On-tap at the Toronado in SF, poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a pale gold color, topped with a thin white head, leaves decent lacing.

S- Lots of floral hops with spices, grainy pale malt, has a lot of spice and some honey in the center with a grassy bitter finish. The flavor is classic pilsner flavor, but fuller and more interesting than any pilsner I've had before.

M- Light-bodied, smooth, crisp feel, long slightly bitter finish.

O- A great pilsner, it's light, refreshing and very drinkable but still has loads of flavor, I don't drink a ton of lagers but this is easily the best pilsner I've ever had.

Enjoyed a couple pints on draft at Monk's Kettle. Nice and clear with a pillowy head. Good retention and lacing. Aroma is pils malt and noble hops... quite mild but definitely appealing. Tastes grainy sweet with light malt, mild bitterness and a long bittering finish. Like the other features of this beer, the bitterness in the finish is mild and accessible.

Light and crisp and extremely clean, Reality Czech's highlight is its extremely high drinkability. It is not often that one finds a good beer that asks to be drank by the pitcher!
