A very nice Czech pilsner. Very good for a mass-produced lager. Beats the American version any day.

Far better that American clone, still quite poor. Noticeable bitterness, malty aroma. Pours pale golden with small, quite stable head.

Bork (131) - Rockmart, Georgia, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Weak on flavors and aromas for a Czech Pilsner. Saaz hops are given a prominent place and there are no off-flavors, but ultimately this is watery and a bit bland.

vadie (669) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
Jaune pâle avec un petit tęte blanc. L’arôme des céréales et un petit peu d’agrumes florale. C’est aussi un peu acerbe. Le goűt est des graines legerment sucré avec trčs peu d’amertume dans la finale.

Alengrin (1210) - BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2014
One of the most classical Bohemian Pilseners around, brewed with pure ingredients in a more or less authentic way. Stable, snow white, moussy head, colour a pure golden blonde. Aroma of pure Bohemian Pilsener malts and herbal, Czech hops; taste malty, pure and a bit bready, ending in a refined aromatic hoppiness, relatively complex at least for a lager. Certainly one of the leading examples in its style.

While not a beer with a lot of flavour it is more drinkable and enjoyable than most lagers

Aroma: cereal and bread malts. Appearance: clear gold, small white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: light bitter continue, malty. Overall: decent Pilsner, light but not bland. Pint at U Medvidků, Prague.

Great Czech beer and great session beer no matter where you are in the world. The taste is mild, but obvious, the colour and head are pretty spot on even for such a commercial brew. Definitely my go-to beer in Czech Republic.
