This did seem more "german" in taste and smell than "czech." Smooth feel, more toasted grain and lighter hops in the nose and taste and less herbal floral hops than I expected. More full bodied, not as crisp as your normal czech pilsner. Very sessionable.

a tasty pilsener, more in the german tradition than the czech, with a slightly sweeter and larger grain character, and less of the grassy limey hops. bready or rather crackery malt body to this, even though the color hints at some caramel, it stays away from the fully desserty side. all grain up front, with only a bit of bittering hops to balance the finish. the body is really big for the style, drinks more like a pale than a pils, which may limit its sessionability for some. for me, it was just fine, slippery going down still and plenty bubbly. i tend to prefer the czech style, i like those hops a little bit more and its crisper many times. the yeast aspect of this is strange, underachieving maybe. overall good beer, a straight shooter from bear republic. should have mass appeal.

@ Ridgewood

Clear yellow under a sticky white head that leaves tons of lace behind on the glass. Aromas of fresh dough. light floral spice, and a slight sulfur note. This may, in fact, be the doughiest smelling beer I have come across. Spicy hops, grain, slight grass, and lager yeast. Pretty light, clean, crisp, and drinkable. A very simple PIls. Certainly not bad overall, but it didn't grab me and demand to be drank by the gallon like a really good Czech Pilsener does.

Tried this on tap, wrote it down as “00” which I assume is the same as double-aught. So there.

This pours a golden yellow-straw color with great foam.

This has a lightly hopped aroma with a distinct lightly toasted biscuit note to it.

There’s a slight peppery note on the flavor which complements the grassy hops and toasted biscuit. I made a note of the carbonation as it kept things feeling light.

I really enjoyed this one. First time seeing it.
