$1.69 for a 12oz can at Siciliano's. Brewed with "pale malt, german specialty malts, Saaz hops. 35 IBU's, 5.3% ABV. Czech style.

Pours out to a slightly hazy pale straw golden, almost whitish, forming a meringue-like bone white head with superior retention and beautiful lacing, owing it parts to it's brisk carbonation of about 3.0 carbs. The nose is delicate...a wisp of grainy malt, floral/grassy Saaz, mild DMS, and a very clean fermentation. No diacetyl, no other off-aromas. Mouthfeel is crisp and prickly with a light body. Goes down very easy. Clean finish. The taste is a recap of the nose...delicate malt in beautiful balance with a mild-moderate bitterness, just a touch of DMS in the flavor, delicate grassy Saaz hops, no off-flavors. Excellent drinkability. Goes down and you want some more.

This is an excellent pilsener, however, it is more in the German style than Czech. The bitterness and hopping rate are more appropriate to the German pils. Despite this, it's a great beer and something I would buy more of. Up there with Victory, Lagunitas, Avery, New Belgium and Summit as far as high quality American made pilsners go. Recommended without reservation.

poured this into a "pilsner glass"; came out a rich gold tone with a soapy white head, large and retained for quite some time. aroma doesn't offer much but the alcohol. flavor wise i'm not displeased. it's not an unpleasant drink, there was a hint of caramel, and a nice full mouth feel.
