Drank it from a chilled 12 oz. bottle.
Color: pale golden, poured into a lager glass, two fingers of head which keeps for a minute or two. Substantial lacing.
Aroma: straw, hay, light barley.
Taste: Refreshing lager taste. The hay aroma continues into the mouth. Beer does not have any complex flavors (lagers usually don't) -- very straight and narrow taste but an honest taste that harkens back to the original Czech lagers.
Mouthfeel: Nothing significant to report. A very refreshing beer that goes down easy.

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.
