Appearance: Translucent golden blonde, with almost a greenish hue. The fizzy cloud of head calmed down quickly, but from start to finish tiny effervescent bubbles seemed to come out of the bottom of my glass, like a champagne.

Smell: Freshly cut grass Saaz. This is what a lager is supposed to smell.

Taste: Not very malty, but the herbal hop finish has just enough bite to make you come back for more. Light mouthfeel, but still refreshing and enjoyable, when you're in a lager mood, which happens to me from time to time.

Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into a Guinness Pint Glass

A-straw-like yellow, inviting classic lager

S-bright, fresh, (seems again) inviting

T-good, biscuit, bread is right-on, also brightness comes through

M-good, a bit chewy, but (again) inviting

D-Very session-able, nothing uninviting here

Had this on tap at a chinese restaurant in Prague. Served in a pils glass, cool.

A-clear golden yellow body and a thick white cap of a head.

S-metallic, clean and floral.

T-sweet grain and cereal front, light cleansing hop finish.

M-light,

D-good but really lacks character and depth. Refreshing, nothing off in the flavor department, but I think there are better choices out there.

12 oz. bottle with a best by date of 04/2005. pours a clear straw color and a small head. Has a yeasty, bready, spicy smell. Faintly sweet, mostly grainy yeasty flavor. Bubbly but thin mouthfeel. Has a faint hop, grain flavor to finish.
Way better than the beer that hijacked this brewerys name.
