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.
