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

Poured from the bottle a pale straw yellow with two fingers of bright white head.

Aroma of spicy hops and light earthy grains.

The taste was floral and a touch spicy with light grains. Finished clean.

Light-to-medium bodied and crisp with a moderate carbonation.

This was quite tasty and would have again for sure.

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.

This is a pale yellow color, extremely fizzy and well carbonated. Smells are cereal grains and light hops, maybe a light white grape smell. Taste is crisp and very well balanced, finishing with a decent bite from the hops. This is light and very drinkable, which I'm sure is exactly what it is intended to be.

3.75/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Color is very clear, yellow color as expected with a nice level of carbonation and some notable creamy head that has good sticky lace.

S - Smells of pilsner malts, grassy herbal hops, and a touch of yeast.

T - A nice semi-bitter version of the typical style the pilsner malts are more present than expected but not enough to give the beer a "skunky" taste. Hops wave back and forth with bitterness. Not bad.

M - Light to medium it had a nice body for a Pils.

Overall it was really to plan and close to the style for a repeat offering but I chock it up to a pleasant drinking experience.
