3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at Brewvival 2012. Clear golden yellow pour. Aroma of sweet corn. Decent sazzy noble hop flavor with a big bitterness. Good for the style I’d guess, but it didn’t really do much for me.

Draught @ Green Flash. Looks as it’s named. Malts, nuts, bread, hint of hops, grass. Unbalanced, perhaps, profiles unmatched.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Gold color with a light head that remains thin. Taste is not as light and crisp as I’d expect but pretty flavorful and well balanced. Pretty good

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Shortlived white head over totally clear metallic golden beer. Pure malty nose, pale malts’ galore, dry. Hopbitter, no USA hops; dry, again pale malts but in coherence with the hops. Dry, light bodied, grist slickness. Very convincing Bohemian pilsener, even if the nose seems a bit hopdevoid.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear golden color with a medium creamy offwhite head. Decent head retention. Aroma of sweet bready malts, grassy hops and a bit of nuttiness. The taste is grassy hops, bready malts and slightl graininess. Assertively hopped and carbonated, medium bodied.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft pint. Golden with a lasting creamy quarter inch of head and some bubbles as advertised. Big nose is dry grass, resin, citrus, crackers and honey. Flavor has the same assertiveness, with the honey and crackers on front and the hops on the long dry finish. Medium body is smooth and well to the dry side. Got better towards the end, and seems like a decent session lager.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Slightly hazy but bright yellow with lively carbonation. Aroma is mildly hoppy with some bready notes. Flavor is quite complex for a pilsener: crisp hopping with some spicy and floral notes, malty and round with some earthy elements. Tasty pilsener.
