3.45/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: standard 500mL green embossed bottle, chincey macro label.

Appearance: golden yellow in colour with plenty of carbonation. A foamy head puffs up and drops almost immediately to a half-finger head with good retention.

Aroma: a very clean, crisp, hop-orientated nose. Citric and grass hops hover over a sweet bread malt backing.

Taste: a typically reasonable and pleasant Czech pilsener. The hop flavours from the nose come through. Very easy to put down, this beer. Not brilliant, but refreshing.

Aftertaste: not much aftertaste at all which is fine as that is standard for the style. Just need to drink more.

Mouth feel: light in feel with a decent amount of carbonation. Could use a bit more.

Overall: not a bad pilsener at all, but with an equivalent of AU$60 for a case of 24 x 330mL, is it worth it? I don't think so. Just get a different, cheaper equivalent Czeck or German pilsener, which are just as good. this simply doesn't have the 'cut above' factor that would make the extra cost worth while.

I like this a lot more than Pilsner Urquell, I'll tell you why.

Bottle

Head was two fingers in the long neck. I did not see a freshness date, but it looked fresh.

Smells of lemon and grapefruit, and not like skunks.

Taste: Cereal, wet grain, a hint of metal.

Mouthfeel: thin

Overall, this is a decent representation of this style which is generally hit or miss for me. I'd have to say this was better than I expected!
