Now this is more like it. Pours an unbelievably clear and bright yellow with a thin white head.
Smells faintly of malts with some light sulfur notes, and floral hops
Taste is all hops, but it's not big and flambouyant like west coast beers. Lots of refined european hops with no dry hop character at all. It's very floral - almost like potpourri - and slightly earthy with an almost wintergreen-like spiciness to it.
Mouthfeel is a perfect balance - satisfying, but still dry and crisp at the end, balancing hoppy bitterness with hop flavour.
I think this is my new benchmark for what a czech pils ought to be.
