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

Serving Type: 500 mL can poured into stemmed pilsner (beer tulip) glass.

Appearance: Clear, brilliant gold color. Soft, frothy head recedes to a fine haze; produces slight lacing.

Smell: Clean, mild, grassy hops balanced by bread maltiness.

Taste: Crisp, clean bitterness with lingering dry finish. Hops balance well against sweet malt body.

Mouthfeel: Full but soft carbonation. Light to medium body with smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

Overall: Although not overly remarkable, enjoyable in its overall balance.

Notes: Far from the memories of draft tasted at the brewery in Plzen during the 1990s, but currently much better in cans than earlier green bottles.
