169 fluid ounce bottle. I bet I’ve never said that before. Crystal clear light gold colour, impressive head of foam. Lacing is good as well. The smell is of sweet bread backed by grassy hops. Not as sweet in the taste. Grass with bready malt that works for me. Grainy. Not like a PU but serviceable and...cheap.

Light colour and foaming heavily when poured. Good smell. Short taste, abit tart and sweet. Good beer for casual drinking.

Vaalean värinen olut ja vaahtoaa voimakkaasti kaadettaessa. Hyvä tuoksu. Maku on lyhyt, hapokas ja hieman makea. Mukava siemailuolut.

The beer is clear and golden with a thick foamy head and lots of carbonation. Very light malt aromas and a nice floral. aroma. The beer is light and crisp, a nice hop flavor and a hint of malt sweetness. Overall the taste is very wild and refreshing. The beer is nice and crisp with lots of carbonation.

Typical rice, corn, etc, taste as a AAL. Look is golden and head is average. Aroma is a bit pungent with adjuncts as is the taste. A little bit off on the finish, yet still a bit crisp.

This beer is really dry, I could feel my mouth, tongue and lips get almost completely dried up after about half way through it. I don't mind a little dry but this was too much.

Bottle.

A: Moderate spicy, floral hops with a light clean malt presence.

A: Golden color, clear with a moderately dense white head that has adequate retention. Ample lacing is evident in the glass.

T: Crisp with a moderately spicy hop flavor. There is a light malt sweetness, though pretty well attenuated and clean.

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation. The water used is super soft and noticeably refreshing.

O: Tasty; the beer is refreshing and very easy to drink. It finishes just a touch sweet, but overall a solid Czech pilsner.

Poured from bottle into tulip, aggressive pour yielded < 1 finger head that recedes quickly, no lacing. Crystal clear light golden to look at. Smells lightly of grain, some floral grassy hops. Taste is pilsner crisp, but with some corn flavor going on, mild sweetness, somewhat semi dry finish. Nice refreshing beer, but there are so many more done here in the states that I would rather spend money on.

Yellow with a bit of brown tint, and moderate white head. Not much lacing. Nose gave a big skunky blast at first, but this subsided and became dominated by the expected pilsener floral hops. Taste was also pretty much what would be expected of a typical Czech pilsener. Floral hops with a slight thin bitterness over lean malt. Refreshing if not exceptional.

Yellow pour, head forms and vanishes in equal quickness. Aroma was lemon noble hop vibe, nothing too heavy or skunky here.

Taste was a highly carbonated lager yeast, mild noble hop mouthfeel, lemon turned to earthy. Better than average for a domestic pilsner, prolly around average for Euro.

Poured from the bottle into a pokal like glass.

Crystal clear body, with what can only be described as a very fine brass copper color, very light pale like amber with nice slow rising carbonation. Head manages barely half a finger on the pour, and settles to a fine puck and simple small but thin collar.

Very dry sensing grain, a bit of caramel like powder sensations as well, getting into flour like aromas. Sharp and quite crisp as well to match a lot of the toasty and crackery like sensations.

The dryness continues with a surprising balance. Crisp and extremely bone dry flavors. Caramel and huge brown dry bread crust, mixing with just a little bit of malt possible corn like (possibly) sweetness. Peppery and very dry hop feeling finish as well, with muted and dried out flavors.

It's a neat take on a sort of amber czech lager, with a very interesting bone dryness.

Pours a clear honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, corn flake, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with corn flake, grass, and cracker flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: bottle.
