A -2012 bottling. Pours out a golden yellow color with white fizzy head.
S - Smell is grassy, herbal and malty. Spot on for the style.
T - Taste is somewhat dry, but with a nice slightly spicey kick from the Czech hops. Crisp, but a slight malty sweetness coming through.
M - Mouthfeel is a bit prickly and carbonated but still very drinkable.
O - Overall a refreshing beer for those summer days when you want to have some good brews but not overdo it. These would pair well with your typical BBQ fare, chicken, ribs, etc. To me this is what the macro's would brew if they actually cared. Or better yet, what most American's would want from their beers if *THEY* actually cared and the Pilsener style really was the beer of choice. Maybe in 100 years everybody will be drinking pale ales or something.
