On draught at Beer revolution. Pours a clear yellow colour, nice white foam, medium retention. Aroma is pleasant, generously hopped - true to a name like Hopworks. Mouthfeel is bubbly and crisp, medium carbonation. Taste is hint of sweet malt, dries out in the fairly smooth finish with a nice hoppy presence. Delicious.

I’ve little experience with Pilseners, and this is called a lager, so I’m confused. Nevertheless, it has the head and body of a macro lager, but the similarities end there. The aroma is dusty with some mild citrus and honey. The hops really pop in the mouth and make this memorable, though I do wonder whether our American friends are determined to overwhelm every last style of beer with their extreme hop wave. I also wonder whether I’d mind.

A: Beautiful gold color with a light white froth. Bubbles everywhere.
N: peppercorn hops, pine, earth, pilsener malt, corn husk and grass.
T: Light malt sweetness and a pleasant hop bitterness. Some citrus/white grape. Assertive.
M: Light and yet coating. Well carbonated.
O: Quality pils that doesn’t hit the highs of Heater Allen, but which is worth a buy at any point.

Dark yellow pour, fading head with lacing left over. Aroma of hops and some malts. Clean and fresh, with a crisp bitter sweet taste. A very drinkable beer. Little bit of hops in the burp... great Czech example. Beauty!! thanks Lagerboy.
