Not as crisp and refreshing as I would like a Pilsner to be.

Good reproduction of Czech beers (having visited Prague). Had on draft, as part of a flight.

Bottle into pilsner glass.

a: Poured a crystal clear pale yellow. Finger and a half fluffy head. Good retention. Nice lacing.

s: smells like a water cracker. Faintly like a jar of coins. Both in a good way, though.

t: Slight hops. Grapefruit bite. Crisp clean flavor.

mf: nice grainy carbonation. Smooth finish.

o: nice little pilsner.

Just not my bag. Decent color but terrible head and head retention. A little bit of bitterness in the flavor with a little metallic aftertaste. Drinkable but not something I'd choose again.
