3.8/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

poured 12oz bottle into pint glass.

A - Lemon and light straw in color with a bit of haze. Bright 1.5 finger white head. Bubbles slowly rise from bottom of glass. Decent lacing for a Pils.

S - Lemon zest, with some wheat, grain, grass. Light on the malts.

T - Wheat, grassy, with some grain and Pilsener malt. I get some light lemon zest and floral hops. Tasty Czech Pilsener that I could enjoy anytime.

M - Very crisp and clean with some zippy carbonation. Light bodied and quite refreshing, I finished it in quickly.

O - I enjoyed this and it is not a style I have had much of. Only Budvar and Urquel, many years ago, when I visited Prague.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This one looks more the color of a Kolsch, a very pale whitish-yellow. A completely pure white head reaches one finger and is sustained at a thick foam the rest of the way, never fading beyond that and leaving a thick, spotty sheet as it drops.
Pilsner malts and Noble hops are the order, making this a pretty pure pilsner. Ultimately a strong scent of lemon comes out over the top. It's a bit spicy, grassy, and earthy with a buttery note.
The taste goes biscuity, some lemongrass and a touch of herb pulling through underneath, with a spiciness, a touch of grains, and a lingering steely bitterness into the finish.
The feel is both creamy and crisp in a light body. It's good, though a little slick in the mouth.
