3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bottle of this fine beer came to me courtesy of Durhambeer!
Pours a very pale golden, perfectly clear, with a very small head.
The aroma is herbal and "robustly" hoppy. The malt sweetness while noticeable is either very low or hidden by the spicer & more herbal hop character.
The flavor is mineral-y & enjoyably bitter. The hops are well featured and of course very saaz-y with nice notes of grass, herbs, and mild fruit skin. The beer is only lightly sweet and very bright.

Beer 45 Asheville trip. Clear light gold, nice head. Aroma is crackery pils malts and floral hops. Flavor is a match, quite clean, with a bracing floral and slightly spicy hop finish. Really quite fantastic. Love finding a well made pils. Really a great beer to have fresh like this. A favorite from the trip.

Comes out of the bottle a strong, bubbly solar yellow with a fairly thick white head. For a pilsner, I say that’s good. Aroma is fairly strong, malty and yeasty with a hint of apple. Crisp, malty flavor has yeasty and bitter hoppy notes, a little hoppier than most pilses I have sampled. Texture is fairly fizzy, though it has about average body. At least it’s not watery. A decent pils. This is not my favorite style, but I’ll try just about any craft beer.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2015 Smell is slightly sweet malt, Not very good...taste and everything not the greatest...like a light pilsner (which I dislike)...just average to below average beer, a little too hoppy and pilsnery for Me x2

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Milltown. Pours sparkling golden. Denser white head. Sheety lacing. Nose is sharp lemon, gritty corn, herbal, fresh biscuit. Taste is snappy, crackery, small paper, sharp hoppiness. Solid. Not amazing. But on target. Too much newspaper/carbon is unfortunate.

Nicely structured if typical Czech beer. Fruity and light, well balanced. I'd drink it again.

Draft. Pours clear golden yellow with medium white head. Taste is sweet grain with grassy and floral notes. Saaz hops is fresh but not as crisp as I would like. Quite full mouthfeel for a pils Still, nice but a bit harsh around the edges.

Tap. Light amber with small head. Sweet and rather full bodied for a pils. Big hoppy finish.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Grainy and floral, grass, dandelion, and lillies on the nose. Clear yellow, medium sticky head. Flavor is lightly sweet, slightly vegetal, tinny. Grass is dominant, but lesser floral notes remain. Alcohol is fairly evident. I may be being too hard on pilsners lately, but this pilsner, while enjoyable, was lacking a certain clean quality I look for in this style.
