OK, I'm not a experienced beer-rater. I just know that this is one of the first beers I've had that really made me pay attention and think, "Man that tastes great."
I had one other Pilsener Bohemian style and I decided then that I was going to start learning about beers and which kinds I liked. This was my starting point getting serious about the taste of beer.
I may find better in the future, but for today, this is one of the two beers that got me started paying attention. So, for now, I have a loyalty to Pilsener Bohemian Style and a couple of breweries.

My favorite beer Odell makes.

It's essentially the perfect balance of malt and light hops, with the strength to get you where you wanna go.

I like it because it is basically a balanced 'beer' flavor. Plus it has the coolest label I've ever seen.

God bless the pilsner makers for they are few in craft beer world
8% Pils that is not sweet and goes down like a session beer.
I had it at The Happy Gnome in St. Paul.

Appearance was good with plenty of lacing
Smell: was down a bit for most pilsner a
Taste, got the pilsner crisp and hop balance nice refreshing mouth feel

I could drink Albright exept the 8% abv

A - Brilliant clarity, light golden color, white head.

S - Hop dominates the nose accompanied by malt and hints of alcohol.

T - Sweet malt, great hop flavor, bitterness, and alcohol warmth, work together to give this beer an amazing balance.

M - Full bodied with appropriate carbonation.

This is an amazing beer, very well made, everything is well balanced and profiles the hops and alcohol in this beer very well.

I'm surprised this beer doesn't do better. Pours a lemon yellow color with great clarity. A soft white head with good retention through the whole tasting. Good lacing as well.

The nose is malty with a more German pilsner nose and hoppy compared to style. Some spicy aroma almost like a wheaty note but enhances the malt profiles. The hops have a nice earthy and spicy that I associate with saaz. Very feint yeast and alcohol notes but very subtle considering the ABV.

The taste is super malt with a great hop finish. The German malt shines very nicely with a definite presence. Some honey malt notes and a light bready flavor add to the complexity. The hops are balanced between bitterness and finishing with more of a spicy, peppery flavor. Some rose like notes come out but very light yeast notes overall. A sweeter finish leaves a nice clean palate.

The body is moderate to full. Some sweetness in the finish but still a nice clean flavor. Feels full attenuated for sure. Very enjoyable beer that imo is under rated. Maybe a bit hoppy for style but a Double Pils is more of a US beer so bring it on!

Clear golden body. Thin tight white head. Awesome aroma. Perfect pilsner malt aroma...bready and cracker like. That's all I need right there, but there's also a little lemon and hay. Perfect A/V for the style. I don't need a 10% or 11% hot bomb when I have a Double pilsner. 8% is perfect. And there is hardly any alcohol noticeable in the flavor. Adds a little dryness to the mouthfeel perhaps, but nothing else. Body is medium or so and the carbonation is medium at best. Could use a little bit more CO2 in my opinion. Flavor is quite nice and the bready, biscuity, doughy, cracker like malt base is the showcase. Hops add a little hay and lemon. Very smooth and very drinkable.

This beer pours a clear spun gold color. The head is one and a half inches of bright white foam that recedes slowly into a quarter inch cap of lacing. The aroma is of grass, and spicy noble hops with a nice malt backbone. It isn't the most complex aroma, but it is strong and what is there is very appealing to me. The taste is considerably maltier than the aroma. It is almost maibock like. There is a long grassy finish. There is also a present but well integrated alcohol note. The mouthfeel is full bodied with moderate carbonation, and a velvety texture. Overall, this is a great beer that I will surely drink again.
