A sessionable pale lager inspired by similar Czech beers. Premium authentic raw materials shine, including Moravian pilsner malt—foundational to the substantial but rounded hop flavor and aroma.

Poured into a dimpled mug: color is straw gold, clear, head is bright white with fine bubbles and presents one finger thick.

Smell is bread, biscuit, pilsner malt, light grapenut, lemon and herbal hops, spicy herbalness.

Taste is biscuit, crackers, pilsner malt, herbal and lemony hops, some peppery notes.

Mouthfeel is moderate carbonation, low/moderate sweetnss, moderate bitterness and biting crispness lingers.

Overall an excellent czech pils - crisp, craker, herbal, slightly biting feel. I want to make this beer.

16 ounce can - $4.00 at Woodstock Beer Market in Woodstock, Georgia.

112223.

Appearance: Pours a clear, golden-hued body with a lofty, white head. Generous amount of lacing on the way down. A beer that's not just good and good for you, but also pleasant in apperanace.

Smell: A hay hewn pilsner maltiness smelling of fresh-made biscuit dough flecked with a raw grainy element. A lightly spicy herbaceousness, a faint, errant hint of sulfur and kiss of meadow florals.

Taste: A blend of dough and graininess. Hops are chiefly of a spicy, herbal kind, but also offer some light floral, lemony hints. Very faint blip of sulfur. Appreciably bitter. A vibrant pils maltiness and minerality on the nicely dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Lovely. I could drink this all damn day long.

16oz can from Tavour. Pale clear golden pour, one finger fluffy white head. Another beauty. Biscuity aroma, grainy, bready. Taste is all of that, super clean, near crisp finish, just a light bitterness. So damn tasty. Excellent.

16oz canned 9-13-23, opened 11-24-23.
This one pretty much has it all, all the characteristics I enjoy in a pilsner.
2 finger white head with great retention and lacing, straw gold body and excellent clarity.
Light sulfur, hay, grass, spicy hops and a bit of dough in the aroma.
Crisp mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Dry finish with a linger of noble hop spice.
Outstanding.

Smell is crackery and a bit spicy. Clean and crisp with notes of citrus, rye and peach.

Taste is crackery and a bit peppery. Clean and crisp with notes of citrus, rye, wheat dough and a moderate bitterness.

Clear pale straw-gold with two fat fingers of dense, yellowed head. Good retention gives way to rocky dissipation and clumpy lacing.

Mild aroma with a little skunk, a little grain and maybe a hint of mint.

Clean taste that follows the nose. Restrained bitterness and a touch of ash in the finish. Super easy drinking

Medium bodied, maybe a touch creamier than expected. Just enough carbonation for the style.

Excellent beer. Can see why it’s their flagship.

Clear pale gold with a tall white foam that leaves some chunky, wobbly lace on the glass.

Though it's still enjoyable, exhibiting a floral bitterness and a touch of citrus rind, it's a touch more malty and corny than their German pils, which is a bit of an unexpected style diversion, thus the slight ding in my overall score.

Appearance: Pours a fairly clear golden color with a two finger head; decent retention and copious lacing

Smell: Bready with a graham cracker element; spicy, grassy hop aromatics

Taste: Graham cracker forward with a bready element, as well; the malts provide a slightly sweet undertone which blends with the grassy hops; a good level of bitterness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: I don't think I have yet to be unimpressed by anything I have tasted from Schilling
