A golden pils with a thick white head. A nice biscuitty malt with pungeant czech hops. In mouth, a good biscuitty malt, carmale, with herbaceous hops, a bit of butterscotch. Very well balanced and rich bodied....and its 3.6%??? Wow. A quaffer classic. On tap at brewpub, April 24 2009.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2009 My Bottom Line:
Outgoing Saaz spiciness bounces and flutters all around this Světlé Výčepní’s valiant bready cereals, creating a cushy, lovely example of old world drinkability. This little sister of Cerna Hora might very well be as satisfying for long sessions.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam laces atop the veiled blond.
-This has to be the first 10-degree Czech-style Pilsener brewed in northeastern America?
-Carbonation is soft and the body lean (but never thin), building an engaging mouthfeel.
-The finish is lightly bitter from the Saaz’s herbal character and a tad dry as well.
-A few more pints of this and I might fall in love just like I did with their Cerna Hora many years ago! Bravo! Now if they could brew it as often...;)
On tap at the brewpub.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A true to the style “Světlý-light”. The first in North-America? Very good.
How: Tap at brewpub (first batch ever)
The look: Clear dark blonde body topped by a long-lasting small white head
In long: Nose is full of noble hops with lots of dry grass and a little spicy twist. Despite the 3.6% the beer doesn’t feel watery at all. Lots of cereals with a crisp/crunchy sensation. A little dry lemon skin flavour adds a pleasant light acidity. Light fruity notes of fresh apricots and bananas. Carbonation could have been softer. Finish is mildly bitter and moderately dry. A very nice example of the style and I’d even say that it is above average compared to what is available on tap in Czech Republic. And at 3.5% here’s a beer I don’t have to drink my 6th pint through the opening of my underwear I’m usually wearing on my head by the 6th pint.

Draft. Pours a golden body with a white head. Grassy earthy herbal body with light saaz like hop tones, biscuit and brfead y notes. Clean body with a lighter fruit sweetness. A bit thin and light but incredibly quaffable and refreshing today. nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on tap at L’Amère à Boire, pours a clear copper with a medium off-white head. Aroma is quite herbal and fungal, with dank earth, herbal hops and bready malts. Flavour is dominated by dank white bread, slight herbal and spice notes, but barely noticeable. Mouthfeel is fairly meaty for a 3.6% blond lager. Solid session beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap from the brewpub: Poured a Clear golden color pils with a medium size foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of lightly sweet bready malt with a light dry hoppy finish. Taste is very refreshing with nice cereal notes and very subtle dry hops. Body is fuller then expected with good carbonation. Very well done and it doesn’t show that alcohol is below 4%.
