3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The pour is a clear golden color with a fairly small, white, pillowy head which leaves minimal lace. The nose is typical Czech pils with some biscuity malt, spicy, floral, and light lemon. The similar with sweet biscuit, very spicy, some florals, and still a very light lemon note. The palate is very lively, light to medium, and crisp. The finish is mostly crisp and bitter with some lingering sweet malts. Decent pils with all the right parts, nothing exciting, nothing to detract.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle->SA glass. Golden with light head. Aroma has hops, grass. Tastes of hops, malt, and bread. Tastes more like a light IPA than a pilsner. Decent enough.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Finger of head with descent retention. Medium straw colored body.
A nice grain smell with a note of honey.
Taste has a little fresh fruit, light grain, and moderate bitterness. Not the best balance, but still good.
Crisp and clean texture. Moderate carbonation and a lighter body.
A solid pilsner.

Golden pour with a white head. Bread and slight biscuit aroma, some floral hops, yeast, and a light grassiness. Apple esters, a bit watery/bland, and perhaps some citrus zest. Flavor is malty and sweet. Bread, slight toast, and biscuit. A bit of yeast, apple and pear esters, and some very light floral hops. Mild grass bitterness, some water, and very mild citrus zest.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I poured it out of a 12 oz bottle. the aroma is very sweet and malty. It is a see-thru yellow color with a white head that goes away kind of fast. It taste sweet but also watered down but it is very easy too drink. It goes down very smooth and almost quenches your thrust. Overall It is an okay beer, I just wish it was not so watered down. The best part of this beer is that it is easy to drink and would probably be a great summer beer.

Refreshing and uniquely complex. Earthy while light. This Red Hook Pils has a decent mouthfeel and some nutty undertones. Not the best brew, but it’s great when paired with BBQ fare.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
~Subtle bready malt aroma with slight sweetness and some melanoidins. Hops are very floral and lightly spicy.
~Pours hazy light golden color with small white head that quickly disappears.
~Bready and biscuity malt character with spicy hops. Very well balanced.
~medium light bodied with medium high CO2, clean spicy hop finish.
~I normally don’t like Czech Pils. This is by far my favorite. Would gladly buy and drink again.
