3.1/5 rDev -14.1%
On tap at the pub. My least favorite of their beers...This pours a super light straw, watery color. In certain light it looks green, unappealing. Off white head that is actually pretty nice...The aroma is not bad, floral hops, with some spice to it, pilsner skunk finish...The taste doesn't do it for me, very bitter, herbal and skunky. I had a hard time finishing my glass.
Not a huge pilsner fan to begin with, but this is one is average.

I'm going to guess that this is a Czech pils, as there was no written description of ABV listed for this one when I had it. Served in a 4oz taster glass.
A - The lightest of the Haymarket offerings at a pale straw, and the least hazy as well. Poured with a half-finger of eggshell foam that settled to a thick collar and some hazy film on top, leaving a few specks of lace.
S - Some light herbal and floral hops, some fruitiness, and a slightly buttery pilsner malt backdrop.
T - Reminds me a little of Pilsner Urquell, which is unfortunate as I don't really like that beer very much. Sweet buttered bread malt character, and some light herbal bitterness.
M - Medium-bodied, chewy and sticky, pleasant moderate carbonation, clean finish.
D - Meh. Probably my least favorite of Haymarket's own tap offerings. Wouldn't bother with this one again, even though it was plenty easy to quaff.

Beer poured from tap into a Tulip shaped glass (surprised they don't have a pilsener shaped glass)
A - Light gold color with a cloudy looking body; one finger head formed and held very well; good amount of sticky lacing formed on the side of the glass
S - Crisp and bitter pilsener smell; light airiness; clean and refreshing but also somewhat maltier than most Pilseners I've had
T - Pilsener taste hits the palate immediately, but tails off way to quickly; I expected more of a bitter aftertaste also but it just finished very clean; it was almost like the flavor hit the tip and middle of the tongue and was washed away before I could enjoy it further
M - Thin consistency; bit foamy; brewer should find a better blend of ingredients to add more flavor to this Pilsener; thought I'm not really a fan of these types of beer, it should come packed with more Czech punch!
D - Overall a very good beer; definitely nice looking with a rock solid body and head; I would have liked a bit more flavor to it though

Served at the brewpub.
For the second straight year, a friend's bachelor party has afforded me the opportunity to hit up some new beer spots. First up is Haymarket, complete with this here pils. It pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light grass and straw. Not much going on here, really. The taste holds notes of grass, flowers, very light lemon rind, and light wheat. This is a nice response to the fairly weak smell. The body is a hefty-feeling light, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall, a nice little pils, nothing really outstanding, but a fitting beer to start things off and/or enjoy whilst the weather continues to hammer us with heat and whatnot.

The Speakerswagon Pils is a good solid beer. It poured a clear golden color with a white head that sticks around for awhile and laced slightly. The Saaz hops was present and there was a slight citrus(lemon). The taste is typical of most Pils with the Saaz hops generating most the buzz...balanced by malt. The mouthfeel was light bodied and very smooth. Overall a decent Pils and good for sessions.

Single finger head on a clear straw colored body. Standard aroma with malts and grains and sweet corn. Flavor is also standard following the nose with pale malts, grains and wheat. Moderate to high carbonation and light body. Bitterness cOmes in late to the finish. Refreshing but basically a forgettable pils

Pale gold, ultra bright clarity. Delicate crown of intricate lacing rings the inside of the glass. Initial finger of foam dwindles to a wispy skim after ten minutes.
Nondescript husky grain aroma, clean pilsner malt.
Firm grassy noble hop bitterness from the Saaz hops, crisp and clean, simple crackery malt flavor. Light herbal tea flavor from the hops,dry bitter finish with a pleasant hint of honey. Crisp easy drinking lager with a good streak of hop flavor. Pairs with any food easily. Simplicity is underrated.
