It comes in a clear yellow pilsner color.

There is a decent amount of hops in the aroma with much skunk.

The flavor is very Czech pilsner. There's that saaz hops flavor with a dry finish.

So far, this is the best Czech pilsner from the US I've had. It's very close to the real thing. It misses a bit of warmness, complexity, and stankiness, but it's very very close. Lovely beer.

I really enjoyed this pilsner, it definitely looks like a lighter beer and isn't impressive at first.

Smells clean and crisp. Slight malty and hop note with cereal notes.

Taste is great, the clove, malty notes slide to the slight hoppy. Ends with a subdued toasted cereal note. Everything about this beer is balanced and subtle.

Mouthfeel is sharp and slightly dry.

Overall this is a pilsner I wish was bottled.

Type: Draft
Glass: 0.5L (16.9 oz.) glass
From: Blind Lady Ale House in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $4.00 (with progressive Friday)
Purchased: Feb. 21, 2014
Consumed: Feb. 21, 2014
Misc.: N/A

Poured a golden yellow hazy color with three fingers of frothy white head. Lots of layered foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Good retention all the way down.

Smelled cereal, sourdough bread, honey, grassy hops, wheat, corn, bubblegum, light citrus and lemon.

Tasted similar to the nose, but a bit stronger. Fairly dry malts. Honey, sourdough, bread, grass, corn and faint booziness.

Light body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Semi-abrupt finish.

This was a very good pilsner. I’d have it again for sure if I was in the mood.

Served in a tasting glass at the brewery.

Pale, some head, no lace.

Fruity and lagered.

Incredible! One of the best lagers I've encountered. Very fruity without being bitter, and a nice chewy body. Full and delicious.

Overall, highly recommended to EVERYONE.
