2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at The Trappist. Pours sparkling gold, clear, with a medium white head. Sheety white lace. Candy, older malt nose. Taste up front is big diacetyl. Ohhh damn. So much buttered popcorn. Finish is nutty and fatty. Too bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the toronado.
A: Light golden body. Moderate white head. Moderate lacing.
S: Floral hoppiness and light grassy notes. Some orange-lemon notes as well. Subtle and delicate.
T: Nice grassy hops that are slightly spicy. More orange and lemon from the nose. Not as much bite as I would like in my pils.
M: Smooth and clean. Crisp finish.
O: A fairly good czech pils. Probably wouldn’t make it my go to pils, though.

Pours clears golden with white head. Aromas of grassy hops, citrus, and some light grains. Flavors are much the same. Nice hoppy and clean pils. $3 on tap was a steal too. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Flavor. Nice unfiltered, slightly hazed look. Nice lacing too. Smells über fresh. The malts especially, pure and straight from the old country. And the crisp inviting grassy hops taste clean and smooth too. Excellent lingering grassy finish. Nice body. First impressions aren’t everything though. After a little while, the aroma gets a little grainy and the hops dont express as fully ss they could. It ends up having some unfinished wood character too and just doesn’t hold up well as it warms. However, it’s a good effort, is well-constructed, and is better than most Americans can manage. The funny thing is, I felt the whole time this was more Germanic than Czech. It’s so damn grassy and clean. My rating changed as I sipped...ending at 4-6-3-6-14 but I was having the sour mash at the same time and that might have interfered.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap. Nice golden color and a foamy white head with plenty of lacing. A crisp aroma of malt and hops with a flavor that has enough hops with some citrus and a long, dry, malty finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Toranado. Grassy hop nose, a bit faint. Nice cereal malt flavor with good grassy hops and nice bitterness. A bit too gassy. Very refreshing and clean. A good pils—good hops, though it doesn’t quite live up to the better bohemian samples in terms of malt complexity, carbonation, and body. Darn good, though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light haze in the golden amber pour. Forever white head. Nose is honey and hay and Thompson seedless grapes. Taste is lemony yeast and hay. Bit of smack sharpness out back. Great for style but just not my fave style. Glad I got to enjoy this.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a fenagled growler. Clean straw-like nose with minerals and hops and touches of underripe strawberries. Flavors were somewhat underwhelming compared to the hype of this beer, but still quite nice...clean for sure, nice mineralic flavors, a touch of salt, with grassy straw hop character in the finish. Nice thirst quencher on a hot day but I’m not seeing the complexity that others do...then again, I’m not as cool as others, so that may be the reason.
