16 oz. pint on-tap at Doc's in Houston

L: mostly clear yellow, nice white foam, head just 1/2-inch at most, thick collar, no lace. Maybe debris. wasn' t poured into a pilsener, so it's hard to judge the head here, but as it is, not bad.

S: sweet green grass, some grain, super sweet onion (as in, it's almost not onion it's so sweet) ... So good as it warms. So sweet but not bread malt ... It's like sweet green hops. amazing. really opens up.

T: fantastic grain bomb at first with green grass hop bite, but the bitter is very subdued. like the nose has a hop note that's super sweet, the taste here has hop flavor but a very controlled bitterness. very good. VERY good, in fact. I could drink this all the time.

F: light but good carbonation. it's not as dry as I think the Czech pilsener is often touted as, but there's nothing wrong here.

O: very nice. Sharp corners on a true Old World style in that it isn't overly Americanized. the sweetness is not full on bread malt but it's real close; the grassy hop bite is also restrained nicely. fantastic beer.
