This is my first Czech beer. What a nice, smooth sail.
The initial smell for me was "O...there is a baby skunk hiding in the rose bush!" On further processing, I deem it a pleasantly strong herbal smell (much like a "greenery" smell) with a floral note.
The soft-pale yellow color is topped off with an ample amount of white head. Upon drinking, the cling factor was high.
The character of this lager is assertive, but not overbearing. It has a crisp taste, a mild to medium malt that enhances the ability to appreciate the hops. The hops bring a lime-citrus flavor with a slight tin-like aftertaste. The finish is that of orange juice pulp. Rather user-friendly.
I wish I bought a 500ml bottle instead of the 12 oz. bottle. :)

Pale gold with a vanishingly brief head.
Aroma of vegetal, grassy hops and doughy pale malt.
Crisp, off-dry and slightly tart, with brisk grassy noble hops over a soft crackery pils malt base. Clean, simple, and refreshing, with no flaws. Very slight hint of sulfur in the background.
Feather-light and almost watery, emphasis here is on drinkability.
Overall, a fine quaffable pilsner. Apparently over-hyped, perhaps owing to its name conflict with the fizzy American swill, but leaving all that aside it's still a quite nice pale lager in its own right.
