Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Eurotrash Pilz pours a clear gold color with a tiny head. Overall, this was a pretty surprising beer from Southern Tier. The aroma is light, with noble hops and light malts. The taste has a light dose of noble hops over a light malt base. A wet dog sensation comes through halfway in - it's been a while since I've had a macro-styled beer so it's almost novel. The mouthfeel is light and crisp, and the drinkability is great. It's a pretty much pitch perfect take on the Euro Lager style, but more drinkable and flavorful. I like it.

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.

Pours a crystal clear golden yellow color with a skim head that leaves lines of lace on the glass at some points. The aroma is of grains and a sweet malt. The taste follows close suit with a grainy taste with hints of grassiness and a touch of citrus. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated and crisp and clean. Overall it was a decent pils, a nice flavor with a good pils mouthfeel profile.

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.

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear light golden yellow color with a slight white head. Clean aroma of a slightly floral hop with some notes of wheaty bread. Light/medium mouthfeel. Slightly weet start with a floral hop that adds some nice bitterness components. Drinkable.

12oz bottle purchased for $1.69 at Main Market Co-Op in Spokane. No freshness date to be found on the label or the bottle. It DOES state that this was “brewed with 2 varieties of hops and 2 types of malts,” but declines to name them. I was a little surprised by the stridently bright pink used on the label, but it certainly makes it stand out.

Poured a somewhat hazy, straw-gold color, with a white head that drops after a couple of minutes, leaving a foam ring.

Soft, floral hops and biscuity malts are detected by the ol’ factory. Very pilsner, or Pilz, -esque.

Tastes mildly hoppy to start with, and then is almost immediately matched by the malts. Ends with a crisp note. While not a flavor bomb, it captures the essence of what a pilsner should taste like.

Light bodied, yet with an almost creamy mouthfeel.

A good choice for a hot day, and it’s supposed to reach 97 degrees today. As I stated above, it’s not a flavor bomb, but pilsners aren’t supposed to be. I would definitely drink this again.

On draft at Yogi's

Pours clear straw with a small white head. Spotty lacing.

Aroma is pilsner malts and grassy earthy noble hops with a little bit of bready malt.

Follows the nose and is classic to the style. A little bit of grainy sweetness along with a lemon grassy hop profile.

Medium body, very crisp with good carbonation levels.

A nice Czech pils. Wanted something a little lighter and it delivered. Not complex, but nice and crisp.

Serving type: on-tap

A: Pours a clear straw yellow color with almost no head

S: Some bready pilsner malts, grains, and lightly spicy hops. Very simple and clean

T: Follows the nose. Lightly sweet and bready malts, cereal grains, and light grassy hops. Finishes with a light lingering of the hops, but still very much on the clean side

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid American-style Czech pils with a good amount of flavor that borders on being sessionable. A nice spring seasonal

Southern Tier Eurotrash Pilz is a super clear, pale golden lager with a white head that quickly fades to a bubbly film. There's not much aroma. It smells a little sweet, grainy and maybe lemony. It's very light bodied and pretty smooth with a dry finish. It tastes a little sweet up front, then a sort of chemical taste comes in with a little bitterness toward the finish. Yeah, I think this was appropriately named. There's not much going on here. I find myself drinking it faster to wash the aftertaste out of my mouth.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Light yellow/golden tan, slight green tint, not much of a head or lacing.

Smell - Pilsner malts, some lemon, banana, yeast, some light floral hops. Added sugars, some spices. Grassy and peppery.

Taste - Sweet and tart pilsner malts, light floral hops and spices make up the main flavor. Malts mixed with the hops work well with the added spices and sugars to make a really big flavor. Lots of lemon adds to the grassy flavors. Yeasty taste comes out along with the hops near the end.

Mouthfeel - Light, crisp and malty. Malts work over tounge and palette with there thick, bold flavor. Hops and spices come in after the malts and add flavor and balance. Aftertaste is malty, yeasty and a little dry.

Overall - Very tasty, smooth and easy to drink. Has alot of flavor and low alcohol. apretty good example for the style. Could use a little more hop kick to it but overall is worth the drink.
