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

330ml bottle poured in a Leffe chalice.

A: Pours a pale and bit cloudy yellow color forming a big, fluffy and aired white head. Retention is medium to small. Some lacings are formed and left

S: Smells like a Czech Pilsener :). Sweet malts and hops, basically. Very grainy and bready. Saaz and citric hops on the nose

T: As the nose. Sweet malts upfront followed by a pleasant hoppy bitterness. Again, very grainy beer. Bready Lager yeasts. In overall, a dry beer with nice stingy hoppy end

M: Light body. Good carbonation. Nice persistent bitterness in the aftertaste

O: Very drinkable beer. A little bit more creamy than an "real" Czech Pilsener and perhaps a bit too bready. In any case, Sierra Nevada quality...
