3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, from 6 pack, from Trader Joe’s for around $6 for six-pack, sign said "$1.08/bottle"
Aroma: Czech hops, spicy, maybe Saaz, but definitely spicy hops
Appearance: Golden, clear, white head
Taste: light bitterness
Palate: light body, thin texture, average carbonation, bitter finish
Overall: I’m a big fan of Saaz hops, but I haven’t had a lot of Bohemian Style Lagers, so when I saw this for $6 at Trader Joes I had to grab it. Good price. The taste doesn’t necessarily scream Saaz, maybe some other hops used, but it’s not a bad lager by any means. Good value for money. Has an almost bubblegum quality to taste, maybe from yeast or maybe from using other hops. Nice light bodied lager.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
"more refreshing than the vienna lager, and therefore better. nothing that’ll blow you away, but for $5 a six-pack? i’ll give that a light recommendation."
