God řl. Mild smak. God til alle anledninger. Samtidig er den for tam til ĺ drikke for seg selv kvelden ut.

Derbeth (200) - Kraków, POLAND - APR 23, 2014
Bottle. Weak aroma of malt. Light bitterness. Head does not last long. Acceptable, but below average when it comes to Czech pilsners.

.5 liter green bottle, which is about 17 ounces. Drink by 1-27-15... pretty long shelf life. My guess is that this was bottled recently. Appearance: Pours a perfectly clear yellow color with a head that goes away almost instantaneously. No lacing. Looks alright for what it is. Smell: Pale malts, hay, and maybe the slightest amount of hops. Not great, but a decent smelling pils. A pretty classic sort of aroma. Taste/feel: The most pleasant thing about this beer that I can tell is the mouthfeel. Too many mass produced beers like this don’t have anything other than a super light body with aggressive carbonation. This one has a light/medium smooth feel with a moderate carbonation. The flavor is also better than the smell. Some of that hay, pale malt, and slight hop bitterness with a biscuit and subtly sweet aftertaste. A very drinkable pils with nothing off about it. There’s nothing especially unique about this beer, but it’s just a very well made pilsener that’s worlds better than American Budweiser.

Golden pour with a thin whit head. Grain and cereal aroma, bit of a cardboard as well. Similar taste, little hops. Decent pilsner

A strong brass color with a solid head that doesn’t overstay it’s welcome. Lovely subtle aroma - a sweet, gentle hay air haunted by a calloused hops. The hop is indisputably present but it is not overwhelming. The hop can be faint like a dusty mist left by a fleeting phantom and then hit intensely like an ethereal shiver as it passes right through you. It is slightly sweet and lightly bitter. It is very nice that the hops linger even after the curtain is drawn. Overall, it is very refreshing and complex - a top beer.
