Pours clear golden color with a thin white head that dissipates pretty quickly.

Smells slightly hoppy with some grassiness.

Tastes - Malty and hoppy. Starts pretty sweet but has a hoppy bite on the back end.The after tastes is unpleasant. Almost medicinal in its bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Medium body and carbonation.

Overall- Not a very good beer. Not a huge pilsner fan but I suspect this isn't a great one.

Pours clear shiny golden, one finger white head that's full of bubbles, but doesn't just pop off quickly.
Not much in the smell, some malts (bit too sweet, bit grainy) and some traditional Czech hops, a bit spicy.
Sweet malts, but never too much, with a biscuity note, grains and a very low corn feel. Some cooked butter, faint caramel, a touch of golden fruit, and then the expected (bit spicy) hops follow till the mlidly bitter finish. Some sweetness keeps coating the mouth, but nicely balanced with the hops and grains.
Light bodied, a bit buttery, medium carbonation.
Doesn't impress in any way, but has a certain balance that makes you want more. A maltier option to Pilsner Urquell from the same brewery.
