3.55/5 rDev -3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A - A very light, clear orange amber with a frothy pillow of head on top, that dissipates into a collar that's slightly thicker than the norm.
S - Lots of grain and floral notes, with that lavender twinge I've come to expect from Czech Pilsener.
T - Crisp, bitingly bitter on first sip with a vibrant hoppy kick. Not much complexity in the hop profile, however. This one is also slightly yeasty and finishes relatively clean and kind of dry.
M - Not watery, as the active carbonation gives a good bit of foamy body to it, but still pretty thin.
D - Absolutely a session brew. The bitterness is not overwhelming and the ABV is modest enough.
Overall - It's a very basic pilsener beer. It's definitely still more substantial and satisfying than BMC light beers, but it's definitely a summer thirst quencher rather than a complex sipper.
