Oddly green tinge to the pale yellow color. Ample ring lace to the otherwise modest head.

The smell is mostly freshly gristed pale malted barley.

The flavor is soft pale malt with a strong pepper-shaker of noble hops. The aftertaste is bitingly bitter. This may be the closest American version of the real thing. Rich body with an appropriate level of carbonation.

It comes in a clear yellow pilsner color.

There is a decent amount of hops in the aroma with much skunk.

The flavor is very Czech pilsner. There's that saaz hops flavor with a dry finish.

So far, this is the best Czech pilsner from the US I've had. It's very close to the real thing. It misses a bit of warmness, complexity, and stankiness, but it's very very close. Lovely beer.
