4.01/5 rDev +9.9%
clean golden color, tons of visible carbonation, 2 fingers of fluffy white head which dissipated to a nice 1/8" while releasing some great lacing along the glass. a pilsner malt aroma, sweet bready scent, lemongrass.. just smells really refreshing. a subtle bitterness up front followed by a nice sweetness from the malt and finishes with a biscuity, bread-like flavor from the yeast. an extremely refreshing beer for hot exhausting days like today. light body with high carbonation and a very crisp finish.
i feel like i'm giving this a bit high of a rating for a beer of its style, but it definitely is worthy of it as far as pilsners go.

Beer pours a straw colored yellow with a white foamy head that leaves wonderfully gobs of lacing along the walls of my empty glass. Nice grassy funky hop scent with a hint of dough in the nose.
The beer is very fresh and clean tasting with the expected Saaz hops that provide a wonderful clean spicy character to plays of the bread like malts well. Thebeer is well carbonated with a lighter body. All around excellent example of the style and fantastic summer beer.

Golden yellow in color with a slight chill haze. Poured with a bright white fizzy foam that quickly dissipated. Earthy floral hop aromas with buttery, biscuit malt beneath. Medium bodied with light but assertive carbonation. Very crisp and refreshing feel. Floral hop flavors up front with a biscuit malt backbone. Tangy, lightly spicy hop bite through the middle. Malt character is overcome by floral hoppiness at the finish as this finishes crisp and clean. An awesome summertime beer.

A-pale yellow with lack of head. Very bubbly.
S-almost lack of scent with just a hint of light grains. Not much here
T-comes in with a very nice, crisp flavor of grassy grains with a slight bitterness. Great matching after-taste.
M-medium crisp carbonation with a nice creamy finish
O-this is a perfect summer day beer. Has a great flavor true to its roots. Could be from Europe.

On tap @ the brewery. Clear gold with a rich white head. Robust spotty lacing. Smells floral and fairly spicy with a pronounced tart citrus aspect. The taste has a fresh grassy bitterness with a moderate spiciness that hangs in the finish. Tart lemon with a tight neutral backing graininess. The mouthfeel is lighter bodied with a clean and crisp presence in the mouth. This Czech Pils is on the lighter side but still extremely tasty and refreshing. Perfect for summer.

Had this in a growler from Joe Canals. Pours a yellowish straw color. Smells like a light lager, if you follow. Tastes faintly of hops, very light and refreshing. Mouthfeel also light. This is exactly what I wanted on an early summer day. This one won't blow you away, but if you're looking for a sessionable lager, this is a good one.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a clear golden straw color with a fizzy one finger white head. The head fades rather rapidly leaving a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is a mix of some biscuit and a bit of lemon and earthiness. Along with these smells are some lighter notes of grain and some caramel sweetness.
Taste – The taste starts out with a blend of a biscuit malt and a bit of caramel sweetness. As the taste advances a small amount of a pear and apricot fruit flavor join the taste sweetening the brew ever so slightly with a little bit of a grapefruit hop coming along to balance out the aforementioned increase in sweetness. A tiny bit of a yeast and spice and some grassy hop join the flavors at the end to leave a clean and crisp taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the thinner side overall with a carbonation level that was average to slightly above average. Both were quite appropriate for the style and made for a rather refreshing brew overall.
Overall – Quite easy drinking and rather refreshing. Nothing too out of the ordinary but nice none the less.

Tap at deep ellum
Nice foamy 2 Finger head in the tall mug, fades at a med pace, nice foamy lacing, crystal clear golden watery pilsner color.
Nose nice pilsner malt, grainy slight dough, toasty, wet hay and light straw, hint of grassy hop character, nice noble hop character though.
Taste nice crisp pilsner, light straw and dusty grain, toasty, little bready, hay and light must, with a hint of sulfur and mineral flavor like the water wasn't quite right for this beer. Mild grassy hops, way too light on the hops, little grassy noble hop. Bit of fruity flavor too, unwanted fruity. Finish is dry little straw and hint of hop, mostly gone though.
Mouth is light, decent carb, little watery.
Overall not impressed. Not a typical victory beer.
