Okay, this beer is good but a little rough around the edges. First, the head is great, long lasting and sticky. Shows great lacing on the glass. The pilsner glass is filled top to bottom with the residual from the head. Aroma is decent. Getting a lot of hops up front, malts are non-existent. Nice golden hue. The taste is a little rough. If you like a lot of bitterness from your pils, you cant go wrong with this. I prefer a smoother pils for my palate. If they toned down the bitterness, i would have scored this beer higher. Not much to knock on this beer. A decent take on a Czech pils. At this price there are better options. Another point for this beer is the alcohol content, 6%. Does not take too many of these to get trashed. This beer is the party animal of the pilsner world. It says F U to the rest, i'm doing things my way. Its the rebellious child you cant control. I would definitely get again if i want a pils that's hardcore and to the point. Nothing hidden on this one. Good pils!

Sampling right now on 7/21/14. Bottles chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a tall weissber vase glass. Alcohol content is right at 6% (ABV).

Pours a bright pale gold in color with a good 2-finger white foamy head that lasts a good while. Lots of lacing is seen, some in rings even. A good amount of bubbles streaming up from the bottle of the glass. The aroma is mostly of malt and yeast. Much more going on with the taste as it is hard to pin point besides the malt and yeast. Starts out sweet then ends with a slight bitter finish. Not to hoppy though. Crisp and full-bodied. Overall, not a bad brew at all!
