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.

Poured this Czech style Pilsener from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. This Pilsener poured a clear golden color, produced an average white head and featured below average retention and left very little lacing on the glass. The aroma consisted off fresh baked bread, and grassy hops. Medium in body, this Pilsener had a base of malted husky malted grain, touch of lemon citrus, white pepper and bitter hops. Decent example of a Czech Pilsener, I believe this to be pretty authentic. Prost!

A- pours a golden straw color with a small white fizzy head and no lace.

S- some floral hop, clean grass, and sweet malt

T- clean malt with some yeast strain, floral hops and just a bit of lemongrass

M- light-med body, low-med carbonation, foamy mouthfeel, a bit of yeasty chalkiness in the finish

O- this one is clean and drinkable, nothing special but not bad.
