T- Crisp grain. Hop character is more earthy, deeper than grass.

M- Body light, very crisp finish, helped by nice carbonation.

O- Feel is nice. Crispness refreshing.

Poured from the bottle into a pokal like Kronenbourg glass.

Golden and dark yellow bodied with a shimmering quality. Rock and solid two finger bleach white head, crowning nicely with a little bit of clumpy lacing.

Aroma has decent malt depth, a little chewy but also a had sweet. Creeps slight crispness but some good depth.

Palate has a minimal but sweet honey flavor at first. Minimal crispness with a touch of faint bready note. A good doughy after taste but lacks herbal hop character.

A comfortable Czech pils, but plays it a bit safe in the flavor department.

Pours a bright clear golden colour with a white foamy head. Aromas of cereal & malt. Taste is sweet malt, corn, grain & hints of honey leading to a low bitterness finish.

This is truly delicious! Crisp, clear and light on the palate, but full of flavor. Aroma is mild, but potent and pleasant at the same time. Taste is crisp with just the right amount of hop bitterness. Pours with a nice thick foamy head, but it doesn’t last, but sure looks good....
