Pours amber with a quickly fading white head.
Nose shows spicy hops and biscuity malt. Some sweet notes underneath.
Similar flavours; grainy, nutty malt and soft spicy and grassy hints.
Carbonation seems a bit full-on.
The grainy malt is a bit off-putting.

Bottle: pretty standard green 330mL bottle with a transluscent macro label.

Appearance: pours out a standard light amber colour with a fluffy head that dissipates quickly. Plenty of carbonation visible.

Aroma: an aroma of light malt and standard grass hops. Not brilliantly integrated, but good standard fare.

Taste: again pretty standard stuff - some grass hops and reasonable grains. A bit awkward if anything.

Aftertaste: drops away pretty quickly, but I do get the feeling this is meant to be a sessional.

Mouth feel: a light body with, for a pislner, quite a low carbonation - which I think is half the problem. It really needs a bit more oomph.

Overall: a pretty standard Czech pilsner - nothing special, but quite drinkable. Not sure about the price of AU$61 a case of 24 x 330mL bottles though (2013).
