Comments: I’m going to say something about this beer that sounds like an insult but it’s not: it’s like water. Travel writer Rick Steves says that when you visit Prague the waiter will put a beer on your table upon seating just as you’d get a glass of water in the United States. And I can imagine that this is the beer that waiter would serve. It’s like water in all the positive aspects of water: cool, refreshing, crisp and mild. I expect it would be a good beer to drink at lunch when you have to go back to work in the afternoon. Mind you, it’s still beer. The glass I had featured a thick head that left behind beautiful lacing. The light aroma was grassy and floral. The flavor is grainy with a bit of sweetness and a touch of hops. All in all just good plain drinking beer.
