Poured from a bomber into a flute. A golden yellow brew, just a little hazy, with an initially large frothy white head that settles into a more manageable lacing on top. This one has got me excited. Aroma is pleasing enough if not a tad underwhelming, fresh cereals, grassy hops, and a vinous fruit tangy note, gentle and just a little sweet. Palate delivers the goods, malts on the rich side, almost a honeyed cereal vibe, and the musty vanilla bean and hay descriptors that folks sometimes use for Liberty hops seem very appropriate here. Assertive flavors, although the brew remains firmly anchored within style guidelines. Not fruity. The expected hint of diacetyl butterscotch that can separate a Czech pils from a Germanic one. Body is just on the thin side of moderate, with a pleasingly prominent carbonation level. Finishes quite crisp and almost a little chalky or flinty, with an uber-clean bitterness. A world class Czech pils in terms of flavor despite the choice of Liberty over Saaz and dare I say one of Rogue's better brews, although I've said it before ... When these guys avoid gimmicks and stick to the script, they do great work.
