Clear, pale, gold with good, foamy white head / Bright nose of lemon and grain / Light body, crisp, with long, dry, hoppy finish / Flavors of lemon, bread, grass, and grain / Best pale, pilsner really, that I’ve ever had.

Bottle. Light, flavorful, and refreshing. A very good beer without an overload of hops. Really enjoyed this.

This is an excellent lager, IMNSHO. Absolutely delicious. Hoppy, just like I like, but also nice and malty. I continue to be more and more impressed with the Sierra Nevada brewery.

(2011 Release) Another entry into my personal BHoF! This brew pours a rich amber-gold colored body and sports a frothy/bubbly head which dissipates to a thin head with good retention and lacing. Scents of sweet malts and citrus-y fruits. Flavors of sweet malts and citrus-y fruits are absolutely amazing! The body is light, crisp, and dry which makes for an incredibly easy-drinking brew. When compared against other Czech lagers (whether imported or domestic) this one has them beat hands down! Definitely a brew to be enjoyed on hot Texas summer days; but also an excellent brew to enjoy year-round. luminous pale gold, very slight haze, and stark white head that retains a thin head for the duration of the pint.

Crisp taste, nice balance of hop and malt, light enough to drink in the sun, heavy enough to let you know you are drinking a beer. One of my all-time favorites.
