Cloudy orange. Two finger frothy head.
Aroma of pine cone and sprig.
Floral hops and fruit taste with a hint of burnt toffee. Astringent.
Soft carbonation.
A little too much bite for my palate.

33cl bottle. Pours a clear amber, with a tall white head. Smells dank, of citrus and piney hops. Tastes crisp and bitter, with notes of citrus and bitter hops.

330ml bottle. The sentiments (in plain English) on the label 'Sometimes when you're drunk you can see better' would not fly in certain Liquor Control Boards in this broad country of ours. Jebus bless Alberta! On topic, ya gotta wonder if the rows and columns of multicoloured dots on said label are actually some sort of picture puzzle.

This beer pours a hazy, medium copper amber colour, with two rather skinny fingers of weakly foamy, and hardly even fizzy dirty white head, which leaves some swaths of botanical confluence lace around the glass as it quickly abates.

It smells of a bitter pine and dank leafy hop bitterness, gritty crackery and grainy pale malt, black pepper, mild orange and lemon rind, and further floral, indistinctly fruity hops. The taste is dank leafiness and pine needles straight off the top, more bready, crackery pale malt, mixed domestic citrus and exotic Sauvignon Blanc fruitiness, warming spice evocative of white pepper, and a weird overripe melon character, indeed.

The carbonation is pretty low-key, even with a few odd frothing events considered, the body an adequate medium weight, and actually quite smooth, the hops apparently taking a smoke break right about now. It finishes off-dry, just, as the south-seas fruitiness has enough staying power to rise against the lingering dankness of grass, pine, and seemingly everything else.

Wow, a new twist on what a Bohemian Pils can be - forget the plain Jane grassy or gassy, add some dank! It works elsewhere, and now it works here, even though I may not have agreed if you asked me about it yesterday. Anyways, enjoyable in its sidestepping, however, its strength is apparently not high enough to make me see any better, vis-a-vis the label. I'll keep trying.
