Served in a pilsner glass at Estelle's.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a clear pale yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles cowing up through the glass. Spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Pilsner malts, a little sweetness, and some grassy and herbal hops.

Taste: Same as above with some mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, refreshing, light bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Above average pilsner. Could be a bit more dry and less sweetness.

Moderate head, but it settles slowly with some decent lumps. Some streaky lace. Light golden color with a continual series of fine bubbles working upward. Hazy.

Light, frothy raw grain barley aroma. Some malt is present. There's the lightest of hops in the mix. Very true to style.

Far more hoppy in the taste than in the smell. Grainy start but it fades rapidly to the bittering hop. The body is not quite as light as most pilsners. Long, bitter aftertaste. Refreshing.

A: Pours a golden yellow color with a fingers worth of head that fades to a nice cap within a few minutes

S: Mostly some pilsner malts that provide some sweetness and light bready notes along with a light herbal and earthy hop character

T: Starts out with a little bit of fruitiness along with the pilsner malt, which again provides a light sweetness and some bready notes. The hops come in near the finish and balance everything out with some herbal notes

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid czech pils with plenty of pilsner taste from the malts. The hops round everything out nicely, and provide some balance. Definitely worth the $4 price tag
