A - Dark yellow color. Nice white head. Hardly any lacing.
S - Had a bit of a skunky smell to it. Little hoppy with some grass smell. A bit of lemon and floral notes.
T - It's a typical pilsner. Take that with a grain of salt, I said typical. I didn't say good. It's... average. A bit grassy on the taste. Nothing really jumps out at you. The taste doesn't leave you disappointed, but it definitely leaves you wishing it tasted better. It's just really simple and standard. Not bad though.
M - Medium bodied with low carbonation. It's what you would expect just by looking at this beer or knowing it was a pils.
D - The best thing about this beer is you could drink a couple of them easily. I'm not saying you'd actually want to or like to drink a couple, but it's very very easy to drink.
The beer didn't jump out and grab me.
Again, it wasn't bad, but it just dind't do it for me.
Very average on all levels.

500 ml bottle poured into pilsener glass. Suprised to find this at the "3rd best" beer store in my area, after never seeing it at the other too. Am a fan of Czech Pilseners, so I tried it.
A - Pours a dim peach-orange color with some haze. Not much of a head. Large amounts of carbonation rising from the bottom. Not a bad looking beer.
S - Malt, and very unique for a pilsener, some peach, apricot, and even a bit of lime. Very unique.
T - Smooth maltiness, and the fruitness mentioned in the aroma's is there, too. Very unique. Lot's of peach (and not in an artificial, nasty way) and apricot. Finishes smooth with a nice flavor.
F - Very crisp and clean, leaves just a bit of dryness. Could certainly session this beer.
O - Nothing outstanding, but it's a good pilsener. One of the more unique pilsener's I've tried, considering the light fruity flavors. Light and crisp but plenty of flavor. Again, not outstanding, but a good pilsener.
