Had this on draught in St. Charles, Illinois. This was nasty, reaffirming once again why I can't stand European Pilsners.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2003
Brown bottle. Typical bohemian Pilsener. Smooth in contrast to german Pilseners. A bit watery. But overall, very nice.

hopscotch (9962) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2003
Watery and thin. True to the style, I guess. A good pils, but it's a pils nonetheless. One of my very least favorite styles. No apologies. Good with spicy food!

imdownthepub (11145) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2003
Bottled, Filtered? Pale yellow with bubbly head. This is the real McCoy, sharp refreshing clean malt flavour with overlying hoppy flavours. The highest I've ever rated a Pilsner.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Bottled. Nice golden color with minimal head and lacing; the saaz hops dominate and provide a crisp refreshing flavor with very little malt. Definitely a classic pilsner; a great summer beer.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2003 Light golden color. Good head. Some hops in aroma (saaz?). Malt seems a little watery and dominated by hops. Overall, I was a bit dissapointed. I have had better pilseners.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - SEP 29, 2003
Pours a crystal clear gold, not too much head, but it leaves a nice lacing. Typical pilsner nose, great Saaz hop flavor. Nice pilsner.

jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Beautiful head. Very drinkable. If you take everything out of Anheiser-Busch Budweiser that isnt good and only left what was good this is what you would have.

desurfer (1245) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Light yellow body with a huge white head. Wonderful Saaz aroma and flavor, earthy and grassy. Smooth palate.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2003
Golden with a thick nedium head. Nice lacing.too. Fresh Saaz hops in aroma with hints of minerals. Fresh mineral flavour with hints of 'Baltic spring-breeze' and butter. a good Chech pils...
