Golden pour with a slight haze. Slightly malty nose with some nice herbal and earthy hops. Easy to drink, a little bitter in the finish. Simple.

Can shared by Jeff, thanks. Gold color. Light bitterness and malt flavor
Good malt but lacks a hop profile that a good pilsner needs. Soft, smooth palate.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Pours golden with just a touch of hazy and a big foamy white head - a beaut. Nose is mildly citrus with some hay-like background malt notes - these hops seem like US hops tho, so a bit off-style. Flavor is pretty outstanding - they really capture the soft malt textures - they figured out exactly the right water ph for pilsen is my guess. Finishes with just a touch of palate clearing fruity bitterness. Very good for an American interpretation of a difficult style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can poured into Czech "holba" mug. Born on date reads "7/23/15"
Aroma - Hops are prominent on the nose. Grass, lemon, herbal. Faint yeast notes. Great intro.
Appearance - Aggressive pour produces a thick, frothy, white head. Beautiful golden hue. Spotty lacing.
Taste - Crisp, clean, and bright. Pale, semi-sweet malt meets lemon/ herbal hops. Well balanced, with the hops stealing a bit more of the show. Finishes bones dry with lingering yeast/ hop resin (perhaps some sulfur?).
Palate - Creamy, light-medium bodied.
Overall - Having just returned from Prague, I’d say this one holds up remarkably well with its Czech counterparts. The slightly more assertive, resiny hop character brings an American touch.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mild sweet grass aroma. Light yellow body with a burnt orange hue. Head is starts off big and settles to an inch of soap like bubbles. Crisp grain malt with a splash of bitterness. I even sensed some lemon on my palate but was brief. Dry citrus tart finish. Refreshing and friendly.
