4.23/5  rDev +22.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

color: golden, firm head

nose: dominance of yeast and hops

palate: rye bread, gouda cheese, ginger, some harmoniously integrated sour notes

conclusion: full bodied brew with a 'earthy-crunchy' taste - lacks a bit of fruity notes (for my own taste)

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a lemon gold, with a with a medium bubbled bodied frame. Head is nothing crazy maybe 1/4", white.

Smell: Hoppy and creamy, with light scents that fair well with the nostrils.

Taste: A real smooth beer that tasting it you realize what smooth is. Creamy like most marzens but it obviously it falls into it's own category. Light bitterness which has almost a milk feel to it.

Mouth: Medium feels a bit light at times but just enough to satisfy the pallets.

Overall: Honestly I am impressed, poruing it into my glass i was just thinking ehh "this is going to be okay" and to my surprise "YUM!". For around two bucks a bottle at your local beer spot, you got yourself a winner. Salud!

Golden colour, clear, decent sized head, retained some lacing. Aroma was red cabbage and vanilla, this is what I always detect from Czech beers brewed with the Saaz hop. Taste was fairly malt forward, not much bitterness, notes of paint, slightly grainy finish. Well carbonated, smooth but would have prefered a lighter body. Easily to identify as a Czech Pils, lacking something through.

This pours a clear golden yellow color with a fizzy white head. The scent is sweet and malty with little hints of citrus added. The taste is sweet and grainy. The texture is smooth and light but could use some improvement. It finishes a little chewy and chalky. This is an overall average Czech Pilsner.
