Easily the best domestic example of a Czech Pils I've ever had.

A: Only place it gets dinged. Straw color with a bit of haze.

S: Sweet grains. Cream. Light spice. Floral. Balance between hops and Pilsner malt. Delicate yet still stands on its own.

T: Rush of sweet pilsner character. Ritz crackers. Floral hops follow. Yum.

M: Crisp. Refreshing. Exactly what you want.

O: See above. You can't really do better than this for the style.

Serving type: on-tap

This beer is a crystal clear, very light straw color with a small but dense head that persists well. Aroma is light, but the hops are beautifully floral, exactly the small one expects in the style. The taste as well is hop-dominated, floral, slightly herbal, with a nice high bitterness. Malt is detectable but not a major component. Light, dry finish.

A good quaffing beer!

I've had many lame, bland microbrewed lagers. I've had locally-brewed ones that I wanted to love and that I kept drinking--indeed, that I even recommended to others--despite my better judgement.

This is not that sort of lager. Zomer Pils is actually awesome.

It looks the part: a fizzy yellow lager. Floral hops dominate the nose. Bottoms up and the proof is in the pudding: a bold, distinctive hop presence in counterpoint with honeyed malt notes. Carbonation level is perfect. There are zero esters or any other sort of fermentation flaws.

It tastes like an import.

If they don't serve Zomer Pils down in West, TX or other towns in Czech-Texan country, I am certain that they will. This is the sort of beer that makes one proud to live where it is brewed.

A - Beautiful light golden color with a big thick frothy head that clings to the side of the glass.

S - Smell is a little wanting. Not much there. Honestly, smells like an adjunct lager.

T - Slight bitterness up front. Finishes without much of a punch at all. A little bit of the malt sinks in near the end, but there's almost nothing in the middle.

M - Slick flow on the tongue. The carbonation creates a nice padding.

O - While I've really enjoyed a lot of Lakewood's other offerings, I feel like this is a tad mailed-in. I would drink it again if the options were few and far between. Not a great example of the Czech style.
