Golden body with a large white head. Sweet malt aroma. Flavor is more of the same with a nice hop finnish. Very well balanced with an exceptionally soft body.

The Lure:
Shining haystacks and straw-littered floors cover the splattered yeast. Hops are subdued but present within the hay, offering some citrus and barren oiliness.

The Festivities:
A mineral phantom betrays the wooden hop flavor. Hop bitterness is mostly herbal, and does benefit from some minty leafy sweetness. Soft and cuddly equilibrium like most well-brewed Czech pilsners, but not much to dissociate it from the pack.

A living room aquarium.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2007 Sampler from bottle at <a href=http://ratebeer.com/Place/illinois/orland-par Orland Park, This must just now be appearing in America. A great pilsener malt color, to be sure. Like any imported light lager, I suspect a lot of the spicy hop oils have gone away. So I taste a balanced bitterness to the malts, but not much more. Guess it’s not fair to seek out good imported pilseners, but I’m still in the hunt.

Sigmund (5726) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2005
Draught at Christian Firtal, Odense. ABV was 5%, like the brewery website says. Very nice Saazer aroma, flowers and honey, some fruit too. Reasonably well balanced flavour with a tolerable maltiness and decent hops which linger through the aftertaste.

Nice Pale Lager! Golden body with a creamy long lasting head. Perfect bitternes and sweet hopes. God aftertaste. I had this one in Croatia.

On tap at a beer garden in Prague. Bubbly and malty, pretty straightforward and plain, even cloying by the end.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2005 Drinkable. Gold with a sudsy head, the aroma is sweet grainy malt with a syggestion of hops. The flavor is malty, a bit too sweet for me, with a light floral hop finish.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2005
Golden, slightly hazy. Sweet yeasty finish. Not bitter enough. Fruity flavour with hints of banana and prunes. Quite unpleasant in this kind of beer.
