Thanks to my sister for getting this for me for my birthday.

A: Good god, this beer looks perfect. Brilliantly clear straw body topped with a pure white head comprised of identically sized bubbles.

S: Crisp malt with a bit of hop aroma. Very nice without being too much.

T: Dead on nuts. Exactly what a Czech pils should be. This easily rivals Reality Czech. Again with the crisp biscuit malt but no real hop flavor.

M: Nice and light.

D: Perfectly boring for a daily drinker. I need a sunny day for this.

Sample tasting @ Cargo Cafe

A: Golden clear with a fingers worth of head. Minimal lacing

S: A balanced smell for for pils. The malt hits you first then a a bit of the hops

T: A good layered taste of malt than hops. Definitly a good balance of the two.

M: Light, carbed just enough to excite the palate

D: Defintily a drinkable beer. Nothing to say WOW about but refreshing and tasty.

On tap @ Little Town in Union Square. Awesome place that only serves craft beers. And only crafts brewed in NY State.

A- Pale golden yellow, has about 1/2 in head laces beautifully with lovely activity

S - really nothing there, watery slightly malty with just the faintest buttery sense

T - Wow super smooth with a lot going on. Starts sweet and malty, buttery smoothness. Nice dry hop finish, super crisp and refreshing!

M - Finishes clean, perfect amount of carbonation. Unbelievably drinkable

O- where has this been all my life one of the best I've had this summer. Great choice for those not yet into crafts, really tasty and a great American pilsner

Thanks to drseamus for the growler.

A: Perfect pilsner pour. Clear golden color. A finger of white head with a little bit of lacing. Perfect.

S: Fresh malt. A little bit hoppy. Very nice smell for the style.

T: Very nice balance of malt and hops. Very light. It is wonderfully boring.

M: Very light body. Well carbonated.

D: I liked this beer quite a lot. Very nice example of the style. Boring but great.
