Thanks for the bottles, Zigmund!
Clear, pale gold. A big puff of white head, settling into a creamy, tightly bubbled 1/4" layer. An army of quickly rising bubbles. Excellent lacing and head retention. Perfect presentation. Crispy, soapy saaz aroma. A bit of underlying sweetness. Floral and a touch grassy. The first sip is wow! Surprisingly hoppy, exactly what I like in a good czech pils. Slightly sweet pils malt up front, moving directly and rapidly into a floral, soapy saaz finish. Zesty and spicy. Some grassy notes, along with a bit of a soup-cracker graininess to the malt. Nice and sharp in the end, with small bubbled, crackling carbonation to back it up. Medium bodied, with a crisp, concise mouthfeel. Just what I needed in this humid New England summer. One of the best of the style, and probably one of the realest czech pilsners available in the states.

This is a good all around pils. I had no idea it was such a rarity, however. Pours to a nice golden color with a hint of amber. Not much head or carbonation for a pils. Lacing is subsequently not existent.
The smell is sweet and grainy. Not much hops in the nose. The taste makes up for it, though. Nice malt flavor with a very well balanced hop flavor. Could definitely use some more carbonation for that crisp lager flavor.
Quite good, though. One of the finer Czech Pilsners I've had.

This beer is a very rich, deep gold color with a clarity like glass. The head is thick, foamy, and brite white. Smells of sweet fresh grain and light fruit. Flavor is sweet grain with some bread character and powerful bittering hops that really ease in and eventually take over in the finish. The mouthfeel is light, smooth, and buttery. Wow.

Picked this up at the local liquor store after never seeing or hearing about this beer, and never having tried this style of beer before. Sampled it at a tasting on Saturday night, as well as tonight. This is new to me, but I'm gonna give this review a stab!
Nice, pilsener color to this, with a head that overflowed my pint glass. A careful pour is not always a guarantee, unfortunately! Anyways, this had a good, solid taste to it. A bit like fermented apples and cider up front with lots of malt behind it, and a silghtly acidic, bitter aftertaste. Very filling, with hints of straw and grass to offset things. I'm still adjusting to this style, but it's a good brew and a good candidate to be a session beer in my books. If only I could find this in more places!
I look forward to getting to know this style of beer better. Even though this is lightly carbonated, has almost no lacing, and isn't very comples, I enjoyed consuming this and am glad I pushed my boundaries out a bit more!

This is an interesting Pils. It looks great in the glass, crystal clear gold, a hundred threads of small carbonation rising in the glass, a 1 inch head lasting pretty long. The aroma is where things start to stand out a bit, and leave me a bit intrigued. There's an interesting apple aroma initially that ends with a real flowery/herbal note that's pretty nice. Also present is some breadiness. Tastewise..it's a bit thick with breadiness and also that perfumey note. It's pleasant, but it would nice with a touch more carbonation. This beer is coming across as pretty fresh, which is good, as it doesn't come with a freshness date.

The beer pours a gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a nice "all malt" scent that boasts of pale and maybe some Munich malts. The taste is good. It has a very smooth pale malt flavor that goes down with ease and finishes with some residual sweetness and a bitter bite. The Czech hops sneak out in the finish for a really well balanced flavor. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a low bodied beer with adequate/good carbonation. This is a really good pilsner. It has good malt flavor and excellent drinkability; a fine sessions brew.
