I bought a couple six packs of this right from the GLBC gift shop while on a recent trip to Cleveland. Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a shaker pint glass.

A= This lager poured a brilliantly clear pale gold color with a thin 1/4" white head. The head dropped fast to a thin ring and left just a few spots of lace.

S= Sweet grainy malt in the nose, as well as some light sulfur, noble hops, and a grassy/flowery note that is quite pleasant.

T= Started off with the lightly sweet malt base then quickly dried out with grassy notes and a modest but firm hop bitterness. Light mineral flavors midway and into the finish kept my taste rating from being higher. Finished dry and refreshing.

MF= Lighter bodied with a spritzy carbonation level that was just right.

D= A fantastically session-able beer that tastes good enough to want to... One of the better Czech pilsners I have had from the U.S.
