3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear golden brew with white head. Nice but somewhat weak hoppy aroma. Taste is basically the classic Pilsener style ala Pilsener Urquell - light malts up front with a good grassy / bitter hops finish. A bit on the tame side but as someone who at times likes a lighter bodied brew, I would make this a standard if it was available locally.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased at Trader Joe in Vegas. Pours a light hazy golden-amber colour with a frothy warm cap, good retention and lacing. Grainy smell at first with bread notes, but then some citrus spicy-grassy hops appear. The taste is quite cereal grain-like with some light sweetness and hops in the finish. Citrus-grass ones. Not so much a Czech-style lager, but a pretty decent refreshing grainy one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle, label says best before 11/25/15. Served in a pilsener glass, the beer pours a mostly clear gold color with about an inch and a half frothy white head that stayed around for a while. There’s a decent amount of lacing. Not much to the aroma, it smells like floral/grassy hops and some grainy malt. The taste is similar to the aroma, but luckily the flavor seems stronger in comparison. Also, there’s some citrus noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is light, it’s a bit crisp with moderate carbonation. Not too bad, for the price it’s worth picking up once. $1.08 for a single bottle from Trader Joe’s, of course.
