4.03/5 rDev +4.7%
16 ounce can, no freshness date.
The can pours with a white, two finger head that quickly dissipates to a thin film. Color is golden yellow straw with a slight haze.
Aroma is very earthy with notes of bread, cracker, grass and hay, slight spiciness and yeast shows up on the back end.
Taste generally follows the nose with the grain taking center stage. Spicy hops really clean the palate off.
Mouthfeel is super crisp and carbonation is on point.
Overall, this is an excellent pilsner and is great for summer. This was my first Czech Pilsner and definitely set the bar pretty high.

16 ounce can into lager glass, no canning date. Pours fairly crystal clear bright golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange zest, pear, cracker, bread, pepper, light pine, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of hop, malt, yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange zest, pear, cracker, bread, pepper, pine, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of spicy pepper/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange zest, pear, cracker, bread, pepper, pine, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with a very crisp malt/bitterness balance and minimal cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Czech pilsner style! All around good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; and extremely crisp and smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
