500ml bottle poured into Sam Adams pint glass.

Pours a clear honey yellow with half a finger of sudsy white head that leaves crumbling mountain range lace as it recedes.

Smells of crisp grainy malt, apple brushed with lemon juice and mild cut grass.

Tastes of more grainy pale malt, faint muddled orchard fruit, lemon zest and more grassy hops.

Feels light and fizzy. Light bodied with tickly carbonation. Finishes off-dry.

Verdict: Recommended if you're thirsty, but not worth going out of your way for.

500ml bottle, always nice to see a new Czech-sourced lager arrive in Alberta.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with three chubby fingers of puffy, chunky, and rocky dirty white head, which leaves some decent defrosting windshield lace around the glass as it slowly abates.

It smells of musty cardboard, gritty and grainy pale cereal malts, gasohol, generic light orchard fruit, a hint of well aged lemon, and very disappointing earthy, leafy, and grassy hop bitters. The taste is bready and doughy pale malt, some further cheap breakfast cereal sweetness, dead yeast, deader lemons, an ephemeral petrol astringency, and still a very plain earthy, skunky, and wet grassy hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly laid-back in its barely-there frothiness, the body a so-so middleweight, and sort of smooth, as a nice creaminess fights with some meddling acerbities, whose provenance is apparently difficult to pinpoint for this scribe. It finishes off-dry, the still robust malt trying hard to stop the bleeding caused elsewhere.

Well, there is no obvious culprit here (brown bottle, BB a year hence), other than somewhat shoddy brewing practices - a bit of infection there, some underemployed Saaz hops there, and we get this - a difficult to enjoy version of one of my favourite styles (especially when it's warm and sunny outside). To je škoda.
