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

A great brewing accomplishment at 4% abv! Best beer at a recent trip to the ChurchKey. A minimal white head over a gold body. The nose is substantial for a lighter pilsner, featuring biscuit malt, a touch of booze and ripe tropical fruit. The taste profile leads with rich and slightly roasty dark pils malt, with some mango and citrus. Complex and very tasteful low alcohol pilsner

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Numerous pours over the past five years: Hazy golden. Thin cap of creamy white foam. Rustic and complexly malty nose of butter cookie, piecrust, cracker dough, along with a plentitude of hop-derived fennel candy, pepper and lemon oil. Perfect touch of yogurty yeast and minerals. Soft body is draped in creamy carbonation. Vividly defined peppery hops inundate the palate alongside richly textured malt which unleashes a host toasty and cookielike notes. Bracing minerals mirror the profoundly refined grassy bitterness which exerts itself forcefully. Dabs of lemon candy drip from the nectar-filled hops. Malt continually looms with lush and bouncy toasted hay and a well-measured sweetness that evokes candied pecans, toffee and some discernible kettle caramelization. Potently brisk finish is liberally dosed with palate-cleansing minerals and a spicy hop punch of candied fennel. An evocative, soulful, old-fashioned světlé ležák embodying the rustic charm you might expect from such masterfully decocted malt centered around open fermentation and the brewery’s divine well water. The quintessence of Czech brewing.

On tap at Craft Bar 30A in Grayton Beach, FL. For someone who doesn’t typically drink this style I was impressed. Seemed a bit more complex than most pilsner beer I’ve tried. Aroma and taste similar. Grainy, cereal notes. Bread. A floral hop character that was excellent. Super balanced. Mouth feel was light and refreshing. Super nice expression of this style.
