What the brewers say

“Our only lager, brewed with loads of imported Saaz hops and a bottom-fermenting yeast strain that leaves it a bit lighter with a lot of smoothishness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Light toasty pils malt with very light fruitiness and some sulfur. Very subtle floral, noble hop character. Malt is clean and almost bready. Some light vegetable notes.”

Flavor: “Sweet but balanced malt is a bit too toasty for the style. Little to no hop bitterness. A hint of ethanol. Clean, crisp finish, well-carbonated and dry. Some faint butter notes in the finish. Almost some caramel character.”

Overall: “Unbalanced, but in a pleasing way. Not quite a classic Czech Pilsner style, but enjoyable nonetheless. Hops could use a boost as it’s fairly delicate for the style. Refreshing and easy-drinking.”
