This was a very fresh beer, it had been bottled less than a month ago.
Nice choppy head which diminished slowly and left nice lacing. It was a deep golden brass color.
It smelled sweet and malty with a slight grassy hoppy under tone
Taste went from a sharp clean hop bitterness to a full malty round mouth feel, but then finished dry and a little harsh.
This is a nice beer in its look and aroma. It is unfortunate that although it started well it finished rather harshly which really unbalanced the beer and sullied what was a very promising Czech Pilsner.

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is grassy, malty, some sweetness. Taste is crisp, grassy hops, some malts, a bit dry at the finish, not quite as flavorful as the smell would have indicated. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

bottled on 11.11.2013
Appearance - clear golden body with white head
Smell - grass, buttered biscuit, grain, slight amount of honey sweetness
Taste - grass, herbs, buttered biscuits, grains, that hint of honey sweetness
Mouthfeel - lighter end of the medium bodied spectrum, medium carbonation, crisp, clean, smooth finish, decent amount of hop bite on the tail end of the finish
Overall - very crisp and clean, unobtrusive beverage that I found to be refreshing. Perfect for when you need that post yard work re-hydration. Would love to try this fresh on tap.
Price Point - $2.50/16.9 oz bottle

Pours a clear golden orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of intense skunk that eventually dissipates somewhat, malt, grain, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but the initial skunk aroma coming from the bottle is quite potent and never quite goes away.

Random buy from Bevmo. Poured into a pilsner glass.
A: Aggressive pour leads to two fingers bleached head. Beer is a fairly rich golden. Good amount of carbonation, racing to the surface. Moderate to good head retention. Moderate lacing. Looks good so far.
S: Crackery malts. Slightly salty. Very grassy and slightly floral. Noble hops, but not overly powerful. Nice balance.
T: Muted a bit in the flavor. Green grape on the end. Has a strange astringent streak that runs through in the end. Synthetic, plastic flavor. Very, very dry. Displeasingly dry, almost. Malt just falls out and the strange synthetic flavor dominates from the mid point on. Splashes of diacetyl and a strange, overbearing bitterness on the aftertaste.
M: Very dry. Vigorously carbonated, but not overly so. Enjoyable.
O: Very good in every category except the one that truly counts; taste! Looks great, smells great, feels great, tastes...I don't know how to describe it. It's like an astringent plastic. Bad bottle, maybe? Everything else was so good.

The beer comes in a dark amber color with a fluffy white head.
The aroma has lager yeast, a spicy hop quality, a grainy quality.
The flavor is very spicy in the front of pepper and herbal qualities. Green grass throughout with drying qualities on the back. There’s a bit of sweetness in the middle along with a touch of a bready malt.
The back carries much drying and hints of herbal and grassy bitterness.
A decent representation of the style, but I imagine that this bottle being 6 months old has caused it to lose some of hop qualities.
