This is a great pilsner. Full flavor, smooth, crisp, really tasty. Interesting to see it unfiltered. Von Trapp definitely seems to know how to make a quality lager. yb

This was poured into a pilsner glass. The appearance was a straw yellow color with a two finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipates at a nice pace. Moderate thin stringy lace. The aroma takes in sharp spicy Saaz hops (grassy bitter harsh) and let’s it flow over a nice contrast of sweet biscuits. Evens out nicely. The flavor takes in a nice blend of the previously mentioned aromas to boot. Light balanced aftertaste of biscuits/breadiness to grassy hops and that rides into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fabulous sessionability about it. Low carbonation seems to hit appropriately. Spicy hops balance with their sharpness over my tongue. Overall, really nice Czech pilsner that I would have again.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A: big effervescent white head. Clear body with a nice gold hue to it.

S: spicy and floral hops give way to a light breadiness.

T: lots of the hops come through and give the beer a spicy floral bite interspersed with some light doughy malts on the end.

M: great carbonation clean and crisp on the tongue.

O: I am still not completely sold on a pilsner they are still too floral hoppy for me without the grainy doughy malts that I like.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear pale straw color with a thin layer of head. Almost no lacing. The aroma is sweet malts, floral hop notes, grass and grains. The taste is floral and grassy hops, sourdough bread, lightly toasted malts, and spicy hop notes. Lemon peel and spicy hop finish. Light and crisp mouthfeel. Good deal of carbonation. Overall, a really good Pils I'll be buying again.
