3.4/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap poured into an 8oz glass.

Pours a very light and clear yellow Color with a small white head and some light white lacing. Nose is very light, slightly malty but very nondescript.

Taste is lightly sweet and malty, but overall its your standard Czechpils, however it just doesn't stand up to any of the real ones in Prague. Mouthfeel is a bit too light with a, on of carbonation.

Serving type: on-tap

A - The color is a nice pure yellow a touch deeper than most Pilsner's and a nice inch of pure white foam.

S - Smells pretty good for a pilsner it's a bit of corn and malt with a nice level of bitter.

T - I really enjoy the sweetness in this one crisp in flavor with a touch of corn and yeast. Better than it sounds with a good finish of bittering hops.

M - Light to medium easy to drink after that sour.

Overall maybe it's me but this company makes a great Pilsner especially after trying a good sour!

3.9/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from brown 12oz bottle to a pilsner glass. No dates found.

A - Impressive 2 finger white bubbly head. Beer pours a golden yellow clear color. Good retention and lacing.

S - I was less impressed with the aroma as the yeast character was a bit too prevelant for the style though the light floral hop tones are nice as well as a nice toasted pilsner grain character.

T - Better than the nose. The beer is crisp from the get go. Nice. A nice toasted and pilsner malt character with a mild bitterness. More pleasant flavor than I anticipated. Floral and crisp and clean.

M - Crisp and light bodied with good carbonation.

O - Overall, a very good pilsner. I liked the flavor and crisp flavor that wasn't dominated by too much malt. Well balanced.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

3.18/5  rDev -12.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz poured into pint glass.

A: Color is clear dark gold. One finger head quickly dissipates into a thin film covering the top of the beer. Lacing is okay.

S: Smell is muted grass, hay, flowers, and a bit of citrus. The smell isn't really too strong.

T: Not too much going on with the taste. It's mostly bread and butter malts with a peak of crisp green apple and grass in the middle, then it fades into more bread. Aftertaste is practically non-existent.

M: Really easy drinking and creamy. This beer nails that aspect of the style.

O: Needs to be more bitter, cleaner, and a bit drier. The head is also more lacking than I'd prefer for the style. The color and mouthfeel is very nice, but the nose and taste need a bit of work. Overall decent beer, though.
