Douberd (2892) - Arnhem, - JAN 28, 2013
500 ml bottle, bought in Germany under the name Breznak Original Bohmisch Pils. Poured into a footed pilsner glass. Colour is very deep yellow-golden, with something more of two fingers of foam. White and soapy, with very good retention and heavy lacing left on the glass. A constant stream of bubbles is rising to the surface. Aroma is quite hoppy, but not as much as I would expect from a Czechish pilsner. Some light malt aroma too, along with adjuncts. Rice, maybe? Nice bitter taste. Unfortunately, very metallic at first, along with this adjunct flavour, but it gets much better on the aftertaste where the hops really shine, with a long finish as well. Medium thickness on the body, very dry on the palate and just the right amount of carbonation. I really liked this one, very good.

jann3 (156) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Pours clear golden. Malty aroma. Taste is dominated by malty notes, but it finishes with a slightly bitter hoppy notes. Very basic pilsner. Nothing special but drinkable and refreshing brew. (0,5l bottle, labeled as "Original Bömisch Pils", bb 04.09.15)

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2014
2nd Oct 2014, 0.5 litre handled glass of draught sat in the sun within the Vysehrad castle complex in Prague. Just what I needed after a couple of hours wandering around sightseeing and following a guide book trail. Typical Czech Pilsner/Lager: golden, clear and bright with a white foaming head on top. Malts just about rule the taste and aroma with the hop content coming in a close second. Refreshing and thirst quenching.
