Bottled. Very tasty, Saazy and bready beer. Unfortunately lacking in head, which mostly diminishes once poured. Long duration.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Best before bottle 6/30/2006 from Sams in Chicago consumed on 5/12/06. Foamy, huge creamy-ivory head is well-retained, showing light, spotty lacing. Intensely burnished brass body is luminous and shows a flurry of bubbles. Coming after Podkovan, anything is going to smell crisp and highly attenuated (no, but seriously, I actually didnt mind Podkovan). Crisp, mineralic, just plain aromatic (perfect is the only word I can say) styrian goldings explode on the nose with a wonderfully crisp lager yeast. Seems like they lagered this one amply. The flavor is crisp, biting and with that true mineralic water that balances sweet pils malt so wonderfully. I don’t even think this is the most amazing Bohemian Pils, but this is just such an intense style, with such a strong sense of malt and beautiful hops that it’s hard to really relax and see this for what it is.

larsniclas (5637) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2003
Oh yes! The special czech aroma and flavour; bread, some yeast, sweetish. This is my kind of beer.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2005
Golden with constant, tiny effervescence and a short, white head. Heady sourdough yeasts in aroma with a big pile of cut wet grass. Dusty floral perfumes emerge as it rests, showing through to the initial flavor as a floral-sweetness. Breadiness follows with almost-caramel malts. Finish is light bitters and light burnt grain with a lingering sensation of having licked the grasscatcher. Buttery mouthfeel, but in a good way. This beer was surprisingly diverse and intriguingly delicious.
