Pours a hazy, straw color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of hop, and a hint of yeast. Fits the style of a Czech Pilsner. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong pale malt, sweet malt, hops, and slight yeast. Overall, good appearance, simple but good aroma, good feel and body as well.

On tap at Bluephies in Madison, Wisconsin. Served in a shaker pint 10/28/2014.

A- Clear golden-yellow body that is on the slightly darker side of the yellow spectrum. Half finger white head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. [3.5]

S- Crisp earthy, grassy hops along with a crackery biscuit malt sweetness, a bit of yeasty mineral flavours. Not complicated, but it comes together quite well. [3.75]

F- Biscuits, lightly toasted malt, minerals, grassy hops; clean sweet malt flavour finished off by a mild earthy bitterness. [3.75]

M- Crisp, on the thinner side but about right for the style. Nice and dry, refreshing finish that is a lingering earthy bitterness. Very easy to drink if it is a warm night. [3.75]

O- Very solid czech pils. On the earthy-slightly skunked side, nice mouthfeel and refreshing; about what I expected from GLBC. [3.75]

Final score: 3.74

12oz bottle into standard pint glass. best by 8/21/14, so rolling the dice a it here.

Poured a clear crisp yellow with a big frothy head. Decnet cabonation and lacing.

Aroma was slightly sweet with ( lager?) yeast overtones

Sweetness came through right away, some grassiness as well. Slightly sour note in the back of the mouth, but that didn't hang around. clean, crisp, not harse at all. Seems to hold up very well.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bright yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is grassy, malts, grains. Taste is smooth, malty, grains, grassy hops at the finish providing a mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and highly sessionable beer.

Pours a crystal clear pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma and taste is sweet fruity notes, yeast, grains, some malt. Palate is a light to medium body, crisp clean refreshing mouth feel. The finish is sweet malt, fruity mild citrus, yeast and bread with a mild hops on the end for balance. This is good refreshing mild brew for a hot summer day.
