Blonde dorée assez pâle. Mousse blanche disparaissant rapidement. Arômes de malt, céréalé.. On ne sent pas d’houblonnage. Rien de spécial. En bouche similaire, très peu d’amertume. Se rapprochant plus d’une pale lager que d’une pilsener. Plutôt déçu vu les notes.

Czech lager is the best in the world. Lovely stuff. Mild, well balanced and not as bitter as some Pilsners. Taste is grain and bread with a mild metallic edge. Dry crisp finish. Very enjoyable lager. Although I still think I prefer Staropramen in regard to Czech beer.

The best Czech lager you can possibly buy outside Czech(?) I haven’t yet drink any better lager. Nice medium body, round sweetness with beautiful Saaz aroma hop throughout. Almost no head retention, though.

Bottle 0,5l. Beer on half way between pale lager and pilsner. Indefinite aroma, fresh malty flavor with mild hop bitterness, drinkable and refreshing.

Rotin (44) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 25, 2014
Four bottles in four days. One of them was very bad, beer with salty astringency in flavor. The others, brewed different date, was better. Very smooth mouthfeel, light body. Malty, grainy flavor, only slight bitterness. Good drinkable. This beer is on half way between czech pilsner and standard pale lager.

Loiríssima!!! Que espuma cremosa!!!! Cheiro de malte... Doce... Na intensidade certa. Um pouquinho de lúpulo. Bom amargor, boa carbonatação. O retrogosto me pareceu doce... sabão... Sei lá, talvez a minha expectativa fosse demasiada.

Bottle. Pours clear yellow golden with very white one finger head and high carbonation. Aroma is pilsner malt, subtle butterscotch and some yeasty spices. Taste is slightly sweet with light fizzy body and crisp medium bitter finish.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2014 Rien d’exceptionnel, mais quand même sympa. Légèrement sucrée, céréalière, très sec. Une texture très légèrement onctueuse.

0,5l bottle. I think this beer has a better reputation as it tastes. Ok its easy drinkable but theres nothing special on this beer. Average.
