A: The beer was a bright golden-yellow color similar to melted clarified butter. The head had a medium thickness, and was just slightly off-white.
S: The smell was mainly of the saaz hops (herbal and floral). The malt and hops aromas were fairly balanced.
T: The flavor was balanced between the sweetness and bitterness. There were also some hints of lemon and honey. The bitter hop finish was very short, which gave the beer a nice crispness.
M: The beer was fairly think from a good level of carbonation, but the head was creamy while it lasted.
O: Overall, I really enjoyed this beer. It is perfect for the summer when it's hot outside. The balanced flavor combined with the crisp finish allow this beer to be equally refreshing and flavorful.

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.
