One of best Czech beers and pilsner in general. Gold, clear yellow, snow white head medium lasting. Sparkling and refreshing. Not a bit sweetness and bitter just as it should be. Tasty, hops, hint of fruits. + balanced, refreshing, nor too strong, nor too weak. Always have one in fridge. Beer to return in any time. Kozel and steak = winning combination. - can't see any.

Slight off white head over clear deep gold, sweet malt and flowery hop nose, a little hay too. Light bodied which plays up the substantial hop bitterness in this, also a nice light malt background but it's the hop that is dominant here. The finish is long, bitter and delicious. This is a great warm weather session lager. Well made and worth purchasing.

500 ml can purchased from LCBO for $2.15 CDN. Served cold into a pint glass.

Appearance - Clear golden color. 2 fingers of white head that stuck around for a while. Also frothy looking head and some nice streaky lacing left behind. Lots of bubbles within the clear beer.

Smell - Grassy, also a slight smoked meaty smell (maybe my nostrils were off?). Not a lot else but that was a pleasant source of differentiation. Good for the style.

Taste - Nice mild flavor, just enough hops bite to give it some crispness. Also some faint spiciness transitioning to bitterness on the back end. Not spectacular but certainly pretty decent.

Mouthfeel - Tingly sensation in the mouth, but slightly thin watery taste on the tongue. Still retains medium body with lower carbonation.

Overall - A fine beer for the style that's quite a bit hbetter than a lot of the stuff at the LCBO. While it won't be my first choice if I'm craving a Czech Pilsner, it won't be far down my list either.
