This is bordering on session IPA. Not the best representation of the style. Czech pilsners should not be this hoppy imo.

Not much going on here. Had it on tap on a pint glass. Muted aroma, typical pils malt taste with bitter finish, but it lacks some of the grassy and earthy notes you would expect from the hoppy-lager profile of a pils. Also, it has lots of carbonation, to the point were it can be a little bit unpleasant. I have nothing against good pilsners, but this is just a very mediocre representation of the style.
