3.88/5 rDev +6.9%
Chilled bottle into a glass. Bottled about 3 weeks ago.
A: Pours a clear, golden body with 1.5 fingers of off-white head. Retains well, leaving a few dribbles of lace as it collapses into a collar.
S: Floral and crackery; mild spice and a touch of fresh-baked bread.
T: This has a nice malt presence; bread and cracker come through, and the hops produce both a light bitterness as well as abundant flavor on the back end. Finish is clean with no lingering oils. I expected some DMS per the style (see Reality Czech), but this is quite a bit cleaner and I'm happy to have that.
M: Light-bodied; it's not quite crisp (the finish lingers a few seconds too long), but it's still quite clean.
O: Good value; I almost wish it were a bit lower in ABV so I could throw back a couple a night, but I'm fine with it. This is a great post-workout beer.

3.53/5 rDev -2.8%
A: This poured a clear light gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like bready and earthy caramel malt, with a little lemon hops.
T: It tasted like earthy lemon and grassy hops, with bready yeast and light caramel malt. It had a mostly clean and mild bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was slightly thick with lots of carbonation. Pretty fizzy body.
D: This was not a bad pils, but really nothing exciting. The scent and taste were fairly appropriate, and the body was ok. The finish was smooth enough, so it was pretty easy to drink. Only worth a tick.
