2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the Village Beer Merchant. A not true Czech pils. Consistent with many I have had in that realm, it has a bit of cheesy aroma. Slightly cloudy body. Middling mouthfeel. So-so drinkability, with some bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355mL thanks to tastybeer. Pours clear golden with mega carbonation. Soapy white macro lager looking head. No lacing. Nose is biscuity, doughy, small butter, low noble hops/squash. Taste is quite nice- biscuity, thick, oily, sharp. Mild soapiness is not a problem. Quenching, thicker bodied for style which is nice. Quite grassy and sharply hoppy. Definitely getting there for Czech pils but just not quite there. +1 for good pilsener.
