Taste: Dry, this time might have got a little light struck in bottle, saline bitter funky. Gold and clear in color with a
soapy head with a medium body.

Hearty yellow pour for style, 1/2" white head. Aroma had those zesty noble hop feels, I'm down. Almost hoped for some skunk in this one.

Taste didn't pop as much as hoped for, but its a pilsner, its mild, it does its thing. Highly carbonated, light pilsner malt, I mean, this is better than average for style. Average bitterness and noble/Saaz hop impact.

330 ml green bottle with a cryptic production stamp. Served in a lager glass.

A: Clear amber with a moderate size head that fades to a durable white top coat.

Smell: Euro hops dominate; faint bready malts

Taste: Better than the aroma suggests with more malt, especially up front. Mild+ bitterness.

M: Medium but softer (natural?) carbonation than usual for style (in bottles).

Overall: a decent Czech style pilsner.

Golden promise of goodness.

Standard Euro Pilsner that falls slightly below the first flight. Light gold color, pleasant hops accenting the malt core, good texture and drinkability. Goes down easy and matches well with food.

Decent enough and worth seeking out to carry along on a pheasant hunting trip.

Pours clear, gold in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is grain, grass, honey, and faint hops with lingering sweetness. Average to slightly below average Czech pilsener. Not a bad beer but, I have others that I prefer much more in the style.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains and some light malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with cereal grains, and crisp.

Overall a nice pils, not anything spectacular as far as flavor (but I guess that just adds to it's drinkability); because I know I could knock back a solid 12 pack (on a hot summer day, that is). Definitely stays true to the pilsner style...light, crisp, and clean.

Although the nose is initially cereal grains, the taste is all pilsner. Lightly hopped, rich golden color with soft, creamy head. Medium weight mouthfeel and some lingering malt/hops on the palate. Easy to drink and highly enjoyable.

L: It pours brilliant gold with a 2” persistent white foam cap that produces light lace. S: Has a spicy, earthy nose with light grains, medium hop aromas, medium low malt T: Medium low malt with a light sweetness with traces of apple. Spicy, medium low hop flavor, crisp medium to medium high hop bitterness. F: Medium light body, medium carbonation. O: A decent drinkable beer. No traces of skunk but the level of apple was a bit odd.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Cary, NC. This beer is a clear golden color with a large white head. The aroma is full of malt and hops, very inviting. The flavor has a sweet malt flavor with some hop bite. A very good Czech Pilsener.
