Served from tap into a shaker. Poured golden yellow with one finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, bread, wheat, grain, and spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, grain, wheat, bread, and spice. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly decent brew. While this one definitely had quite a few flavors that one would expect from the style it just felt like it didn’t really have anything above and beyond that. While this fact made it quite easy to drink, it didn’t make it very enjoyable unfortunately. If you are a fan of traditional brews from this style, this one might be right up your alley though. I prefer for my palate to be challenged though, thusly why I say that. Worth your time is you are a fan of the traditional style, but that is about it.

Light golden hued with nearly no head at all. Exceptional clarity. Aroma is faintly of light pilsner malt and somewhat of a saltine cracker. The mouth is light and refreshing. The flavor is light pilsner malt and faint bittering hops. The finish comes off as salty due to the lasting hop bite.

On tap at Engine 15. So-so drinking beer. No aroma. Light yellow with a lace sheet. Bland though a dry lightly hopped finish was pleasant.
Average beer overall. Formerly called Fizzy Yellow Beer. 35 IBU. More that than a true Czech Pilsner in terms of taste.

Served on-tap at Rattle N Hum in New York, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear medium yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation and some lemon + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a little more than a half finger tall sudsy white head that reduces to a thin film covering about half of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to heavy amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of slightly sweet malts with a touch of cereal grain and light to moderate aromas of grassy hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of cereal grain malts with a touch of sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of grassy hops. Moderate amounts of bitterness that linger for a short while.

M: Medium bodied with just shy of moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Enjoyable and refreshing of a warm spring afternoon, light enough to be sessionable. Matched well with the meaty shepherd's pie I had for a late lunch.
