2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a nice gold with a frothy long lasting head from tap. Smells a bit sweet and piney. Taste is pretty thin with some piercing carbonation. Taste at first is a bit bitter with some maltiness. Ends super hoppy in not a great way

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grain and some pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. A pilsener with some character, but fairly average.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft - Skunky grain and noble hops. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light and grainy, with a nice bitterness that finishes crisp. I like it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
hay, dry herbs, leafy hop aromas, pale golden coloring, airy white head, lightly bitter, light body, mild hop character throughout, remnants of that trademark Czech ’funk’ presumably from the yeast (appropriate and welcome for a pilsner), light sweetness, smooth, dry finish. a solid - if unspectacular - bid at a style that is too often blown out of proportion by many American breweries.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint on tap. Gold color, not quite clear, rocky head. Light aroma for the style. Intensely floral for a pilsener, nice herbal notes, complex for the style. Decent mounthfeel for the style, definitely not light, but not too heavy. Lots of aftertaste as well. Solid pilsener.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 draft. filtered clear light gold wih a small white head and no retention. vitamin / chalk aroma and flavor layered on top of slightly-sweet pale malt with touches of burnt corn kernels. medium body, fuller than your typical American-made lager, but still too fizzy and rough as the carbonation explodes across the palate. medium german-like hop bitterness is lightly pungent and musty with distinct sulfur / egg shell notes.
respectable but a bit too rough and chalky.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Grassy hop and cracker malt aromas. The first beer I tried on arrival in Austin. Usual yellow, perhaps a little darker than some pils. Maybe 35 BUs, but also too sweet for my taste. Refreshing enough, while heavier and drier than expected.
