Fresh bottle from the brewery. Great summer beer, refreshing after a very hot Milwaukee day. Nice foam head retained on mellow yellow body. A little cheese smell but mostly pleasant aroma. A lemon citrus and tastes more bitter than it likely is. Easy mouthfeel and a good drinker.

Poured into a pilsner a vibrant lighter to medium golden with a fluffy bone white head atop that left broken sheets of lace as it settled slowly.Toasted cereal grains and herbal hops in the nose,pleasant but not to assertive.The palate is much more hop assertive, a big shot spicy saaz hops really jump out over top of a crisp cracker dryer malt profile,a sharp,dry,crisp pilsner.This is a great pilsner,maybe the best I have had,the hops are big and the malt is dry and crisp,a great beer.

On-tap at Three Cellars, Franklin, WI:

Pours golden with a lasting white head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of pils malt and lemon-y floral notes from the Saaz.

The taste is malty with soft bitterness from the Saaz hops in the clean, crisp finish.

An easy-drinking, well balanced pils.

16 oz twist-top bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
5.0% ABV, 11133 on neck (Bottled April 20th, 2011)

A - Vibrantly clear and golden straw yellow in color, this pils is topped by a two-finger, loosely packed white head. The effervescent foam lingers for a bit then leaves patchy lace left on the glass.

S - Subtle spicy notes of Saaz hops balance the smooth, slightly sweet pilsner malt well. The soft water rounds the nose out with a touch of authenticity.

T - Assertively hopped for a pilsner (or what pilsner has become), the Saaz impart a bold earthy and spicy bite to the taste. Unmatched by malt, the usual pils sweetness of this style gets washed to the background of this beer. Curiously, the flavor still remains delicate.

M - Soft water lends a smooth, clean feel accented by playful carbonation to this brew. The crisp, clean beer finishes with a bright but welcome bitterness from the Saaz.

O - Sprecher's newest addition to the lineup is quite a welcome one as it reaches to and exceeds a style that seems dumbed down as of late. The fragrant aroma and crisp, clean flavor and feel make it both a great nod to a classic Czech pils as well as a spectacular refreshing summer beer!

on tap at devils den in philly

Pours a clouded golden yellow color, with a crop of white head resting on top. Plenty of white lacing on the glass with some filmy legs.

Lemon peel and grassy notes in the nose, some soapy notes as well. Light hops with toasted grain and faint metallic hints.

Light bitterness up front with soft hops. Soapy and metallic throughout. Light toasted cracker notes with bready malts. Hints of citrus as well. Finishes a little dry and sticky.

Lighter medium body, higher carbonation, sticky and unfortunately lingering. This was pretty terrible to be honest, poor flavor, boring scent, and forgettable in nearly every way.

Poured from a 16 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma-Has a strong lemon/floral aroma. pretty inviting
Appearance- a murky golden color with a one inch white head
Taste- very bitter with a strong buttery flavor, not my cup of tea
Palate- medium bodied with an oily feel
Overall- I was disappointed with this beer. I expected more and it didn't deliver. I was really turned off by the butter flavor.

Pours an ephemerally hazy, medium yellow with no discernible head at all.
Smell is dirt and and the inside of a gym shoe. Wow.
Taste is hops, dirt and whatever you get from licking a boot.
Almost medium bodied. Effervescence is sharp up front fading fast to medium. Drying and clean finish. This plain sucks. Pure drain pour.

Bottled May 31st.

A - Slightly hazy, bright golden with a fluffy white head. Huge patches of lace cling to the glass.

S - Spicy hops with sweet, grainy malt.

T - Spicy, herbal hops shine with crisp grainy pilsner malt in the background. Much hoppier in flavor than aroma.

M - Smooth, clean and crisp with a lingering dry finish.

D - About time their is a local pils with a good dose of hops. For those that like their pils a little hoppier this will be a great summer refresher.
