Got a sixer on a friend’s recommendation, and I couldn’t be more conflicted. Everyone other one has been highly drinkable or borderline poor. The diehards will say you can’t get a good pils here, that the only place it’s good enough and fresh enough is Eastern Europe. I won’t concede that they’re right, even if this is a pint in their favor.
STYLE: Czech Pilsner
LOOK: Clear gold, easily one of the most transparent beverages I’ve ever seen. I wasn’t able to generate a head, but it was interesting to see bubbles cling to the outside rather than rush up the middle, tornado style.
NOSE: Pizza dough, buttered corn stalks, unpopped popcorn.
MOUTH: Daring to be unimaginative. Canned vegetables, mostly corn water, which speaks more to the lack of freshness than the taste. I feel like I just drank a single blade of grass. It’s difficult to drink slowly, so thin and light. The style, I know. But there has to be more to do it for me. A little white pepper on the finish helps.

Poured out of a growler into a pint glass.
Pours a crystal clear straw yellow with a one finger white head. Really not very good head retention or lacing. But I really like the clarity.
Aroma of floral noble hops with just a little bit of bready malt thrown in. A little bit of a weak aroma and really just not much going on.
The flavor is also a little bit boring. The hops are more prominent with floral and earthy notes along with a moderate assertive bitterness. Some bready malt but it somewhat remains in the background. A light mouthfeel with a very slightly sticky finish and lingering bitterness.
Overall, a good thirst quencher but somewhat lacking for a Pilsner. Doesn't stand up well to many of its European counterparts.
Serving type: growler
