12 oz bottle into hardywood tulip. for freshest taste enjoy by 9/9/12.
A: very clear, bright gold. bright white head. bubbly. retention is fair as is the lacing.
S: very eggy nose. sweet and dry. practically champagne like.
T: sulfur, bready and rich. sourdough to be more precise. a minor hop throughout. finish is a little sweet, slightly corny, and doesnt linger long.
M: a lively, but not overbearing carbonation on a light body.
D: i could drink a lot of this stuff. a pretty tasty czech style pils. clean and well lagered.

Presentation: Nice looking bottle with eye-catching label graphics in the traditional GLBC style. Label gives a nice back story of the beer, ABV info, web info, a bit of brewery info, serving temp recommendation, freshness date(8/17/13). Neck label has GLBC logo and a nice description of the beer. 25th Anniversary Cap.
Appearance: An aggressive pour from this 12oz brown bottle into a 12oz stange glass led to a 3 finger white airy head atop a crystal clear golden yellow beer. Head retention was 4min 10sec before fading to a rocky coating and thin ring that left a nice lacing.
Smell/Aroma: Smells very floral with a grassy malt aroma. Also has hints of light white grape and a slight floral hop aroma.
Flavor/Taste: Tastes very malty on the front end with nice floral hints leading into a slightly floral bitter hop midpoint turning slightly sweet with a grassy back end that finishes floral and dry. Very good!
MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied and slightly dry with a crisp carbonation that makes this very refreshing and drinkable.
Overall/Comments: Another really solid brew by GLBC that was well done and well put together. I really enjoyed this beer and how refreshing and sessionable it was. June Seasonal Release. Classified as a Czech Pilsner @ 5.3%. Consumed 6/30/2013.
