Picked up at Trader Joe's in April 2014.

A- A blonde, or pale golden beer with perfect transparency. It's as clean-looking as spring water. Heavy carbonation surges upwards aggressively and help maintain the persistent head that remains from the finger-thick post-pour peak.

S- Has that characteristic sweet malt thickness that I find in many Sierra Nevada beers. It's almost like cornbread if I'd say, although I don't want to imply a corn adjunct was added, only that that's what the aroma reminds me of. Spicy floral hops are underneath this initial sweet aroma.

T- Initially sweet and perhaps offering some bread, crackers and/or biscuits, floral hops emerge toward the backend of my palate.

M- As mentioned before, starts sweet but quickly becomes dry and crisp. At the finish, the hops provide a subtle bitterness that is easy to not notice since the beer is so easy to sip without putting much thought towards the taste.

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.
