A: Very light gold, bright and clear, with a tall, airy head of froth.
S: Nice floral hop aroma, with a touch of grainy malt.
T: Fine mix of floral, earthy bitterness and smooth malt, exactly what I look for in a good Bohemian pils. Very clean yeast profile, just the basics, really. Well-done.
M: Lots of carbonation, nice neutral but spritzy mouthfeel.
O: Top notchpilsner.

12 oz can. Solid pils with lots of flavor, touch of banana and coriander behind sweet Pilsner malt and grassy hops. Semi slick feel with a dry grassy bitter finish.

Can into a stange appears clear pale yellow with a rich 3+ finger cap that fades leaving stringy lace.

Aroma is grassy with hops with some sweet/fresh cereal grains and a touch of mineral character.

Taste is grassy with hops and a slight cereal grain flavor that is more husky than sweet. A touch of corn, sulfur and buttery diacetyl.

This is light in body with modest carbonation. Quite crisp and easy drinking. Per style its pretty good.

Quality Pilsner. Light golden color, fair amount of carbonation with a decent foam head. The flavor is typical of a Pilsner though with a bit more hops. Pick this one up.
