Pours golden, topped with the firm white head, looks the part. The nose is floral, orange blossom and a touch of hay. Tastes lightly grainy, biscuity and with a good dose of bitterness, tastes the part of a proper Czech lager. Perhaps a little thin in the body but otherwise on the nail.

Can thanks to Douglas. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges and laced. Aroma has a nice crispness with some grass hops and a nice hay and grain backbone. Flavor is similar with a nice crispness, light grass hops and a grain and bread backbone.

Pretty. I’ll give it that. But I’m having a hard time getting over the green-apple-yeast flavor that lingers on the tongue after you sip this pint. The taste isn’t entirely off, but you wish the Saaz hops played a bigger role in balancing out this tart bastard. Eventually the flavor fades into a metallic, lemony aftertaste, not pleasant and quite prolonged. Nice lacing down my glass, though.

12oz can courtesy of Jersey Joe. Rating #49. Hazy dark yellow pour, I’m thinking it’s more of a chill haze than anything else, moderate to decent lacing from a slightly creamy white head. Slightly grassy aroma, malty and a bit oxidized. Nice little bitter bite to it, pretty crisp and not too bad. (1507)

on tap 7/22/10.
deep straw yellow color with a fluffy white head which leaves behind tons of foamy lace.
bready aroma... mixed with florals, peppery spice, lemon, some grassiness and pils malt.
the flavor is the same.... with a spicy dry finish and notes of nobles and straw.
medium bodied, crisp and terribly sessionable. this needs to be in phx!

This beer just says mediocrity. Drinkable and light, but there are much better pilseners and other light beers available. Better than mass market, but that’s about all.

Draught at The Beerhive, Salt Lake City, UT. Clear deep golden, brief head. As it wamrs Earl Grey tea-like hops gets ever more prominent. medium bodied with clean mouthfeel, some butter and hay. Quite sweetwith medium bitterness. All the flavours from a real Czech pilseners are there, but comparing with Czech craft brewers the malt profile is too hard, clean and uninviting.
