After years of dabbling in ancient recipes or experimenting in unique styles, the off center folks at Dogfish Head returned to a basic style: Czech Pilsner. The initial pour results in a hearty froth-filled glass; there is a slow subsiding that finishes in a cloudy amber body capped by a chunky marshmallow head.

The nose contains subtle sniffs of mowed grass and lemon slice; the palate has it pretty easy with this pilsner - no piercing here. The tongue is tickled by dabs of peach and lemon tea; there is a somewhat bare bones (Saaz) hoppiness with a lingering lemony fade.

The body is spectacularly crisp and the mouthfeel very refeshing. A wild and wonderful sessional quaff fo a hot day - or a cold one for that matter.
