A:
Pours crystal clear, rich gold with a perfect puffy glop of white head that sticks like glue before eventually dissipating. Great retention; sheets of lace. (4.25)

S:
Balance between grains and light hop spice with some wet cereal sweetness. (3.25)

T:
Cereals, lightly grassy, Some peppery and herbal hop in the finish as it warms it gets pretty sweet for me. (3.5)

M:
Zesty yet creamy body with medium carbonation and a slight bite in finish. (3.75)

O:
Pretty good Czech pils.
There is just about enough of everything, it is fairly well-balanced and there is a nice carbonic/hop bite. My main gripe is that it was a little sticky towards the end and ventured into flavors that some pale lagers do but which I personally don't really love, but aside from that a tasty beer. Not too much of any one thing.
I would probably have it again, but I would have to say I prefer other pilsners.

Pale golden colour, just over one finger of white sticky-fluffy head, lots of lace left behind, honestly one of the best looking beers in recent memory. Smell is grainy and malty, grassy with some floral scents, lightly bitter hop and lemon rind. Taste is malty and grassy, lightly bitter, mild hop bite, lemon, good balance, clean finish, grainy aftertaste. Medium carbonation, light body and fairly thin feel leaves a bit to be desired. Nice and easy drinking, refreshing and enjoyable even if it is a little one dimensional and simple but sometimes that is all you are looking for.
