The 12-ounce brown bottles of the Janácek Premium Czech Lager imported to the U.S. by Global Village Imports pour a clear golden color with a trace of white head and mild carbonation. The medium-bodied brew offers a full mouthfeel along with a clean pale malt flavor. The nearly even flavor balance is tilted by the welcome presence of the noble hop character. Overall, a clean lager that showcases its malt and hops Czech heritage. Although not labeled in English as one of the six standard brewery products, the flavor and body points to this brew being the 5% Extra Light Lager 12-degree beer from the brewery's lineup.
