@ Wedge (no relation)
Golden yellow color with a thin white head above. Fresh pils malt sweetness, warm dough, and spicy noble hops in the aroma. Flavor is of the same, authentic quality: pale, biscuity malt and spicy/floral hop bite...super refreshing. Light, crisp, and effervescent. Simple, yes, but very well executed. A good Pilsener is hard to find.

amber color emerged from it with gold interlaced throughout. A very nice three-inch high head of lace then came over the top and settled down slowly into just a thin film
surprisingly hoppy. Lots of notes of fresh grass with a very very light hint of grapefruit, which was layered very nicely on top of the grain like base. Really nice light profile though with a clean and clear essence about it. The flavor followed along pretty much perfectly. There was a nice amount of malty bread like grain in the flavor, but it was definitely hopped up in the typical west coast style, especially for a Pils. Nice crisp clean refreshing

On-tap at Wedge Brewing Company, Asheville, NC
A: The beer is relatively clear straw yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving delicate lacing covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sweet bready malts and floral hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of bready malts (with slight hints of sweetness) and notes of floral hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly clean and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This Czech Pilsener has some nice aromas and flavors of floral hops. It is rather easy to drink.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a light, golden coloring, with a filmy, sparse, white head. Aromas with a grainy backbone, and floral highlights, and semisweet berry notes. Flavors are toasted grain forward again, with berry notes, and tangy sweet, grainy end-notes. Light and crisp in mouth, with a floral and crisp aftertaste. The finish is smooth and light, with a subtle toast linger.

On tap at the brewery in all its metallic glory. Drunk 9/6/10, reviewed from notes taken the same.
Alcohol was listed at 5.3% on the board, I suspect it changes from batch to batch - hopefully because they are still tweaking this one.
A. Unfiltered? Hazy, anyway. Some active bubbles. Richer straw (contradictory I know, deal) yellow. Low-to-no head. No lace. :(
S. Vague pale malt, sweet, hint o' honey, Noble hops are there, but are timid. Just rather low (being served too cold doesn't help either) but even so, this could be more snappy and characterful. Nothing "wrong", just not much of the right.
T. Taste follows the nose here. A basic, decent Czech Pils, you know the drill. I know the Wedge can do better than this. You should not have competition from Czechvar when yours is this fresh. Easy to put back, but needs more malt fun and more hops all around, methinks. The only way this is a departure from the style is that it's more reserved than most.
M / D. Slightly better - clean (it should be), quenching Pils that goes down easy but is still rather bland and unadventurous. I'm all for stylistic accuracy, but the fact that I know the caliber of the Wedge brewers makes me review harsher than normal. Get some lace on this guy, up the hop aroma, filter this sucker, and crank the malts up just a bit - your customers, or at least I, will thank ya.

Appearance: Faintly hazed, pale straw-hued body with a light, tight, white head.
Smell: A nose of German pilsner malt along with notes hinting of spice, zesty dried herbs, and even lemon.
Taste: Sturdy base of pils malt, slightly tangy, lightly sweet and with a small hint of firm graininess. Floral, spicy herbaceousness and a touch of dry lemon from the Noble hops. Modestly bitter. Finishes dry and crisp with a light, lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Drinkability: A simple, though nicely constructed and well-balanced pilsner from Wedge.
