3.3/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

5.2% as the brewpub. Listed as Pils on the board but I'm assuming its the same thing.

Pours a mostly clear light yellow, some gold highlights, thick white head forms, settles down to a thin ring around the glass, some lace spots stick.

Smell is alright but lacklustre, a bit of graininess, some honey, lightly floral and herbal Saaz, toast, lightly sweet, a bit spicy, but not much going on.

Taste is similar, just sweet and grainy with a touch of hoppiness, some honey and toast, a bit of floral with a decent herbal bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. Easy to drink but is just so so.

Tapped a light gold with a frothy cap that lasted longer than many pilsners....did not have the Saaz blast in the nose but a very pleasant citrus over malty grainy smells. A bulkier body than a pilsner with more sweet malt pronouncement more bittering in the hops profile...the finish had a fruity tone to it like tart apples/citrus.

Light golden in color with a white filmy head. The beer has a subtle Noble hop aroma. A light, refreshing flavor, nice and hoppy without being overpowering. A clean beer which is very drinkable. This beer rated third on my list of the eight beers I tasted.

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

Deep golden with a small off white head that leaves good lacing. Malty aroma with saaz hops in their as well. Definately a well balanced aroma. Taste is like a good czech pilsener. In fact this is like a better/fresher/fruitier moosehead. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and drinkability is high. Nice.
