A Czech Pilsner from the Czech Republic! Imagine that.

Serving style : 11.2 oz bottle poured into standard beer glass.

Appearance (3.5) : A 2 finger head with a marshmallowy appearance. Body is somewhere between a lager and a brown ale. It's got a honey golden brown hue to it but is still transparent like a lager should be. Head recedes to a finger and leaves almost no lacing.

Aroma (3.25) : Onion, sour malt, wet hay. Smells like a pilsner. A little hop aroma, too. Bouquet is medium strength.

Taste (3.25) : The hay aroma makes itself evident in the taste, but is astonishingly saved by a pleasant hop bitterness and malty backbone. The hop bitterness comes on like a pale ale but leaves in a split second, dissolving into malt flavour. There's a hint of diced onion and corn. There's also a semi-sweet milk chocolate flavor in there. Maybe it's in my head. It's flavorful but not excellent. It is refreshing.

Mouthfeel (3) : Light to medium bodied. Light zip, light creaminess. Not bad.

Overall (3.08) : Yeah, I wouldn't buy this again. But it was a nice chance to try an import lager. These are for sure different than your run of the mill American lagers.
