2.81/5 rDev -7.6%
The nose does show some Saaz hop character, as well as a light doughy malt backdrop. It's all so slight, though, and could stand to be a little stronger. It falters even more on the palate, where the hops mostly show up as a clean bitterness. The malt becomes more toasty than it promised at first. They do get some things right, it's definitely a clean beer and nothing becomes annoying or cloying, but there is just a lack of complexity that ultimately dooms it to also-ran status. It's really only about toasty malt and lingering bitterness in the finish, and that gets too monotonous by the end of the bottle.

A nice soaring head of white crowned this beer after the pour. The color is a very pale golden straw color. That beautiful head doesn't stick, nor stay.
Smells like barley, corn, and Euro must. Has that Danish lager appeal, like Heineken. Perhaps, a little sweeter, but not offensively so. Lager grains, slight honey, and yeasty fruit.
Drinks a lot like the nose smells. Fruit rot, lagery grains, corn syrup, backend bitterness, and a generic sweet/stale carry-through. Has a note of light green apple and faint caraway. Some fusel and mintiness. The body has a decent shape, but it's not a game-changer. Carbonated averagely. Better than your average Euro Lager, but that's not saying too much. Especially, because it's listed as a Czech Pils.

Pale straw colour, big white head, foamy and unhealthy looking.
Skunk smell from a distance, bit of grain, low hops.
Sweet malts, grains, bit of corn and honey, but skunked and big metallic bitterness in the finish.
Light body, very fizzy.
Bad, a gas station lager.
