My bottle of Czecko was completely uncarbonated. You couldn't coax a bubble with a straw. No lace, no head, no life. It was pale straw gold with modest clarity, a generic aroma, and a bland, unfocussed amalgamation of... whatever. It's not worth describing, let alone drinking. I'd simply call it a run-of-the-mill homebrew that's not ready for prime time.

Appearance This was a clear, pretty yellow in color with a faint orangish tinge. The carbonation wasnt bad but the white head was somewhat subdued for the style.
Smell This beer smells like fucking butterscotch! Nuff said.
Taste OK, butterscotch with stale seltzer water.
Mouthfeel This is light-bodied with a cheap fizzle.
Sinkability This stale, stinky, rotten Pils met an early much-deserved death in the sink.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with riversideAK (thanks!).
Poured a medium and slightly hazy yellow color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of citrus / citrus rinds, grains, and lighter grassiness. Tastes of citrus, spices, some doughiness, and grainy.

This is one of the offerings from a rather new brewery out of Tulalip, WA. From the bottle, this pours a hazy gold with a thick, sudsy head that recedes slowly. The bouquet is a mix of dough and apples, and the doughiness comes through in the flavor as well, emerging as a pronounced butteriness. The body is rounded out by a slight fruitiness--again, apple.
What's lacking here is the crisp finish that I expect in a pilsener. The length of this brew is so consistent that it has the texture of an American blonde ale rather than a true pils. Ultimately, this undermines the beer by taking away that quick hoppy finish which makes pilseners so (in my mind) refreshing. It's rare that I want a beer to lose some length and body, but here, the length is actually a characteristic of Czecko's imbalance. Eventually it just starts to taste a little slimey.
A mixed result overall for this brew from Aldergrove. With so many fine pilseners on the market these days, it's hard to see why I would go back to this one.
