12oz Bottle received in trade with cfrancis - thanks!

Appearance - Clear yellow colour with a small size fizzy white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there isn't much lacing.

Smell - Corn, breads/grains, hops

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste corn, hops, and bread/grains. There are also some grassy/herbal notes and a touch of apple juice. It ends with a faint hop aftertaste.

Overall – Seems like a pretty bang on example of the style. I wouldn't mind a little more hop bite, but solid nonetheless.

A: Poured into a Pilsner glass from a bottle with a date of July 18, 2013. Light straw color with a big foamy head. Bubbles very prevalent and rise quickly. The head leaves its soul behind all the way down the glass.

S: Smells of biscuits and pale earthy malts and dry hops.

T: Clean and crisp light bready flavor with a bit of honey and sweet grains.

M: Clean mouthfeel with a lot of fizziness. Light body with a dry and bitter finish.

O: It's great for the style. It's better than some Pilsners made in CZ. I would recommend this for anyone wishing to try a Pilsner for the first time. Very easy to drink.

A: mostly clear yellow, with decent edging and lacing, sparse head retention
S: somewhat floral and sweet
T/M: crisp and clean, with a mild malty (little bready) front. The problem is it doesn't much change from there. The carbonation stays throughout the taste, but any hops bitterness is subdued where I expect it to be a little stronger.
O: it is a fine tasting, refreshing lager easily beyond your BMC. It's a little sweeter and more complex, but I think it's missing that transition to bitter and/or dry.
