Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: aerozeppl on 06-18-2010

This beer may have a cheeky name, but don’t be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beer’s smooth character.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of grassy hops and bready malt. Body is light and slightly crisp. Taste is of grassy, herbal hops and bready malt. Finish is medium and dry. Very tasty, session brew. (262 characters)

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A: Pours a clear, pale yellow with a thin white head that dissipates very quickly.

S: Aromas of grain, minerals, rosewater, herbs, grass, honey, and lemon are present on the nose.

T: Notes of minerals, lemon, herbs, grass, grain, honey, and rosewater wash across the palate. The finish is clipped with lemon, herb, grass, and mineral notes.

M: Medium-to-full in body, waxy, and a bit stickier than expected. Carbonation is very prickly. As beers of this type go, this is far from easy to drink. Unexpectedly filling and bloating for the style.

O: This beer has done little to convince me that American craft brewers handle European lagers well. Compared to many of the Czech classics, this lager is sorely lacking. Everything about it is just a little off. Although it is not bad really, the aromas and flavors displayed by this beer are too simple and too straight-forward and the carbonation is far too forceful. There is not a lot of depth, complexity, or subtlety here and the whole package is a bit too unrefined for my liking. Again, it is not really that bad, but it does seem a bit dumbed down compared to the beers it tries to emulate. (1,148 characters)

Poured into a pilsner a light lemony color with a very thin head wich left me a bit dissapointed.Wet grainy aromas with some underlying iron/metallic notes along with mild toastiness.Firm toastiness on the palate with real restrained sweetness,a decent shot of sharp peppery hops in the finish.To me this is more of a north German style pilsner with its dryness and healthy dose of hops in the finish,still I have had much better pilsners,I still love ST though. (462 characters)

In a pilsner glass the beer was a light gold color with a tiny white head. There was a smidge of lace.

A rather nondescript aroma. Hints of grass, pepper, and sweet malt. Nice, but not great.

Taste similar to aroma. Sweet biscuit and a hint of grassy hops. Again, nice but not great.

The beer was crisp and refreshing, and was easy to drink. (344 characters)

12 ounce bottle, "DOB 12/19/11" etched on the bottle

Pours super clear and super light straw in color. Fine near white head, stays a bit then goes to a loose film and leaves some nice looking very fine lace.

Grassy nose with a hint of lime.

Light (seems to be a theme developing here) crisp and summery in character. Light malts up front, quite drying and crisp tasting hops in the middle and finish. Another hint of lime.

I like it. Would be great with some peppery salads and spicy noodles, BBQ, other summery foods on a nice warm summer day...ahh looking forward to some warm weather, wont be too long now...get some of this and enjoy (642 characters)

3.62/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: minimal head, medium-high carbonation, gold in color, clear

Smell: grass and some sweet malt

Taste: grass, toffee, and bittering citrus hops at the end

Mouthfeel: sweetish start with a dry bitter finish, moderate carbonation, medium-light bodied

Overall: An above average no frills pilsner that leans slightly to the bitter side. Not a bad beer, but nothing I will revisit soon. (394 characters)

L: An energetic brilliant straw colored pour crowned by a ½” quickly dissipating white foam collar. S: Very clean aromas of light grains. T: Traces of sweet caramel in the background and light malts. F: Light and effervescent. O: This is light, crisp and clean but not boring. (279 characters)

got a growler from consumers on abbott road. reviewed from notes.

clear deep golden color, big fluffy pure white head. lots of great sticky lace, great retention.

grainy pilsner malts, earthy floral hops.

pale, sweet, grainy pilsner malts, a nice spicy floral hopkick, then finishs with the grains once again.

light bodied, yet full flavored, great carbonation for the style.

great session beer, a growler is an easy kill. if your into pilsners, drink this if you can get it. (480 characters)

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Bottling date of 12/19/11.

Appearance: Pours a bright and very clear looking golden yellow with lots of rising bubbles and a solid two fingers of white head with good retention. Moderate lacing around the glass.

Smell: A light blend of pale caramel malts with some wheat grains. Has a nice grassy, somewhat herbal presence of Noble and Saaz hops giving that classic earthy Pilsner spice.

Taste: A nice bready, grainy taste of pale malts and grains up front that is followed by a earthy, grassy blend of Noble hops and Saaz. Hops give a nice little kick of bitterness and spice towards the finish. Pretty solid.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a medium to heavy amount of carbonation. Very crisp and somewhat prickly. Very easy drinking.

Overall: A pretty solid take on the Classic Czech Pils. (860 characters)
