Picked a 12 oz. bottle up at D's 6 Pax and Dogs. Pored it into a pint glass, and was quite impressed right away by the head. It's a nice, lush finger of white fluff. The body is a pale, light orange-yellow. Very bubbly.

The smell is very much like bread. The malt comes out very nicely, as does a decently floral hop character. Almost a witbier-esque quality to it.

The taste is so light and floaty, but not in a flavorless kind of way... what I mean is that this is a very flavorful beer, and that those flavors just happen to be very light. Sweet orange peel and a bit of drying hops on the finish. Still, the fluffy mouthfeel makes this less of a "crisp" pilsener, and more of a, well... fluffy pilsener.

Full Pint has impressed me so far, and I look forward to trying more stuff of theirs very soon. A good, quality pilsener.

Pouring at Bocktown, pours a pale golden clear bright white head with speckled lacing. Aroma had a nice herbal/grassy Saaz nose to it with that trademark pungency that hop carries with it, light biscuit pale malt character with a hint of citrus in there as well. Flavor was clean crisp dry finish with a pleasant biscuit malt character and Saaz hop character in the finish, not the most complex or flavorful beer in the world but well done simple can be just as enjoyable. Light bodied with even yet ample carbonation, goes down nice. Overall impression was decent not the best not the worst pils, but a solid offering and the first lager I've had from Full Pint so kudos to them for that accomplishment.

Had a bottle at Liberty St Tavern. It's not quite as light or crisp as a good Czech pilsner, but it's a fine American pils similar to the odd example of a Pre-Prohibition pils. There's the smooth bready malts balanced against spicy, dry hops, all of which make for an unremarkable, but generally tasty beer. I'd take another.

Another local...support quality local beer!

Yellow-golden appearance with a nice white head that recedes, but an attractive rim & lacing sticks around. Carbonation bubbles. Looks good!

Bready, yeasty & lightly citrusy in the nose. Lime peel, boiling hops, sour dough aroma. Floral.

Taste is light, somewhat sour, with a bit of yeast flavor. Hops throw in with a mild astringency. Sour dough bread. A touch of peppery hops flavor trails towards the end.

Light-medium bodied. Easy to take in. Clean, refreshing. Enough dry breadiness to make one want more.

Notes: I like the new label design, however, I've got Full Pint's Coffee Porter in my fridge and the lady with the backbreaking cleavage on the label is just another example of cheesy, cheap, pandering artwork.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is sweet, some grains and malts. Taste is crisp, grains, some sweetness, lightly hopped, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality beer.

Poured into a pint glass.

5.0 A: Clear pale golden wheat color. Two fingers of creamy/pillowy white head. Retention is very good and lots of lacing is left behind.

3.5 S: Sweet grainy maltiness with a grassy hoppiness. Simple, but gets the job done well.

3.5 T: Grainy malts. Good interplay between the moderate bitterness and the moderate neutral malt sweetness. Perhaps a touch doughy. Grassy hop flavor.

3.5 M: Light body on the heavier end. Good moderate, crisp carbonation. A touch of creaminess to round things out.

3.5 D: Solid, easy drinking pils. Not much else to say.

Yes I am so happy this is Czech Pilsener. They are so sweet.

A - A nice clear yellow in color with a slight ring of foam that turns to a semi sticky ring.

S - mmm Saaz hops I guess with a slight bit of grain and a touch of sweet malts. Not very aggressive.

T - A very clean beer overall. Slight hops not overbearing with mostly sweet malts and a mild touch of grain. Love me a Czech Pilsener.

M - Light and crisp.

Overall I am glad I picked it up. Was very happy to get a very sweet rather than overbearing grainy bitterness. Good beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a pilsner: Kind of a pale golden-orange, a little darker than I'm used to in a pils, under half-a-finger of soft, meringue head. Hazy, with moderate, tiny, slowish nucleation. Head drops to a thick coating & clings to the sides.

Spicy hops in the nose at first, a little peppery. That yields a bit to allow some sweeter notes in: a fruity, cidery quality, & a kind of concentrated sugar sweetness, almost like a jam or apple butter. Interesting, if a little unexpected. I've said "Mmm" a few times on sniffing this, so that's gotta count for something.

"Mmmm" turns to "Hmmm" with the taste: The hops are still spicy, but there's a really dry, seltzer kind of bitterness with it. What's strange is that it's followed by a kind of salty/savory character that reminds me of turkey cold-cuts, interestingly enough. Some darker, kind of bread crust flavors in there, along with that just sort of errant sweetness. Gotta say, this is a little weird - a less-than-diplomatic descriptor would be "sweaty". Aftertaste is rough: really bitter & again a bit meaty & salty.

Seems a little full-bodied for a pils, too - not as crisp & light as I'd expect.

Boy, this started off promisingly enough, but some bizarre stuff going on in the taste. If I just swallow it fast without scrutinizing, it's not nearly as off-putting (still strange, though), but the aftertaste is still a minus. I've definitely had better from Full Pint.

Pours a clean deeper yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, saaz hops and a nice malt presence. In the taste, nice hop presence, however, malty and balanced. A small hop bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry saaz hop aftertaste. Nice pils, nice body and hops. Clean and fresh!

Pours a bright clear yellow in color, soapy white foam, little lacing. Aroma is light, bready malts and some grassy hops. In the taste, mellow bitterness on a crackery malt body. Simple and true. Light bodied. Decent enough. Was great to wash down a sandwich.

Poured into a standard pint glass, straw color, transparent; offwhite head that laced nicely; ok carbonation.

Smell is more malt, less hop bitter, but slightly grassy. malt is sweet, not a crisp pilsner scent.

Taste is mildly bitter, crisp hop notes, malt is sweet hard to distinguish the pils flavor.

Mouthfeel is a touch to sweet without good bitter balance.

Overall, another west of east PA Pilsner that misses the marck when stacked against the true Czech pilsners; it is a tasty brew just not quite to pils quality.

Poured from a 12 FL OZ bottle into a pint glass. I received a 24 mixed pack from Full Pint Brewing Company for Christmas from an uncle who lives in Pittsburgh. I am anxious to give this a go!

Appearance: Pours a bright golden yellow with decent carbonation. Head is minimal and disappears quickly.

Smell: Grainy malt aroma dominates. Thin hop aroma. Saltwater?

Taste: Metallic hop flavor dominates. Somewhat unbalanced. It tastes like a standard local brewpub pilsner. Slightly salty taste, which is interesting.

Mouthfeel: Very crisp and refreshing. High point of the beer.

Overall: I appreciate what the brewer is going for, although I feel a lot of smaller/newer breweries have a tough time pulling off a great lager. The aroma is too grainy, while the flavor is not subtle enough. I like that this beer has its beer nerd stats listed on the label.
