From tap. Pours golden yellow, slight hazy and with a white head. Aroma is classic pilsener malt with a corn note. Flavour is soft malty, slight sweet with a good bitterness into the finish. Good brew.

A golden beer with an OK head. It has an aroma of hops - and a flavor of hops, slightly bitter. Definately a good beer, but if I want a czech pilsener I rather want Urquell.

(Bottle 50 cl) Incredibly beautiful full golden colour with a rather huge head. Fresh nose of barley. Lots of sweet malt and less bitternes than for instance Urquell. Velvety soft body. Having tried this on tap at the brewery assures me, that this simply must be the world’s best pilsener. No less.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tapped. Yellow/golden colour, decent white foamy head. Bready/hoppy nose with hints of grassiness. Flavour is quite hoppy with huge peak after a few seconds, the finish is quite "vegetably". Bittersweet aftertaste and leaves the mouth a bit sticky.

Bottled. Golden coloured, average head. Bready nose with a light touch of oily hops. Light bodied and extremely drinkable, yet firm. Balanced bitterness.

Bottle at home ... as part of the Mass (well probably just me and Ian) online tasting ... golden yellow ... thin white head ... metalic grassy hop nose ... all i dislike in a lager nose ... sweet grassy front .. light herbal tones ... hayish ... light bitter ... really i thought this one might be better than most lagers ... but its really not me at all... well who would have thought this wasnt a rerate ...

Nicely hopped example of a decent lager, very refreshing. Pales in comparison to other Czech lagers and pilsners, but still very drinkable.

2013-06-14, draught at Řlbaren, Copenhagen, 5-4-5-2-10=26
Deep blond color with nice compact head. In few words, it has a huge butter aroma that covers the malt; the malt flavor is tired, the bitterness is ordinary, the hop qualities are missing; and there is again some diacetyl.

Blond color. Light hay aroma. Weak body, dry, quite bitter at the end. Not what I expected.
