3.73/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
reviewed solo served out of a short pilsner glass.
Appearance: Poured a white and coarse head 1/2 finger head, yellow and wheat in color, clear.
Smell: I get light grains and pilsner yeast.
Taste: This opens mild with light grains, the classic pilsner yeast profile. I get a citrus hop profile in the end along with the light grains leaving a tangy aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: light bodied, moderate carbonation and one dimensional.
Drinkability: This is a one and done for me. I recommend this to those seeking a classic pilsner with mildly hoppy and citrus finish.
Serving type: bottle

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.
