look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

(Served in a American Pint glass)

A- This beer pours a clear slightly dense deep copper body with big bubbles popping to the surface where the head boils away even before it forms.

S- The aroma of sulfur is dry but light with a stale malt aroma to follow. Otherwise the smell is pretty clean.

T- The bitey dry hop bitterness has a hint of sulfur with some faint dry Pils malt with a touch of sweetness to it. The finish has a bitterness that lingers a bit. There is a light banana ester note that comes through when the beer opens. It remains light but it is still odd.

M- The light mouthfeel has no alcohol heat and a tight fizz.

O- The big bitey hop bitterness doesn’t really have any malt support except for a slight sweetness and the odd banana ester. The carbonation and bitterness makes it almost astringent. It was a bit hard to get through a bomber of this.

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

A: three finger frothy head with decent retention and nice lacing on a golden with crimson hues body.

S: a little pungent and earthy with bland pale malts and slight lemon note.

T: earthy and herbal hop notes, pale malts in the background with a lemon grass note provides a slight bitter finish but less so than other czech pilsners.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation. smooth.

Overall: one of the better beers from this brewery and certainly the best of their year round beers. Not as bitter as many czech pilsners.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Poured with two and a half fingers of white foam on top of a hazy, dark golden body. The foam settles very slowly and leaves ncie lace on the glass.

S - A light aroma of bready malt with a hint of hops.

T - Light malt up front with a bit of herbal hop character. Some thicker bread notes in the middle and a moderate hop bitterness that lingers on the palate.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.

D - Not bad, it doesn't live up even remotely to a real Czech Pilsner, but it is a decent tropical lager. Bland, but refreshing.
