3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an ultra clear straw color. About one finger white head. Some retention and some lacing. It’s well carbonated.
Aroma is lagerish. Mild hop aroma. Smells like toasted rice for thec grain. Biscuity and bready along with the rice.
Taste is a little more hoppy than the nose. It’s a grassy and floral hops flavor. There’s some grapefruit in there. It’s also crackery. It’s more bitter than you would expect. It’s also chalky. Weird.
Mouthfeel is pretty light. Despite the light body, it covers the alcohol quite well. Only slightly dry. It’s crisp and clean. It’s pretty drinkable.
Overall, I have mixed feelings about this. I want to like it, because I really like pilsners, but there’s something missing. The more I drink the more I like it. It’s unfortunate that I obtained this by trade, because I’d like to drink at least one more. I’d probably recommend this. It’s decent enough.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Neurolux. A bit disappointing, and not very "pilsnerish". I was missing the crisp hops bite on the tap. This came across more lagerish, is both aroma and taste, more like a Dortmunder. I’d need to resample under better conditions (i.e. not at a concert)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg pour at NH Brewfest. Appearance is clear pure yellow pour with mild sparkle, small head with mild lacing. Aroma is somewhat bitter metallic, basement with yeasty cheese. Taste is same--lightly bitter and sour. Palate is light to medium, average to fizzy carbonation, bitter finish. Overall, this is fair. Not as malty as you might expect.

Bottle at Arnies in Akron. Poured into a pint shaker. Pours a golden clear with small head. Cereal, fresh cut grass and hay, and slight dankness. The taste is similar with grass, hay, and cereal grains. Light body, crisp. Not a bad Czech.

12 oz bottle into a pilsner glass
Best by 12/29/2015
A: Ice cold gentle pour gives 1/2" of white bubbly head. Clear and pale gold with very large hence fast rising bubbles.Good retention and very nice lacing initially and as drunk.
S: MiId grass and dried hay aroma with sweet baked bread behind. Nothing elaborate or that need be.
T: Crisp flavors of lightly toasted white bread joined with faint herbal hop bitterness. The hops soon turn tart and faintly lemony. Nice, subtle and pretty well balanced. I do not get any alcohol at least as yet. Tartness perhaps turning a bit sour over time.
M: Light for the strength and crisp on the palate with a good level of carbonation. Finishes medium length and somewhat wet.
O: I expected good things from this and cannot say I’m disappointed except that I can’t get this in my hometown. Also slightly stronger than I prefer as I admit to becoming quite a lightweight in recent years. Nice beer overall and one i do recommend as a lover of pilsners.
