3.5/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A low profile white head quickly dissipates to a thin film over the clear, honey-yellow brew with very little lacing. It clouds up a little as the last dregs from the bottle drip in some yeasty sediment. It has the smell of Euro mineral water and damp wood.

The beer has a decent grain bill, with a touch of sweetness in the cereal malts and some light hops giving a bit of bitters character. Overall a pretty smooth product, easily consumed, with a nice, straightforward label and well rounded flavor profile. Probably would pair well with a roast pheasant dinner.

Sampled last night on 7/22/14.Comes in a pretty 11.2 ounce (330ml) bottle. Af irst I thought it was another selection from Pilsner Urquell. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a 'Dinkel Acker' small glass boot.

Pours a pretty gold in color with a thick foamy white head that lasted a while. Decent amount of lacing was seen also when sipped. Lots of streaming bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Since most of brews that come in a green bottle is on the 'skunky' side for some reason, this was NOT the case with this one at all! The aroma is of malts and hops for the most part. More going on with the taste as there is a slight nutty flavor in there also because the malts and hops. A very light hoppy finsih that doesn't last. Great taste and easy to drink!

Big head and great lacing. Stays all the way in a tall pilsner glass. The carbonation on this can was very lively. Maybe the tall glass helped? I've had this before and it looked flat in a tulip glass.

Aroma is of noble hop... maybe Saaz? It also smells malty and nutty.

The taste is nutty with some diacetyl and and a good bitter aftertaste. Lightly roasted barley malt is also in there.

Mouthfeel is light to medium. A bit more chewy than many pilsners.

Overall there is a really nice balance of malts and bitterness here. This stands up to Pilsner Urquell as a classic Czech pils. The mild Saaz hop bitterness is there as is the buttery diacetyl flavour. A very good beer to remind one of the qualities of a simple but well made lager.

I would give this 87 out of 100.

3.31/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Clear, yellow pilsner with a big, frothy head that fades very quickly.

S: Not much going on here; malty with a bit of spice.

T: Decent; malt up front with a bit of bitterness late; goes down very easily but doesn't leave much of an impression.

M: Again, nothing special; seems like a "typical" pilsner.

O: Not a bad brew for a hot summer day, but it's far from being my go-to when the mercury starts to rise. It's very easy to drink, but I wouldn't go far out of my way to obtain it again. Not that it's a bad beer, mind you, I just think that there are better offerings out there.
