2.91/5 rDev -14.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3
A: Pours a clear, pale yellow with a thin white head that dissipates very quickly.
S: Aromas of grain, minerals, rosewater, herbs, grass, honey, and lemon are present on the nose.
T: Notes of minerals, lemon, herbs, grass, grain, honey, and rosewater wash across the palate. The finish is clipped with lemon, herb, grass, and mineral notes.
M: Medium-to-full in body, waxy, and a bit stickier than expected. Carbonation is very prickly. As beers of this type go, this is far from easy to drink. Unexpectedly filling and bloating for the style.
O: This beer has done little to convince me that American craft brewers handle European lagers well. Compared to many of the Czech classics, this lager is sorely lacking. Everything about it is just a little off. Although it is not bad really, the aromas and flavors displayed by this beer are too simple and too straight-forward and the carbonation is far too forceful. There is not a lot of depth, complexity, or subtlety here and the whole package is a bit too unrefined for my liking. Again, it is not really that bad, but it does seem a bit dumbed down compared to the beers it tries to emulate.

3.4/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Light golden straw color. Sudsy head with blanketed surface and decent lace.
Crispy golden lager malts with a slight yeast presence. Sweeter grassiness with thin Euro hop mossy aromas. Pale nose with that pilsner identity keeping it classy.
Half Czech Pils, half pale Euro lager. Hard to trace grassiness, sweet maltiness, dry finish with only mild bitterness. A little watery, needs spunkiness. Hops are muted in the middle, but come with minty pine linger in the tailend. Easy to manage in the beginning with a wet and thinned-out body, but finishes with some crackle and pop. Carbonation is a bit lower than standard fare.
Hardly anything extraordinary. A mundane pils that slights the style a bit. Drinks fine, but it's passable. 3.5
Serving type: on-tap
