look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

poured into a pint glass may - 11- 2013 is stamped on it

Appearance - poured a clear golden yellow with 2 fingers of foam. bubbles came up through solution while drinking. good lacing

Aroma- apple pear slight skunkyness ( sulfur) Grassy

taste- crisp sting of carbonation gives way to a grainy corny flavor. then a slight herbal and piney hops at the end. Hoppier than american light lagers. easy drinking.

Mouthfeel- high carbonation dry and champange-y

Overall- I'm a little out of my element, I would imagine this is a descent pilsner. I would enjoy it as such. My BMC frame of reference would tell me that it is better than all of those. Its like a light lager with a better hop character and a better mouthfeel. it is definitely less filling than a lot of things i have been drinking lately. I would in fact have another. i would drink it as a lawnmower beer or i could se myself ordering it in an airport leaving Prague.

Pours a clear, pale orange with some light red at the light. One finger of off-white head lingers for a few seconds and clears off, leaving a thin line of lace around the circumference of the glass. Aroma consists of caramel, lemon, orange and a hint of dry grass, and is quite robust for a lager. There's no skunk-funk to speak of. Very dry and crisp with a splash of lemon on top of some grain. Some orange peel is also noticed. Add to all that a little sweet mixed with a little bitter and easy as Sunday morning all the way to the finish.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Poured a dark copper color with a good fingers worth of head that settles to a thin layer with no lacing to speak of.

S: Little skunk here... very grassy with a little lemon zest mixed in.

T: Little flat on flavor.. There is skunk here... pretty grassy here with touches of graininess but not much else here.

M: Pretty crisp and well carbonated but pretty flat over all

O: Not very pilsner like to me... A little more Euro lager for my taste. Not bad if you a thirsty.

Best before 5/17/13.

Pours a clear golden color with a foamy bone colored head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and a sweetened corn flake aroma. Taste is much the same with a mild grassy bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer that is drinkable but not very exciting.
