Golden pour with bubbly, foamy head. Pleasant carbonation. Smells yeasty, light bread and tastes on par for the style. Not spectacular beer but a solid brew I'd enjoy more with food taking center stage. Finish and feel fell short IMO.

The beer is a clear amber color with a soapy thick head. There is a good amount of small carbonation bubbles flying up the beer. The beer smells of light malts and a nice grassy hop aroma is there as well. Overall smell seems typical for the style. The beer is light on taste but then kicks with a nice lemon flavor with a bite of hops at the end. The beer is thin but has good carbonation.

500ml bottle purchased from Capital Market Salem OR $3.99 Pours a cleafr bright golden colour with large nice looking creamy/frothy white head. Typical Czech pils aroma biscuity malts, and floral/grassy hop. Standard. More balanced than typical ( but this bottle is 5 months old) with more caramel style malts..and the hops appear at the end. Palate it fairly typical for style also. Fairly typical Czech Pils....as always would be better fresh

No hop flavor, only bitterness. Brady and grainy. High carbonation. Balance to the hops, but carbonation accentuates the bitterness.

Bottle.

A: Moderately malt with delicate, floral and slightly spicy Saaz hops.

A: Golden color, totally clear with a moderate white even head that has adequate retention with some light lacing in the glass.

T: Moderate maltiness with spicy and moderately bitter hops that are prominent, but not overwhelming which linger through the finish.

M: Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Soft mouthfeel from the water used.

O: Solid; I prefer the dark lager over their classic pilsner. While tasty this beer is super delicate and does not always make it to California intact.
