Notes / Commercial Description:
A crisp Czech-style pilsner named for the Lager Beer Riots of 1855, Chicago's first civil disturbance. After the Mayor raised liquor license fees and ordered taverns to close on Sundays, armed German and Irish immigrants took to the streets. The riot was stopped by the militia, but the next year the Mayor was voted out of office and the laws were restored.

On tap at the brewery’s tap:

The beer appeared a clear, light golden that produced a nice white head. The head was well retained and left some nice lacing.

The beer gave off a nice, sweet, malty aroma…as expected from this style.

The taste of the beer was good, certainly not the best Czech Pils I have ever had, but I could probably have sat there and put back a few. A light sweetness, which was extremely easy to drink. It had a lighter feel to it and excellent carbonation. Overall, a better than average beer.

Had at the brew pub in a 5oz glass. Pours a clear gold color with a nice head.

Very crisp and clean aromas of noble hops, grains and a good amount of crackers as well. Nice depth as well.

Very nice and smooth medium feel with good depth. Polished and focused with flavors of noble hops and crackers.

This was extremely good. Nice and crisp, but with a sort of fatness to the feel as well.
