3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Churchkey as "Koutska 10° (Unfiltered/ Unpasteurized Helles Lager)". Pours a low haze, glowing gold. Sheety white lacing. Rocky retention. No heavy yeast in suspension haze/no raw krausen added into the keg it seems. Big butterscotch nose with sweet apple juice box and evident diacetyl. Taste is tangy lemon, fresh apple, herbal hops, lemongrass, doughy, salty. Palate is tangy, bitter, quenching, perhaps even lactic in the back. Amazing palate overall. So much crackery malt and fresh sourdough. Easy to gulp down. Too bad the nose was off. Otherwise stellar aesthetic wise. 5/5/8/5/14=3.7

Draft at Churchkey. Cloudy, unfiltered golden pour with solid frothy white head. Nose and flavor hold gorgeous spicy Saaz notes, along with floral character, bits of bready malt, and light earthy bite as well. Gorgeous, crisp palate but still full flavored. Tremendous pils.

So glad to see these guys at The Festival. I think I spent over half my tickets here. From the tap (screw the pitcher pour!) Clear pale gold pour with thick frothy, creamy white head. Great hoppy saaz nose, very light cereal, great saaz flavor, quite bitter with crisp bready malt.
