look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Moderate head, but it settles slowly with some decent lumps. Some streaky lace. Light golden color with a continual series of fine bubbles working upward. Hazy.

Light, frothy raw grain barley aroma. Some malt is present. There's the lightest of hops in the mix. Very true to style.

Far more hoppy in the taste than in the smell. Grainy start but it fades rapidly to the bittering hop. The body is not quite as light as most pilsners. Long, bitter aftertaste. Refreshing.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a golden yellow color with a fingers worth of head that fades to a nice cap within a few minutes

S: Mostly some pilsner malts that provide some sweetness and light bready notes along with a light herbal and earthy hop character

T: Starts out with a little bit of fruitiness along with the pilsner malt, which again provides a light sweetness and some bready notes. The hops come in near the finish and balance everything out with some herbal notes

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid czech pils with plenty of pilsner taste from the malts. The hops round everything out nicely, and provide some balance. Definitely worth the $4 price tag

A - Poured 22oz bomber into a pilsner glass. Golden with slight haze.

S - light biscuit, grass

T - Malt up front, balanced in the middle some hops, residual sweetness with staying power

M - Typical carbonation for the style, light body but thick enough to let you know you're actually drinking a beer.

O - Excellent pilsner - or course since so many of us have BMC to thank for our intro to pilsner style beers, this beer benefits from the poor comparison. Regardless, I'm a big fan of all Berkshire products and I would definitely try this one again especially during the warm summer months.
