12 oz. bottle into a pils glass
Pours a clear golden color with a one and a half inch white head. It falls to a cap which retains well and leaves some moderate lacing.
Aroma is grainy overall with a bit of toasty and bready malt character. A hefty amount of noble hop aroma as well, very grassy and herbal.
Taste is mildly sweet up front with bready and toasty malt character again coming through. Balanced perfectly with a big grassy, floral Saaz hop character that works perfectly.
Mouthfeel is medium-light in body, nice crisp but creamy carbonation that's just right for the style. Extremely drinkable.
This is one hell of a Czech Pils, easily one of the best that I've had. Probably doesn't hurt that it's fresher than any of the imported Czech ones available here.
