Pours a half-finger of grey-tan head over a brilliant ruby-brown liquid. Smells honey, nut, brown malt, woody hop, esters of raisin and tamarind.

Tastes lovely. Wet supporting nut, caramel, iron, and a dusting of chocolate. Esters are honey wax, apricot, and mild pineapple. Hop flavor is woody with a bit of oranges. Hop bitter is clean and much higher than I'd expect for the style. The hop bitter combines with the carbonation to make a nice spicy/metalic zip at the end (like you'd expect in a czech pils). Dusty hop and malt flavor in the aftertaste. Nice carbonation level to clean just enough sweet from the mouth.

A delicious beer to help wash away the semester, as I sit here having just turned in final grades.
