This is a classic Czech Pilsner. Very crisp, refreshing and clean tasting. I'm not good at describing all the aromas and mouthfeel stuff. Suffice it to say that it's a very good and drinkable beer that I go back to again and again.

No canning date

Pours a clear light straw with 2.5 fingers of thick, white head; long retention and soapy lacing holding almost relentlessly to the side of the glass.

Aromas of bright, floral straw with undertones of damp hay; an earthy sweetness builds toward the finish, imparting strong tones of smooth oak and a light barnyard herbaceousness; smooth and very aromatic bouquet overall.

Taste brings a nice mixture of hay, grain, oat, and earthy oak notes, with an herbal spike interspersed throughout the profile and ultimately trending toward a finish of barnyard wood and toasted nuts, with a hint of citrus in between.

Mouthfeel is on the drier side and consistently crisp while holding tightly to a well-concealed but present body; nice carbonation and delivery of flavor without becoming a weight on the palate.

Interesting character to this pilsner; its earthy sweetness is rather unique to my palate, but manages to weave itself nicely into the profile without becoming overwhelming as a defining characteristic.

16oz. can served in a willibecker. Pours a pale gold with a translucent clarity and a soft, half inch, bright white head that sizzles and pops as it slowly recedes. Copious tiny bubbles are present adhering to the sides of the glass. Nose is clean and grassy with a kiss of noble hops. Taste consistent with nose - clean and crisp. Mouthfeel is light in body with an assertive carbonation and a crisp, semi-dry finish. Overall, pleasant and drinkable and spot-on to style.

Enjoyed this beer in a sampler tray at the brewery and consequently ended up purchasing a 4-pack before leaving. Turned out to be a very wise decision as the canned Buffalo Czech did not disappoint. In today's world of IPAs this Czech Pilsner is a refreshing and highly drinkable alternative that is an excellent rendition of that historic style. I hope this becomes a year-round product for Shaizdon as I'll be back for more.
