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.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Clear, yellow/gold in color, with a rather short head of bright white foam.
Aroma-Faint pilsner malt
Taste-Faintly bready, metallic, short hop note seems to un-balance this brew a bit. Missing the spicy Saaz hop (at least to my palate) that makes a Czech pilsner unique. There's a hop note here, just doesn't seem like the Saaz variety.
Overall, an o.k. offering, but there are much better Czech pilsners out there.

A: Pours crystal clear pale yellow with just a hint of visible carbonation and a finger high bright white head which dissipates to nothing almost instantly. This beer exhibited little to no lacing on the glass.

S: Light aromas of floral hops and something that smells like it is just on the edge of spoiling.

T: The flavor of this beer is very sharp with bready and grainy malts present and the slight hints of spiciness.

M: Light bodied with low to moderate carbonation and a definite crispness.

O: This beer has a great name and unfortunately did not fulfill the greatness expected. Crisp and easy to drink, one could easily have a couple of these in a sitting, but would one want to with the many other superior pils available.

Appearance is golden with a nice head and lacing.

Nose is bright with citrus, malt, and cream.

Taste is nutty, with some oak and light lemon.

Mouthfeel is clean and crisp with a good amount of carbonation.

Overall, this beer scores an "A" for drinkability, and has plenty of flavor as well.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has some hints of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down but never completely faded away, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface.
S: There are very light aromas of floral hops in the nose. No traces of malts are detectable.
T: The taste has a mixture of flavors of bready and grainy malts along with hints of spiciness from the hops.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied and crisp on the palate and a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is crisp and has some refreshing properties but I’m not sure if I would have more than one of these in a sitting as there are better pilsners out there.

Eurotrash is really the opposite - it is the embodiment of one of the greatest things about European culture - a good pilsiner. Eurotrash is a well crafted beer. The look aroma and taste are all good.

It has a bit of a hoppy flavor that reminds me of the other Southern Tier brews. This seems to give it a little unique character, but for the most part, this is a simple but good pils. Tasty, and I wish I had a few more but I just bought a single.

Pours a nice golde with a thin white head. Not much retention, and not laceing.Aroma is of bready malts, and grassy hops. Body is light and carbonated. Taste is malty with a nice tang to the finish. Decent version of the style, but the are better out there. Still very worth a try.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pilsener glass. Had a pale yellow color and a clear texture. There was a small amount of creamy head that quickly dissipated. Not much lacing.

S: A nicely hoppy aroma, with traces of malt and citrus as well.

T: Tasted of hops and lemon up front, with a lot of malt in the finish. A typical pilsener flavor, to be sure, but still very focused and enjoyable.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a dry, smooth finish. Light-bodied.

O: Not exactly a super-complex brew, but enjoyable and easy to drink.

Bee-yoo-tee-full clear pale gold/ straw color with a rich white head.

Faint aroma of white bread and earthy mineral hops.

Flavor is very clean with a light bready character and a crisp short finish. Between light and medium body, just a little bit lighter bodied and flavored than a good German Pils.

Which reminds me - this is NOT a Czech Pilsener - neither in appearance nor in flavor - but much more like a German Pils. Nowhere on the bottle or in the description posted on the Southern Tier web sight does it say this is a Czech style Pilsener.

A- Pale golden with a white head that lasts decently but ultimately fades.
S- Grassy, light bread. Clean aroma with just a touch of noble hops.
T- Relatively clean throughout with a bit of crackery sweetness. The noble hops stay calm but show up as a bit peppery in the finish. Light, clean, but tasty.
M- Punches in a pretty low weight class. Almost watery. Good carbonation saves it.
O- A decent pilsner but nothing far and away better than most craft pilsners.

Poured from 12oz bottle to a goblet glass

Pours a straw yellow with a 1 1/2 finger head. Smells of egg yolk, boiled corn water, buttery malts and faint hops. Extremely grainy on the taste, all corn water, this is not what i expected at all. Light in body and feel. Overall, not much to say about this beer. It tastes like a Budwieser with a little more of a buttery feel. Save your cash and buy a case of Genny for the same price of a 6'r of this, this beer was terrible from start to finish.

ending the night with some euro trash

a- euro pours a golden yellow with a puffy white head that fades to nada. not so much in the lacing department, yet the brew does glow

s- some sweet corn and adjunct theme with a bit of floral and grassy hops. crisp and brief

t- very sweet, crisp, and refreshing simultaneously. the floral hops have some zestyness and spice involved. i like the uplifting sweet theme

m- the carbonation is spot on with the sweet flavor slapping around your taste buds. the feel out does the scent

o- what a change up from the cold weather. certainly this isnt the prima of pils. it was enjoyable

This beer pours a clear pale gold color. The head is a half an inch in height, and recedes quickly into minimal lacing. The aroma is vaguely malty with very faint bread and caramel, but it is mostly air. The taste is a lot fuller than the aroma. There is a nice balance of bready malt with and spicy hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation, and a smooth texture. Overall, this is a decent beer, but there are better pilsensers out there.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A- this beer is suppose to have a medium carbonation but seems a little low and the head is strong at first almost an inch high, but does not stay long. The color for this sytle is on the lower end of a pale gold, but the clearity is very good.

S- smell is pretty spot on the reason for the lower score is because of the diacetyl is a bit strong it is allowed but not to be that noticed.

T- this is ok the malt is strong and then the bitter hops take over works but the transiion between the to should be smoother. Carbonationis still a little low.

M- due to the malt it is a mouthful and with the diacetyl it is more pronounced.

This is good beer i wouold suggest slight more carbonation with minimizing the diacetyl to a more of a trace. Mostly adding the bitting hops a bit earlier would milded them out to help with the transition from the malt better.
