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.

330ml bottle poured in a ordinary glass.

Another review in the train... :) Now, a classic Czech Pilsener. I'm a fan of Czech Pilseners: They are simple, "hoppy" and usually refreshing.

A: Nice transparent gold to orange color with a nice and white 2-3 fingers head. Nice retention.
S: Malt and fresh-floral hops. Bready.
T: Fresh hops, malt and yeasts. Nice bitterness (of course, little bit more bitter than the German version). Refreshing as expected.
M: Nice bitter end (I like it) and good carbonation. Yeasts can also be felt in the end.
D: Good drinkability. Classic Pilsener.

Sampling right now on 7/14/14. Comes in a 500ml (16.9 ounce) bottle. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled glass "CHEERS-BOSTON" stein mug.

Pours a golden-yellow in color with about a 1/2 finger of a white head that settles to a thin layer on top and sides. LOTS of lacing is seen with each sip, close to rings actually. Very surprised! The aroma is mostly of malts with a hint of floral. Not 'skunky' really as most of the brews that come in a green bottle for some reason. Perfect carbonation. More going on with the taste with the malts, grains, breaddy yeast with a sweet crisp dry finish. More drinking of the brew brings out a light floral taste mixed in there as well. Overall, a decent brew.
