4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Churchkey - Washington, DC. Crisp, herbal aroma, green, grassy and like steeped straw or silver needle white tea. Flavors capture me right away, soft dry minerals, granite and slate. Towards the end, it hits hard with bitterness, but after working through a sample (and later a full pint), it smooths down and integrates nicely. It has structure, but I would still call it dry. Lovely, light-hearted, clean and exactly what I always wish I could drink. I’m sure this is far from the best classic, unfiltered example of the style, but it’s what I hoped it could be.

Tap (Cuda na Kiju, Warsaw)
Tons of light grains in the nose, but a good swirl brings out some fruitiness too. Just the right amount of diacetyl - just detectable. Liquid bread, slightly dusty paperiness. Clean and refreshing, but not boring - a classic Czech pilsner.
