look: 5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A : pours a clear yellow with big thick white head. Super tight bubbles that never leave the top and leave great lacing.
S : a small hint of skunk. Mild sweet pils malt. Corn. Not really any discernible hops.
T : starts light, husky tannic flavor. Straw, grass, and corn flavors. Mild hop bitterness that lends a bit of earth and mustiness to the flavor.
M : light bodied, well carbed, easy going with high drinkability.

A really good beer. Light and easy to drink, but a good representation of the style. Would be a great beer for the islands in the Caribbean. Very drinkable yet still nicely flavorful. Much Better than American lagers.

3.4/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is crystal clear dark yellow in color and does not have any visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high head that died down a bit but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Aromas of sweet grainy malts are present in the nose along with some hints of grapes, although no hops are noticeable.
T: Like the smell, the initial taste is a bit sweet but this isn’t cloying because there is also alight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn’t that bad, but it isn’t as malty compared to other pilseners.

3.35/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a crystal clear medium to dark golden yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation, primarily near the surface of the beer and at the edges of the glass. The beer has a half finger tall bright white head that quickly reduces to a mottled surface of extremely thin film and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of carbonation are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of corn adjunct malts with some light hints of skunk. The corn smell is rather sweet and there is a very light presence of grassy hops.

T: The flavor of this beer is very similar to the smell - starts out a little sweet upfront with the taste of corn adjunct malts but then the light bitterness of the grassy hops becomes present.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: This beer is enjoyable, the flavor while slightly sweet initially there is a pretty good balance to the flavor. Easy to drink and definitely sessionable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - clear straw golden, fluffy head held its own and left lots of random lacing
S - big grassy and herbal hop aromas, light toasty grains and light metallic
T - grassy and peppery, light toasty grains and a buttery finish
M - light and well carbonated, slightly watery, finishing crisp and dry
O - a classic czech pils in many respects, not best in class but a tasty and easy drinking brew well worth a try or two

500 Ml bottle....pale yellow with foamy white head. Skunky smell fills the air as soon as I pop the top. Taste is light and watery with a little bit of hop bitterness that hangs around after swallowing. the mouthfeel is smooth with medium carbonation. Overall this is a slightly above average beer, no off tastes, very easy to drink. Im glad I tried it.
