UPDATED: OCT 2, 2006 This was one of those beers that got me into beers, but after having it again i realise that iv come to better stuff. Aroma is reasonable and slightly sweet. Taste is a bit malty with quite a bit of carbonation, very dry finish. Its worth a bash this fellow as its a bit different to your usual lager, though nothing special.

It’s basically budweiser but it’s a lot better. A much better Pilsner then it’s American cousin.

On tap at The Lemon Leaf, Prague. Decent hoppy aroma. Plenty of bite on top of full sweet malts. One of the best mainstream pilsners, along with Urquell.

Light hops aroma with some malt. The color is a rich golden color with lots of carbonation but not much in the way of head. The taste is light and pleasant and not as watery as many pilsners. The flavors of the hops give it a small spice and citrus taste, but mostly you taste the sweet malts. The beer finishes just like it starts. A serviceable beer if you want a pilsner.

Slightly hoppy aroma. Clear golden color w/ a 1 finger head that dies quickly. A tad spicy & malty. IMO, a very solid daily lager. I realize it’s not the greatest lager out there but I’ve always liked it even though it’s a bit overpriced @ $8.99 a 6er. I could drink many of these. A great session beer if I’m in the mood to keep drinking for awhile.

Pours yellowish/golden with a creamy white head. Short retention. Cool bottle which is similar to Pilsner Urquell. Aroma had lemon, butter and saaz hops. Some apricot and citrus as well. Very malty taste with a good hoppiness throughout. Quite fruity. Terrific malty palate with butter and lemon. This has to be one of the top lagers in the world. Very good.

London - Gold in color, it has a nice sweet hoppy aroma. The flavor is similar but a little lighter and there is a nice little bite to it. It was quite nice.

Pours golden yellow with a fine white head that didn’t stay around for very long. Malty aroma with some nice grassy hops, a little metallic. Great palate, finely carbonated, smooth with a crisp finish and a nice mild hop flavour. Really enjoyable-- what a premium lager should be.
