Good beer but a little too bitter for the style. Some Diacetyl, also not very much to style but makes it smooth and drinkable. Who cares about style. Call it Czech Pilsener and also the label fits.

A clear, golden appearance and a healthy white head.

The nose has a sour-n-sweet fruitiness that is very lemon-like paired up with a solid dose of malt and a soft yeasty note. Delicately hopped and the sweetness is a little overdone.

When tasted this beer is very sweet at first, with many fruity notes, including traces of banana and lemon. Before passing through a salty malty phase, the taste slowly turns bitter and hoppy and finishes with a dry and outspoken bitter aftertaste.

A medium body with a supple mouthfeel and moderate to strong carbonation.

A bit too much on the sweet side, but a refreshing and professionaly brewed beer nonetheless.
