Misc.: Best by July 2017

Has vaguely heard of Bohemia beers, but the Gellar’s left it with a bunch of others after my daughter’s fourth birthday party. Beer Advocate calls it a German Pilsner. Going with that. Not expecting much.

Poured a light yellow clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy white head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass as expected. Decent watery foamy lacing. Outstanding retention. (Sight - 4.00)

Smelled usual notes of grass, hay, sweet corn, wheat, honey, cereal and bread. Really good though, true to the style. (Smell - 4.00)

Tasted not nearly as good as the smell, but still decent. Got hay, corn, honey wheat, grass, cereal, sourdough bread and spoiled grapes. There was also a slight peppery spice lingering on the palate. (Taste - 3.25)

Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt, slightly spicy finish. (Feel – 3.25)

Wow, I was scared early on that this was going to be good. It was not, but it was decent. (Overall - 3.25)

I went into it with low expectations and was very pleasantly surprised! Pours clear bright yellow with a thin head that dissipates fast. I couldn't get much of a head on a fairly aggressive pour. Aroma is subtle and not unpleasant, mild hops and distant corn and fermented grains. The taste was surprisingly good with a balance of bready biscuity malt and hops, with some grain and milled corn in there for sure but nothing unpleasant. Mouthfeel is light bodied but not watery, with medium carbonation. Finished clean and dry. Overall a very drinkable beer.

Clear, golden in color with a tall and puffy white head. It is actually a nice-looking brew. The aroma is where it breaks down...a bit of sulfur, some grain, a bit of vegetable, and distant spice. The taste is lightly malty...again, some spice, and a little sweetness. Medium in body...somewhat of a salty(?) finish. The beer is more interesting than an average macro, but isn't good, by any measure.

Served in a massive goblet dressed with lime and salt. Fizzy head dwindles to patchy lace. Murky golden straw color.

Nose has some crisp hop, mostly overpowered by dressing (lime/salt may be frowned on for that reason, but have you tried it without?).

Taste has that nice noble hop crisp in full without overpowering. Barley, some corn characteristics, suggestive of its make, perhaps.

Mouth is bigger than expected, and a tad dry.

One of the more refreshing cervezas, one that might actually be enjoyable without dressing. Better than Corona is really the only bar there is.
