Bottle. Color: Clear golden, frothy white head. Taste: Medium body, balance between sweet malts and bitterness. Rather strange fruitiness hints, slightly greasy. Bit watery.

czlowiekwiadro (655) - POLAND - JUL 17, 2016
zapach przyjemny, choć niezbyt czysty. lekko przypomina zieloną butelkę, do tego nuty słodowe i lekkie miodowe, wyraźne zioła i trochę zielonego jabłka/ogonka. kolor dość głębokiego złota, klarowny, piana biała, dość skąpa i nie trzyma się za długo. w smaku pełne, słodowe z lekko biszkoptową nutą. czuć lekkie posmaki kukurydzy (nie gotowanej) i kurzu. goryczka wysoka, wyraźna, ziołowa, czysta. nasycenie średnie do średnio wysokiego. piwo dobre i konkretne, ale niezbyt czyste w smaku i zapachu

midovark (507) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - JUL 6, 2016
0.5 l can. The usual pilsner-look, bitterness dominated aroma and taste. Short bitter finish, light body, lively carbonated. Slightly above average pilsner.

It taste little sour, grapefruit seeds, metallic taste and bad water. Medium bitter. Not so much taste. Boring.

Ritzn (375) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2016
As: breznak original böhmisch pils. Clear golden with little white head. Grassy hops also some candy-like malt. Taste is a little too bitter for me. But still malty sweetness. Overall ok.

Aroma - not that interesting. Slightly unusual. I can’t pinpoint exactly what it is. Some strange kind of yeast? Beautiful color. Taste... There’s something about this beer that I just like, but I can’t seem to figure out exactly what it is. It has just the right amount of sweetness with a hint of sourness, as well as really good bitterness in the finish. It has a special kind of character that many other "cheap" beers lack. I would have no problems identifying this one in a blind test. Good stuff.
