Thanks Richard and Alanna

A: Light amber in color, with a large white head on the top. Fairly clear.

S: Grainy with light herbal notes. Slightly fruity.

T: Light, with floral and herbal notes. Fairly clean, with a slight hop flavor in the finish.

M: plenty of carbonation, fairly light in body, with a bit of a bitter cling in the end.

O: Overall pretty enjoyable. Clean, crisp, refreshing and enjoyable. Not the greatest pils in the world, but pretty darn good.

I enjoyed this chilled in a cervoise from the 12oz. brown bottle

The color is golden with resplendent clarity and thick 2 finger white head with fined bead with lace that sticks well. There is a must mineral aroma with light sweet malt accent and slight herbal hop ester with the yeast ester dominating. The feel is very smooth with moderate carbonation and moderately spicy texture with bitterness in appropriate level with mild sweetness in the finish with mild alcohol and spiced dry finish.

The taste is pretty decent with spiciness of the Czech hops with light herbal taste and gentle malt backing up the hops with slight toastiness - the yeast is the core of the taste with european influence which is heavy on the mineral with a bit of musty and dry flavor and light grassy herbal hops surround the malt with bitter flavor yet more spicy almost peppery in taste indicating saaz to me which fits the style. Not as mellow as a German pils, but in general a nice interpretation of the style and a very drinkable hoppy lager
