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.

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.
