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.

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.

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.

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.

RumpelPilsen

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.

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.

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.

3.15/5  rDev -10.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – Pours a golden-yellow color with a one finger white head. The head persists fairly well, leaving an only very light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is of a grainy malt and some aromas of a light caramel smell. Mixed with these smells are some aromas of a lemon and grassy nature.

Taste – The taste begins on the drier and breadier maltines side with a light level of caramel sweetness. As the flavor advances some lighter grassy and herbal flavors come to the tongue while a light citrus hop comes as well. In the end, a little bit of a skunky flavor and some flavors of more malty and herbal nature come to the tongue to produce and leave a crisper taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer was on the lighter side with a carbonation level that was rather average. Appropriate for the style as it made for a very easy drinking brew.

Overall – Nothing too special here. Decent but nothing too great.

Full Pint Rumpelpilsen. Poured into a Penn Pilsner pint glass.

Precisely gold in color with a swirling bubble cascade. Very thin head, as it wouldn't develop much height on a semi-vigorous pour. Pristine clarity.

Clean grassy aroma with a musty Noble hop presence. Classic pilsener nose with a distant fruitiness. Soda cracker malt could be a little more outstanding.

Nicely tempered and mildly hoppy. Tannic dryness resemble fruit skins. Very grassy in the hop character. Not as musty as in the nose. Not as dry as others I've had, but still pretty damn dry. Nice flavor, overall.

Sparkling effervescence. Body is hefty enough to call it medium. Impressive feel.

Pretty tasty pilsner. Wish I had a six-pack, as it's a beer that I want to follow one after another. I'll be back for more, Full Pint. You can count on that.

12oz bottle: This one pours a slightly hazy, straw yellow color. There was a HUGE white head on it. The aroma is OK, and a little light. A bit of malts, grassy hops, lemon and a faint hint of spices. The taste is good. Notes of the lemon, malts and spices. Very little (almost none) bitterness to it. A pilsener should have a bit more than this one. Still a good beer overall.

RumpelPilsen has a bright golden body with a good bit of carbonation bubbles moving around. The short head is white and quite creamy looking.

The aroma has a lot of pale malt to it, with cracker and grain being featured. Saaz hops are pretty noticeable, with some lemon and grassy scents.

The flavor once again has a lot of clean pale malt. Lightly sweet with cracker and a good bit of grain. The saaz hops are pretty moderate in power, with lemon, grass and some lemongrass flavors along with a good amount of bitterness. One thing I don't like about this beer I swear there are more than just saaz or even noble hops in here. I pick up just a bit of citrus that is pretty bitter. Although the out-of-place hop is subtle at first, after a while I have trouble focusing on anything else.

I feel the bitterness on my tongue a little bit, but the body and carbonation are appropriate for a pilsner.

The hop profile bothered me a bit, as I don't like American-style hops in my pilsner. I really wonder if I ran into a problem with the way my beer was served that somehow added that flavor. It's possible.

3.63/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.
