Pours a hazy, straw color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of hop, and a hint of yeast. Fits the style of a Czech Pilsner. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong pale malt, sweet malt, hops, and slight yeast. Overall, good appearance, simple but good aroma, good feel and body as well.

On tap at Bluephies in Madison, Wisconsin. Served in a shaker pint 10/28/2014.

A- Clear golden-yellow body that is on the slightly darker side of the yellow spectrum. Half finger white head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. [3.5]

S- Crisp earthy, grassy hops along with a crackery biscuit malt sweetness, a bit of yeasty mineral flavours. Not complicated, but it comes together quite well. [3.75]

F- Biscuits, lightly toasted malt, minerals, grassy hops; clean sweet malt flavour finished off by a mild earthy bitterness. [3.75]

M- Crisp, on the thinner side but about right for the style. Nice and dry, refreshing finish that is a lingering earthy bitterness. Very easy to drink if it is a warm night. [3.75]

O- Very solid czech pils. On the earthy-slightly skunked side, nice mouthfeel and refreshing; about what I expected from GLBC. [3.75]

Final score: 3.74
