A - darker than expected for this style. White head drops quickly. Some light lacing.

S - very very faint smells. Difficult to perceive. Some rougher jerky like hops.

T - sucker punch of bitterness completely unexpected. Some sweet malty flavors.

M - very smooth and malty with a tiny sparkle of effervescance

D - was expecting a less bold more universal flavor. And was quite surprised by the character of this beer.

Had this over a friends house the other night.
Pale golden straw color with a thin white head. It lacked carbonation and looked pretty boring just sitting there.
The aroma has a pale malt, grassy smell with barly any hop presence.
The taste is plain and boring but is drinkable. There is a slight hop taste, I'm guessing saaz.
A bit more malty with pale malts and pilsner malts only with a breadiness at finish.
Drinks dry and slightly bitter on the palate.
This was an okay beer but I think the hop profile could more pronounced.

Bottle into Duvel glass

Appearance: Piss yellow, typical lager color, 1 finger off white head

Smell: bready notes, slight roasted malt, nothim much else.. very subtle earthy hops

Taste: very bready, almost rye taste, for the style there is plenty of flavor for sure.

mouthfeel: great carbonation and relatively full bodied feel for a lighter beer

overall: Probably my favorite lager, with Summerfest close behind. Basically, it's a Macro made the way it should be, with some actual flavor characteristics. Very smooth and refreshing, also if you are ever in Prague, visit the brewery and try this on draft, it's amazing.
