Notes/Commercial Description:
Description: This classic Bohemian-style Pilsner brings noble hop flavor and traditional maltiness into perfect union. A healthy dose of imported hops tips the scales towards a decidedly hoppy finish.

Also this beer is no longer produced in bottles. I'm not sure if there is anyway to change our rating because our bottles were contracted brewed and were not up to our standards hence the termination of bottling. Or I guess we just get more people to review the draft version which is many times better than our old bottles.

Re-review: 20-October-2004

Upgrade the smell from a 3 to a 3.5, the smell had a nice blend of hops and grain. Taste from a 3.5 to a 4 b/c it deserved it, this bottle didn't have th skunk like the lst one I remember...

Paid $24.50 for the mixed case...

The appearence was a hazy amber golden color with a huge frothy, detailed white head with good retention and above average lacing. The aroma was ok but nothing great, hints of grain were there....

The taste is above average, better than what I expected after the smell, a little skunk factor but was very negligable. Thus the mouthfeel was a little harsh, the drinkability is not bad, but not all that good either.

Final Thought: This has amber lager written all over it, I don't consider this a true pilsener, also a little strong for the style...
