First and foremost, if I was comparing this to just the US version of Bud, it'd get 5's across the board. Pours a light golden color with a decent head, no lacing, but lots of carbonation. Smells nice and malty. Tastes malty, yeasty, and has just a touch of hops. Quite good. Mouthfeel is very full and creamy. Drinkability is very nice as well. What a great lager; I'll definately be going for this one again.

Cyrstal clear and pale as anything you can think of. Little head and lots of bubble action. Aroma is not strong at all. Inital taste is crisp and ends with a smooth aftertaste. The malty taste is the dominate taste. A solid average tasting beer, but nothing special.

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - FEB 21, 2004
One of the finest examples of this style. Great summer session beer, a true quencher. Good with food. Not my favorite style by a long shot. Well balanced, with a nice noble crisp hop finish.

Timmy (15) - San Pedro, California, USA - FEB 19, 2004
This Czech pilsner pours a bright yellowish amber with a small white head. The aroma is somewhat spicy and hoppy, with a bubbly grain taste. Worth having again!

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2004
Light amber orange, white head. Aroma is of floral Saaz hops. Bready flavour with some yeastyness behind the light oily hops. Light, balanced. Not a bad beer. Bottle.

Not much aroma. Head is white and average. Light amber color. Starts tasteless, ends with small hoppy flavour. Dissapointing Czech beer. (3/3/5/2/9 2.2)
Re-rate, bottled (BB 03/2005)
Golden lager color, small white head. Sweet malty, almost corn-like aroma. Thin, hoppy finish. (3/2/5/2/8 2.0)

LordNeuf (136) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 28, 2004
A deep amber look with a white foamy head. The flavor wasn't strong, had no overtones or potent aftertaste. Infact it had no flavor at all. Help, I can't taste my beer!

Light, horribly skunky aroma. Slight woody flavor. overall unexciting.

Lovely white head, looks like a pilsner should. Nice medium hop taste and light fruit notes. Far and away ahead of its namesake.
