The first flagship beer in the Holy City arsenal is our version of a traditional Bohemian-style Pilsner, with significantly amped-up hops, imparting a wonderfully sharp bite to what’s already a dry, crisp affair. This beer will quench your thirst and please your palate all in one glass…but we bet you’ll want a second.

Glorious hazy golden hue that screams DRINK ME, with a huge fluffy snow white head leaving sheets of lace down glass. Wonderful!

Harmonious blend of sweet fresh grain and floral earthy noble hops. Well done from some that KNOW how it is done.

Grainy sweet earthy floral nectar that coats the face holes with grand goodness. OOOHFAH! Outstanding styling from a hard hitter in our local market.

Wonderful way this fills the mouth then leaves a crisp tart finish that begs for more poured in to gullet.

I have not had many freshys from across the pond, if any, and this is my new measuring stick. OUTSTANDING czech pils. No real need for me to attempt this style unless at the source as these cats have nailed it. BRAVO!

Poured a clearish yellow gold with decent head on top of a subtle, pils malt aroma with touches of citric hops. Beer is light, easy to drink, has a good pils taste and a touch of sweetness. Not watery but is light and somewhat nondescript. A simple, enjoyable summer beer that finishes with a crispness that is pleasant and is enjoyable.

Not completely clear yellow-gold, maybe a little chill haze. The head is loosely foamy, leaving behind some webby lacing. Nice, warm biscuity malt aroma with a mild noble hop spiciness. Tasty pilsner malt, grassy and straw-like hop bitterness, and some lingering graininess. Light and mostly crisp in the mouth. Simple and good...surprisingly, it was the lagers that impressed me most from this brewery.
