Served on-tap at Bukowski Tavern in Boston, MA

A: Pours a crystal clear pale to medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy white head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts with light aromas of grassy, floral, and slightly spicy hops. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which linger slightly.

T: Light to moderate flavors of bready malts with lighter flavors of grassy, floral, and spicy hops.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: This is a very enjoyable, very easy to drink, refreshing beer which is great for the spring/summer. Almost sessionable (just a touch too high an ABV to be really sessionable for me). Definitely would get this one again.

22 ounce bomber, split with a couple pals, poured into a wine glass.

Appearance is straw yellow with one finger of a white head. This Czech Pils has an aroma with biscuit, malt, some sugar. A fairly basic smell, but a little better than average. Tipping it back and I taste malts, some hops, quite a bit of bread. The mouthfeel here is great, very low-key and crisp. It has perfect carbonation and finishes very clean. Over the years, I grab a bomber from these guys once in a blue moon. And this was a good choice and it went very well with the spicy food that I had for dinner alongside it.

Poured from bomber into pint glass

Appearance – The beer was poured a medium golden color with a big thick just lightly off white head. The head had decent retention, eventually fading to give a moderate level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of malt. It has a bready and biscuity smell. Mixed with these malts is also some floral, grassy and light citrus hop aromas.

Taste – The taste begins with a dry malt flavor. Towards the middle there is some citrus that comes to the tongue. Any sweetness that was present in the start (which was quite light) is now largely gone. At the end there is a floral and grassy hop flavor which combined with the malt base to leave a slightly bitter and dry flavor to be left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The beers body is rather average as well as its carbonation level.

Overall – It had a decent flavor and aroma, but was nothing too special. It was rather simple and lacked much complexity. Good for a easier drinking brew, but nothing to really go out of your way for.

Darker golden slightly hazy body. Fizzy looking white head. Very thin lace throughout the session but lasting.

Nose is big floral. Weak Saaz hops. A slight, almost undetectable skunkiness.

Taste is very good. Wonderful light malted backbone. Nice grassiness that is not overwhelming as some others of this style
sometimes are. Strong enough hop profile, not very spicy but still complex enough to be interesting.

A close to excellent American made Bohemian pilsner. Definitely will pick this up again.
