As-clear-as-can-be gold, typical of czech pilsners. The foam quickly reduces to a small but persistent head.
Subtle, there's a spicy and somewhat metallic hop nose. A little bit of skunk in there as well - green bottles. A touch of malt, but not too much. Overall, a little cleaner than other Czech lagers in that there's less diacetyl.
Upfront the flavor is hops. Grassy and spicy with the sweet and bready bohemian malt flavors following right behind. In the back end there's the perfect level of lingering bitterness. An enjoyable balance of malt, hop, and bitterness that leans towards the bitter end.
Lighter bodied than other Czech lagers, which is partially to be expected with its lower alcohol content. Seems to be less carbonated that its German counterparts. I've noticed this in Budweiser as well(the real one.)
You can really put these guys down, and its 4.4% abv makes it that much easier.
The original pilsner, and quite a tasty beer. One I find myself coming back to over and over.

One of my favourite pilseners.
Pours a clean, golden color, very decent carbonation. It is topped with a generous white foamy head, that slowly settles down to only a lacing around the egde.
The nose easily picks up pleasant malty and grainy aroma, a bit stronger than with some others.
There is a tiny initial sweetness, followed by a nicely balanced body, concluding with decently bitter finish, the bitterness staying for some time.
Very refreshing, easily drinkable and enjoyable. Exactly what pilsener must taste like.
