3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Moderate straw for the malt, dried grass and citrus for the hops, with hints of wood and pepper in the background. Head is large, creamy, white with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is murky amber. Flavor starts moderately acidic and finishes lightly acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a pretty dry finish. This Bohemian Pilsener is unusual in the fact it’s hops presence is so citrusy and the palate is heavier than most others. Maybe not so true to style, but I’d certainly have this again.
