4.05/5 rDev +19.5%
A: Dark yellow / pale gold and very clear. Loose white head drops to half its original size in about 90 seconds.
S: Crackery malt aroma up front with a hint of earthy/spicy hop aroma in the background. No aromatic flaws. Very slightly sulfury from pilsner malt (pleasant).
T: The first impression is of balance. Malt flavor and hop bitterness are very complimentary. Same cracker / light bread flavor from the malt with again the earthy spicy hop character to follow. Aftertaste leans to bitter, but not at all harsh, and still retaining some sweetness (perhaps slightly corny).
MF: Medium light bodied and quite carbonated. Somewhat prickly on the tongue. No alcohol warmth or creaminess. Produces loud crisp burps.
O: A well-built traditional beer. I bet others will knock it for not being extreme enough, but to me this is a very good example of an American interpretation of an old-world pilsner.

2.99/5 rDev -11.8%
A- Pale amber body, slightly hazy, foamy white head that hangs around and leaves some lacing behind.
S- Grainy malts, some earthy hops, slight hints of lemony citrus. Slight hint of skunks ness to it as well that comes and goes.
T- Lots of sweet grainy flavors, hints of lemony hops come through, but this one tastes a lot like sweet grainy water. Very few pilsner-like qualities.
M- Medium-light body, tastes somewhat dirty, medium carbonation.
O- Not sure if this one is incorrectly listed as a Czech pilsner, but it tastes like a slightly heavy euro lager. Drinkability is decent, but the aroma and taste leave a lot to be desired.
