1.9 pint brown bottle poured into Brooklyn pokal.
A - a slightly hazy brazen color. a good forming head, bright white, that quickly thins down to a whispy layer on top.
S - a light smell of citrus, concentrating on orange peel, and some grain like sweetness.
T - bitter hops are right out front, while the faint grain/malty sweetness lingers in the back. the malts stick around for the finish and dominate that area of the tasting process, while the primary after taste is a bitter and cereal-like taste. not a very complicated beer, and the hops are not very prevalent. I haven't a clue as to why this was on the great beers display along with westmalle and samuel smith.
MF&D - the feel is slightly thicker and heavier than water, and the lack of carbonation makes the beer feel quite dull over all. I would preferably find another beer rather than have another one of these.

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.
