12 oz. bottle poured into pilsener

L: almost gold, a bit darker than many pilseners ... 100% crystal clear, and so effervescent ... looks like a scientific experiment going on in the glass! bubbles and bubbles and bubbles. tidy but thick white head of foam almost 1 inch that stays about 1/4-inch think because so much carbonation is still rising well after the pour; sticking and lacing with a huge collar of foam. perfect

S: biscuit malt, some grassy/spicy hops in back; some saltiness in there, almost bacon-like; as we get going, starts to take on some of the floral/peach/fruity notes you taste ... might be the tasting is affecting the smelling here, but it's nice either way

T: wow ... super sweet bread malt that's almost fruity (English pale ale-like) ... peach; very floral, but there's a definite black-pepper bite in there. it's just a tad watered-down from some of the best pilseners I've tried, and there's no big American-style hop bite here -- but, man, this is good stuff. has just a hint of butteriness like an English brown ale.

F: not as dry as you can get with the pilsener, just a bit juicier. a bit thin, but at 4.4% ABV, I'm willing to pass it all off as "very drinkable" ... and it is, loads of carbonation help fluff up the body

O: yet another solid installment in the pilsener family ... perhaps not my absolute favorite, but whereas some showcase more hops or more bite, this brew is a full-on fruity sweet version and would be a perfect gateway beer to the more bitter pilseners of the world. good brew!

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden color. The head is a finger high and eggshell in shade. The retention is quite poor and its texture is rough looking. Only a modicum of lacing is left on the glass.

S: Aromatically, it's rather dinky - not only is the hop profile muted, so is the malt backbone. There are some buttery touches; again, it's really faint. Its maltiness comes through more vividly once it opens up, but it's too little and too late.

T: Huh. This tastes cardboardy, there's no way around it. There are touches of grape around the middle and a mildly bitter finish - unfortunately it doesn't save it. I don't think it's super old, but it tastes pretty oxidized to me.

M: This is reasonably thick for only 4.4%. On the other hand, it isn't dry or crisp enough to go down effortlessly. Well carbonated, though, so it's not entirely undrinkable.

O: This one is meh city. Not only is it not what I want from the style, the cardboard taste kills it even further. With Pilsner Urquell so readily available, I see absolutely no reason to return to this.
