I was expecting more skunk flavor based on the smell, however it is actually not that high. A pretty balanced and very light flavor profile, which is typical for the style. I've got a great local option of Czech pilsner from raleigh brewing, and when I saw this one at the store I figured why not give it a try. Not bad, could be better, and I expect it would be if it were fresher (aka in Prague instead of being shipped here). I think I'll stick with my local option, but a good try.

A: Clear golden with a thick white head which lasts before leaving some traces behind

S: Floral hops and some grassy grains... soft and subtle but varied

T: Continental floral hops kick you in to start and citrus quickly follows before giving way to a standard malt base

M: Light body with a big carbonation profile this is refreshing and perhaps better on a warmer day

D: Not bad at all... but the carbonation kind of gets in the way of prolonged consumption

Pours into the pint glass a clear golden straw color with a solid white one finger head that lingers. The dense head is creamy foam.

Subtle floral hop and cracker-like malt lead the aroma. There's a bit of grainy sweetness present.

Flavor is pilsner malt heavy, bready in the aftertaste. There's a hint of lemon and a slightly peppery, bitter finish batting cleanup. There is a bit of a metallic flavor as it warms.

Body is light to moderate, with moderate carbonation providing a refreshing mouthfeel.

A fairly non-descript brew, but easily drinkable and sessionable. Would be refreshing on a hot day.
