2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fairly weak pilsener. Looks good. Sweeter than I expected. Missing the bite that you would expect. Would not order again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear and golden. Medium body, a little syrupy and thickish even. Very mild carbonation. Sweet and earthy malts -- a little too sweet, perhaps -- with hints of grains, cereal, and honey. Hops were herbal and a little flowery; only mildly bitter. Definitely had the Bohemian thing going on.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (bread), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), with a hint of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. This is likely a different batch than when I first had it, and it’s a little cleaner in the aroma now (or so I think). Too sweet, a BJs tradition, and not really something that can compete with the real Czech deal, but it’s passable on its own.
