3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lahev(@Tesco Karlsbad CZ):Deep golden, clear, lazy carbonation, mid-sized creamy white head with a good lace, sweet pale-malty nose with a delicate hoppy background; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied, but with a still detectable malty base; sweetish malty-bready finish, accompanied by a slight balancing hoppy touch. Simple and sweet, but not bad at all…

500ml bottle from Premium Czech Beers online. Pours clear golden honey, thin bubbly short-lived white head. Crisp mineral aromas, light grassiness. Taste is quite sweet, with a herbal hop backnote, slightly astringent. Creamy texture. Decent.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2005 As Ferdinand Vycepni Pivo Svetle.
Grainy, worty milkiness shyly peeks through the filtered light gold. A ring of head creates no lacing, this is pretty boring so far.
Subtle sweet malt husks suffer from a severe lack of hops. Very "vycepni", this light lager has a well-brewed malt body which sadly is burdened by the near absence of any other flavor. I still prefer water.
Dumbed down for the masses always frustrates me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle from Hypernova Praha-Nové Butovice. Clear golden yellow colour, large and very creamy white head. Malty nose. Rather full malty body, well-balanced with good aromtaic and bitter hops, resulting in a bitter-sweet character. Very slightly fruity with shy hints of apple. Pleasant carbonation. A superb desítka. Very tasty indeed, as are the other beers from Benesov.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sold in the states as Ferdinand Lager Beer, 4.0%. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Aroma is moderately malty (bread), lightly hoppy (flowers). Body is medium to dark yellow. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. A rather unclean and flimsy rendition.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2006 Excellent in its own style and not bad otherwise. Sampled from the tap. Gold and highly carbonated. Long lasting white head. Light hop aroma, and light bitter flavor; light all around. If you called it a pilsner, I wouldn’t call you a liar.
