Czech Pale Lager

Overall Impression: A lighter-bodied, rich, refreshing,
hoppy, bitter pale Czech lager having the familiar flavors of the
stronger Czech Premium Pale Lager (Pilsner-type) beer but in a
lower alcohol, lighter-bodied, and slightly less intense format.

Aroma: Light to moderate bready-rich malt combined with
light to moderate spicy or herbal hop bouquet; the balance
between the malt and hops may vary. Faint hint of caramel is
acceptable. Light (but never intrusive) diacetyl and light, fruity
hop-derived esters are acceptable, but need not be present. No

Appearance: Light gold to deep gold color. Brilliant to very
clear, with a long-lasting, creamy white head.
Flavor: Medium-low to medium bready-rich malt flavor with
a rounded, hoppy finish. Low to medium-high spicy or herbal
hop flavor. Bitterness is prominent but never harsh. Flavorful
and refreshing. Diacetyl or fruity esters are acceptable at low
levels, but need not be present and should never be

Mouthfeel: Medium-light to medium body. Moderate

Comments: The Czech name of the style is světlé výčepní
