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.

This has nice lacing and smells malty and spicy, taste is very crisp and clean with a nice balance of malt and hops. Feel is bubbly and refreshing. I think it is very underrated. Will buy again.
