On tap at Portside in Port Jefferson, NY. Served in a pint glass.
Look: light gold body, thin white head, decent retention and lacing. Looks like a pils.
Smell: hoppy citrus zest, fresh grass, and pilsner malt.
Taste: a little too sweet for a pilsner. Malty body with some grassy, citrusy hops. Its not as dry as I would've liked and the malt is too forward.
Feel: light bodied, easy drinking, crisp carbonation, refreshing on a hot day and could be something you'd session if it wasn't 6.2% ABV, which seems high for a pils.
Overall: this is okay but calling it a Czech Pilsener seems misleading. It tastes like an American pale lager, so don't buy this thinking you're getting an authentic Czech Pils. Cheers!
Serving type: on-tap

Sampling right now on 7/21/14. Bottles chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a tall weissber vase glass. Alcohol content is right at 6% (ABV).
Pours a bright pale gold in color with a good 2-finger white foamy head that lasts a good while. Lots of lacing is seen, some in rings even. A good amount of bubbles streaming up from the bottle of the glass. The aroma is mostly of malt and yeast. Much more going on with the taste as it is hard to pin point besides the malt and yeast. Starts out sweet then ends with a slight bitter finish. Not to hoppy though. Crisp and full-bodied. Overall, not a bad brew at all!

12oz bottle served in a pint glass
Bright pale gold in the glass with a frothy head of large bubbles. The smell is very malty and a bit yeasty for not at all the bright clean aromas that I'd expect from a pils. Giving it another sniff reveals a bit of grassy hop but nothing all that distinct or punchy. I have no idea what's going on in the taste of this one. Very malty with a lot of caramels and biscuit flavors overall a bit sweet with only a touch of bitterness from a bland hoppiness that barely serves. I find that I'm having a hard time getting over how sweet this beer is, however, the sweetness does fade in the finish which is rounded out by some bitterness that lingers for a few seconds. Generally this beer is a little slick and probably not carbonated enough for the style although it could just be weighed down by everything else going on in there. Overall its ok, but I can't say that I'd recommend it.
