3.5/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look: It pours golden with low head retention.

Smell: It has aromas of bread and spices. There is a light apple note as well.

Taste: There are moderate bread flavors. The spicy flavors are moderate to low with light apple notes as well. It is moderately bitter.

Feel: It has a moderately light body.

Overall, this is a quality example of a Czech Pilsner with the balance being toward the bready malts.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a light straw colored golden yellow. Completely clear and very effervescent - almost champagne like. Thin white head dissipates quickly leaving no residual head.

Smell has notes of grain, grassy hops, slightly sweet with a hint of bread malts.

Taste follows he nose with notes of sweet malts, grain, bread, light grassy hops with a bit of dry grass bitterness.

Feel is light, a bit thick and sweet - I wish it was a bit more crisp. Mild to moderate carbonation.

Overall its not a great Czech pilsner, but as a simple easy drinking lager goes, its a good beer.

An interesting pils - a smooth and easy drinking experience...

When I read the words "Double Aught" it reminds me of an article I once read about what the 2000s should be called, this phrase - double aughts - was supposed to encompass that decade. I don't think it has or ever will. But as far as this beer is concerned, I found nothing about double zeroes to be associated with it. The look was a very bright yellow-ish tinge, appealing to my eyes, though the smell was a weird tang of sweetness and mustiness. Feel was light-bodied and a bit astringent, with a taste that was lightly hoppy - reminding me of the Czech basis for this pils. Anyway, a good brew. It wasn't the best I've ever had but it was definitely one to enjoy.

12oz bottle with no date

Cloudy yellow with barely any head. Smell is very malty with some floral hops. Taste is a great mix of barley and hops: baked bread, crackers, sour/bitter citrus and grass.

Great pilsner; it's something I could drink all day

L: brilliant gold and had rapidly rising bubbles with a rapidly disappearing 1" snow white foam cap.

S: Rich malt aromas, light grain, cracker, light floral and earthy hops and hop spice. Has a clean fermentation character with slightly more malt than hops in the aroma.

T: Rich malt, cracker, traces of light caramel balanced by floral, earthy hops and a very pleasant and lingering crisp bitter hop finish.

F: Medium light body with low carbonation.

O: A very drinkable, flavorful light beer. The body is a little thin and the head retention is a little low.

Pours into a pilsner a light straw color with a thinner bone white head atop.Crushed pilsner malts and some cracker meal mainly in the nose,a light smattering of leafy hops is detected as well.A nice crispness on the palate,quite dry with cracker and fresh baked bread notes,not doughy but bready.A decent herbal hoppy note in the finish makes for an easy drinking but substantial pilsner.
