Poured this Czech Pilsener from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a hazy golden color, produced an average head, nice retention, and it left a nice amount of lacing on the glass.The aroma consisted of fresh baked bread, and some slight notes of lemon citrus. Light in body, this Pilsener is quite refreshing and crisp. Very nice mouthfeel, plenty of malted grain some earthy hop qualities. Very nice session beer, would make for a great summer beer- a lot more flavor then a macro brewed lager.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours with one finger of white foam on top of a clear, light copper colored body. The head fades away quickly and leaves average lace.

S - Fruity malt with a hint of caramel and some spicy hops in the background.

T - Thick, bready malt up front with some toasty notes. A surprisingly strong hop character shows up in the middle with notes of pine, grapefruit, and some floral notes. The beer finishes with equal parts toffee malt and floral hops as well as moderate bitterness.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a well balanced finish.

D - Very good, lots of malt and hop character as well as a smooth lager finish. Almost like a pale ale and really quite good for what it is.

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

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and poured with a finger high white head that quickly faded away leaving only a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. A very light amount of carbonation is visible.
S: There are aromas of bready and grainy malts in the nose.
T: The overall taste is quite malty and has some notes of bitterness from the hops.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and is a litte filling from all of the malts. A moderate amount of carbonation is evident.
D: This beer is quite sessionable and well-suited for drinking on a hot summer day.

This beer is a michelob lager clone, which was quite a shock.

In a bottle, it looks like any lager, so that is tough indicator.

It smells like carbonation, with a hint of beer skunk.

This beer was nearly identical to michelob's lager, which isn't the worst thing in the world, but michelob can make it cheaper and distribute it to any place on earth, so this brewery needs to up the flavor to maintain a competitve edge.

It would have been fairly drinkable on a hot day, if I was thirsty, but the taste was something I didn't care to re-experience.
