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.

Pours a crystal clear gold, not too much head, but it leaves a nice lacing. Typical pilsner nose, great Saaz hop flavor. Nice pilsner.

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.

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...

Had this as an opener at a local tasting and not bad for a green bottle. This one is excused...does not have that usual skunkiness that most of its predecessors do. A very nice golden pour, into a sparkling amber appearance. Just very smooth and easy to drink and would be the perfect session beer.

ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2003
This is what a pilsner is supposeed to taste like. Some nice hops flavor with a malt back yet crisp and extremely drinkable. Nothing better on a hot day.

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2003 green bottle, but of all evidence well protected contentup to Canada. Pours a clear golden body with a small white head that turns into a little white ring rapidly. Fine herbal hops aroma. Very good malt insistance, grassy, earthy, smooth and light bodied with a light and enjoyable hop bitterness finish. It's just extremely easy to drink and proposes an impressive balance.

Nice smoothness and balance. One of the more flavorful pilseners I've had. Refreshing, highly recommended.

Green 12oz bottle. Pours a nice golden color with lots of carbonation. Floral nose. Very smooth flavors with a nice finish. Very nice pils.
