Light, fresh and malty aroma. Fresh and light arrival followed by a distinctive bitterness that remains for quite some time. The mouth-feel is rather thin and watery though. Lighter carbonation than average in my opinion. Not extraordinary by any means, but still a good solid pilsner that goes down very easily in any situation.

Originally rated on 6/25/08. "I got this one as a single, wish i would have gotten a sixer! It pours a golden, fully carbonated body with a mid sized white cap, that left some lacing. The aroma was slightly skunky, it wasnt offensive but pleasant. Mouthfeel was full and smooth, went down easy. It tasted better as i drank it. I am not a big fan of lagers but this was a pretty good brew

Poured from an 11.2 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear light golden color with a thin white head. The aroma is light malt and grass. The taste is malt with some floral hops. A good beer. The bottle cap is a plain gold color.

Typisches tschechisches Lager. Würziger, leckerer Hopfen. Sehr kräuterig. Süße Malzbasis, nicht zu intensiv.

Fin gyllen farge, null skumtopp, lite kullsyre. Svak aroma. Litt mer fylde og smak en annen pils jeg har smakt.

Clear light yellow with white head that dissolve quikly. Aroma: opening of light herbal hop, then come the light base malt (cereal) with hints of citrus. Thin taste of sweet malt, little corn. Cereal and herbal aftertaste. Light Body, average carbonation. High drinkability for a pleasuring and refreshing light lager. One of the best industrial pilsner out there

120 years can edition - 120 B:Story. Pours golden clear with big white head. Flavour is malty, some sweet cookies with burned sugar as well. Taste is light, but follows the nose. Also some bitterness, a bit oily and some vanilla cream. Not bad for pilsener.

Color amarillo, muy poca espuma y poco duradera. Poco sabor, refrescante, carbonatada, malta. Simple.
