Pours pale golden with a small white head that shortly disappears. Aroma of malt and grassy hops. Tastes of malt and mild bitterness, some sweetness. Fairly nice and easy to drink.

A very worthy beer. It has a good clean flavour whose profile is accurately maintained from batch to batch. I get sweet malt against a tart effect probably from the yeast, good hop character well-melded, and some oily notes. A classic from a country which knows all about great beer. Gary

Bottle. Aroma is hoppy. Taste is fresh sweet, and a medium bitter. Bloemig, houterig

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden colour with small off white head. Noses of straw, and barley. Light and fizzy. Nice with beer.

As far as I’m concerned this is what most North American commercial beers try to (but obviously cannot) be... A wonderful "everyday" beer. Not a work of art, but very well-balanced, subtle and drinkable. Beautiful golden colour with a generous white head that dissipates quickly. Nice yeasty aroma with light citrus and cereal notes. The first taste is almost immediately somewhat tart and hoppy and is carried well by a good dose of CO2. Mild bitter aftertaste. Light but not watery. Great beer... Na zdraví!

Pale lagers, perhaps my least favorite style there is. Tough to rate I suppose because of what they are, bland, watery, unremarkable. This one surprised me though with the amount of flavor in it. The flavor is bread and cereal, but still, at least its something.

Clear amber color, white head. Medium body, average carbonation. Aroma is floral hops, grain. Light sweet with medium bitterness at the end. Good one.

Excellent Pilsner! Refreshing and ideal to have it very cold on a hot day. Maybe his bastard brother should learn a little from him.
