Normally like these czechs, but this one smelled like wet, dirty socks and tasted about the same. Def not going back!

What happen to this beer? I had liked it last year. It smelled a little like the carpet in after a big party in college. I never tasted the carpet. Hopefully this was just a dirty keg or something.

Serving: Can poured into a Sam Adams glass.

Look: Straw color, good clarity but shows a lot of small protein flakes in bright light. Head is small with poor retention.

Smell: Mostly bready/sweet malt with some herbal hops... maybe a touch of licorice?

Taste: Like the smell. Flavors are subdued. The finish fades fast, ending with stinging carbonation.

Feel: A little weak all around. Very clean but nothing distinctive. In particular, could use some more IBU's in the finish.

Overall: Clean and refreshing but could have a lot more character. Definitely not a Bohemian pils. The brewery website simply says 'pilsener' and the word doesn't appear on the can. It makes the cut as a German pils but treads perilously close to American mega-brew.

On tap at American Flatbread Burlington. Served in a short pint.

Appearance - Slightly hazy yellow. Medium white head and a bit of lacing.

Smell - Grassy hops. Pilsner malt. Strong noble hop aroma.

Taste - Crisp hop flavor up front. Dies down without every going away. Pilsner malt is secondary. Hop bite in the back.

Mouthfeel - Medium light. Crisp. Well carbonated.

Overall - It's pretty good, but intense in its grassiness.

Crisp light. Great to drink between DIPAs. Perfect beer to drink with am meal. Does not over power the buds.
