12 oz bottle poured hard into a nonic.
Golden color, not that pisswater yellow but a deeper golden transparent. Head billows up and recedes rather quickly. No lace show and minimal ring around the collar head remains.
Husky grain, touch of lemon and sourdough bread with grassy hops in aroma.
Feel is crisp and mildly slick.
Husked grains to start with more bready sourdough funk and light lemon tartness. A touch of fermented sugars drying it into the finish with lingering spicy herbal hops.
A fuller body than I'm used to for the style but the drying finish and bold earthy hops lingering after the swallow are what keep me coming back for more.
Great for the heat wave we are currently stuck in. As this is refreshing, yet full flavored.

Poured from the can into a Turbinator style glass.
A: It is clear and an active brew with a two finger rocky, white head. Lacing is minimal, legs are not present due to moderate ABV. Crystal clear, really nice translucence.
S: Typical lager smells, a little lemony lemongrass, earthy yeast and mild malts with a little of the pale euro funk.
T: Lager smooth, hair euro-skunk due to that classic hop profile. Lemongrass, earth, skunk, Irish cream at the edges. Bitter at swallow causes pleasant dryness.
M: Moderate and pleasant in every way. Slightly creamy hit and then slick on palate leading to a lightly bitter finish.
O: Yeah, this is really darned good. Every part of this contributes to a whole that is more than the sum. A very good expression of the light Czech/lager style.
