Pours a gold yellow with thick white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of lightly toasted malt, very light floral hops, and not a lot else. Flavor is surprisingly strong, which I was not expecting from the aroma. Overall pretty decent.

Had a taste on tap at the brewery. Very nice. Quite hoppy, very fresh, light, refreshing, full flavored.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2014 Tap: Golden body, light chill haze with a thin layer of white foam that transgresses to a measly skin quickly. Aroma is mild; notes of spicy Saaz hops, grass, & faintly sweet pilsner malt. Mild bread & honey. Taste is crisp & clean, though somewhat lacking. Notes of bread, pilsner malt, grass & spicy leaves from the Saaz, & the lightest tough of lemon zest in the finish. Some faint metallic notes here & there with a yeasty coating finish. Okay lager, overall.

On tap DTW. Clear gold. Faint aroma of light pils malts. Flavor matches with balanced hop bitterness, very very faintly floral. Clean, but I wanted more hops.

It is okay. Surely in the Czech camp. Not too much diacetyl. Reminiscent of Czech lagers but not as good.

12oz bottle from The Beer Depot in Ann Arbor, MI. Pours a clear, golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is somewhat sweet and grainy with a light, crisp grassy hopping. Flavor is similar. Sweeter, grainy pale malts with a light, fruity grass. This does finish very dry with a light, grassy bitterness along with a touch of sweetness and earth before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a clean, easy drinking lager. Decent grassy dryness and a somewhat sweeter, grainy malt. This wasnt a bad pale lager.

Bottle. I am not a big lager fan, but this was pretty refreshing on hot day. Crisp with only very minor skunky tones. Clean finish, carbonation is moderate. I would have again when looking for this style.
