. Neutral texture with crisp, effervescent body.

Decent pils, nothing too special.

Dock Street- Royal Bohemian

A- Bright clear yellow with a big foamy head. Quick dissipation with a small amount of lacing.
S- Strong crisp grainy malt slight touch of sweet corn.
T- Big bold malt. Very grainy. Fresh cracked grains like oat, sunflower, spelt, and barley. A slight touch of lemon and orange poke through in the end. Slight grassy earthy hops mingle throughout but never imposing.
M- Strong bready grain malt makes a DRY beer! Sweet punchy flavors come out in the end.

Overall- What?! A Pilsner that I really enjoyed!? WOW, here's a beer that impressed someone who scoffs at Pilsners! Very flavorful and tasty. Awesome summer beer! If you like Pilsners buy this beer!

Single, twelve ounce bottle copped from Gary's in Madison...
Pours a medium-golden hue with a minor head that quickly dissipated and deposited a thin film of lacing around the edge of the serving glass...
Sweet, semi-grainy aroma with hints of wheat, and a nice mixture of malts and hops...
Crisp, clean, flavorful taste... Easily drinkable and a pleasure to down...
Good stuff from Dock Street...
Worth a shot...

Part of my MicroBeerClub shipment received in late June.

This beer poured a yellow color, with little to no head but decent carbonation is showing. Nose is of sweet malts with a hint of lemon. Taste has a hint of lemon, grass, and malts with a slight hint of hops in the finish. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth, almost creamy. Overall drinkability is pretty good. This beer is going down well on a 106 degree Phoenix afternoon!

Despite the crooked label, this beer pours a straight-up golden hue topped with a frothy ivory settling thin cap.

Metallic scents of water fountain offering and copper.

First swigs: Some grain and pilsner-esque scents. No macro nose. Light fresh water and smooth buttery white bread.

Last swigs: One dimensional at best. Partof a mixed case that was a Summer Mix. This is a convert beer at best. Nothing off yet nothing stellar.

Beer is good. Happy beering.
