Grainy nose with a light hops presence. Pours a sparkling blonde with a frothy white head
that is mostly diminishing without much lace. The brew has good balance with some
sweetness and a light acidity prevailing, and is pretty neutral; but has good flavor for a
lager and a decent finish for the style. The light and watery body is crisp and clean, with a
slightly dry feel to the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2006 Re-rate: Bottled. Bubbly and deep golden. Wonderful, dark hoppy aroma (Saaz-y!). Bready. Sweeter than I remembered, slightly less bitter. Malty breadiness. Fat bodied and very drinkable, but I still think it’s overrated. Will try again on tap.[3.0]
Original: In short, far better than the other Budweiser, the one we all know and hate. If you’re able to find this, though, you should be able to find better. [2.8]

Got a bottle (Svetly lezak) while in Czech Republic. Pours clear straw yellow with active carbonation and thin white head. Aroma of sweet malt, more straw, dust and some light citrus. Flavor of sweet malt, light citrus. Thin palate with very active, fizzy carbonation.

Golden with a white head. Heavily carbonated. Aroma is skunky. Good malt body to it. Very light and fizzy on the tongue. The hops are weak and only noticable right away, the flavor then fades into sweet water towards the end.

My Slovak roomate brought me a can from home. I only wish I had this kind of Budweiser at my home. Poured colden with a good with head. Floral aroma with a good hoppy flavor. Compared to the belgains i’ve been drinking, this isn’t too interesting, but it is certainly one of the best lagers I’ve had.

Nice clean flavor, although a bit mild in my opinion; the grassy hops do come through and blends well with the malts. A well made and enjoyable example of this style. Get it in the large 500ml brown bottle as I did.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The best example of a Czech golden beer. You can taste the malt/hop ingredients which is sadly missing from so many ’fast brewed lagers’ I have found it at its best jsut lightly chilled, 12-14^c

The good bud. This one is worth the price. A great refreshment. Tick white head, golden color, floral and grassy aroma. Hoppy flavor. Light beer that goes down well.

4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The way a bohemian pils ought to look and taste--deep golden in color, dense head, well balanced between crisp hoppiness and lightly sweet maltiness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very clear golden yellow with a snow white head. The aroma is a sweet, but quite clean malt aroma. Light and crisp pils flavors. Sweet malts with decent activity. Not real hoppy, but a mild grassy hop on the finish. Nice clean beer.
