Clear gold with a thin white cap of fine bubbles. Good head retention (constant stream giving it support), some lacing. Balanced aroma, malty, bready and caramel with grassy and floral hops. Easy drinking too, with moderate bitterness that was more pronounced in the slightly fruity, spicy finish alongside grassy notes, mild malt sweetness. Great texture, creamy and medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very good.

Poured into pokal

A: Pours a straw, golden-yellow with a creamy white 2 finger head.

S: Grassy, earthy, with a ton of grain and fresh bread aromas with hints of sweet, honey, malty notes

T: Clean pilsner malt with delicious noble hops giving flavors of light spice, earthiness and grass, especially in the finish.

M: Soapy, yet clean. High carbonation that tingles.

O: An excellent American made Czech pilsner, which is too rare these days. Simple at first, yet subtle in its complexity; this is for refined palates. A must try for Czech beer lovers here in the states.

Bottle from Colonial Spirits.
Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a smallish bubbly bone white head that quickly dissipate to a cap on top. Aromas of spicy hops and rich bready lightly toasted pilsner malt make up the aroma. Clean rich lightly sweet bready toasty malt offset with spicy earthy hops. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a lightly sweet slick bubbly mouthfeel. Really nice Bo Pils here. Clean, simple, flavorful. Come to NH already!

A: Clear, yellow with a fizzy white head. Typical for the style and not much to note here. No lacing or retention.

S: Great hop presence. Light enough to showcase the yeast and usual nose for the style.

T: So refreshing and crisp. Hops really contribute to a nice finish. Floral, slightly fruity, and a bit earthy. I would gladly have another bottle, which is rarely the case with a Pilsner for me.

M: Drinks so well. Clear, clean, crisp. Tasty and never bland or dry as I find some Pilsners to be after a while.

O: A very good version of the style. Tough to find a Czech Pils of this quality on this side of the pond. Nothing too remarkable but a good twist on the style with a bit more hops than usual. Recommended!
