3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12-oz bottle. Pours a rich gold color that is brilliantly clear. A lot of carbonation bubbles rise up through this beer creating a frothy, rocky head that is initially four fingers thick but dissipates quickly. Fair lacing. Aroma is grassy with hay and butter notes on the side. I get a hint of aromatic lemon & herb scents. Sweet grains are also there. The taste is lightly sweet up front and fairly spritzy throughout from the ample carbonation. Bitterness dances above the sweetness and becomes stronger as the sweetness turns buttery. Medium body with an oily texture. Long bitter finish. This is one of my first pilseners, so it is hard to say how it fares against standards in the style. But I really like it and will drink it again.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
As it is being drunk from the bottle, the appearance gets a 3 as a sort of n/a. Upon opening the bottle to a rather nice aroma that is very balanced between bitter and sweet, there is a slight floral insinuation. This is continued in the first impression on the tongue, and with a certain sweetness yielding to a very malty, almost caramel note that quickly becomes more akin to coffee before quickly fading into an almost (but not quite) skunky finish. Pils gets a 2 for the palate as it is too heavy, and way too sticky, to qualify as a decent lager. However, removed from the restraint of labels, it is all in all a decent beer of whatever variety.

Great brewery, but not my style. Golden pour with thin white head. Aroma is a little bit of funk - I can never put my nose on middle-European hop varieties. Somewhat malty, which saves it for me. Very clean finish which is also nice.

On tap at Mr. Goodbar in Buffalo, NY. Very very nicely done here. Light and crisp, a little bit of spice, a little bit of hop character but well-balanced throughout. Always nice to enjoy a well-crafted pilsner.

Flaska frĺn Craftbeer/Galatea. Smak och doft av humle, malt, bröd, spannmĺl och citrus. En kraftfull pilsner, fruktig och en aning oljig. Stor sötma, tydlig beska. Riktigt gott och uppfriskande!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear gold with a frothy and lacey white head. Aroma of sweet pil malts, spicy noble hops and clean Czech lager yeast. Taste is sweet pil malts, nobel hops, clean lager yeast and a medium dry finish. Could be crisper and dryer for a true Czech pils but most characteristics are they to make it good. Just need to execute the finish.
