Style: Czech Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer may have a cheeky name, but don’t be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beer’s smooth character.

Poured from the bottle a light clear gold color with three fingers of white head.

Aroma of lemon, biscuit, floral hops and sweet malts.

The taste matched the aroma. Lemon, floral hops, biscuit and sweet malts. Bitter bite to the finish.

Lighter bodied and crisp with a sharp carbonation.

I enjoyed this Czech Pilsner from Southern Tier quite a bit. I'll definitely have more this summer.

A: Pours a crystal clear straw color with 2 fingers of white head. Moderate carbonation and spotty lacing.

N: Clean pilsner malts, grassy noble hops and some slight sulfur.

T: Follows the nose dead on. Pilsner malt, grass and lemon. Has a nice little hop bite in the finish.

M: Medium bodied, crisp, clean and semi-dry.

O: Not complex but very refreshing and easy drinking. Nicely balanced with a slight bitterness. A very nice Czech Pils!

Poured a crystal clear yellow with no visible body. The head was neatly thick with a fluffy build.

Aromas of grain, cereal malt sweetness and bready notes waft to the nos but a corny adjunct scent is present. I know that this has malt and hops but it's got a corn scent in the backdrop.

The taste is absent the adjunct and big on the grains and cereal malt flavor. Smooth, refreshing Pilsner qualities are there albeit lightly. Grain and bready tones are sewn in a easy to drink package.

It's difficult to review Pilsners as they are not overly complex and by nature don't get high scores. This is a quality addition to the genre just a taste weak.

12oz bottle served in a pilsner glass.

L - clear bright yellow color with a white head that thinned to a light layer leaving trails of lacing.

S - very European, a true pilsner aroma.

T - taste is also spot on for the style with bitterness left on the tongue and sweetness left on the lips.

F - light/medium bodied with a crisp, refreshing feel.

O - a good example of the style and a nice break in the winter months.

Poured into pint glass. Apperance is incredibly pale with a thin layer of white head which leaves decent lacing behind. The nose features grassy hops typical of a Pilsener with vague hints at skunk character. Sweet corn notes come through along with some grainy quality as well. The taste is absent of the hop character that I detected on the nose. Lots of malt character with a tinge of corn sweetness. Not a lot of flavor here. The mouthfeel is feather light with high carbonation. Overall, I am not a huge fan of this Pils. The nose is a bit off putting and the malt character is a little too sweet for the style.

Light golden straw color. Sudsy head with blanketed surface and decent lace.

Crispy golden lager malts with a slight yeast presence. Sweeter grassiness with thin Euro hop mossy aromas. Pale nose with that pilsner identity keeping it classy.

Half Czech Pils, half pale Euro lager. Hard to trace grassiness, sweet maltiness, dry finish with only mild bitterness. A little watery, needs spunkiness. Hops are muted in the middle, but come with minty pine linger in the tailend. Easy to manage in the beginning with a wet and thinned-out body, but finishes with some crackle and pop. Carbonation is a bit lower than standard fare.

Hardly anything extraordinary. A mundane pils that slights the style a bit. Drinks fine, but it's passable. 3.5
