look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Poured from a 500ml brown bottle with no date code. Served in a pilsener glass.
A: Clear, golden color with a white head 4 fingers high that had a nice amount of lacing. Lots of bubbles streaming from the bottom of the glass.
S: Crisp and floral hop aromas are dominant, with a citrus or lemony character. Very little in malt aromas, but there is a touch of malt sweetness smell.
T: Taste was clean and mainly about the mild hop bitterness. Something also had a souring aspect that was unpleasant.
M: Mouthfeel was a light bodied beer, with a medium amount of carbonation. Dry finish with a lingering bitterness.
D: I wasn't too impressed by this pilsener. The off-tasting sourness didn't leave me wanting another.

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.
