L: Pours amber with a small slightly off-white head. Head lasts a decent amount of time. Tiny bubbles seen rising.

S: aroma of grapefruit and other citrus. Caramel. Floral. Malt.

T: Hops, malty, citrus.

F: Crisp. Medium bodied. Dry. Slightly cleansing.

O: Drinkable. Refreshing. Not particularly sessionable, but one is fine. Worth a go.

Bright yellow pour with a frothy white head. Aroma was devoid of hops. Even had a cardboard edge to it.

Taste was compromised. Stale paper, buttery off flavors. Drain pour.

Poured from keg, drank from plastic glass. Brewed in Aug 15.

A: Clear, rich yellow colour, aggressive white head that persists.

S: Pleasant mellow malt, only a slight suggestion of corn. Clean nose.

T: Nice rich sweet malt, hoppiness is present, subtle corn scent is still there but still subtle. Nice and citrusy hoppiness.

M: Very crisp, clean mouthfeel, but overly dry, bitter aftertaste, similar to a strong adjunct lager.

Overall Notes: Solid example of the style, very refreshing and crisp, but aftertaste hinders it.

This is a tasty beer with a smooth, but spicy taste to it, without the actual heat of spice. It's a unique brew.

Tasting notes: Does indeed hit the Czech pils mouthfeel ... Rather buttery yet crisp. Mellow aroma. Popcorn and corn syrup. Grass. Unripe peach. Fairly sweet initially but dry in the finish. Somewhat recalls a Helles lager.
