Description 

The Seedstock Premium Czech Lager is similar in many ways to a Czech Pilsner, but it has a richer malt character and is a little darker in color. Seedstock uses all Czech ingredients – grains, hops and yeast. The color is light golden amber with a malty sweet aroma. It has a rich and bready flavor with a very slight hint of caramel. Seedstock uses a generous amount of Saaz hops, which gives the beer a peppery dry finish.

Premium Czech Lager by Seedstock Brewery was Judged as a 3b-Czech Premium Pale Lager.

The beer pours a faintly hazed deep gold with a persistent white head. The nose seems Saazer like, but I also get a slight lemony edges that makes me think of something like Premiant. At any rate, the nose is really nice. Clean with a toasty malt backbone. At tasting, a bit less bitter than expected, which impacts the drinkability for me. Slightly fruity with a sweet malt character. The lingering bitterness comes through the finish, but after the sweetness drives over the palate, which impacts the balance. It seems on the sweet side overall and pils malt driven. A bit more attenuation would help the drinkability and thin the body a bit, as it's a bit big on the palate. Quite clean. Carbonation is good overall. Just wish it was a bit more in balance.
