Canned On: 03/04/2014

A: Fairly clear golden straw color w/ a half inch of white head.

S: Very heavy on the grain w/ hints of sweetness.

T: Follows the smell very closely. Yeast and other grains up front while the malt very slowly appears on the end and adds a slight sweetness to the finish.

F: Very crisp and light-bodied upfront due to the carbonation which then trends towards a slightly heavier mouthfeel as the pale malts start to come through on the taste.

O: I would definitely buy more of this if I didn't have to drive to Texas to get it. I would like to try some that was a little more fresh though to see if the usual spice on the end of Czech Pils is actually present or not and to see how the hops change the taste/mouthfeel. Very enjoyable even as is though.

Canned On 01/23/15

A: Pours a clear yellow color with 2 fingers of head that slowly fades down to a nice thin cap

S: Clean lager yeast, graininess, and malts stand out with hints of grassy and lightly spicy hops in the back. Nice and straight-forward

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a bit of graininess and the pale malt, followed by hints of the clean yeast and light spiciness from the hops. Finishes with a very light bitterness and more of that "clean" taste

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A nice and easy drinking pilsner that is fairly straight-forward, which is the point. Nothing is going to blow your mind here, but it's a nice change of pace

Disclaimer: Poured from a 1 yr old can. Smelled like musty grains, Taste is average but builds into a honey flavor of some sort, it's not real crisp or refreshing though. Leaves me with a thick mouthfeel. I'll drink the rest ice cold.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. This brew is a nice straw color with a small white head. It has a gain and slight citrus flavor. This is an excellent summer time beer.

Sampling right now on 1/28/15. Comes in a 12 ounce can (355ml). Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage 10 ounce "Coor's glass.

Pours a lighter golden yellow in color with no head to speak of and same with lacing. The aroma is very faint and is of roasted malt and floral hops. The taste is...WOW! Really good and packed full of flavor with the roasted malt right up front with some sweetness, which is probably from the caramel malts in the mix as well. Very smooth and goes down easy. No harsh or biter aftertaste at all. Really surprised on this one! Medium-bodied with perfect lighter carbonation.

Really great taste, a little cloudy, lacking aroma; May be the best pilsener I have ever tasted.
