Krušovice Imperial: How a Pilsner Should Taste

I tried this Krušovice Inperial in honor of my daughter. Next semester she will studing in the Czech Republic. As it happens, I've also been wondering what American pilsner might taste like if they weren't, well, so bad. This is how I'd like them to taste.

You can taste the heritage of great Czech beers in the American examples, but without the character evident in this beer. First, look at the rich color. The richness continues through the mouth-feel. This beer is full of flavor, but refreshing, not heavy. If American pilsners tasted like this, we wouldn't have needed the craft beer revolution.
