A yellow color beer of the darker variety. The head is virgin white, a nice touch. Its about 1" deep. Good retention, average lacing. Mild skunkiness in the aroma, zesty hop presence, this is what I'm looking for in a czech pilsner, skunkiness is not always a flaw, and I think it works well here.

Taste has a light body with ample bitterness. Carbonation is high, as should be for style. Plenty grassy in the taste and mouthfeel throughout the entire drinking experience. This used to be a lesser version of Pilsner Urquell for me, but it seems in recent history, they have pulled about even. Used to see this at Trader Joe's, it seems to have gotten more difficult to locate in the states in recent years. Finishes a little dry, metallic bittery, floral.
The mustiness within the beer is kind of cool.

Light but flavorful be thy name. Isn't going to change the way you think about pilsners, but it is a good experience in the warmer months.

One of the Wednesday Night Trivia crew was recently over in the Czech Republic for work and brought back some CANs for me. Once again, it pays to advertise and my thanks to Rod Shenk for the gift(s).

From the CAN: "Best beer in the whole of Moravia"; "Tenor is the secret of good souls"; "Crisp, mildly bitter taste".

The Crack revealed another brimful CAN and I went with an inverted Glug which netted a finger of fizzy bone-white head with limited retention. Color was a deep golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity and now Midas and Croesus were openly weeping in envy. Nose was redolent with snappy, grassy Saaz hops and I was in heaven. Nothing wrong with German Pils, per se, but give me a Czech Pils and I am sent. The intense carbonation rendered it very fizzy and cleansing on the tongue. I felt the old, tired taste buds being stripped away in its wake. The taste was quite clean, very grassy and refreshing. The finish was bone dry, just the way I prefer my Czech Pilsners. Man, this was probably going to be the winner of the lot! I could drink this pretty regularly.
