3.58/5  rDev 0%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

An undeniably European flare to this "bright lager beer" as the bottle refers to itself...

Poured fine, nothing remarkable...normal...a clear, golden body...bits of bubbly carbonation...it did keep a minimal head throughout...no real lacing to speak of.

A potent, grainy-like scent, but it delivers a nice smooth flavor....not sharp like some pilsners can be, and no bitterness...fresh and easy going. A good summer beer.

3.5/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Bright, high-clarity yellow color...a finger of foam rises and falls to a film. Spritzy, crisp carbonation, very light feeling. Spotty lacing that washes itself away. Aroma of bready grain, honey, vague herbals.

Taste is also light in that it's fairly simple and straightforward. Some nuance of herbal hop with a lingering peppery tingle on the tongue. Mineral water, pale malt, and i'm guessing noble hops form the key components of this Czech Pils.

Very easy drinking, light carbonation, with a delicate body. No offensive qualities, clearly a fresh sample. Refreshing on a hot summer night...

3.3/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Received from my salesman as a sample.

Served chilled and poured into a Weizen glass.

Appearance is good. Bright gold color with one finger worth of head on top. Decent amount of lace fills the inside of the glass. Many carbonation bubbles rapidly moving to the top. Spot on for the style.

Smell is average. Grassy hops jump out with an earthy malt background that evens things out.

Taste is average. Grassy again. Earthy malts again. Not much else. Finishes clean and bland.

Mouthfeel is above-average. Nice lively presence when it hits the pallet but finishes very thin.

Drinkability is above-average. To call this beer an easy drinker would be an under-statement. Incredibly smooth. Too bad the flavor and thin mouthfeel makes me not want another bottle.

Overall: A run-of-the-mill lager that does nothing to excite me. Not so bad for the style, but then again, it's not a style I'm into anyway.

2.93/5  rDev -18.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours with a dirty gold color and a head that never quite dissipates. Slight aroma of some salty bananas and cooked grains. There's relatively little Saaz character for a beer so named. On the palate, rather bland and inoffensive, with bitter hops kicking things off before things become a bit more rounded with pale malts. Nothing too deep or interesting. Mouthfeel is light, with medium carbonation, with yet again no distinguishing characteristics. Overall, this is a blah beer that has little to recommend it, but little to leave a drinker disgusted. It commits the cardinal sin of being nothing.

3.1/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Straw yellow colored, pils foam, white anc compact.
Grassy, good hop. But even the malt is perceptible.
In the taste is a little more malty, even if in the back the bitterness is still well present. Dry.
Grassy bitterness aftertaste, even if not really long.
Pleasant and drinkable beer, typical czech pils.
