3.85/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Consumed 6/11 poured in to a pint glass

A: This beer pours a relatively clear, nice deep golden color with a one fringier of bone white, sudsy head. Head recedes relatively quickly leaving spider webbed lacing on the glass.

S: Nose is grassy, large bread notes, a bit of underlaying fruitiness, and just a touch of spice.

T: Taste is grain, bread and corn at the forefront. A grassy presence combs through in the middle with a touch of spicing. Finish is a very light malt flavoring with a granny smith apple flavoring that hangs in the finish.

M: Lighter side of medium body, medium carbonation, some girth to this for a pilsner with a slick finish.

O: Goes down easy, tasty, not too filling, mild kick, nice representation. The granny apple flavoring took me by surprise, in a pleasant way.

3.58/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Poured from a BBC bomber into a tulip glass. The beer is a beautiful hazy golden color. Nice light penetration. Nice carbonation. Good looking beer!

S - A little less here, sweet malts and a hint of grassy noble hops.

T - This one is pretty high on the sweeter maltiness and low on the grassy hop character that I associate with this style.

M - Medium-bodied, but nothing really interesting about it.

O - Not really impressed with this beer. After reading some of the other reviews I feel like I wasn't even drinking the same thing.

Best by 10/23/14. I assume probably brewed around April so less than two months old.

A: Pours a not-quite-clear golden amber. Good sized and very fizzy light tan head. Almost soda like for a moment. Head fades pretty fast as you can probably guess. Zero lacing at all but halfway decent retention.

S: Huh, nice. Lightly grassy with a nice sweet citrus aroma to boot. There is a nice sweet...melon in there too? It halfway reminds me of Midori (melon liquor). I really like it.

T: Again, grassy with melons and a crisp, tart lemon. Typical pilsner malt with a dry crackery flavor that's got an edge of sulfur. Nice sweet melony flavors balance the crisp pilsner character. Especially in the finish, that sharp bitter sulfur really hits with bitter orange peel and grass. Very dry finish.

M: Light/medium bodied, crisp and balanced.

O: Exceptionally tasty and balance pilsner. It has a nice sweet grainy and melony character that balances out the dry, bitter and crisp pilsner character that you normally expect. Drinkability is EXCEPTIONAL as a result. This may be the best czech pilsner I've ever had. Nearly perfect.

Served in a pilsner glass at Estelle's.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a clear pale yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles cowing up through the glass. Spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Pilsner malts, a little sweetness, and some grassy and herbal hops.

Taste: Same as above with some mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, refreshing, light bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Above average pilsner. Could be a bit more dry and less sweetness.

Serving type: on-tap
