Look: cloudy straw color with sediment. frothy white head
Smell: grasy hops and crisp, sweet citrus
Taste: sweet pale malt balances with a fairly bitter grassy/herbal/citrus hop presence.
Feel: medium body, moderate carbonation.

Not the usual hop profile for a pils, but pretty tasty nonetheless.

From the can, it pours a nice clear golden amber with a modest head, for a pils. Definite hops overlaying the malt in the nose. The mouth follows, with a nicely bitter pils type flavor.

Initial impression from a can:

CAN: 12 fl oz format. Pull-tab.

"Czech style pils." 4.5% ABV. 35 IBU. "100% traditional Czech Saaz hops."

APPEARANCE: Filtered pale copper body. Frothy white head.

AROMA: Grassy Noble hops. Faint graham cracker. Neutral blonde malts.

TASTE: Matches the aroma. A bit stale and imbalanced.

TEXTURE: Smooth, wet, light to medium-bodied.

OVERALL: A passable stab at a Czech pilsner. I'd sooner have Pilsner Urquell, frankly.

Citrus hops do not belong in a Czech Pilsner!

From a can at the Burning Can Festival (NC)
Excellent white head over an amber body. Flavorful and moderately+ bitter for style.
Herbal and slightly dank. Drinks almost like an IPA.

Pours a clear yellow golden color with white head. Cereal grains are pretty much what is on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with more of the same. Pretty straight forward beer and clean tasting, easy drinking too.
