2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle. Pale yellow color, with a medium, bubbly, off-white head. Lots of pine and resinous hops in the nose, with some grainy and musty notes and coriander. Very bitter for a pilsener, with some coarse, herbal sweetness. Medium body, very astringent, and crisp. Long, bitter aftertaste. Overall, this is too strong and too hop forward for a good pils. This would be okay, but the aroma is brash and the aftertaste is unpleasant.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A pleasant enough looking beer. Average head, bright yellow body. The aroma has that cooked cabbage quality that I associate with certain hops, and someday I hope to be able to identify the hops in question by name. Very slight, malty taste up front with a little hop in the finish. Overall, I think "slight" is exactly the word for this beverage.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from CBX. Super bright golden pour with a frothy white head. Aroma was bready, slightly spicy noble hop character. Nice. Flavors were so fresh and clean, spicy, noble hops, bready malt. Perfect, smooth bitter finish. Slightly sweet. Plus carbonation, light yet slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Great pils.

Aromas of bread and grassy, noble hops. Clear gold with a mostly fading, white head. Dry, bready, and with well-balanced bitterness. Light bodied with lively carbonation, and a clean, bready finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Herbal hop aroma. Crystal clear light gold color with fine bubble. Little lacing, no head. Taste is dominated by saaz hops followed by bitterness. A crisp, clean, well done czech pilsner. Would drink again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Looks like your classic beer- clear golden with a pillowy head with decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of cereal and honey with the sweetness cut by a dryness- maybe a hint of a vegetal smell. Flavor is lightly sweet, a touch grainy, then dry. Nice dry/lightly bitter finish, seems well-balanced, fairly high carbonation. A nice lighter beer.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the bottle poured a deep golden brew with a generous white head. Medium/light bodied with aromas of malt and hops with hints of vanilla. Well balanced flavors of malt and hops. I like it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bottle of this fine beer came to me courtesy of Durhambeer!
Pours a very pale golden, perfectly clear, with a very small head.
The aroma is herbal and "robustly" hoppy. The malt sweetness while noticeable is either very low or hidden by the spicer & more herbal hop character.
The flavor is mineral-y & enjoyably bitter. The hops are well featured and of course very saaz-y with nice notes of grass, herbs, and mild fruit skin. The beer is only lightly sweet and very bright.
