On tap at Toronado in San Francisco, CA.

Well, if Raul may, he is going to call this the Jan Patočka of Czeck Pilsners (do your homework, my children). Speaking of Phenomenology, Raul almost went in and out of consciousness as he drank this dang sucker. So smooth. So smooth... Like Cigar looking back and laughing at the competition as he trotted his way to the Triple Crown, this sucker was grassy like an Iowa pasture and "bready" like Raul's Grandmama's fresh baked loaves of Sunday bread. Yes, Raul is feelin' this one.

Seek it, my children. Seek it well and good.

I’m always looking for a good pilsner.
This pours a clear golden color with cottony foam.
There’s a pleasing toasted biscuit note to this with a light grassy aroma.
There’s a piney bitterness with a robust biscuit finish on it. Another tasty Moonlight brew.

Imbibed on tap at burger. Santa Cruz on 5/25/13.

Pours a clear, tawny yellow, bordering on orange. The thin white head sinks back to the glass after each sip. Tart, somewhat sweet, tangy, and a little walnut, this beer's aroma is dominated by yeast characteristics. Flavor has more sweetness in honey with biscuit and cracker. The hops are bright and nectary with a green, young bitterness to them. Finish is fairly sweet and feel is watery, as a good Pils should be.

I like this beer, but I think I'd reach for a Death and Taxes instead because its slightly sweet for me.

(on tap at Toronado)

A: real light yellow gold, slightly hazy (dry hopping? dirty lines?).... nice, cloud-like white head, sticks around in collar, lil spatters of lace

S: bright and refreshing.... not the level nor relative richness of malt the taste soon reveals.... mostly a blend of floral and orange-lemon hops, dense yet delicate

T: wonderful smooth butter cookie malt.... lemony grassy hops, lasting bitterness.... mmm, pale and caramel malts really shine....approaching bold yet drinks light and clean.... moreish, as the malt gives way to the spring-like hops

M: starts off with a tease of medium body only to spread and attenuate back over the palate

O: solid overall... great balance, foundation and separation of constituent parts.... tastes like a Czech Pils more than anything else.... probably oughta do a follow-up review ASAP
