Draught @ Brewpub: Served in a flute. This one pours a hazy, straw yellow color. There was a thin white head that left some lace. It has a lighter nose. Faint malts as well as some floral and earthy notes. It has a medium to lighter body. Just a touch bitter, some malts. Nice.

My Bottom Line:
Friendly cereals approach whispering herbal hops, accompanying them into a lightly estery finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the strangely peach-hued blond. So this is not 100% Pils malt?
-Mouthfeel is soft and lean, perhaps even a tad watery for the style. Carbonation is quieter as well.
-Drinkability is high.
-Saaz hops could be better defined in both aroma and flavor profile.
-That rising estery finish is not what I expect/want from a Světlý.
-This is subpar for a Světlý, but I guess that is the norm for North American versions.

Bottle. Gros merci, Marc!

Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Bread and caramel aromas. Soft with biscuit, hay and sourdough upfront turning dry in the medium length bitter earth finish.

mkgrenwel (602) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Clean clear golden pour with faint white wisps of head on top. Aroma is light honey and toast notes. Slightly herbal hoppy notes. Straight honey malt up front with a clean bitterness. The malt really takes over before finally fading out and letting the bitterness show. Malt is a bit toasty, which keeps it from being too sweet. Nice, well balanced, nuanced. Lacking the depth that would lead me to come back to this repeatedly, but pleasant and refreshing.

kramer (5360) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear bright yellow gold body with a one finger fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is really nice on the malt front, dry and crackery with a really clean well lagered aroma. The hops are a bit light though. Flavor wise, it’s really clean and crisp as well, nice clean malt base with moderately bitter noble hoppiness. Lingering crisp bitterness. Light bodied and easy drinking with a good bit of fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice overall, I could do with a little more hops in here though.

Enjoyed on tap at the source. Comes to the table in a tall pilsner glass a mostly clear deep golden straw color with a smallish bone white head that slowly dissipates. smells of bready pilsner malt with an earthy spicy floral hop presence. No off aromas no diacytyl. The flavor is a little sweet rich and malty with a solid hit of bready pilsner malt. Solid spicy earthy hop presence is forward enough to keep this brew interesting. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a sweet bready mouthfeel. This is a damn fine example of a Czech pilsner, I practically inhaled this brew.
