12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear gold, with a couple fingers of foamy bright-white head. This retains with a smooth and thick finger, leaving back a sudsy cascade of lacing which quickly slides down the sides of the glass. The aroma smells leafy and spicy, with a sweet grainy feel across the back. This has a pleasant feeling fresh airiness to it.

The taste has a leafy citric to bite to it, which is set against sweet and lightly toasted grains and finishing fairly dry and spicy. This is pretty tight and clean in the mouth, with the malts in particular pushing back nicely against the hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with more of a softer and bubbly feeling carbonation that then tightens up on the tongue. This has enough crispness to it while still staying smooth enough in the mouth.

This was definitely a decent take on a Czech Pils, with a crisp spicy bite that leaves an impression and this overall being clean and smooth feeling on the palate. I’d drink another.

12oz bottle into tulip snifter.

Pours a clear yellow, with a foamy white head.

The aroma is of grassy hops, with some very light floral and spicey hop notes as well.

The taste follows the nose, with clean grassy hops and a light bread, malt base.

A medium body for the style, with appropriate, slightly fizzy carbonation and a clean, crisp finish.

A well done pilsener, fairly subtle flavors, but easy drinking and enjoyable.
