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.

Pour on tap at Cafe Vino, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, dough, some yeasty notes into a hint of earth, some spice notes with a touch of grain, hints of fruit as well. Taste was a mix of grass, earth, spice into a bit of bread, biscuit, yeast, some slight husky notes, finishing slightly bitter.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pale gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of crabapple, pale malt, and a bit of grassy hop. More pilsner malt in the mouth, along with a bit of earth and wet stones. Light bodied. More Helles-like than Czech pils to me. Meh,
