Poured into a pint mug. I like the nice ochre yellow color of the beer, the head was decent, the lacing was nice, it had a malty aroma and subdue notes of hops. The first sip was pleasant to the taste buds, the beer is not fizzy; but has nice mouth feel and taste. I can drink lots of it and it is by no means a lawnmower beer....and remember folks, drink beer and support your local brewery. HOG

Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grassy aromas. There is also a distinct honey-like aroma that comes out as the beer warms up. Taste is much the same with sweet malt and grassy 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 and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is fairly basic but tasty.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The actual name of this is Cross Czech Pils. Sampled on July 22, 2013. Living in New Hampshire I expect this one was brewed at the Red Hook Brewery in Portsmouth.
Very typical looking pilsener pour with straw yellow color and big burst of white head that settles down a lot quicker than I am used to for the style.
The aroma is something else. I expect grain and grass but got that and more. There's yeast, toasted bread, and butter, and something incredibly interesting that may be rooted in the yeast.
Body is light to medium.
The taste is like the aroma. It has a little something special that I have never encountered in a pilsner and I liked it. It was a kind of toasted bread and butter thing with a biscuit and boiled potato richness and a low lingering bitterness at the end. I am stumped at finding a description. I have never had anything quite like it and for that alone it deserves a higher mark. I will be buying this one more often.
