4.58/5  rDev +30.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This brew pours a perfect, for a pilsner, clear golden straw color with a white foamy one finger head which lasts until near the end, moderate lacing on the glass, good carbonation.

The smell is lemongrass, sweet and roasted malts. A little caramel and peppery hops appear to be in the mix as well.

The taste is straw, lemongrass, caramel malts with a light spattering of peppery hops on the backend.

The mouthfeel is a little tangy, earthy and gritty although not very gritty. The brew leaves a bit of a dry taste in the mouth after swallowing.

This is a fine pilsner and I think a near perfect example of what a pilsner should be. I normally don't like pilsners but I will be drinking more of this.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pale yellow in color with just a slight haze. Poured with a huge, rocky foam that overtopped the glass. Excellent head retention.Strongt biscuity and earthy grass-like aromas with herbal hop notes in the background. Medium bodied with tangy, spicy assertive carbonation. Carbonation seems a little too agressive. Biscuit and bready malt flavors up front. Tangy carbonation thru the middle introduces herbal hop bitterness that combines nicely with the maltiness to the finises. As this warms the biscuit and herbal flavors intensify very nicely. Finishes semi-dry with a bready, herbral hop aftertaste. Nice charcater to the flavor. This got better and better as time went on.

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!

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.

This is a nice pilsner. A bit inky, but not so much that it kills the drinkability. Nice grain tones. Nose seemed very dough and bread forward at first, which went away fairly soon. Overall, an easy drinking pilsner. Another reason to be a fan of Full Pint.

I picked this bottle up at Quick Six Mt Rose -enjoyed chilled from a pils glass.

The color is golden with gentle haze and a very gentle pour yields about 3/4 of the glass full of foam which settles to about 3.5 fingers with very brilliant golden body and thick white head with thick lace. The smell of floral hops is balanced by a slight yeast ester with light malt sweetness that accents the toasted nose. A good amount of malt body supports the resinous spicy hop texture with light bitter tinge and slightly creamy element from yeast with gentle mineral dryness in the finish.

The taste has a nice expressive pilsner malt quality with lots of fresh lager yeast flavor and mild mineral aspect with herbal hops that are abundant and have spice flavor that adds balance to the malt w/ a hint of bitterness as the finish arrives with a prickly carbonation that gives a dry impression combined with the oils of the hops, but a nice toasted malt flavor lingers. Overall I consider this a quality pils which I could enjoy on any hot day like today or any day for that matter.

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.

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.

A: Pours a cloudy orange/copper color with a small foamy head, which does not last very long sadly.

S: Aroma is of pilsner malts, and light hops.

T: Taste is of sweet malts and bitter hops.

M: Mouthfeel is medium bodied but on the thin side.

O: Overall not a bad offering for a pilsner not really one of my favorite styles but could drink a few of these anytime.

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.

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.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Light golden yellow with a white fizzy 2 inch head and minor lacing.

Smell - Pale wheat malts, sugars, lemon, caramel, some minor hops and light fruits. A bit of bready/herbal notes from the yeast.

Taste - Light and crisp, plenty of malts and yeasty notes. Bready flavor mixed in along with some bitter hops. Really dry finsh and bitter, lots of spices also without any alcohol present.

Mouthfeel - Its light and easy on mouth. Tounge gets plenty of malts, yeast and spices. Pallette gets more malts and some bitter hops. Aftertaste is dry, bitter and sour.

Overall - Decent and easy to drink, just nothing too special. Its more malty then the standard czech pils ive come to know. Really the big downfall is such dry bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Still, a nice summer beer worth drinking.

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.
