1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured into a pils glass.
2.5 A: Clear medium yellow color. Two and a half fingers of foamy white head. Retention is a bit below average and very little lacing is left.
2.5 S: Dirty herbalness makes this a lot less clean than I like my pilsners. Something along the lines of breadiness, but not less clean. Light grassy and hay qualities.
2.0 T: Less clean than the nose. The pseudo-breadiness is more intense and I don’t like it. Lightly grassy again with some hay. The problem is that the yeast wasn’t allowed to work cleanly.
2.0 M: Lighter medium to medium body. Too thick and muddled and lacking crispness. Carbonation level is fine though.
2.0 D: Not a good beer.
Serving type: can

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
June 2010: 12 oz Can (4% ABV) picked up at Ruby’s Inn outsdie Bryce Canyon NP.
Sat outside our motel room I poured the can into two toothbrush plastic cups, I had nothing else to use!
The beer was a golden pilsner colour (what a suprise) and had a pure white head which gave some good lacing on our plastic cups.
My notes mention a good body depth, that the beer had character and good attributes which came through from the start of the tasting.
All in all, a good pilsner, as good as many original Czech ones I’ve reviewed anyway.

2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slight strange aroma of mouldy cheese. Floral taste with pepper and grapefruit finish. Bitterness lingers. Apart from peculiar aroma, very drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is hoppy with a lemony/grassy type of hop and the malt is only slightly sweet.The appearance is golden with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with an astringent end. The palate is thin but right for the style. Overall I found the beer unenjoyable. It looked nice with a foamy head and the beer seems right for the style but it’s not enjoyable in any way.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden, topped with the firm white head, looks the part. The nose is floral, orange blossom and a touch of hay. Tastes lightly grainy, biscuity and with a good dose of bitterness, tastes the part of a proper Czech lager. Perhaps a little thin in the body but otherwise on the nail.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can thanks to Douglas. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges and laced. Aroma has a nice crispness with some grass hops and a nice hay and grain backbone. Flavor is similar with a nice crispness, light grass hops and a grain and bread backbone.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pretty. I’ll give it that. But I’m having a hard time getting over the green-apple-yeast flavor that lingers on the tongue after you sip this pint. The taste isn’t entirely off, but you wish the Saaz hops played a bigger role in balancing out this tart bastard. Eventually the flavor fades into a metallic, lemony aftertaste, not pleasant and quite prolonged. Nice lacing down my glass, though.
