Pint can, we'll see if it aided in the flavor protection
App: Super frothy head, but it dies quickly. Light gold color, the slightly darker color I associate with the czech pilseners.
Smell: A touch of sweet honey followed by a strong bite of floral hops. perhaps a touch of herb, but mostly floral, perhaps clover.
Taste: Biting up front with strong, bitter hops and little malt character. The flavor of this beer is in the finish: smooth husky malt with touches of caramel. A faint white grape skin is noticeable in the finish. The hop flavor is slightly metallic but mostly indistinguishable and just presents itself as bitter.
Medium body from the strong carbonation that ends watery, but it has a nice creamy mouthfeel. Odd that it can be both.
Serving type: can

3.55/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Serving Type: 500 mL can poured into stemmed pilsner (beer tulip) glass.
Appearance: Clear, brilliant gold color. Soft, frothy head recedes to a fine haze; produces slight lacing.
Smell: Clean, mild, grassy hops balanced by bread maltiness.
Taste: Crisp, clean bitterness with lingering dry finish. Hops balance well against sweet malt body.
Mouthfeel: Full but soft carbonation. Light to medium body with smooth, creamy mouthfeel.
Overall: Although not overly remarkable, enjoyable in its overall balance.
Notes: Far from the memories of draft tasted at the brewery in Plzen during the 1990s, but currently much better in cans than earlier green bottles.
Serving type: can
