32 ounce howler into lager glass, filled today(1/19/2014). Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big pear, apple, grape, lemon zest, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of malt, yeast ester, and light hop notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, grape, cracker, bread, honey, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of pear, apple, grape, lemon zest, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of malt, yeast ester, and light hop flavors; with a great malt/yeast balanced and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Czech pilsner! All around good balance and robustness of malt, yeast ester, and moderate hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

A light golden yellow with a thin white head that had decent retention and lacing with a high carbonation. The nose consists of biscuit, hops and yeast. The taste is a light biscuit along with some cereal grains with a hint of hops. The mouthfeel is smooth and very easy drinking since I think it only had around 4% alcohol, but not sure what the exact amount is. The beer finishes off dry and is not a bad beer when you don't want something heavy. Reminds me of Moosehead and American Bad Ass beers.
