Pours a transparent straw yellow color. Bubbly white head dissipates almost immediately. Lots of carbonation is apparent. No lacing.
Smells of grass and sweet malt. Some faint hops and citrus in the background. Overall faint.
Taste is sweet biscuit, citrus, and a hop finish. A dry, mild bitter aftertaste lingers with some grapefruit notes.
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, smooth, with a dry finish. Some carbonation in the finish.
A good lager. I would purchase this one again.

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.
