On tap at Franklin's yesterday.

A shade darker than straw yellow, this beer is capped with a gorgeous, dense, creamy, white head with exceptional retention and lacing. The nose is excellent as well - moderately grainy with a pilsner malt base (albeit not the truly glorious undermodified version?) and a clean, moderately bright Saaz hop nose, with spice and a little bit of mint. There's just a touch of diacetyl in the back, as well. The mouthfeel is darn near perfect. Light in body with a brilliant creamy, smooth carbonation, this is soft and gently on the palate with a clean, mildly bitter finish with a moderate hop flavor. Great stuff, highly recommended.

From the brewer, "Made with pilsner malt and Saaz hops from the Czech republic, our take on this classic European lager is light golden in color with a dense creamy white head. Lagered for seven weeks it has a nice clean malty backbone with an assertive dose of floral and spicy hop character. Czech it out and see why this style of beer single handedly changed the world of beer as we know it."

Served in a shaker pint glass, beer is yellow and clear with almost no head, moderate to low carbonation, low lacing. Looks good.

Aroma is mildly sweet, mildly pilsen in the nose, overall a decent but weak aroma.

Wow, this is a great great beer. I'm a big lager fan and wow, a truly great beer here. I could drink this all day. Seriously. Awesome. Mildly sweet up front, medium body, probably about 30 IBU on the finish which isn't too dry, a great beer, a great example of the style, I'd have it again in a second.
