Poured this Czech Pilsener from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a hazy golden color, produced an average head, nice retention, and it left a nice amount of lacing on the glass.The aroma consisted of fresh baked bread, and some slight notes of lemon citrus. Light in body, this Pilsener is quite refreshing and crisp. Very nice mouthfeel, plenty of malted grain some earthy hop qualities. Very nice session beer, would make for a great summer beer- a lot more flavor then a macro brewed lager.

A - Pours with one finger of white foam on top of a clear, light copper colored body. The head fades away quickly and leaves average lace.

S - Fruity malt with a hint of caramel and some spicy hops in the background.

T - Thick, bready malt up front with some toasty notes. A surprisingly strong hop character shows up in the middle with notes of pine, grapefruit, and some floral notes. The beer finishes with equal parts toffee malt and floral hops as well as moderate bitterness.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a well balanced finish.

D - Very good, lots of malt and hop character as well as a smooth lager finish. Almost like a pale ale and really quite good for what it is.
