This came in a classy and sophisticated green bottle.
The beer itself looks really nice too. It is a deep golden color with a creamy white head.
It is almost the same color as apple juice.

As far as the smell goes, Floral hops and grains come through. There is a slight skunk smell that cannot be ignored.

Sweet, malty back bone with a mild hop bitterness. However, there is a slight skunkyness in the taste that is off putting.

For a lager, this beer is full bodied. Thick, creamy and lightly carbonated. There is also an oily slickness to the mouthfeel.

Overall, this beer would be outstanding if it were not for the skunkyness.
The skunkyness was very slight, but it takes away from the enjoyment of the beer.

I would love to try this on tap.

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.
