3.9/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Served up in a sampler 2-3 oz. (not quite sure which) mug.

Bright yellow appearance with a slight white head, leaving behind fairly decent lacing on the glass.

Aroma is slightly sweet, with floral, herbal hops coming through in the nose.

Light in body; tastes of sweet grains up front, with a strong middling hop bitterness, a bit of biscuity grain going down and finishing long, mostly bitter but slightly sweet.

A highly refreshing, drinkable pilsner, but with a slightly elevated 6% ABV that could undermine that drinkability.

Appearance: Pours a light, pale golden-hued body with a thin white head.

Smell: Light floral, grassy aroma.

Taste: Atypical for a pilsner: Lightly sweet malt teamed with spicy, floral hops and a crisp, clean finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Mild carbonation.

Drinkability: Aiken Brewing's Czech Pilsner - a beer I've been achin' to try (and review) for quite some time.
