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.

Pale straw yellow color with a fleeting white head that settles as a bubbly ring. Slightly doughy pilsner malt sweetness in the nose along with a floral/herbal hoppiness and a flash of sulfur. Simple, light flavors...cereal grain, grass, and a spicy hop bitterness. Clean, light, crisp, and suck-down-able, but ultimately too watery and plain to bother drinking more than one.

Southern Tier Eurotrash Pilz has a completely clear, golden colored body with a lot of active carbonation bubbles leading to a very soapy looking, white head. The retention and lacing are both very good, and overall I would consider this Eurotrash to look pretty good.

The aroma has a bit of floral hops to it that is backed up with a lot of pale, sweet malts.

The flavor is fairly balanced between hops and malt. The hops come through first, with a lot of floral and grassy flavors, as well as some lemon. The malt base is quite sweet and completely pale. Flavors of cracker and bread come through as well.

High carbonation and very light feeling.

I really thought that Eurotrash was close to the trash European pilsners than the quality Czech and German versions that I have tried. It is by no means terrible, but I doubt I will be in a hurry to try

Southern Tier Eurotrash Pilz has a medium head, a somewhat hazy, slightly bubbly, yellow-gold appearance, and some thin, splotchy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, cracker, with some grassy hops. Taste is the same. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Southern Tier Eurotrash Pilz finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and dry. Overall, this is nice. I like it.

12 oz bottle poured into a Kostritzer pilsner glass.

A: Pours a golden straw color typical of the style. The head is a one finger white shade. It fades quickly, nor does it leave much lacing on the glass.

S: I really like how hoppy this one is. Tons of zesty, grassy noble hops bombard my nose with only a modicum of malt sweetness coming through.

T: The flavor doesn't come across quite right; it seems to be heavy in both buttery and vegetal components. It has that green bell pepper quality I tend to dislike in some pilsners. Some sweetness builds on the midtaste which slightly wrecks the balance.

M: Not as crisp as I like in the style. It's properly light, but the hops don't really cleanse the sweetness particularly well.

O: Merely an average pilsner; the vegetal character really hurts it. Not bad, but there are much better lagers out there.

Had this on 2012-06-04 in Columbia, PA

A - Very clear yellow with a 1-finger white head that fades quickly and leaves little lacing.

S - Grassy, bready, herbal and light stone fruit. Volatiles fade quickly.

T - Honey-sweet pale malt, citrus, light stone fruit, grassy, herbal/metallic and some light hop bitterness come through at the end. Dries quickly leaving a citrus-tart and light bitter finish that sticks around awhile.

M - Light body and medium-high carbonation. Crisp and refreshing.

O - A pleasant but not earth-shattering pils. I much prefer Victory Prima Pils.

The beer has a bright golden color. It also has brilliant clarity and good carbonation. The head is kinda weak in that much wasn't produced upon my pour. But what head I did get had good retention through out and left some spotty lacing.
Aroma was weak. Scents of spicy hops and bready malts.
Good tasting no doubt, bready malts up front with some light and spicy hops. maybe peppery.
Prickly on the palette smooth and a tad dry.
In my opinion the only thing bad about this thing is the name. The beer is quite good. Though I think it drinks more towards a kolsch.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Shiny golden yellow body, tons of carbonation streams, excellent clarity, topped by a slightly disappointing half-finger of level snow white foam.

Nice solid fresh grass/hay aroma.

Slight sweet beginning. A bit wimpy. Minor bitterness builds to a smallish bite. Everything clears out in the aftertaste, with a hint of bitterness the last sensation.

Wishy washy mouthfeel, light, too light.

Overall, an unimpressive pils, stick to the likes of Victory or Stoudts.

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.
