4.41/5 rDev +20.2%
Bottle supplied by the brewery.
I'm not sure why BA calls this a German pilsener; "Bohemian Pilsener" is right on the label.
Pours just about perfect: golden with a big bright white head.
Grass and grain aroma.
Nice bitterness in the flavor, with hints of fruit and bigger flavors of biscuit. Hint of sulphur.
Very smooth body.
Overall an excellent lager. Seek this one out.

12 oz bottle pours a mostly clear gold color with a frothy white head. Not a whole lot going on for retention and lace.
Nose is freshly crushed grains and herbal/floral hops. Low sweetness...fresh and crisp - just like a good pilsener.
Taste has biscuity, grainy malt that tastes really fresh and clean. The hops are a bit understated and could use a little boost, but has enough bitterness on the back to keep it in the dry realm. This is really good...might be the most simplistic of the ICON series, but also might be the tastiest too. Good stuff and a really good example of the style.

It's ok, but I'm not sure it is worthy of the Icon label. It has a lot of flavor for the light color. They should have introduced this in the summer to avoid competing with all of the dark and rich fall/winter brews. This is something to drink when mowing the lawn. It's definitely worth trying at least once.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pilsner.
A: Light golden hue. Tons of rising effervescence. Pours a 2 finger, frothy, white head. Craters very slowly. Sporadic yet persistent lacing.
S: Italian bread with a bit of soapy tone.
T: Light bready malt grains. Light crisp hop.
M: Light body, grainy character. Bready tone lingers on the palate throughout.
D: Sessionable but tasty.
Atmosphere is pretty good. Lots of rising effervescence, giant frothy head, and some fair persistent lacing. Bready nose. Bready flavor with a light hop. Overall, this is pretty good quaff.
